Alongside Zootopia and Kubo, Disney's Moana and Dreamworks' Kung-Fu Panda 3 are nominees for best feature. Independent best feature nominees are mostly from Japan. They include GKids Miss Hokusai and My Life as a Zuchinni, Studio Ghibli's The Red Turtle, CoMix Wave Films Your Name and Sacrebleu Productions' The Way North. TV series nominees include Adventure Time, Star Wars Rebels, Wander Over Yonder and more.

Considering Kubostruggled a bit despite being an excellent film, I'm glad its getting some recognition. Considering its struggles, I'm kind of hoping it beats Zootopia, even though I loved that too. What about you? Who do you think should win the Annie Awards?
