Behind every good animated movie is an equally impressive movie poster, but between the classic Disney movies to the newer CGI animated films, the battle for the best animated movie poster continues. You can be the judge or even add your own favorite poster to this of the top animated movie posters of all time.

Movie posters for animated films evolved throughout the years just as the quality of the animation within each movie did as well. Older movies, such as the Disney flicks like Pinocchio and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the first Disney production, came with basic posters, while the newest movies, complete with computer-generated animation, are detailed, crisp and exciting.

But which is best? The classic or the new and improved? Vote for your favorite animated movie poster or add one we've missed!
