Top 10 upcoming animated movies 2011

Here's my list of top 10 animated movies to look forward to in 2011:

# 10 : Mars Needs Moms : Releasing in March 2011, this has a shaky storyline, where a youg boy finds that his mom has been abducted by aliens, and goes on an inter-planetary adventure to rescue her.

# 9 : Arthur Christmas : This Christmas special, releasing November 2011, is something to look forward to. Arthur is... Santa's son? How is that possible? The trailer doesn't reveal much, but surely a funny story with an unlikely protagonist.

# 8 : Puss in Boots : This Shrek spin-off has Antonio Banderas has playing Puss-in-boots as usual, and after a fat puss in Shrek Forever After, I really want to see puss as the central character, for once. Releasing November 2011.

# 7 : Winnie The Pooh : This classic returns in July 2011, the same time Harry Potter 7 Part 2 comes out. What makes it so special is that it is traditionally animated: each frame is drawn by hand. 

# 6 : Rio : From the director of Ice Age I have high expectations, and the trailer seems hilarious enough: A bird who's scared of flying! Coming April 2011.

# 5 : Gnomeo & Juliet : A version of Shakespeare's play, based on warring gnomes. And a love story, of course. Releasing in February.

# 4 : The Smurfs : These little blue creatures are coming to central park, August 2011!

# 3 : Rango : March 2010. Johnny Depp giving voice to a chameleon. From the directors of Pirates Of The Caribbean. Need I say more?

# 2 : Kung Fu Panda 2 : Jack Black returns as the epic panda Po, and if this movie turns out to be as good as the first one, It's gonna be one hell of a ride. Coming May 2011.

# 1 : The Adventures Of Tintin : The Secret Of The Unicorn : Tintin and Captain Haddock. Directed by Steven Spielberg, with a little help from Peter Jackson. These two combined, its bound to be spectacular. This will be Spielberg's first venture into animation, and Tintin fans would hope it's Spielberg at his best - though they would have to wait till the end of the year, as it's releasing December 2011.

Note: I didn't include Cars 2 in the top 10 - maybe because I never really liked Cars that much.
