Gizmodo Movie Night: 15 Animated Movies You Should Watch Again

It's almost the weekend, and that means you should book in another Gizmodo movie night. This week it's time to reminisce with movies you've probably seen a hundred times before. Australian streaming services rarely have the latest movies, but they do have decent back catalogues — here are some of the best animated movies that you've already watched but should again.

We’ve re-jigged our existing Netflix Movie Night series, and brought in Australia’s other popular subscription video on demand services — Presto and Stan — to give you a broader selection of movies and TV shows to enjoy. On all three services, you can watch from your tablet or smartphone, on your PC or laptop, through your Smart TV, or through a media streaming dongle like the Google Chromecast, although specifics can vary.

Presto costs $10 to $15 a month depending which package you choose. Stan is a flat $10 per month, and Netflix can cost from $9 to $15 per month.
