Top Ten Animated Movies (Non-Disney) - Anastasia
Anastasia is Amazing
Anastasia, a two dimensional animated movie, produced by Fox Animated Studios, explores the idea of what happened to the missing Russian Princess Anastasia. While the question is based on a historical mystery the story of Anya/ Anastasia is completely fabricated. Through Anya's story, the orphan with amnesia, we learn what becomes of Anastasia and why she never took her place in royal society. Check out the Anastasia promo.
Anastasia is one of my favorite animated movies because of well fleshed out characters, amazing music, and the perfect merge of character development and action sequences.

Animated Movie Makes Top 10 List - Not Made by Disney - Shrek
Shrek is the story of an ogre sent on a quest, with the aid of Donkey, to rescue Princess Fiona in order to get his swamp back. This story is somewhat similar to Beauty and the Beast except Shrek remains and ogre and the beautiful princesss, believed to be cursed, is transformed into an ogre (true love's form). Learn more about Shrek by checking out the Shrek trailer.
Shrek is a beautiful movie worthy of inclusion in my Top 10 Non-DISney Animated Movies list because it reminds the viewer that we do not have to change who we are to suit someone else's label of us, that it is ok to be yourself, and that what's inside us that matters.
Since Shrek's debut in 2001, 3 other full length sequels have been spun, not to mention 2 Christmas and 1 Halloween special. The Shrek saga has also produced a spin-off movie entitled Puss in Boots set to debut in 2011.
