Best Animated Movies of All Time
At first glance, we think that animated movies are created with a focus on children, but when we watch these movies, we see that they are designed for audiences of all ages. And some even surprise the audience with the courage to express clearly the issues that Hollywood productions are reluctant to address. Animated movies represent a completely different aspect of the film industry with its capacity to reflect the limitlessness of thought on the big screen, pure imagination.
Animated movies are not just high-tech productions developed with high-tech computer software. Almost since the early years of cinema, animated movies have been shot using the techniques of their time. Also, watching some of the animated movies developed decades ago gives the same and even more pleasure than watching the high-tech productions of today.
In fact, the development of technology has brought the ability to make more detailed images in a short time and increased the visual splendor of the films. However, whether animated movies are drawn with a pencil or created with a tablet, the secret of these productions is that it touches the emotionality of the human soul. The most important effect of animated movies on the child is that it triggers children to question what is happening around them, which plays an essential role in the development of new generations.
There are many animated movies that have marked Hollywood history. Most of them are filmed in Hollywood studios, and some of them bear the signature of world-famous Japanese directors. However, what makes animated films beautiful is that each one has universal values. We've put together some of the best animated movies of all time and have listed them for you. If there are animated movies that you haven't watch, we recommend that you take the time to watch each of these unique productions.
