Building on developments in the 1990s, numerous studios started using computer-generated imagery to create full length animated feature films after the success of films like Toy Story, Antz, Toy Story 2 and A Bug's Life.

In addition, this decade saw an increase in popularity of the anime and stop motion genres with blockbusters such as Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, Chicken Run and Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, also Spirited Away and Wallace & Gromit became the first, and only, anime and stop motion films to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature and Up became the second animated film to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.
