The 30 Best Talking Animals In Film


21. Remy in Ratatouille

The Real Animal: A disease-infested rat, the likes of which populate the sewers and waterways of just about every city in the world.

The Movie Animal: Adorable, house-proud Remy, whose desire to cook completely baffles the rest of his clan – but whose drive pushed him on to bigger and better things.


Best Quote: “If you are what you eat, then I only want to eat the good stuff.”

22. Rango

The Real Animal: A chameleon, which has the nasty habit of disappearing before your very eyes. They also like staring…


The Movie Animal: Rango, who wears the coolest shirt ever (a nod to Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas ) and lives in the Wild West. Oh, and he’s voiced by Johnny Depp.

Best Quote: “I couldn’t help but notice you noticing me noticing you.”

23. Mumble in Happy Feet

The Real Animal: Another Penguin, this one an Emperor Penguin, the tallest and heaviest of all penguins. Not exactly something to brag about.

The Movie Animal: Cuddliest, happy, clappiest of all penguins, Mumble’s equipped with some of the coolest dance moves we’ve seen on screen since Saturday Night Fever.

Best Quote: 
“It’s just like… singing, with your body.”

24. Aslan in The Chronicles Of Narnia

The Real Animal: Lion. King of the pride lands. Sleeps a lot. Yada yada yada.

The Movie Animal: Aslan, also known as ‘the Great Lion’ because essentially he’s Narnia’s version of God. Which is pretty damned cool if you ask us.


Best Quote: “Peter Pevensie, formerly of Finchley. Beaver also mentioned that you planned on turning him into a hat.”

25. Sid in Ice Age

The Real Animal: A sloth, the laziest of all creatures and, weirdly, genetically related to armadillos and anteaters.

The Movie Animal: An endearingly clumsy Chatterbox, Sid would annoy the hell out of you if you had to put up with him in real life. As a movie character, though, he’s hilarious – a lisping, accident-prone try-hard with a brain the size of a grape.

Best Quote: “Look, the Tigers are just playing tag with the antelope… With their teeth…”
