The Best Movies With Elves

List Rules
The movie does not have to be directly about an elf or elves but they should play a significant part in the narrative.

As you watch the best movies with elves, you'll soon discover there are a lot more stories to tell with these magical creatures that fall outside of the Christmas season. Sure, there are plenty of Christmas movies that prominently feature elves like The Santa Clause and Elf, but you'd be surprised how many other fantasy movies are out there that draw inspiration from European folklore. 

Legolas from The Lord of the Rings series is an elf, and he represents his people well as he travels with Aragorn and Gimli. You may also remember the Dark Elves from Thor: The Dark World.

It just goes to show there's more than one way to incorporate elves into a story.
