Best-Reviewed Animated Movies 2019

If you thought Avengers: Endgame might buckle under the pressure of 11 years of fan expectation, try the 25 that Toy Story 4 had to uphold. But no amount of cultural weight (or snakes in boot) seems capable of stopping Woody and his friends, and Pixar gave generations of animation fans exactly what they didn’t know they needed the entire time. And indeed if you are a fan of this medium, 2019 had so much to offer: Your LEGO Movies and How to Train Your Dragons are only just the beginning of the year’s rich animated bounty.
