Deretan Film Animasi Terbaik untuk Menemani Akhir Pekanmu

A list of the best animated films to accompany your weekend

Watching films is a favorite activity that is perfect for filling the weekend. It is believed that films can refresh the mind, provide inspiration, and can even be used as therapy or what is also known as cinematherapy.

Watching films alone, you don't always have to go to the cinema. In today's extreme weather conditions, you can just watch films at home. One type of film that you can watch is animated films. There are various kinds of stories ready to provide a new atmosphere for you, ranging from Hollywood products, anime, to the creations of the nation's children.

The following are recommendations for animated films that are suitable to accompany you on the weekend:

Toy Story 4

The first recommendation goes to the film Toy Story 4. This adventure genre film, which was released in 2019, is a sequel to Toy Story, which was first released in 1995. Toy Story 4 itself won the Best Animated Feature trophy at the 2020 Oscars.

From the story, Toy Story 4 tells the new adventures of a toy character named Woody and his friends, Buzz, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, and others. In this series, Woody meets Forky, a new toy that Bonnie made while doing a craft assignment at school. Forky for Bonnie is a precious object that accompanies her when fear comes. Bonnie also took great care of him and made sure the fork-shaped toy remained beside him.

On the other hand, Forky actually feels that he is just meaningless trash and should be in the trash. He also repeatedly tried to escape from Bonnie. However, Woody came and made sure that all didn't happen. At the end of the story, Woody seems to understand that not all children will play with all his toys. They each have their own choices, which one they like and need the most.

To watch Woody's adventure story, you can access it via the Disney Plus Hotstar platform.

One day the two of them mysteriously exchanged their lives with each other while sleeping.

The prognosis begins with the story of a boy who accidentally finds a robot while looking for used goods in the river. It turns out that the robot can secretly record all the expressions it sees. The child was enthusiastic about showing his findings to his father. However, he actually received neglect.

This cold attitude apparently arose from a feeling of loss for his wife who had died. Receiving cold treatment, the little boy tore up his father's image in the family photo. Until then, when he was asleep, the robot moved and his father accidentally saw it. An unexpected incident occurred next. Are you curious about the end of this family story?
