From pioneers such as Winsor McCay and Walt Disney through to trailblazing films such as The Nightmare Before Christmas and Monsters, Inc., animation captures the imagination of moviegoers and critics, children and adults alike.

From Disney classics such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to Nick Park's The Wrong Trousers and pioneering films in the field of computer-generated animation, such as Toy Story, Shrek and Finding Nemo, Animated Filmslooks at the history of animation through close analysis of the genre's key films in categories such as The Disney Effect, Stop Motion Miracles, Britoons, Japanimation and Digital Toons. It is a fascinating insight into one of cinema's most captivating wonders.
