The origins of animation can be traced to antiquity when the French artist Émile Cohl made creative use of stop-motion methods in 1907. It has evolved in numerous forms throughout history – from ancient Greek ceramics to the optical playthings of the 17th century to the computer-generated imagery of the 21st century. Now it developed into the technological marvel we see today.

However, there are so many platforms with extraordinary animated movies currently, but HBO Max’s library has a solid collection. Their Studio Ghiblis collection has a separate shortcut in the main menu. In addition, you can find numerous Warner Bros. Animation and DC Animated movies of your liking.
