The Best Animated Films of 2013

List of the best animated films of 2013, as ranked by film critics, movie lovers, and those in need of family entertainment. While animated films are often the surest way to entertain the whole family without worrying about inappropriate content, there aren’t always a ton of films to choose from. Animated movies are so difficult and costly to make that usually there are very few released throughout the year. However, since these movies take so much time and energy to make, it’s almost a guarantee that the film will be quality entertainment that the whole family can enjoy.


2013 saw the release of some amazing animated films, each with unique stories and fun characters that children love. There were quite a few sequels released, including Despicable Me 2, The Smurfs 2, and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. Monsters University was a prequel to the much beloved Monsters Inc from over a decade before. Original animated movies like The Croods and Epic also entertained children, families, and the young at heart.


What were the best animated films of 2013? Even though there weren’t that many options to choose from, 2013’s animated movies delighted audiences from all over the world.
