What makes a good littlespace movie?
For me, a good littlespace movie is one you can watch and enjoy in littlespace. It should be easy to watch, but also have an emotional story. It doesn’t have to be related to ageplay, although some of the ones I picked have themes of growing up and friendship, since I think those work best.
I tried to pick ones that you could enjoy whether in littlespace or not. The films listed all have some emotional depth to them, and they will all draw you in and keep you watching.
I added a little clip from each movie, if you haven’t seen any of them, check out the video and see if you might like it!
Best Littlespace Movies:
1: The Lion King (1994)
The Lion King is the greatest movie of all time. It has a charming story, characters, animation and soundtrack. But you knew that already, didn’t you? Who HASN’T seen this by now? If you haven’t seen it, GO WATCH IT! And not the crappy 2019 remake version which was honestly the worst thing of all time.
NAAAAAAAAAAAAA TSINVENYAAAAAAAAAAA BWAWAWI SHIBAWA
2: The Land before Time (1988)
I watched this so many times growing up. Yes this list is basically going to be a 90s kid list of movies. A seriously emotional film about loss, hope, family and friendship that everyone needs to see at least once.
The story follows a cute lil dino called Littlefoot and his friends as they try to find their way back to their herd after they get separated.
This movie does have one really very sad scene at the beginning. I still can’t get through it without crying and I’m 28, but the rest of the film is totally worth it. Watching this movie from start to finish is such a cathartic experience, if you need a good cry, this is the one to watch.
„Let your heart guide you. It’s whispers, so listen closely“ ???
3: Finding Nemo (2003)
Alright, time for a less sad movie. Finding Nemo is a wholesome movie about an overprotective father trying to find his son after getting separated. Awesome animation with memorable, complex characters and a surprisingly deep story.
Just keep swimming
Lilo and Stitch (2002)
An orphaned Hawaiian girl finds and adopts a cute little alien (which she believes is a dog), welcomes him in to their family and protects him from people chasing him.
Really nice and wholesome story about what it means to be family.
Ohana means family. Family means no one gets left behind…
My Neighbor Totoro (1988)
One of most iconic animated movies to come out of Japan.
For me, this movie is the best possible explanation of what it means to be little, and the benefits of having a childlike personality. There’s no other film quite like it.
The film follows two girls as they spend a year in the countryside while their mother is recovering from an illness.
The plot isn’t really the main focus in the movie, it’s more about the girls, and how they try to deal with their emotions with the help of a friendly spirit whom they name Totoro.
If you haven’t seen it, it’s a must watch, especially for littles and caregivers. It contains a lot of deep meaning about what it means to be a kid and how kids and adults deal with emotions differently.
Ice Age (2002)
There are so many Ice Age films now, but the first one is still the best.
Sid, Manny and Diego – a bunch of unlikely travelling friends return a young human to his tribe while migrating to avoid the impending ice age.
This is a funny and heartwarming film about friendship, family and forgiveness. Through the film we see the friendship build in to an unconventional family.
It has an awesome soundtrack too.
Spirited Away (2001)
Another Ghibli film. Often called the greatest animation of all time.
I don’t want to ruin the story for you, since it’s definitely worth watching without knowing the plot beforehand, but basically the story follows a young girl called Chihiro, who accidentally stumbles in to the spirit world while on the way to her new house with her parents.
Her parents eat some food that was meant to be for the spirits, and get turned in to pigs. Chihiro has to work in the spirit world to try to free her parents.
The movie is scary, sweet, tense, funny, and wonderful the whole way through. You’ll still be thinking about this movie a week after you’ve finished watching it.
Another absolute must watch. (For anyone, not only littles!)
Don’t worry – no spoilers!
Cute, wholesome Disney film that is just as moving today as it was almost 70 years ago when it was released.
Bambi is a cute little deer baby. As winter takes its toll on the forest, we see Bambi growing up, forming friendships, dealing with heartbreak and loss, having fun and building a family.
This film is almost 70 years old now, but it hasn’t lost its charm.
There is one sad scene, you probably know the scene I’m talking about…
Brr brr brr brr BRRRR!
Oliver & Company (1988)
I watched this a lot growing up. It’s an animated Disney loosely based on Oliver Twist, if Oliver was a cute lil kitty.
The main character (Oliver) was abandoned in the streets when he was born, and has to learn to survive and thrive in the streets of NYC.
Really awesome soundtrack by Huey Lewis
Wall · E (2008)
Wall-E is an endearing love story, and a sci fi epic rolled in to one.
If you don’t like sci fi, don’t let it put you off.
Wall-E is a lonely little robot who has been left behind on Earth to clean up after humanity ruined it. He meets a strange visitor and falls in love, leading him on an adventure in to space and deciding the fate of humankind in the process.
This movie will subvert your expectations! If you’ve not seen it, it’s really worth watching.
Spirit – Stallion of the Cimarron (2002)
Matt Damon is a horse. What more do you need to know?
Oh my god, now that I’m watching the trailer again, the horse actually LOOKS like Matt Damon. I don’t think I can take this seriously.
The story is kind of simple, Spirit is captured by soldiers, who try to tame him. The movie follows his struggle trying to make his way back to his herd.
I don’t know how much of my feelings about this film are just nostalgia. Maybe a bit, but it’s still a pretty good film!
I KNOW you’ve already seen Shrek. If you haven’t, what is wrong with you?!
Shrek is a hilarious comedy about a misunderstood ogre who just wants to live in peace in his swamp. In order to get his swamp back he ends up going on a quest to attempt to rescue a princess to please the local Lord.
He meets some friends who don’t judge him for being an ogre, and realises living alone in a swamp isn’t going to make him happy.
Ogres are like onions..
If the opening scene from UP doesn’t make you cry, nothing will. (Relationship goals)
An uplifting (literally) story of love and loss. The main character Mr Fredrickson is bitter about hopes and dreams he hasn’t managed to accomplish in his life, and decides on a whim to travel to Paradise Falls.
With a relatable characters, a sweet story and a really memorable soundtrack this is one of my favorites.
The many adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977)
The film is read like a story by the narrator. They even animated the book as part of the film.
The adventures of Pooh, Piglet, Owl, Eyore, Tigger, Rabbit and Christopher Robin are completely timeless, wholesome and satisfying to watch. (the original Winnie the Pooh book was written in 1926!)
Thanks for reading!
