This list of animated feature-length films compiles animated feature films from around the world and is organized alphabetically under the year of release (the year the completed film was first released to the public). Theatrical releases as well as made-for-TV and direct-to-video movies of all types of animation are included.

In order to qualify for this list, films must be "over 40 minutes long and have animation in at least 75% of their running time, or have at least 40 minutes of animation in total." This list chooses to use the AFI, AMPAS and BFI definitions of a feature film. The Academy Award for Best Animated Feature requires that a film be at least 70 minutes long; however, this definition is historically inconsistent (for example, some films from the early days of Disney animation are less than 70 minutes long, with the shortest length belonging to Saludos Amigos at 43 minutes). For marionette films like Team America: World Police, or films featuring non-animated puppets, see Films featuring puppetry. Also, primarily live-action films with heavy use of special effects are not included.

Lost/unfinished films

Film Country Notes
The Apostle
El Apóstol
Argentina 1917: The world's first animated feature film, by Quirino Cristiani. All copies believed to be lost in a fire in 1926.
Without a Trace
Sin dejar rastros
Argentina 1918: Cristiani's second feature film, following on the success of The Apostle. The film was seized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and seems to never have been shown. All copies are believed to be lost without a trace.
Pacala on the Moon
Păcală în Lună
Romania 1920: the first Romanian animated movie created by the animator Aurel Petrescu, unfortunately lost.
Peludópolis Argentina 1931: Cristiani's third feature film, and the world's first to have a synchronized soundtrack. Also believed to be lost.
The Adventures of Pinocchio Italy 1936: Was supposed to be Italy's first animated feature, but it was never finished and is now thought to be lost.
The Tale of the Priest and of His Workman Balda (film)
Сказка о попе и о его работнике Балде (Skazka o pope i o yego rabotnike Balde)
USSR 1933-36: Directed by Mikhail Tsekhanovsky, with music composed by Shostakovich. It would have been the USSR's first traditionally-animated feature film, but it was abandoned shortly before its completion due to various production difficulties. Most of the film was lost in WW2, and the 6-minute market scene stands alone as a classic of Russian animated films.
Hong Gil Dong South Korea 1967: South Korea's first animated feature (traditional animation). None of the prints of the film are known to exist in present time.
The Thief and the Cobbler US 1960s-1990s: film was taken away from the director and released as Arabian Knight and The Princess and the Cobbler; heavily edited versions with much of the already-filmed footage cut out. Unofficial restorations of the original film are available.
The Works US 1970s-1980s: It was meant to be the first computer animated feature in the world, but was never completed.
Train Arrival
Прибытие поезда (Pribytiye poyezda)
Russia A watercolour-animated feature film begun in 1986 by Aleksandr Tatarskiy - part of the reason for the formation of PILOT Studio, the first private animation studio in the USSR. About 40 minutes were finished before hyper-inflation hit Russia in the late 1990s. The unfinished film was highly praised by several masters of Russian animation who saw it (including Fyodor Khitruk, Yuriy Norshteyn, Eduard Nazarov, Igor Kovalyov and others), before the film materials were lost to three consecutive floods in late 2005.
