The Best Kids' Movies of the Decade (2010–2019)

The end of a decade is a great time to reflect on all the magical, emotional, and exciting experiences we've shared at the movies over the past 10 years. Although there have been thousands of phenomenal films to hit theaters (and even streaming services!) since 2010 began, we wracked our brains to choose our very favorite kids' films that came out during that period. This list is in order by age rating and proves that anyone from any background can step up and be a courageous, compassionate, and inspiring hero.
