Letterboxd 100: Animation

100 highest-rated feature-length animated films on Letterboxd.

Minimum 1,000 ratings. Updated on January 1, 2022.

Here's a database of my other lists on Letterboxd.

Sequels to shows or anime series—Japanese, American or from elsewhere—that need greater context before watching are not included. 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.
