Another year has come and gone and as 2009 passes, it leaves behind memorable movies for our young and old audiences alike. Our children had a particularly fun year with the multitude of top kid movies that came out in both 2-D and 3-D. By extension, 2009 movies can include re-releases, I-Max editions, VHS and DVD releases (or Blue-Ray) but any way you look at it 2009 was a blockbuster year. Movies that are rated G, PG and PG-13 are good children, kid and family movies respectively.
Top Animated Kids Films
Films like G-Force, Ice Age: The Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Monsters vs. Aliens, Open Season 2, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel, A Christmas Carol, Ponyo, Astro Boy, Coraline and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs did very well in the theaters, rental and retail stores.
Pixar is probably the best animation studio next to Disney (Pixar and Disney have now merged) when it comes to kids movies and they were hard at work. Although Bolt was officially released in 2008, the DVD came out in 2009 and is a stellar kid's film. John Travolta does the voice of Bolt who is a dog that stars with a little girl in a TV series that he thinks is real. UP was a big hit in theaters. A 78 year old balloon salesman takes a wild ride to get away from his annoying neighbor kid who becomes a stow-away on the old man's trip.READ More on Best Kids Movies 2009: A Year in Review
