Letterboxd 100: Animation

100 highest-rated feature-length animated films on Letterboxd. Sequels to shows—Japanese, American or from elsewhere—that need greater context before watching have been removed. Those that are included can be enjoyed on a standalone basis—and I've taken the decision to remove films that only do a brief recap (such as Steven Universe: The Movie) at the beginning that may not give the quality of context necessary for enjoyment. The rationale for this decision is so that viewers can finish this list without having to see a multitude of other episodes and films. In addition, series recaps are also not included as of now. These decisions have been made to keep the list consistent and achievable. Please feel free to create your own list if you disagree.

Minimum 1,000 ratings. Updated on November 20, 2020.
