How did we choose the 100 best animated movies of all time? We went straight to the experts and asked them to tell us their personal top ten films.

“Toy Story features some of the best characters and story plotting ever. Rock solid. The Incrediblescombines the best elements of comic-book stories and creates a relatable tale where superpowers are secondary. Ratatouille is almost a magic trick: Making the audience root for and believe in a rat as a master chef is truly incredible. Spirited Away created a unique, alien world that captured the often disorienting experience of being a kid beautifully. And am I allowed to admit Despicable Me? It’s probably one of my favorites—even if I did have to watch it 400 times during production.”
