There are plenty of reasons why kids of all ages love the lazy December holidays, but what would this time of the year be without the M-Net Movies Smile Animania festival? This year’s feast of Animania films on DStv channel 105 promises to be even bigger and better – and much more fun!

For six weeks, starting on Wednesday 6 December, M-Net Movies Smile will take viewers on an imaginary Animania World Tour. During this 42-day trip you will be accompanied by all your favourite animated characters - from the adventurous Moana to the adorable minions and the big ocean’s cutest forgetful fish, Dory. 

The animated films on the M-Net Movies Animania World Tour will be scheduled according to weekly themes:

  • Week 1 belongs to the "A Graders”. In this week see all the films that received several accolades and made big bucks at the box office daily at 19:00. Tune in for films such as Finding Dory, Sing, Moana, Monsters vs. Aliens and Minions.

  • In Week 3 at 11:00, glamorous Barbie is strolling into the limelight. From princesses to fairies, dog lovers to space explorers, Barbie is your companion on all magical adventures imaginable. 
  • Week 4 is all about big heart, big emotion, good vibes and good waves. Every day at 19:00 the Animania World Tour dives into the ocean to join the sea creatures of Shark Tale, Sammy 2: The Turtle’s Tale, The Reef 2, Spongebob Squarepants The Movie and Surf's Up 2: Wave Mania.

If you don’t have access to M-Net Movies Smile on DStv Premium, you can also enjoy animated fun on M-Net Movies Zone with the channel’s very first movie festival for kids. “Kids Club” will show delightful films for the young ones. The channel has lined up 5 hours of rib-tickling, side-splitting movies 7 days a week: on weekdays between 10:00 and 15:00 and on weekends between 9:00 and 14:00.
