I thought with the many claims of lack of representation in children's films as a PoC I should take it upon myself to bring some underrated Film of different cultures to light. Granted not all of these are necessarily children's films, but they are all animated and I personally think every kid should see them.

I have each ethnicity I could think of and animated Film where that ethnicity is well-represented. I want to build on this so if te don't see your ethnicity here please tell me, I want as many Film as I can get with as many different walks-of-life! These depictions are supposed to be respectful.

Note: These are animated feature films that represent the ethnicity, It does not take into account where the Film were made, but instead which ethnicity is the one being represented on screen. So for Example, a French made movie whose main cast is Arabic will be in the Arabic section and not the French, the on-screen people is what matters not the nation it was created in.
