List Rules Vote up the movies based on their use of CGI to enhance the story.

There are so many movies made for children today that there needs to be something that makes a picture stand out. The best CGI effects in kids films are used to add that extra layer by creating a sense of awe and wonder for its young spectators and even for their parents.

Perhaps no genre lends itself better to the use of computer-generated imagery like a kids movie. Imagination often pushes filmmakers to conceive of a world where kids can get totally lost. These films do not necessarily need to be “realistic,” in fact, realism is about the farthest thing from a kid’s mind when watching the incredible world created in a movie like Up or Finding Nemo. The best CGI scenes in kids movies take their audience hundreds of feet up in the air, or hundreds of feet below the sea.
