Best Animated Movies for Kids
Our favorite award-winning animated flicks of all time, including Pixar, Disney movies and a few surprises
“Wreck-It Ralph” is a love letter to gamers of every age, whether their console of choice is an old-school Atari or an X-Box. The film follows the titular character, a villain in a vintage arcade game along the lines of “Donkey Kong,” who aspires to be the hero. In his quest, he travels through various games, new and old. While parents who grew up on Pac Man and Super Mario Brothers will definitely be hit with a wave of nostalgia, the film also stands on its own with a clever script, empathetic characters and an ending full of emotional pay-off. “Wreck-It-Ralph” lost out to “Brave” at the Golden Globes, but is a strong contender for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.
