Animated movies to watch this weekend

As long as there have been movies, there have been animated movies. From traditional hand-drawn animation to computer-generated graphics, animation has proven itself to be one of the most popular movie genres in history. In this list of animated movies, we’ll share with you some of the best animations to watch if you’re looking for an entertaining movie or TV show this weekend. While there are plenty of options available to enjoy your time off work, these are some of the most well-received and widely watched animated films in history.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Will you see it or not? If you don’t get a chance, we suggest watching the animated Spider-Man TV show. And if you don’t have time for that, make sure you see The Lego Movie, which was written by one of Spider-Verse’s writers and producers.

Mary Poppins Returns

Mary Poppins is back in a live-action version of her original film, starring Emily Blunt. Get your tickets now if you want to catch it on opening night. I can't wait! There are a ton of other cool animated movie out right now too; you could even spend your whole movie watching week at home just catching up on animated flicks. Or if you're looking for something new, check out Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and Ralph Breaks The Internet. These are really great follow ups for both these franchise that I know fans will love. The one I'm most excited about though is The Grinch, which is an original story from Illumination Entertainment based off Dr.

Dr. Seuss' The Grinch

This seasonal classic is always fun and a great way to get into that holiday spirit. The Grinch (Jim Carrey) is an evil creature who's developed quite a hatred for Christmas, which he vows one year not to participate in. But then he meets Cindy Lou Who (Taylor Momsen), who wins him over with her sweet spirit. The movie stays true to Dr. Seuss' original story and is sure to be a hit at any family gathering or holiday party. Rated PG, it's not suitable for younger kids; instead, they can enjoy The Grinch cartoon TV show on Amazon Prime Video or other channels such as Boomerang (which shows vintage cartoons).


Ten animated films I would suggest watching are The Lego Movie, Despicable Me 2, Monsters University, Frozen, Up!, Tangled, Wreck It Ralph, Ratatouille and Zootopia. With all of these great choices for animated films to see in theaters you can't go wrong with picking any one of them or maybe even all ten. Now get out there and have a great time at your local theater!
