Animations Of 2020 was literally a bad year. The widespread outbreak of the coronavirus has greatly affected human life in many ways and created unpleasant times for many of the inhabitants of this planet.

On the other hand, the situation caused by the Corona pandemic has deeply affected the film and cinema industry, and many cinematic works have either stopped production or lost their chance to be released in cinemas. Fortunately, there were still plenty of good animated films to help make the leisure time of quarantined families a little more enjoyable.

During this time, animation companies released several works to the audience. For example, Pixar became popular with two compelling animated films, DreamWorks released two hits, and Netflix helped distribute valuable works from other countries, such as Ireland. Japan and Britain came to the aid of the animation industry. Also, the animation styles of 2020 were attractive and sometimes showed the works in a new format that the filmmakers less noticed.

This family musical film is about a young girl named Phi Phi who decides to travel to the moon in any way possible and meet the mythical goddess to solve her problem. Of course, in this way, he faces many ups and downs that are spectacular in their own way.

Snow White Princess in Red Shoes and Seven Dwarfs animation

16- Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs animation

Animation of red shoes and seven dwarfs

Few people have not heard the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, so that you might be a little curious about this movie. Because this time, the snow-white of our story is not a charming princess but a kind girl with a normal appearance who becomes a beautiful princess just by wearing a pair of magical red shoes.

On the other side of the story, we are confronted with seven brave princes who have been captured by the curse of a witch and turned into dwarfs. They are impatiently looking for a princess who cancels their spell, and of course, alongside them, we are with the evil Snow White stepmother, who spares no effort to return her precious shoes.

Willows want to live as orphans!

Of course, things did not go according to plan, and fate puts them in a completely different situation, which bears no resemblance to the sweet dream they had dreamed. The film is based on Lewis Lowry’s novel and stars Maya Rudolph and Ricky Jervis as voice actors.

Jiang Xia animation

On this account, Eastern anime will be more popular among Western audiences in the coming years.

13. A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon

Sheep Animation: Farmagdon

  • Genre: Comedy, Adventure
  • Director: Will Beecher, Richard Plan
  • Studio product: Aardman Animations
  • Release Date: February 14, 2020
  • Playing time: 87 minutes
  • Shaun the Sheep Movie  average rating on  IMDB:  6/8

Wallace and Gromit may be the jewels of Aardman Animations, but Shaun the Sheep is undoubtedly the studio’s secret weapon.

 

The British TV series debuted in cinemas in 2015 and was well received by critics and the box office. However, the film’s worldwide success and box office sales were enough to guarantee the production of subsequent sequels.

The atmosphere of this film may remind you of silent works. In fact, the characters do not have much dialogue. Still, the body language and occasional gestures advance the film, which is a sign of the extraordinary talent of the animators of the stop motion section of this studio. What they are doing is creating admirable versions of Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, and Harold Lloyd.

Grizzly bear, panda and polar bear in animation of three naive bears or hazelnut bears

12- We Bare Bears: The Movie animation

Our animation Hazelnut Bears (Three naive bears)

  • Genre: Adventure, Comedy
  • Director : Daniel Chong
  • Studio product: Cartoon Network Studios
  • Release Date: June 30, 2020
  • Playing time: 70 minutes
  • Average rating of We Bare Bears: The Movie on  IMDB:   6/9

Three brother bears (grizzly bear, panda, and polar bear) cause an accidental catastrophe and destroy the city of San Francisco so that an angry group starts working and tries to expel them from their community.

The three bears travel to Canada to escape them, but apparently, they will not find peace there either. Because this time, they encounter a vicious wildlife agent.

The film’s tone is humorous and interesting, and although its scenes are repeated in many other cartoons, it is lovely. All in all, we are dealing with a not-so-long film that is worth watching once.

The character of Lupine in the movie Lupine

11- Animation Lupine III: The First

Lupine Animation 3

  • Genre: Action, Adventure
  • Director: Takashi Yamazaki
  • Studio product: TMS Entertainment, Marza Animation Planet
  • Release date: November 6, 2019, in Japan and other parts of the world in 2020
  • Playing time: 93 minutes
  • Average rating of Lupine III: The First on  IMDB:   6/9

The character of Lupin III has been around since the late 1960s and has appeared in various works, including a series of popular manga and several plays and animations, including Kagliostro Castle, directed and written by Hayao Miyazaki. The film was also Miyazaki’s first directing experience.

But the latest film starring Lupine has elevated the character of this gentleman thief in the world of 3D animation. This time, Lupine seeks to unravel the mystery of Indiana Jones before it falls into the hands of the Nazis. The style of the film is still exaggerated, although the use of modern animation style has made the action sequences confusing, engaging, and spectacular.

Hayao Miyazaki’s first directing experience came with making Kagliostro Castle.

Of course, if we rely only on this dimension of the story, maybe Lupine is not such an interesting film. However, we should not ignore the fascinating storyline of this animation, which is full of emotional wounds and shadows of moral lights that have involved each character. What does the world really mean if the character of the thief and thief is the most honorable and prestigious in this film?

Undoubtedly, with this attractive perspective, Lupine can both satisfy his old audience and attract new ones.

Cavemen in the Cavemen animation in the new age

10- Croods animation: A New Age The Croods

New Age Cavemen Animation

The Cavemen sequel continues the same storyline as before. Families of cavemen try to lead a normal life in an environment full of small and big dangers. So by now, you know what you’re going to face in this new sequel.

This animated film is clearly suitable for children, but it does not disappoint adults due to its many features. On the way to their uncertain future, our caveman family encounters another caveman family who has adopted a different way of life.

This time, it seems that the humor used in this film has become a bit more exaggerated, and this issue has attracted more children to the film and made adults laugh more than before.

Candice in the animated film Farb and Phoenix

9- Phineas and Ferb animation The Movie: Candace Against the Universe

Phoenix and Farb animation: Candice against the galaxy

  • Genre: Family, Adventure, Action
  • Director: Bob Bowen
  • Studio product: Disney Television Animation
  • Release Date: August 27, 2020
  • Playing time: 85 minutes
  • Average Phineas and Ferb The Movie  scores on  IMDB:  7/2

Candice can no longer tolerate her brothers’ behavior, and their mother can no longer tolerate another bizarre technology invented by Phineas and Farb. When Candace cries out in despair over the earth and time, a spaceship appears in the sky above her, something that Candice, as her older sister, has long been waiting for to happen.

However, this is not what Candice wants. So once again, Phoenix and Farb take part in a rescue mission to save their sister from a group of aliens. Candice vs. the World remains true to the storyline of the original series, entertaining the viewer with plenty of visual jokes.

Ian, Barley, Dragon and others in the animation forward

8- Onward animation

Animation forward

  • Genre: Adventure, Comedy
  • Director: Dan Scanlon
  • Studio product: Walt Disney Pictures, Pixar Animation Studios
  • Screen Date: March 6, 2020
  • Playing time: 102 minutes
  • Average Onward  Scores on  IMDB:  4.7

In a world where traces of magic and fantasy are still visible, the two brothers re-establish their relationship based on love and mutual understanding. At the same time, they are struggling to bring their dead father back to the land of the living. Of course, this journey is not usually straightforward, and along the way, they will face all kinds of challenges, including facing a dragon.

Given the film’s reflection, the director seems to have created a fantasy world and portrayed family love for each other. The film may be weak compared to Pixar Studios’ classics, but it still uses formulas. Finally, the viewer witnesses a hilarious, dazzling, and, of course, pleasant adventure, a story that he likes to accompany his characters to the end.

Scorpio character in the animated film Mortal Kombat: Scorpio revenge

7- Mortal Kombat Legends animation: Scorpion’s Revenge

Mortal Kombat Animation: Scorpion Revenge

This animation is a kind of retelling of the same story adapted in 1995, but there is a key difference. Here everything is focused on the rage of a warrior with a skull-like face, the character of a Scorpio.

Hanzo Hasashi loses his tribe, family, and even his life during the attack of rival ninjas. But suddenly, he gets a chance and is allowed to participate in a multi-dimensional tournament where winning means saving his loved ones. Meanwhile, other fighters in this competition are pursuing a different goal and seeking to save the Earth.

The world of Mortal Kombat is all about the chance of life and death, and this animation knows exactly how to keep its audience happy. Of course, streams of blood flow along this path, but the important thing is that the pleasure of sensory revenge is delightful.

Maria and the other characters in the movie Wolf House

6- The Wolf House animation

Wolf House Animation

  • Genre: Drama, Horror
  • Director : Cristobal Leon, Joaquin Koshia
  • Studio product : Diluvio, Globo Rojo Films
  • Release date: February 22, 2018, at the Berlin International Film Festival
  • Playing time: 75 minutes
  • The Wolf House’s  average rating  on  IMDB:  6/7

This Chilean film is somewhat tragic and disturbing due to its bizarre animated style. The film’s story is also inspired by a true story and refers to Colonia Dignidad. A German sect in southern Chile was founded by Nazi German immigrants and was known for torturing and killing dissidents during the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet.

The style used in making this animation is tragic and somewhat annoying.

But the story of this film is about the dangerous journey of Maria, a young woman who encounters a wolf on her journey and takes refuge in a small house in the middle of the forest. The house is deserted and uninhabited, although Maria finds two small pigs in the bathroom. He names them Pedro and Anna and promises them love and care. But his feelings are more complex than he imagines, and this is what brings us to one of the darkest animated films in history.

Negative character in the animation Cobbler Girl and Black Cat

5- Miraculous World: New York animation

Amazing World Animation: New York

  • Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Romance
  • Director: Thomas Astro
  • Studio product: SAMG Animation, Method Animation, Zagtoon
  • Release Date: September 25, 2020
  • Playing time: 52 minutes
  • Average rating of Miraculous World: New York on  IMDB:   7.7

Engaging in a school trip to New York City gives Marinette a chance to take a break and get out of the superhero mood for a while. He can spend some time in this city away from evil people and spend time with his classmates like a normal teenager.

But Hawk Moth’s activities cause the ladybug and the black cat to engage in destructive activities even on the other side of the Atlantic. They soon unite with American heroes to fight a common enemy.

Midoria Izoko in My Hero Academy Animation

4- My Hero Academia animation: Heroes Rising

My Hero Academy Animation: The Rise of Heroes

  • Genre: Action, Science Fiction
  • Director : Kenji Nagasaki
  • Studio Product: Bones
  • Release Date: February 26, 2020, in North America
  • Playing time: 104 minutes
  • Average rating of  My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising on  IMDB:   7/9

Since its first release in 2016, My Hero Academy Animation (My Hero School) has been recognized as one of its generation’s best action animation works.

This collection looks at a world that is the birthplace and, of course, the testing ground for people with special and unique abilities. Meanwhile, the story focuses on Midori Izoko, a young boy with a big dream who one day wants to become a great hero although he has no special abilities. In this way, he uses the training of world number one champion Almit.

The story of the My Hero Academy series deals with the life of Midori and the challenges it faces. But the rise of the heroes occurs when Midori and her classmates are in charge of protecting the inhabitants of the small islands. But when a group of evil characters invades the island, they are forced to save the island and its inhabitants alone and without the help of their trainers—a film with attractive visual effects that offers an exciting show to the audience.

Superman and Constantine in the battle of the apocalypse

3- Justice League Dark animation: Apokolips War

Dark Justice League animation: The Battle of the Apocalypse

  • Genre: Action, Superhero
  • Director: Matt Peters, Christina Sota
  • Studio product: Warner Bros., Animation DC Entertainment
  • Release date: May 5, 2020
  • Playing time: 90 minutes
  • Average Justice League Dark: Apokolips War  scores on  IMDB:  7/8

While many Marvel moviegoers were still waiting for the next episodes of their superheroes’ lives, DC Comics returned to the glamorous world of cinema with a new film.

The film was one of the top five and perhaps by far the best. Four other films, including Batman: Death in the Family ( Batman:  Death in the Family ), Death Stroke: Knights and Dragons ( Deathstroke:  Knights & Dragons ), Superman: Man of Tomorrow ( Superman:  Man of Tomorrow ), and Superman: Boy Red ( Superman:  Red Son ).

The success of this film is a golden opportunity for Warner Bros. to retell old stories.

The film’s story deals with the events after the victory of Dark Side and the defeat of Superman and the Justice League when a glimmer of hope appears in the presence of John Constantine (Matt Ryan) and his group of magical villains.

While Clark Kent is fighting for honor, Constantine is only looking for victory. The film should be considered a remake of a popular work, another opportunity for Warner Bros. to revive old stories in a new style and narrative.

Rubin Hunter Girl in Wolf Walkers2- Wolfwalkers animation

Wolf Walkers animation

  • Genre: Family, Fantasy, Adventure
  • Director: Tom Moore, Ross Stewart
  • Studio product: Cartoon Saloon Mélusine
  • Release Date: December 2, 2020
  • Playing time: 103 minutes
  • Average Wolfwalkers  scores on  IMDB:  1.8

Cartoon Saloon’s recent productions are truly admirable, especially if we look at their recent works such as The Secret of Kells, Song of the Sea, and The Breadwinner. Three stunning representations of form that showcase fascinating characterization.

The studio’s latest release in 2020 was no exception, a film that explores folklore and local mythology from a different angle. The story takes place during the British invasion of Ireland in 1649 when a young girl tries to use her skills to help her father try to trap a wild wolf.

But nothing is as it seems, and the story, in a fascinating twist, changes the place of the hunter and the hunter. Apparently, we are not going to face a straightforward story because the characters are constantly changing formats and appearing in new roles, and this is the main attraction of this cartoon.

The animation style used in this film is also spectacular, the lines are sometimes soft and smooth, but as the events become more horrible, the lines also change and become uneven.

Joe Gardner and the Ghosts in Ghost Animation

1- Soul animation

Spirit animation

  • Genre: Adventure, Comedy
  • Director: Pete Doctor
  • Studio product: Disney, Pixar
  • Release Date: December 25, 2020
  • Playing time: 100 minutes
  • Average Soul  Scores on  IMDB:  1.8

Pixar Studios’s second successful film in 2020 was directed by the studio’s new and creative director. The story is about Joe Gardner, voiced by Jimmy Foxx. A skilled jazz musician who unfortunately has not yet achieved what he deserves.

 

But one day, the doors of success finally open for him, and he gets the opportunity to play with another group of creative musicians, including Dortia Williams, provided he arrives on time to perform.

But when he walks over the clouds with great joy, he inadvertently falls into the well, and his life ends. Now he walks the streets of New York City into the realm of our supernatural while not yet ready to cross the final gate. The story of this film is about Joe Gardner’s preoccupations that do not stop even in the underworld.

Dr. Carboldi is a director. He spent a lot of time at Pixar and directed several other works, including Monsters and Inside and Out. Ghost Animation is his fourth directing experience, which happened to be a successful experience and won him an Oscar…

Three brother bears (grizzly bear, panda, and polar bear) cause an accidental catastrophe and destroy the city of San Francisco so that an angry group starts working and tries to expel them from their community.

The three bears travel to Canada to escape them, but apparently, they will not find peace there either. Because this time, they encounter a vicious wildlife agent.

The film’s tone is humorous and interesting, and although its scenes are repeated in many other cartoons, it is lovely. All in all, we are dealing with a not-so-long film that is worth watching once.

The character of Lupine in the movie Lupine

11- Animation Lupine III: The First

Lupine Animation 3

  • Genre: Action, Adventure
  • Director: Takashi Yamazaki
  • Studio product: TMS Entertainment, Marza Animation Planet
  • Release date: November 6, 2019, in Japan and other parts of the world in 2020
  • Playing time: 93 minutes
  • Average rating of Lupine III: The First on  IMDB:   6/9

The character of Lupin III has been around since the late 1960s and has appeared in various works, including a series of popular manga and several plays and animations, including Kagliostro Castle, directed and written by Hayao Miyazaki. The film was also Miyazaki’s first directing experience.

But the latest film starring Lupine has elevated the character of this gentleman thief in the world of 3D animation. This time, Lupine seeks to unravel the mystery of Indiana Jones before it falls into the hands of the Nazis. The style of the film is still exaggerated, although the use of modern animation style has made the action sequences confusing, engaging, and spectacular.

Hayao Miyazaki’s first directing experience came with making Kagliostro Castle.

Of course, if we rely only on this dimension of the story, maybe Lupine is not such an interesting film. However, we should not ignore the fascinating storyline of this animation, which is full of emotional wounds and shadows of moral lights that have involved each character. What does the world really mean if the character of the thief and thief is the most honorable and prestigious in this film?

Undoubtedly, with this attractive perspective, Lupine can both satisfy his old audience and attract new ones.

Cavemen in the Cavemen animation in the new age

-10- Croods animation: A New Age The Croods

New Age Cavemen Animation

The Cavemen sequel continues the same storyline as before. Families of cavemen try to lead a normal life in an environment full of small and big dangers. So by now, you know what you’re going to face in this new sequel.

This animated film is clearly suitable for children, but it does not disappoint adults due to its many features. On the way to their uncertain future, our caveman family encounters another caveman family who has adopted a different way of life.

This time, it seems that the humor used in this film has become a bit more exaggerated, and this issue has attracted more children to the film and made adults laugh more than before.

Candice in the animated film Farb and Phoenix

9- Phineas and Ferb animation The Movie: Candace Against the Universe

Phoenix and Farb animation: Candice against the galaxy

  • Genre: Family, Adventure, Action
  • Director: Bob Bowen
  • Studio product: Disney Television Animation
  • Release Date: August 27, 2020
  • Playing time: 85 minutes
  • Average Phineas and Ferb The Movie  scores on  IMDB:  7/2

However, this is not what Candice wants. So once again, Phoenix and Farb take part in a rescue mission to save their sister from a group of aliens. Candice vs. the World remains true to the storyline of the original series, entertaining the viewer with plenty of visual jokes.

Ian, Barley, Dragon and others in the animation forward

8- Onward animation

Animation forward

  • Genre: Adventure, Comedy
  • Director: Dan Scanlon
  • Studio product: Walt Disney Pictures, Pixar Animation Studios
  • Screen Date: March 6, 2020
  • Playing time: 102 minutes
  • Average Onward  Scores on  IMDB:  4.7

In a world where traces of magic and fantasy are still visible, the two brothers re-establish their relationship based on love and mutual understanding. At the same time, they are struggling to bring their dead father back to the land of the living. Of course, this journey is not usually straightforward, and along the way, they will face all kinds of challenges, including facing a dragon.

Given the film’s reflection, the director seems to have created a fantasy world and portrayed family love for each other. The film may be weak compared to Pixar Studios’ classics, but it still uses formulas. Finally, the viewer witnesses a hilarious, dazzling, and, of course, pleasant adventure, a story that he likes to accompany his characters to the end.

Scorpio character in the animated film Mortal Kombat: Scorpio revenge

7- Mortal Kombat Legends animation: Scorpion’s Revenge

Mortal Kombat Animation: Scorpion Revenge

This animation is a kind of retelling of the same story adapted in 1995, but there is a key difference. Here everything is focused on the rage of a warrior with a skull-like face, the character of a Scorpio.

Hanzo Hasashi loses his tribe, family, and even his life during the attack of rival ninjas. But suddenly, he gets a chance and is allowed to participate in a multi-dimensional tournament where winning means saving his loved ones. Meanwhile, other fighters in this competition are pursuing a different goal and seeking to save the Earth.

The world of Mortal Kombat is all about the chance of life and death, and this animation knows exactly how to keep its audience happy. Of course, streams of blood flow along this path, but the important thing is that the pleasure of sensory revenge is delightful.

Maria and the other characters in the movie Wolf House

6- The Wolf House animation

Wolf House Animation

  • Genre: Drama, Horror
  • Director : Cristobal Leon, Joaquin Koshia
  • Studio product : Diluvio, Globo Rojo Films
  • Release date: February 22, 2018, at the Berlin International Film Festival
  • Playing time: 75 minutes
  • The Wolf House’s  average rating  on  IMDB:  6/7

This Chilean film is somewhat tragic and disturbing due to its bizarre animated style. The film’s story is also inspired by a true story and refers to Colonia Dignidad. A German sect in southern Chile was founded by Nazi German immigrants and was known for torturing and killing dissidents during the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet.

The style used in making this animation is tragic and somewhat annoying.

But the story of this film is about the dangerous journey of Maria, a young woman who encounters a wolf on her journey and takes refuge in a small house in the middle of the forest. The house is deserted and uninhabited, although Maria finds two small pigs in the bathroom. He names them Pedro and Anna and promises them love and care. But his feelings are more complex than he imagines, and this is what brings us to one of the darkest animated films in history.

Negative character in the animation Cobbler Girl and Black Cat

5- Miraculous World: New York animation

But Hawk Moth’s activities cause the ladybug and the black cat to engage in destructive activities even on the other side of the Atlantic. They soon unite with American heroes to fight a common enemy.

Midoria Izoko in My Hero Academy Animation

4- My Hero Academia animation: Heroes Rising

My Hero Academy Animation: The Rise of Heroes

  • Genre: Action, Science Fiction
  • Director : Kenji Nagasaki
  • Studio Product: Bones
  • Release Date: February 26, 2020, in North America
  • Playing time: 104 minutes
  • Average rating of  My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising on  IMDB:   7/9

Since its first release in 2016, My Hero Academy Animation (My Hero School) has been recognized as one of its generation’s best action animation works.

This collection looks at a world that is the birthplace and, of course, the testing ground for people with special and unique abilities. Meanwhile, the story focuses on Midori Izoko, a young boy with a big dream who one day wants to become a great hero although he has no special abilities. In this way, he uses the training of world number one champion Almit.

The story of the My Hero Academy series deals with the life of Midori and the challenges it faces. But the rise of the heroes occurs when Midori and her classmates are in charge of protecting the inhabitants of the small islands. But when a group of evil characters invades the island, they are forced to save the island and its inhabitants alone and without the help of their trainers—a film with attractive visual effects that offers an exciting show to the audience.

Superman and Constantine in the battle of the apocalypse

3- Justice League Dark animation: Apokolips War

Dark Justice League animation: The Battle of the Apocalypse

  • Genre: Action, Superhero
  • Director: Matt Peters, Christina Sota
  • Studio product: Warner Bros., Animation DC Entertainment
  • Release date: May 5, 2020
  • Playing time: 90 minutes
  • Average Justice League Dark: Apokolips War  scores on  IMDB:  7/8

While many Marvel moviegoers were still waiting for the next episodes of their superheroes’ lives, DC Comics returned to the glamorous world of cinema with a new film.

The film was one of the top five and perhaps by far the best. Four other films, including Batman: Death in the Family ( Batman:  Death in the Family ), Death Stroke: Knights and Dragons ( Deathstroke:  Knights & Dragons ), Superman: Man of Tomorrow ( Superman:  Man of Tomorrow ), and Superman: Boy Red ( Superman:  Red Son ).

The success of this film is a golden opportunity for Warner Bros. to retell old stories.

The film’s story deals with the events after the victory of Dark Side and the defeat of Superman and the Justice League when a glimmer of hope appears in the presence of John Constantine (Matt Ryan) and his group of magical villains.

While Clark Kent is fighting for honor, Constantine is only looking for victory. The film should be considered a remake of a popular work, another opportunity for Warner Bros. to revive old stories in a new style and narrative.

Rubin Hunter Girl in Wolf Walkers2- Wolfwalkers animation

Wolf Walkers animation

  • Genre: Family, Fantasy, Adventure
  • Director: Tom Moore, Ross Stewart
  • Studio product: Cartoon Saloon Mélusine
  • Release Date: December 2, 2020
  • Playing time: 103 minutes
  • Average Wolfwalkers  scores on  IMDB:  1.8

Cartoon Saloon’s recent productions are truly admirable, especially if we look at their recent works such as The Secret of Kells, Song of the Sea, and The Breadwinner. Three stunning representations of form that showcase fascinating characterization.

The studio’s latest release in 2020 was no exception, a film that explores folklore and local mythology from a different angle. The story takes place during the British invasion of Ireland in 1649 when a young girl tries to use her skills to help her father try to trap a wild wolf.

But nothing is as it seems, and the story, in a fascinating twist, changes the place of the hunter and the hunter. Apparently, we are not going to face a straightforward story because the characters are constantly changing formats and appearing in new roles, and this is the main attraction of this cartoon.

The animation style used in this film is also spectacular, the lines are sometimes soft and smooth, but as the events become more horrible, the lines also change and become uneven.

Joe Gardner and the Ghosts in Ghost Animation

1- Soul animation

Spirit animation

  • Genre: Adventure, Comedy
  • Director: Pete Doctor
  • Studio product: Disney, Pixar
  • Release Date: December 25, 2020
  • Playing time: 100 minutes
  • Average Soul  Scores on  IMDB:  1.8

Pixar Studios’s second successful film in 2020 was directed by the studio’s new and creative director. The story is about Joe Gardner, voiced by Jimmy Foxx. A skilled jazz musician who unfortunately has not yet achieved what he deserves.

 

But one day, the doors of success finally open for him, and he gets the opportunity to play with another group of creative musicians, including Dortia Williams, provided he arrives on time to perform.

But when he walks over the clouds with great joy, he inadvertently falls into the well, and his life ends. Now he walks the streets of New York City into the realm of our supernatural while not yet ready to cross the final gate. The story of this film is about Joe Gardner’s preoccupations that do not stop even in the underworld.

Dr. Carboldi is a director. He spent a lot of time at Pixar and directed several other works, including Monsters and Inside and Out. Ghost Animation is his fourth directing experience, which happened to be a successful experience and won him an Oscar…
