I wish I had already seen Wolfwalkers and Croods, but I had to make a guess here that I would find Wolfwalkers the best of the year based on the buzz. I loved Soul, but I can't totally look past its story problems, so I kept it at number 2. With 3, I went with Lupin III: The First, a very fun film with accomplished animation.

Of the others, I have only seen Onward and Farmageddon so far. Onward was a bit "meh" for me, and I didn't think the ending was really handled well when held up to the light. Farmageddon felt too derivative, even if it was obviously filled with lots of intentional sci-fi references; it was just a big step down from the first Shaun the Sheep movie, to me.

And, while I haven't' yet viewed Scoob! or Trolls World Tour yet, I can't imagine either cracking the top 3, even if they're fun to watch.

Yep, really enjoyed Lupin with the whole fam. Plenty o' fun, and well crafted. They really found a "look" that worked well for the characters and their world, and then they proceeded to nail it with fine cartoony animation. The solid story suited a theatrical feature, with a globetrotting adventure involving Lupin's grandfather and Nazis, plus fantasy elements not normally found in a Lupin III story. Great stuff.

Oh, I guess I also saw The Willoughbys last year. I liked it, but didn't love it as much as other films. Just okay.

1. Soul
2. Wolfwalkers
3. Onward
