Creative passion and critical acclaim

DNEG Animation is built on the passion and talents of our team! From complex graphic novel adaptations to beautifully-stylized films, each show is a celebration of the craft of animation. We are so proud to have Nimona nominated in this year’s Academy Awards® for ‘Best Animated Feature’. This achievement is part of a growing list of nominations for this wonderful film, which include ‘Best Feature’ and ‘Best Character Animation’ from a total of 9 nominations from the ANNIE Awards, a Visual Effects Society nomination for ‘Outstanding Visual Effects in an Animated Feature’, as well as a Critics Choice nomination for ‘Best Animated Film’. The team’s incredible work on Entergalactic was also recognised as part of the ‘Outstanding Animated Program’ nominations at the Emmys earlier this year.

The Garfield Movie (2024), Garfield (voiced by Chris Pratt), the world-famous, Monday-hating, lasagna-loving indoor cat, is about to have a wild outdoor adventure! After an unexpected reunion with his long-lost father – scruffy street cat Vic (voiced by Samuel L. Jackson) – Garfield and his canine friend Odie are forced from their perfectly pampered life into joining Vic in a hilarious, high-stakes heist.


Nimona (2023) is Netflix’s groundbreaking and critically acclaimed animated movie adaptation of the best-selling graphic novel of the same name by N.D Stevenson. The DNEG Animation team was honoured to be trusted with this important movie, which explores its core theme of acceptance with originality, authenticity, and humour.

The DNEG Animation team’s beautiful and lovingly-rendered work perfectly supported the sweet and funny character moments and story.

Entergalactic (2022) is a beautifully-stylized coming together of music, fashion and, of course, animation. Created by Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi and Kenya Barris for Netflix, the DNEG Animation team was tasked with creating a world that felt like a concept painting sprung to life!


Ron’s Gone Wrong (2021) is a fun-filled and charming coming-of-age movie for Locksmith Animation and Twentieth Century Studios, and DNEG Animation’s first major release! The film received great acclaim on its worldwide theatrical release and is now a beloved fan-favourite on Disney+


Mr Spam Gets A New Hat (2021), a short animated film from Oscar-winning director William Joyce, is a tale of hope and love beautifully told in the style of a silent movie. The short, which was produced by DNEG Animation using real-time game-engine technologies, has been a great success on the festival circuit and has won a number of awards.
