Now that the nights are drawing in, and with half term around the corner, movie nights can be a great way to spend some quality time with your family and enjoy the warm indoors. To celebrate their new collection of Animated movies, Sky Cinema would like to hear about your family’s favourite animation films, both new and old.
Here’s what Sky Cinema has to say: “This October, Sky Cinema has put together our biggest ever collection of animated movies to brighten up your Autumn. The collection includes a wide range of animated movies, from the latest hits such as Sing and Kubo and the Two Strings to Disney-Pixar movies like The Incredibles or the Ice Age movies. All available to watch whenever you want on demand.”
Has a recent release, such as Secret Life of Pets or Trolls, become a firm favourite? Or, do you love the nostalgia of passing on a classic like Fantasia? Whether your family prefer the new ones or the classics, or both, Sky Cinema would like to hear about your favourite animation films - and why they manage to make it onto the list.
All who post below about their family’s favourite animation films will be entered into a prize draw where one MNer will win a £300 John Lewis voucher.
Like another poster, anything Studio Gibli in this house - Princess Kaguya for sheer beauty, or Ponyo/Totoro for utter joy and that sense of childhood magic. My two are 13 and 11 and still go back to Ponyo and Totoro regularly, as well as watching modern animations - we love Moana, and have Kubo to watch over the weekend!
My earliest memory was watching a Disney movie with my parents (and longing to be a Mouseketeer despite living thousands of miles from California!). Back then my favourite was The Fox and the Hound and I painted posters for my Dad's workplace Christmas party (at the fire station where Santa arrived on one of the fire engines).
My daughter is 7 and also loves Disney. One of her favourite films is Hocus Pocus (apt for this time of year) with Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy as the Sanderson Sisters.
So, I'll put a spell on you...and you'll pick me

And that's because you cannot miss
We've put a spell on you and the vouchers ours!!!!
