Heartbreak and reality have its place in cinema, and even in children's entertainment to some degree. But sometimes you just want to kick back with your little one and watch a feel-good, fun, family movie. In that case, these children's movies with the best happy endings are the perfect choice. Sometimes you just need a little happily ever after, and that's OK.
Although it's the stereotype that all kid's movies end on a positive note, many films aimed at children do have ambiguous endings. I mean, just think about the Toy Story films and try not to cry. It's serious stuff, right? And just about any Don Bluth film is undercut with some heavy themes about loss of home or family members. (Spoiler alert: at the end of All Dogs Go To Heaven, the lead dog dies. And it's sad.)
So if you're in the mood for a movie where the hero straight-up wins at the end, then look no further. These films have their stressful moments, sure, but everything works out fine for the protagonist and their buddies at the end. And sometimes, that's the thing your family needs most: watching the guy guy (or gal) come up on top and earn their happy ending after so much struggle.
