36 Best Robot Movies for Kids & Families

best robot movies for kids

When most people think of robots, they think of technologically advanced, high-performing marvels of the future. In truth, though, robots – or at least the idea of them in popular culture – have been around since the 1920’s when Czech playwright Karel Capek made them a feature of his play R.U.R., short for Rossum’s Universal Robots. Ever since, people have been fascinated by the idea of robots.

This is especially true of children. There’s just something about robots that’s exciting, interesting and a little bit scary. When kids watch robot movies, they can connect with the robots because they have such humanoid personalities.

Whether they’re good or bad robots, they still have very human desires, drives and characteristics. Perhaps we see a little of ourselves in these cinematic machines, and that’s why robot movies are so popular.

Here we’ve compiled a list of the best robot movies for kids of all ages:
