Generations of Animation
I would say yes! We've been in the Golden age since the '90s. Why you ask? Since the release of Beauty and the Beast VOL. 2 in 1991 until now, there have been more animated movies grossing over one hundred million dollars than any point in history! The top 50 grossing animated movies of all time happened in the last 20 years and the numbers prove it.
According to Rotten Tomatoes, a site that rates movies based on user feedback, the majority of the "Top 100 Animation Movies" have been produced within the previous three decades.
Animated movies are capturing the hearts of folks of all ages - not just kids anymore and the numbers are showing it. For example, Toy Story 3 is the highest grossing animated movie ever (over a billion dollars)!
This leads me to believe that adults are enjoying these types of movies as well. Animated movies are attracting huge audiences and making a serious impact on the film world. Which is why I say, "We are in the Golden age of Animation."
Whether you watched it at home on your VHS player back in the '90s or in today's high tech, 3D movie theaters, animated movies are here to stay.
