Can you think of any live-action movies with an animated sequence? We’ve come up with a list of interest! But please note, we have ruled out including any movies where animation is integral to the film. So no Enchanted and unfortunately also excluding the very underrated Macaulay Culkin children’s film The Pagemaster.


None of us turned up to the cinema for the following list of films expecting to see animation – but we were grateful for the additions:

Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) Dir. Quentin Tarantino

Mary Poppins (1964) Dir. Robert Stevenson

Starsky & Hutch (2003) Dir. Todd Phillips

Last Action Hero (1993) Dir. John McTiernan

The ultimate cross-over movie? This flopped given the size of its budget but still rates high on my list of Arnie films. A boy tumbles from reality into a world created by cinema and chaos ensues! Lookout for the cartoon cat amongst many cameos at the police station…

Annie Hall (1977) Dir. Woody Allen

Deadpool (2016) Dir. Tim Miller

500 Days of Summer (2009) Dir. Marc Webb

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) Dir. Edgar Wright
