The 15 Most Beautiful Animated Movies Ever

(Welcome to Let’s Get Animated!, a column that spotlights the best of film animation. In this edition: the most beautiful animated movies.)

Over the weekend, one of the most imaginative and visually striking animated movies ever made hit theaters. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is being hailed as a groundbreaking achievement, and a testament to the creative heights that animation can reach. But it’s not the first animated movie to push the boundaries of the medium.

Animation so often gets dismissed a “children’s genre” that it’s often overlooked how damn beautiful these movies can get. Cinema is first and foremost a visual medium, and no other medium can test the limits of the imagination and realize the potential of filmmaking like animation. So in honor of the release of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, here are the 15 most beautiful animated films ever.

LEGO Disney Castle

If you’re a fan of LEGO and Disney, then you’ll probably want to start saving your money for a massive set that will bring the magic of Walt Disney World to your collectible shelf.

LEGO has just announced the arrival of a new official set that recreates Cinderella‘s iconic castle out of 4,080 LEGO pieces. If you can’t think in your head what Cinderella’s castle looks like, it’s the one that you can see from pretty much anywhere in Walt Disney World, but not the one that you see in the Disney logo that plays before movies. What’s cool is that even though this is Cinderella’s castle, it’s chock full of Disney easter eggs.

Check out the LEGO Disney castle after the jump. Read More »
