The Best of 2019: And Then It Was Over

With awards season now in full swing, it’s time once again for our site’s annual look back at the year that was, with our staff’s favorites from what the world of entertainment had to offer, along with your picks for what you chose as the best animated movies of 2019 from our Reader’s Choice poll.

Spies in Disguise

While a few details may ruffle your feathers, Spies in Disguise checks the necessary boxes to be an enjoyable enough film.

Finding Santa: A Christmas Adventure

Even with an interesting animation style, Finding Santa doesn’t quite earn itself a place on top of Santa’s nice list.

Playmobil: The Movie

Playmobil: The Movie is not The Lego Movie. Fortunately, the filmmakers know this too and give viewers something different to play with.

Frozen II

While actually topping a film like Frozen would be as impossible as finding two identical snowflakes, Frozen II is no more than a lukewarm attempt.

Hazbin Hotel

Be warned: Hazbin Hotel is not a family-friendly show. Yet the independently produced pilot features high quality animation, wonderful characters, and catchy show-tunes that is worth checking in to.

The Swan Princess Lasts Far Longer Than Forever with Director Richard Rich

Director Richard Rich discussesThe Swan Princess, in which he talks about the film’s 25th anniversary Blu-ray release, the movie’s legacy, and more.


The narrative is very basic, almost to the point of being detrimental. Nevertheless, Abominable is a charming enough film with simple, yet beautiful animation, likable characters, and nice music.
