5 Animated Movies To Look Out For in 2021

  1. Arlo the Alligator Boy

A Netflix film about a boy who is half-human and half-alligator going on an adventure to find his long lost dad in New York City. It will be a 2D-animated musical. 

  1. Luca 

The past few Pixar movies haven’t been my favorites. But this one about a little boy and his new friend might be the one that finally breaks the mold. The few stills available show an adorable animation style and is directed by the same person who did the short La Luna.  

The wiki says the film will also pay homage to Porco Rosso. And I’m interested in seeing how they do that. The film is slated to be released on June 18.

  1. My Father’s Dragon

Another Cartoon Saloon film? Count me in. This movie focuses on young Elmer Elevator as he searches for a dragon. The film will be released on Netflix.

  1. Raya and the Last Dragon

This Disney film about a young warrior named Raya who goes on a journey to find the last dragon to protect her people has a promising premise and adds some nice diversity to the Disney animated canon. I hope it’s worth the extra $30 I’ll have to pay to watch it on Disney+.

The film will be released on March 5 in both theaters and on Disney+ (with premiere access.)

  1. Wendell and Wild

A stop-motion dark-fantasy/horror film directed by Henry Selick with Jordan Peele as one of the scriptwriters? Yes, please.  

A release date hasn’t been set yet, but if I had to make a guess, it’ll probably be around Halloween. The film will be released on Netflix
