30 Non-Disney Animated Movies You’ll Definitely Want To Watch

Animated movies are quite widely watched and enjoyed by people around the world, but most of them being Disney. However, some animated films, other than Disney, can be equally as good – maybe even better. And they’re very underrated.

Even I enjoy a good animated film from time to time. So, here is a list of some non-Disney animated movies, suggested by people, that you’ll surely love:


#1 Anastasia


“Anastasia was my ‘princess’ growing up. When I visited my grandmother with my siblings, she would allow each of us to pick a movie. I picked Anastasia without fail every single time.”

#2 The Secret of Kells


“My grandparents were Irish immigrants. Since their passing, I have held fast to their memory and my lineage. To see their history and folklore portrayed in such an enchanting film meant a lot to me. It frustrates me that so little people know this film.”

#3 Spirited Away

Studio Ghibli

“Apart from the truly beautiful and stunning artwork and character designs, it’s very inspiring and full of characters who mature and change. Chihiro in particular does a lot of growing. She starts out a sulky child and becomes a confident girl ready to take on whatever comes. It has strong female roles, a ton of imagination, and a happy ending. Truly magical.”



#4 The Prince Of Egypt


“The Prince of Egypt is one of the most beautiful animated films ever made. The animation is exquisite and the soundtrack is amazing (not just the Whitney/Mariah duet). The story of the deliverance of the children of Israel always seems current and topical to whatever horrors the news brings us each day.”

#5 Thumbelina

Warner Bros 

“It’s a little dated, but it’s such a wonderful, forgotten gem. Jodi Benson shines as the voice of Thumbelina, and the song ‘Let Me Be Your Wings’ is so gorgeous and sweet. Really, all the songs are brilliant. When I think of all my dreams and imaginings from my childhood, I think of this film.”
