Check Out This List of Best Animated Movie Sequels Ever Made

We all love watching animated movies, and Hollywood keeps setting the bar higher every time an animation flick hits the big screen. However, let’s accept it – animated movies don’t always work well when it comes to sequels. Despite that, there are exceptions that have not only made more money than the first installment, but also garnered critical appreciation from critics and fans alike. Without any further ado, let’s check out the twenty best animated sequels ever made.


Cloudy with A Chance of Meatballs 2

When a sequel to Cloudy with A Chance of Meatballs was announced and later made, everyone was expecting a great sequel. Although it didn’t turn out to be that good, the movie satisfied the audiences, thanks to its colorful setting.



Winnie The Pooh

Quite the same way fans figured it out after way too long that Winnie the Pooh is actually a female, they also had no idea that there was an original Winnie The Pooh movie that came out in 1977, which was titled The Adventures of Winnie The Pooh.



Ice Story 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

Ice Story 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs was everything that Toy Story 3 couldn’t turn out to be. The action scenes were phenomenal and the use of 3D was on point as well, making it a really entertaining “threequel”.



How to Train Your Dragon 2

When moviemakers take their time in making a sequel without rushing through with it, it often turns out to be good. How to Train Your Dragon 2 is a classic example of that. The movie brings back the same old feelings of love, fears, longing, and an everlasting presence.



The Rescuers Down Under

This 90s classic was a great sequel to its predecessor. And while it may not be our favorite Disney movie, it certainly was a well-made film that was appreciated by critics and audiences alike. The movie specifically removed all those lame songs the original one had, and delivered a significant improvement over the first one.
