12 Vegan-Friendly Children Movies To Watch During Self-Isolation That Your Inner Child Will Adore, Too

So, it’s official. Binge-watching on Netflix to bust the Coronavirus blues is not only allowed, but actively encouraged! And what better way to spend time with your kids than watching a movie that’s fun, but educational, too? Don’t have kids? Your inner child would LOVE to awaken as you secretly shed a tear or two while watching these golden classics!

1. 101 Dalmatians

One of my favorite movies from my childhood, “101 Dalmatians” is a great movie to show kids with a great vegan message! The villain Cruella De Vil is desperate to get a hold of all these puppies so that she can make a coat out of their fur. A great twist to the fur industry: if we don’t have a problem using sheep, snake, alligator or even fox fur to make pretty coats, then why shouldn’t we be able to use dog fur?

2. Bambi

3. Brother Bear

Another hunting related movie, “Brother Bear” is about a hunter who shoots a female bear (a mother) which makes the spirits angry and in turn, they reincarnate him as a bear. He later ends up meeting the baby cub whose mother he killed and forms a brother-like bond with him.

4. Happy Feet




“Happy Feet” is a movie about a group of penguins trying to communicate with humans by tap dancing. The penguins are trying to show humankind that they don’t belong in confined shelters such as zoos or aquariums, but rather, in the wild.

5. Madagascar

6. Chicken Run




7. Babe

8. Pocahontas

Besides being one of the best Disney movies ever, “Pocahontas” is a great film for vegas-alike. She shows all the newcomers how to respect the forest and take care of the land.

9. Wall-E

This movie. This movie is just too real! Wall-E is the very realistic expectation that will come if us humans don’t change our ways. Earth is polluted with trash and deemed unfit to continue harboring the human race, therefore, all humans are now living in a spacecraft completely overrun by robots and technology and everyone is deathly obese.

10. Horton Hears a Who

“Horton Hears A Who” is a great movie to show kids. It’s cute, it’s fun and has the great message that everyone is important, no matter how small.

11. The Lorax

12. Bee Movie

 

“The Bee Movie” is exactly what you’d expect it to be. It’s a movie that clearly depicts not only why it’s important not to eat honey, but also why we shouldn’t use any kind of animal-derived products.
