My All-Time Favourite Animated Movies


Animated movies are for anyone and everyone. And, the best part is that they carry a sense of nostalgia, a piece of our childhood with them. I, for one, have a weakness for animated movies and these are my all-time favourite.

Spirited Away

Spirited away is a fantasy and coming of age film. The story revolves around a moody ten-year-old. While she is travelling to a new neighbourhood, she, along with her family enter the world of Kami (spirits). This film keeps you hooked throughout and once it ends, you learn a few life lessons.

How To Train Your Dragon

How to train your dragon is a story about an awkward fifteen-year-old who forms an unlikely friendship with a ferocious dragon, in a place where humans and dragons are always at odds.

 It’s about their journey together, and how the scrawny, awkward boy brings peace and harmony between humans and dragons. The story always warms my heart and that’s friendship goals right there.

Howl’s Moving Castle

I first watched Howl’s Moving Castle when I was in class 12 and since then it has been one of my favourites. It is an animated, fantasy film where a young girl named Sophie comes across a wizard named Howl, while on her way to meet her sister. It is a fascinating story, one that will keep you hooked.

Toy Story

What if all your toys lead a secret life of their own? In the first instalment, we are introduced to Woody and Buzz Lightyear. When young Andy is given an action figure, Buzz Lightyear for his birthday, his vintage cowboy doll, Woody thinks he has been replaced. And, what follows is a series of adventures amongst the toys.

Princess Sarah

This is a special mention. Although not a movie, this is an animated series with 46 episodes. It is the story of a young girl Sarah, who is the daughter of a wealthy English father. However, when tragedy strikes, Sarah has to work as a maid in her school. It is an adorable story, the one that makes us believe kindness always pays.
