Well, now that countdown for 2020 is officially begun, it is time to slow down a bit and look back at all the good and not-so-good things we got to witness in 2019.
Long gone are the days when animated movies were just for kids. With the CGI and layers of technical upgrades, animated movies are as good a treat as for anyone as for little ones. With Hollywood raising its bar with each passing year, never a parent will be bored or found sleeping again while accompanying the kid for the movie. With back to back releases of some much-awaited sequels and remakes, the year was blessed with a slew of some of the classic animated movies. Here are best animated movies of 2019 that we hope you have not missed:
Toy Story 4:
With a google-eyed, pipecleaner-arm character, “Toy Story 4” was easily the most heartwarming, tear-jerking, and riotously funny one in its franchise. The movie was as satisfying for adults as for kids as this might be the first film of the series that actually feels more relatable to the grown-ups. No wonder, the movie is nominated for Best Animated Movie in Oscars 2020.
Well, we all have been waiting for Frozen 2 and it is safe to say that it was worth the wait. Kids who loved the first movie and everyone else will probably adore this darker and more mature take on the characters they loved. Do not end 2019 before catching up on with this gem.
The Lion King:
Our childhood memory got a CGI makeover and made way into our lives as well into our hearts once again. The Lion King has a strong cast, outstanding visuals, and the classic animal-centric take on Hamlet which make this infinitely more watchable than some of the studio’s previous retellings. Its beat-for-beat adaptation made many even the coldest hearts warm with nostalgia.
How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World:
What could be any other perfect way to end this beloved trilogy? Visually stunning yet poignant in its own way, the movie grapples the plot with more complex themes than before, making for a truly satisfying yet bittersweet conclusion.
The Secret Life Of Pets 2:
The pets embarks on another series of misadventures as Max, a neurotic dog adjusting to a new baby in his human household while a deranged rabbit with dreams of superhero grandeur takes his world to a roller coaster ride.
How can 2019 be gone with out Prince Ali dancing to woo Princess Jasmine? The movie was a treat to eyes as well as ears as it took us back in time on the streets of Arabia. Definitely one of the best animated movies of 2019!
