What do 101 Dalmatians, The BFG, Frozen, The Lion King and E.T all have in common? Well, they’re just some of the movies film experts have classed as must-see movies for all kids. Educational charity, Into Film, have created the ultimate list alongside industry experts to figure out once and for all the top 50 family films suitable (and a must-watch) for those up to age 11. Basically, the legit 50 movies that kids need to watch before their not kids anymore; a kiddy-film bucket list. It’s the dream, right?!
The list covers absolutely everything and has been split into five different sections; Classics, including the likes of Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book and Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory; Thrills & Chills, including Coraline, Kubo and the Two Strings and Zootropolis; Adventure, including Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, Toy Story and Trolls; Kids Rule! Including Annie, Matilda, and The BFG; and Heroes & Villains, including Beauty and the Beast, Frozen and The Lion King.
The charity has said that this epic list contains the movies that are most likely to benefit a child’s creativity and development, and chief executive of Into Film has said that he hopes getting the chance to watch these movies would help create ‘a love of movies that can last a lifetime. Film entertains, educates and inspires. The Must See Movies list of the 50 films every child should see before they reach the age of 11 has been selected by our panel to do all those things.’ Mary Poppins herself would be proud!
