There are so many different kinds of animal and pet movies out in the world. Animated movies, where there are pet sidekicks or companions to the main characters, family movies which are centered on the presence of an animal – whether it be a cat, dog, or even a barn animal like a pig, or just a regular movie where a family or a character just so happens to have a pet.
There are even movies that have animals in them that not necessarily considered to be a pet of any kind. This is usually the case for those animals that are considered to be wild (but perhaps find themselves needing to be rehabilitated.)
In terms of pet movies, there are two different kinds: ones where the animal has the ability to talk, and those who don’t speak at all, but still have mannerisms and characteristics that are unique to them. For example, Sven the reindeer from Frozen does not talk, but he does make noises and facial expressions that are hints to what he’d say if he could. And then there are those pet movies where the animal can talk (or at the audience can hear their thoughts). This happens in movies like A Dog’s Purpose or Charlotte’s Web.
Keep reading to see who can match all these critters to the correct movie.
