I've decided to put whether I actually liked the films aside to spotlight some films who have ladies as main protagonists (not secondary) so this list is not in any particular order. I am excluding disney and pixar since you probably have seen a majority of them. Sadly I am not mentioning Ghibli films because they are a company where about 90% of their films are led to girls so all I have to do is tell you to pick up almost any one of their filmes to get some leading ladies. I will also mention the barbie films because ALL of them have female leads.
Note these are filmes I have actually watched so if you wanna give a shout out to another movie in the comments feel free because it's always great to have mais ladies in our animated movies.
