This list of animated feature-length films
compiles animated feature films from around the world and is organized alphabetically under the year of release (the year the completed film was first released to the public). Theatrical releases as well as made-for-TV and direct-to-video movies are included.
In order to qualify for this list, films must be "over 40 minutes long and have animation in at least 75% of their running time, or have at least 40 minutes of animation in total." This list chooses to use the AFI, AMPAS and BFI definitions of a feature film. The Academy Award for Best Animated Feature requires that a film be at least 70 minutes long; however, this definition is historically inconsistent (for example, many films which are considered to be part of the Disney features canon are less than 70 minutes long, with the shortest length belonging to Saludos Amigos
at 43 minutes). For marionette films like Team America: World Police
, or films featuring non-animated puppets, see Films featuring puppetry.
