Netflix, the library for all sort of films, also has a particular liking towards animation. One reason for that could be how popular animation films are in general. They are loved by people of all ages and backgrounds. Why, you might ask. Well, apart from being more flexible than the live action films, animation deep down always talks about important values – a simple, motivational plot line that inspires us to look at life more positively. Leading away with the best films from the industry are studios like Disney and Pixar. With all that said, here’s the list of really good animation movies on Netflix that are available to stream right now:
20. The Prince of Egypt (1998)
‘Prince of Egypt’ is the 2D adaptation of the story that follows Moses as he leads the people of Egypt to the promised land. The film is a visual treat, especially if you are interested in the beginnings of Christianity and want to watch the portrayal of ‘God’ as he confronts Moses by bestowing upon him a huge responsibility and spiritual abilities. The film was scored by Hanz Zimmer with unforgettable tracks like ‘The plagues’ haunting us even years after we watch the film. Prince of Egypt is one from the many remarkable films DreamWorks have produced over the years. The storyline did not have goofy characters that are considered mandatory for animation, and it shattered the conventional belief that animation is only for children.

19. Chicken Run (2000)
This stop-motion animation film, that features voices of the industry leads like Mel Gibson, tells the story of a crazy chicken who helps its group of ‘going to be soup soon’ friends out of the poultry farm. The film has a unique take on its humor flavored with slapstick sequences and is sure to get you excited with over the top expressions and highly animated movements. Deriving most of its amusement from the semi-human characteristics of the chicken, the film will have you rooting for a highly motivated avian herd who tries all possible tactics as part of their ‘escape plan’.
