List of highest-grossing animated films

The following is a non-definitive list of the all-time highest-grossing animated films.

Highest-grossing animated films[edit]

2012 is the most represented year on the list, with six films. Eighty percent of the films in the top 50 were released after 2000. Many films that were released during the 20th century such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) do not appear on this list because ticket-price inflation, population size and ticket purchasing trends are not considered. In 2009, 3D technology in films was on the rise, leading to inflated ticket prices worldwide.[citation needed] Nine of the movies on this list also appear on the worldwide highest-grossing films of all time. Figures are given in United States dollars (USD).

  film currently playing Background shading indicates films playing in the week commencing 11 April 2014 in theaters around the world.
