A list of all the best animation movies ever made, many of which are streaming on Netflix and Amazon Prime. Check out which of your favorite kids' and family movies are streaming on Netflix Instant and Amazon Prime

Animated films for kids and adults are included in this list so you can try and find something that isn't irritating to watch nine million times. These are all the animated movies out there. You can't really go wrong with anything from Pixar, if you want to find something for the whole family. Be careful with any of the indie animated films out there, though, because those can get a little awkward to watch with a group of kids.

Anyway, this animation movie list can be sorted by cast, year, director, and other relevant categories. This list of animation films also contains titles of each movie that can be clicked on for more information about the film. This animation films list can also be copied to start your own. Didn't find what you were looking for on this list? I suggest checking out anime movies, superhero movies, alien movies or even the 3D movies list.

Steven Spielberg and Spike Jonze are among the directors who have worked on Animation movies in the past.
