They do count, I even posted Osmosis Jones which is also a cross breed of animation and live action.
And Avatar would classify in the same class too?
Space Jam (1996 with Michael Jordan, Wayne Knight, and Bill Murray) too?
eh, Avatar wasnt animated, it was just full of CG.
if that counts that so does the Star Wars prequel trilogy.
As already said Avatar was full of CG not animated, if you include Avatar you would have to include any movie that had a lot of CG, like Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Star Trek, any other movie that uses CG to make alien creatures.
For my favorite animated movies I would have to say Tangled and Wreck it Ralph
