Some of the best and most beloved movies feature cute pets, barnyard critters, jungle animals, and dangerous beasts. What is the best animal movie of all time? This is a crowdranked list of great movies that star real, animated, or animatronic animals. Pet movies aren't just for the dogs anymore. What's the best movie about animals? If a movie makes you cry or cheer or feel unusually invested... odds are good that there's a plucky animal involved. If a film makes you grip your arm rests, cover your eyes, and feel like something's crawling on you, there might just be an animatronic shark or CGI spider on the screen. (But we'd rather look at cute baby animals.)

Some of the most heartwrenching scenes in movies involve children or strong heroic lead men losing their beloved dogs or horses. The best talking animal movies have a diverse mix of animal actors, including cats, dogs, birds, monkeys, and sea mammals. Voice talent from famous A-list actors provides laughs and quotable lines for both children and adults.

These are the best movies with animals either as the main characters or as the main focus. Vote up your favorites to move them higher on the list, or do a full re-rank to create a list of your favorite animal movies. If you see your favorite animal films are missing, go ahead and add them!
