If you're a fan of animated films (or suffer from animation addiction like we do), then you're in luck because we've compiled a list of the top animated films that we are most excited for in 2023. From heartwarming stories to action-packed adventures, these films are sure to be hits with audiences of all ages. Without further ado, let's dive into our list of the most anticipated animated films of 2023.
2022 saw a major push for movies to return to the big screen after the last two years of streaming services. A year that also saw a plethora of great animated films (Turning red, puss in boots) to match, but only one can be crowned as our 2022 ANIMATED MOVIE OF THE YEAR! Also, we should note that we are excluding anime movies from this list as that will in be in it's own category.
Dear IGN, I'm writing this letter because, despite our bad times and Good times, I must break up with you. How are you doing, 'Di Blog' fans? When we were in the middle of creating another animated project, we came across IGN's new top 25 countdown, which was, this time, based on the 25 best anime series of all time. Now, I don't usually involve myself in these countdowns from these Publishers because opinions are opinions, but something called to me this time, saying there's something I need to check on the list. And there it was, IGN had Dead Note at number 18th.
The first game I ever played was a little Sci-fi title on the old Atari called Astroids (Giving away my age here), but the last game I played recently, arguably this year's game of the year, was Elden Ring. This gaming journey has been incredible, far beyond my wildest imagination. Yet....there was still room for me to be blown away. I for one never believed I would ever see a large-scale, Jamaican-developed game about Jamaica, ever (AND I MEAN EVER!) in my lifetime. In Step Willow Tree Studios and their very ambitious indie title, Street Boy.
All dads are fathers...but not all fathers are dads! My grandfather often said that line to me when I was younger, and I never quite understood what he meant until my own son was born recently. Father's day is here, and honestly speaking, the day had always felt lost in the shadows of the juggernaut Mother's Day. It is like comparing Christmas with Kwanzaa, both equally important, but only one people truly care about. Well, I say...SCREW THAT! Dads, I am here to help raise Father's day profile the only way I know how...by creating a hot office debate amongst us here in the studio on the greatest cartoon dads in history. Here's what we came up with:
Before we get started, let's address the elephant in the room. If you have been a follower of this blog for over a year, you should notice that almost half of this list was apart of our 2020 most anticipated. Thanks to the effects of that pesky COVID-19 many of the films that were slated for 2020 got bumped into 2021. And with the global pandemic still pending here's hoping everything listed here will see the light of day this year.
