List Rules Vote up the best movies for ten year old girls to watch.

There is truly something for every young one on this list of movies for 10 year old girls. Princesses, a magical nanny, and a group of goonies seeking pirate treasure are just a few of the heroes and heroines that are sure to delight. Here are the top films for 10 year old girls.

A tween girl is still going to be into animated movies. Frozen, Finding Nemo, and Inside Out are all classics that have to be included on this roundup. However, 10 years old is not too young to get into live action movies as well. There is an endless charm to be found in the rebooted Mary Poppins Returns and timeless magical romantic comedy in The Princess Bride.

What should 10 year old girls watch? That’s up to you to decide. Go ahead and let us know by voting up or down on the list below. Don't see a movie on this list you think would be great for a 10 year old girl to watch? Feel free to add it to the list.
