The Christmas holidays are approaching and the little ones in the house will have a lot of free time to be able to do all kinds of activities, including watching movies with the family. And although during these weeks it is most likely that all movie lists will be Christmas, in our Mascotissimas section we want to show a list of movies starring animals.
There is no doubt that if we had to make a list of the best movies starring animals, we would have to talk about “Hachiko, always by your side” (starring Richard Gere) or “A couple of three” (starring Jennifer Aniston, Owen Wilson and a gorgeous Labrador retriever named Marley).
The problem is that we consider that both movies are very dramatic, and since our goal is that you enjoy yourself and have a very pleasant time, here we leave a list of movies starring animals such as cats, dogs, tigers or even pigs.

List of movies starring animals

Babe, the brave little pig

We begin this list with the story of a little pig who lives on a farm and every day sees how his adoptive “parents” (two dogs of the border collie breed) work with the herds of sheep. His dream is to become a sheepherder and in the movie you will see if he finally achieves it or not. This movie is “live” action and animals of different species talk to each other.

Like cats and dogs

This funny comedy talks about the fight between cats and dogs to conquer the world. Cartoonish and full of action, the film seeks to convey positive messages about family or the bond that is created between humans and their pets.
It premiered in 2001 and is suitable for all audiences.

Stuart Little

This endearing comedy tells the story of a family who wants to expand the family and adopt a mouse. This movie is based on the book by EB White, which combines real and animated characters. In this movie very interesting topics are addressed such as sibling rivalry, adoption and family.
It is a film from the year 1999, although the saga continues with Stuart Little 2 (2002) and Stuart Little 3 (2005).

Without a doubt, it is one of the best movies to watch as a family. This fun and interesting children’s comedy makes many nods to adult movies (such as The Godfather), compares a bit the metropolis of Zootropolis with New York City, and all kinds of mammals live in it. Judy Hopps, a bunny who fights against all odds to be a police officer, will investigate, together with a fox, the case of the disappearance of an otter.
This magnificent Disney movie premiered in 2016 and is recommended for children over 4 years of age.


Let’s go with another Disney movie that premiered in the same year as Zootropolis. It talks, as its name suggests, about the lives of different pets such as dogs, cats, birds, guinea pigs and even hawks.
Max couldn’t be happier: he adores his owner Katie, and when she goes to work, he enjoys hanging out with his neighbor’s pets, like Gidget, Chloe and Mel. One day, Katie returns home with a surprise for Max: a dog named Duke, with whom Max will have his differences.
