List of the best 2009 animation movies, ranked by how many upvotes they've received by other fans of the genre. Animated movies have come a long way in the last 50 years, with traditional cartoons being replaced by CGI animation from companies like Pixar and Disney. Not all of these animated films were released in theaters, but even the ones that went straight to DVD are still pretty good. These are all the animation movies that defined the year 2009, so vote for your favorites and help them rise to the top. This poll is also a great resource for finding new movies that you haven't already seen, especially since you can watch trailers for each film right on this page. To make sure this list is as accurate as possible, please don't downvote a movie if you haven't seen it.

A list made up of movies like Up and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. This isn't necessarily a list of all animation movies from 2009, but it does contain all the ones worth watching.
