This is a list of theatrical animated feature films produced or released by Warner Bros., a division of AT&T's WarnerMedia. Warner Bros. releases films from Warner-owned and non-Warner owned animation studios. Most films listed below are from the Warner Animation Group which began as a feature animation department of Warner Bros. Animation, producing its first feature-length animated film The Lego Movie in 2014. Beginning with Gay Purr-ee in 1962, Warner Bros. Pictures has released the animated-films by other production companies, such as United Productions of America and Don Bluth Ireland Ltd..

Other studio units have also released films theatrically, primarily Warner Bros. Feature Animation which produced a half-dozen animated films before focusing strictly on animating television shows for Cartoon Network, and the studio's distribution unit, which acquires film rights from outside animation studios to release films under the Warner Bros. Pictures, or New Line Cinema film labels. Additionally, Warner Bros.'s Japanese division has helped co-produce and release anime films in that country, such as Summer Wars and Puella Magi Madoka Magica: The Movie.
