Matt Eyre, Director at Roar Motion, commented:

“The summer school holidays are just around the corner, and with it comes the challenge of keeping your kids entertained for the duration of the break. You might plan day trips, playdates, or trips to see the family, however the weather isn’t always reliable, so sometimes you’ll need to have back-up plans for fun activities which involve staying at home.

“With this in mind, we analysed IMDB data in a bid to discover the ‘top-rated’ child-friendly animated movies for families to enjoy during the upcoming summer school holidays. As well as highlighting the ‘top-rated’ overall, we also looked at the films with a duration of 90 minutes or less, for those in more of a time-crunch.

“We collaborate with our clients to script, storyboard, design, and animate videos that sums up your service or concept in a few minutes, calling on our network of collaborators to find the perfect backing track and voiceover artist to go with our animation.
