With the year now taking its course, the animated film industry has been having a blast with all kinds of stories and characters. This year surely has everything from family-oriented, all-age adventures to grown-up-themed stories. If you want to access these films from regions where they may not be available, consider using a VPN.

Here’s a roundup of twelve animated movies that have the potential to hit it big:

Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths Part One

Release Date: January 8, 2024

Warner Bros. and DC kick off the year with a bang.

It is a movie opening a three-film sequence, already setting the tone for a dramatic continuation of the rest of the year.

Orion and the Dark

Release Date: February 2, 2024

The final output of all that is the work of DreamWorks and Netflix collaboration—the literal animation of Emma Yarlett’s book under the creative vision of Charlie Kauffman. It narrates the story of a little boy, Orion, who faces his deepest fears with his weird friend, the Dark. It is about friendship and bravery but done incredibly visually appealingly.

The Tiger’s Apprentice

Another early-year release, “The Tiger’s Apprentice,” is an action-and-magical-adventure mix from Paramount Animation. It’s the story of a boy getting training from a shape-shifting tiger on how to save a mythical phoenix from evil forces, all based on a book by Laurence Yep.

Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim

Release Date: December 13, 2024

An anime prequel set within the world of “The Lord of the Rings” tells the legend of Helm Hammerhand and his fortress, Helm’s Deep. This would be a must-see for Tolkien and epic fantasy fans. 

The Witcher: Sirens of the Deep 

Release date: Late 2024 

Like in the series “The Witcher,” we are shown Geralt, who is already investigating the conflict between humans and merpeople. It includes a strong storyline and popular characters. It is addressed to an older audience and fans of the original series

2024 is becoming a promising year for animation, where fresh storytelling will be consolidated with state-of-the-art techniques in making films set to captivate a broad audience. This year has everything to capture the heart: heartwarming family movies and immersing into the most fantastical worlds.
