10 Best Animated Movies on Netflix for April 2020

1. A Silent Voice

This movie was by far one of my favorite films from a couple of years ago. This anime, also based on a manga will have you crying, laughing and cheering on for many of the characters. I was shocked to see this movie not nominated for an Academy Award. The story focuses on a teenager named Shoya Ishida, a former class bully who reaches out to his classmates from elementary school. One of the characters he reaches out to is a girl he tormented for being deaf.

If you enjoy anime, drama and tearjerkers this movie is for you.

7. Mary and the Witch’s Flower

This movie is no Hocus Pocus, but it will still want you to believe in Magic.  A girl named Mary finds a magical flower that transports her to a new world filled with witches, warlocks and wonders. She must go on a journey to save the people she cares about and the people who believe in her.

8. Space Jam

Come on and slam, and welcome to the Jam! If you grew up in the 90’s then this movie is for you! This live-action animated movie starring Michael Jordan ( The Basketball Player) is quite a nostalgia trip. With Bugs Bunny and the looney Tune gang, you will want to reminisce about watching Saturday morning cartoons.

10. The Willoughbys

I have yet to see this movie, but I have heard stellar reviews. Four siblings with horribly selfish parents hatch a plan to get rid of them for good and form a perfectly imperfect family of their own. With an A list voice cast, I’m hoping this movie exceeds expectations.
