1.Grave of the Fireflies’ (1988)

IMDb Rating: 8.5/10

Grave of the Fireflies is another film that proves animation isn’t just for kids. Its heavy themes and tale of survival during the final months of World War II in Japan are heartbreaking. Set in Kobe, Japan, the story follows two siblings, Seita and Setsuko, as they desperately try to survive the end of the war.

Filled with the atrocities of war and personal tragedies Grave of the Fireflies is an eye-opening tale of love, loss, and perseverance. It does not shy away from the effects of war and does nothing to glamorize it, instead focusing on the repercussions of such large-scale attacks between groups of humans and society’s failure to protect its own people in such tragedy.

IMDb Rating: 8.5/10

Disney’s The Lion King is one of the best animated movies of all time. Based on Shakespeare‘s Hamlet, The Lion King follows young cub, Simba, who just can’t wait to be a great King like his father, Mufasa, but his evil uncle, Scar, has ambitions of his own for the coveted throne and will do anything to take it.

Filled with a colorful cast of iconic characters, a memorable Disney soundtrack and musical numbers, and themes taken right from Shakespeare, The Lion King is Disney at its best. Creating a beautiful world of destiny, betrayal, and responsibility, this animated masterpiece is one of the best.

5.Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ (2018)

IMDb Rating: 8.4/10

In a spectacular debut for the first on-screen appearance of Miles Morales as Spider-Man, he must make sense of his new powers in a world with too many spider-people. Warped into Miles’ universe, a cast of otherworldly versions of Spidey help the young wall-crawler come into his own while trying to find their way back home.

Into the Spider-Verse‘s animation is outstanding. It plays like a living comic book, bringing some of the most stunning animation ever seen before on the big screen. Mixed with an awesome soundtrack and plenty of lovable spider-powered characters, Into the Spider-Verse is a perfect addition to the Spider-Man universe.
