7. Aladdin :
Rating : 8.6/10
Aladdin is a musical fantasy film made by Disney. One day Aladdin, named a boy, gets a lamp from a cave.

Background music, Animation style, Storyline, Screenplay are amazing. But if you are mature enough, it sometimes feels childish because its main target audience is children.

Just imagine A film with no action, no evil adults, no monster. A peaceful world where a kid meets with a strange creature in the forest, and she curls up on its tummy and has a nap. How sweet it is, isn’t it?

4. Toy story:
Rating : 9.1/10
“Toy story” creates a beautiful universe of toys inside the children’s bedroom. Sometimes I am amazed how pixel finds the story like that and create beautiful movies like Toy Story.
In this Movie, Heros are Toys, not humans. They share a beautiful bond between them. They come to life when nobody’s watching. Its conflict is between an old-fashioned cowboy who has always been a little boy’s favourite toy and the new space ranger who may replace him.
This movie shows the deep psychological journey of our human emotion with the touch of fun and hilarious ways. You can relate to them easily and deeply. This movie’s target audience is children, but adults will be entertained equally.
Sound design, Animation quality, Storytelling, Directions are just beautiful, and dialogue writing is so awesome that you can feel every emotion. That makes this movie series awesome to great. This is another one of the best fantasy movies made by pixel and Disney. You should obviously watch it.
3. Harry Potter Series:
Rating : 9.2/10
A true hero and a true villain share the same destiny, Wizard world, Hogwarts, Mysterious Creature. When I say these words, what image is created in your mind? Yes, I am talking about Harry Potter and Voldemort. A mother who sacrificed herself to protect her child from Voldemort. His uncle and aunts abandoned the boy. He had no friends.
There was no one in this world for him until he was 12 years old. When he was 12 years old, Hogwarts, the school of magic, called him with applause and warmly welcomed the wizarding world. That is the beginning of a true hero.
This movie created a deep impact with a beautiful world-building. This wizard world will definitely fascinate you. Harry makes new friends here, and these friendships give the meaning of his life. After entering the world, Voldemort awakens but in his weak form. How did he become strong? How did Harry defeat him? This conflict is very interesting to watch.
Acting, casting, background music, screenplay all are good, but the Worldbuilding and Storyline is great. You should definitely watch it. This the first best fantasy movies you had seen if you were 90’s kid.
2. Spirited Away:
Rating : 9.5/10
Another Hayao Miyazaki’s great movie directed and animated by Studio Ghibli. Ghibli Studio is known as Japan’s Disney. Now you understand the greatness of this movie. This creates its magic all over the world which makes this movie Academy award winner and I give the title of second best fantasy movies on my list.
Chihiro, A girl who is trapped in a wizard world with her parents. Her parents become a pig for their greed toward food. She wants to escape from there with her parents, but she doesn’t know how to do that. A boy named Haku wants to help her return to their world. How does Chihiro return? Who is Haku? Why does he want to help her? To know this answer, you must watch this Academy award-winning masterpiece.

1. Lord of the Rings:
Rating : 9.8/10
Lord of The Rings is a fantasy, Action, Adventure Film. The story grows around a hobbit named Frodo. Hobbits are calm, reliable and party-type species. Hobbits and Elves are live in this fantasy world. One day a cursed ring awakens a very powerful creature. Elves and Frodo and his friends want to destroy the ring. They go on a journey to destroy that ring and save the world. In the list of Best Fantasy movies of hollywood, this movie has always have a different place.
How can they do it? What is the power of that ring? Will the ring possess elves and hobbits? What do they do now? To know all this answer, you have to watch that series.
That adventure series won 17 Oscars. The first part won 4, the Second part won 2, and the Third part won 11 Oscars. Can you imagine it? One series won 17! If you know about the Oscar award, then you would know that Franchise movies can’t get Oscar easily.
Even In these movies, using a formal language named Quenya (Elvish language) is really existing, and this language has proper grammar for using it in your daily life. J. R. R. Tolkien, the writer of “Lord of the Rings”, creates this language. I hope now you get the greatness of this movie. I don’t have enough words to express its greatness. Even when I saw it, I forget about my surroundings, and it fully drove My consciousness into it. This movie will hypnotize you for sure. These movies have a unique charm. That thing makes this Movie series awesome and Must watch. This is the first best fantasy movies all time in my list.
