7.The Princess And The Frog

A waitress, desperate to fulfil her dreams as a restaurant owner, is set on a journey to turn a frog prince back into a human being, but she has to face the same problem after she kisses him. I think personally this film work well with the diversity aspect, with a really cool jazz soundtrack and it is a female driven and that is really important, it is well – made and it is old school which I really admire.

A young silver dragon teams up with a mountain spirit and an orphaned boy on a journey through the Himalayas in search for the Rim of Heaven. Everyone slaughter this film but for me personally this is surprisingly really good, it is well – meaning and at least this is memorable and it actually got an easy-to-follow story, it also got great scenery and overall this is a crowd pleaser and with great characters.

5.Puss In Boots

An outlaw cat, his childhood egg – friend and a seductive thief Kitty set out in search for the eggs of the fabled Golden Goose to clear his name, restore his lost honour and regain the trust of his mother and town. Fantastic vocal talent and everyone in this film is superb and brim with comic one liner, it is entertaining and action packed and overall this film is simply enjoyable.

4.Mary And The Witch’s Flower

Mary is an ordinary young girl stuck in the country with her Great – Aunt Charlotte and seemingly no adventures or friends in sight, Mary find a rare plant and an old broomstick with a black cat plus a magical world.

3.My Neighbour Totoro

Having watching this film and I thought wowed as it is simply breath-taking, it about adolescent and growing up and I’m sure people will connect with that message, the characters is likeable and it is one of those film that is sad but also happy at the same time.

2.Shrek (2001 – 2010)

A mean lord exiles fairy-tale creatures to the swamp of a grumpy ogre, who must go on a quest and rescue a princess for the lord in order to get his land back, Shrek also meet eccentric people along the way of his self-discovery journey. Definitely an upbeat film that will capture people heart and the vocal is superb, the soundtrack is brilliant and this film is suitable for all ages.

1.Kubo And The Two Strings

A young boy named Kubo must locate a magical suit of armour worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit from the past. Cool and stylish and it is heartfelt, moving and poignancy especially the beautiful ending, I actually connect with this film as it about finding yourself and try to fitted in a world, the visual and the scenery is fantastic in this gorgeous looking film and it is powerful and it leaves you a lasting impression on you.

  1. I have only seen Shrek and Kubo of those selections Mark, and I enjoyed them both. This is not a genre that I have watched a lot, but here are some suggestions for fantasy animation films:
    Alice in Wonderland – as you know I’m not a big fan of Disney but I liked this 1933 animated version of the story.
    Alice – a completely different version of the story by Jan Svankmajer. Scary!
    Spiderman into the Spider Verse – interesting take on multiple universes.
    Yellow Submarine – complete animated fantasy featuring The Beatles
    Fantasia – another Disney film from 1940. This one introduced classical music to a lot of children.
    When the Wind Blows – animated fantasy about nuclear holocaust. Not light entrtainment!
