Top 5 Combined Live-Action Animated films

Live-Action Animated films have been around for years and never get old. With Space Jam being my all time favourite movie as a child, this post was due to come.

Here’s a list of my top 5 favourite Live-Action Animated films.

  1. Space Jam
Space Jam (1996), Directed by Joe Pytka.

After Swackhammer sends five tiny aliens from Moron Mountain to Looney Tune Land to capture the Looney Tunes, the Looney Tunes think of a plan to earn back their freedom. In his desperation, Bugs Bunny seeks the aid of retired basketball star, Michael Jordan.


2. Casper

Casper (1995), Directed by Brad Silberling.

Kat’s dad, Dr Harvey, is hired to remove the ghosts from an old house. After moving into the house, Kat (Christina Ricci) meets Casper “the friendly ghost”. Casper falls in love with Kat and they both try to discover the secret to bring him back to life.


3. Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), Directed by Robert Zemeckis.

Roger Rabbit is worried his wife is having an affair which results in the studio hiring detective Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins), who hates the toons. When Marvin Acme is found dead, Roger is the prime suspect however Valiant is the only one that is able to prove Roger is innocent, leaving it up to him to clear Rogers name.


4. Paddington

Paddington (2014), Directed by Paul King.

A young bear from Peru travels to London in search of a home but after getting lost at Paddington Station he realises city life isn’t at all how he imagined. The Brown family offer him a temporary home which soon turns into his new permanent home.

5. Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins (1964), Directed by Robert Stevenson.

Although there is only animation in a small part of this film it is still enjoyable. Mary Poppins (Julie Andrews) is the new nanny to two children, helping them become closer to their parents through colour and songs with the aid of her “magical powers”.
