QUOTE OF THE DAY
When you think positive, good things happen.
When people think of kid’s movies, they think of wondrous, colorful, whimsical, and exuberant. Sure, there are kid’s films can even become agents of nightmare fuel in and of themselves, but most of them have some sort of happy ending involved. Usually, it’s something like animated fare like the Lion King, claymation like Wallace & Gromit, or live-action fare like the Bad News Bears or the Mighty Ducks. With that in mind, which of these films are the best movies for kids of all time? Here’s the topmost batch of the cream-of-the-crop films that, more or less, are the consensus best kid films as far as many critics and movie goers are concerned. Also, to no one’s surprise, the best kids’ films are all animated fare, whether animated by Pixar, Disney, or Studio Ghibli.
Why the Top Kids’ Films Are All Animated
It’s hard to find the best animated film in the Disney vault simply because it’s so extensive. It might not be one of those funny movies for kids, but it’s certainly a classic in and of itself. Some readers might even complain with not including Frozen or Lion King as among the best of the best Disney has to offer, but in fairness to this list, this film is as iconic as they come.
It’s no coincidence that Disney’s logo theme is an orchestral version of “When You Wish Upon a Star”, a song from Pinocchio. This movie remains a classic not only to Baby Boomers but also to their children, their children’s children, and up until the Millennials because of its colorful characters, timeless message, whimsical wonder, and important life lessons. It even has a bit of edginess to it, like the nightmarish scene where boys transform into donkeys.
