Movie nights are always good date nights to have as a couple. Especially if you’re staying inside and want something to do. Obviously, there are loads of romantic films and comedies that you could choose to watch as a couple. But, there’s another genre that always goes down a treat.
Animated films are great couple films because they’re always fun and enjoyable. You don’t have to pay too much attention to the plot, and they’re never super serious. So, you can pop them on, have some popcorn, and snuggle up all night long.
Keeping that in mind, here are the best animated films to watch with your partner:
3 best animated movies to watch with your partner
Spirited Away came out in 2001 and is widely regarded as one of the best-animated films of all time. It’s from Studio Ghibli, meaning it features the typical Japanese animated style. It’s a film you simply have to watch as a couple because it hits you in the feels.
There’s no comedy here, but you get to witness a strange and fantastical adventure that takes your mind to loads of different places. If you live in the UK, you can watch this film on Netflix. If you want to know how to watch Spirited Away in a different country, the answer is simple: use a VPN. That goes for any film on this list that’s region-locked to a specific country’s streaming catalog!
One of the best Pixar films ever created. Inside Out takes you into the mind of a young girl who moves to a new city. It’s a funny film with a very important underlying message. You and your partner will love this because it’s the type of film you can put on the TV and watch while chuckling together.
If you have kids, it’s even better as it gives you an insight into what’s going on in their heads. There are some really funny couples moments as well – like one scene when the mum is trying to get the dad’s attention and it shows what’s happening in his head.
It’s one of those scenes where you turn to each other and laugh at the accuracy. You can watch it on Disney plus if you’re interested!
Honestly, you can’t beat Up if you want a film to cozy up to on the sofa together. The start is painfully romantic and sad, and the whole story will leave you with tears in your eyes. Sometimes, the tears are happy, other times they are sad. Either way, it’s a film that’s impossible for you not to enjoy.
By the time it’s finished, you’ll both feel a little closer and more appreciative of one another. Again, this is also available on Disney Plus, along with every other Pixar film that’s been released.
