Top 5 Animated Christmas Movies

I'm a Christmas fanatic, my decorations go up in mid-November and if I ever make it to December 1st before eating a mince pie it’ll be a new record. I love everything about the festive season. I love cosy fires, hot chocolate and most importantly Christmas movies! Some of my all-time favourites feature brilliant voiceover performances. So in case you are stuck for what to watch over the next month here are my top five animated Christmas movies:

Disney’s A Christmas Carol – I’m a huge fan of Dickens’s classic tale and this adaptation is the best I’ve seen! Dark, wonderfully animated and faithful to the novel. It’s worth watching for Jim Carrey’s performances (he plays 8 characters!) alone!

How The Grinch Stole Christmas – This TV Movie from 1966, featuring the Grammy award winning Boris Karloff as the Grinch, will always have a place in my heart. Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas – Well it wouldn’t be Christmas without a little bit of festive Disney magic!

Polar Express – This visually stunning film can be summed up in one word…Iconic The Snowman – Christmas Eve wouldn’t be quite the same without an annual viewing of this heart-warming film in my family. From December 1st the music plays on a loop in my brain!
