When we think animated movies, we usually think Disney. However, there have been many animated movie series that were not made by Walt Disney Pictures and still emerged successful. Disney might still be the reigning king of animation but these 10 movie franchises are giving it a run for its money:
Created by DreamWorks Animation, this movie series has four films already with one in the making. Then came the spin-off series with Puss in Boots, whose sequel is also expected.
How to Train Your Dragon
Another DreamWorks Animation project, this film has two successful movies with a third one all set to release in March this year.
Kung Fu Panda
One of DreamWorks Animation’s most successful animated franchises till date, this series already has three movies with three more expected to release in the future.
After three successful films and a spin-off series with Penguins of Madagascar, the fourth installment in the franchise by DreamWorks Animation is in the works.
Produced by Blue Sky Studios, a division of 20th Century Fox, this highly successful franchise has five movies with the possibility of one more to come.
This monster movie by Sony Pictures Animation was so highly appreciated that two more sequels followed right after.
The Secret Life of Pets
Even though only one film has released so far, the success of the film by Illumination Entertainment has given birth to a sequel, ready to release this year.
