There’s a lot of kid-friendly animated flicks and movies to get excited about in 2022, including two new Pixar films – one involving red pandas – and a tonne of superhero-adjacent animations for all the family. You’ve seen Superman and Man of Steel, right? Well, get ready for the mutt of steel in DC League of Super Pets. That loveable superbad, Gru, returns too, in another Minions adventure.
And it’s not all superpowered pooches and yellow mischief-makers. Disney has one or two treats up its sleeves, including the horizon-crossing spectacle of Strange World, while Netflix’s Jacob and the Sea Beast continues the exploration theme with an ocean-spanning animated epic. Here’s what to look out for at your local cinema and on streaming in the 12 months ahead.
