2016 was an awesome year for animated kids movies as we got to see some amazing creations. Previously, almost all movies made for kids were silly and fun, and were specifically catered for them. However, the trend has changed in the past decade, as we are witnessing different genres being experimented on in animation quite successfully. This trend will continue this year as well, as we will get to see some unique ideas being put on the big screen. The biggest and the most unique animated kids movies coming out in 2017 have been outlined below.
