Brian O’Driscoll is a bit of a legend on this island so whenever he offers any kind of sage words, us mere mortals tend to listen.
Obviously, the former Ireland captain’s area of expertise is rugby but followers of his Twitter page will know that his opinions aren’t limited to the oval ball. For instance, today BOD got a bit of a debate going by announcing that there was a new leader in his top animated movies list, sparking much debate in the comments underneath.
So what’s the new champion? With Brian being very much a child of the 80s, you would expect the likes of An American Tail, The Land Before Time or All Dogs Go To Heaven to be up there. Not so, it would appear.
Nope, when it comes to animated movies, O’Driscoll seems to be a modern man with 2016 Warner Brothers effort Storks coming out on top of the pile. As you would expect, the movie tells the story of a bunch of storks who deliver babies around the world and stars Andy Samberg, Kelsey Grammer and Jennifer Aniston among others.
STORKS has gone to No 1 on my animated film list. There I said it!

BOD’s followers are generally begging to differ with the likes of Coco, Aladdin and Trolls being offered as alternatives. Which is weird because anybody who has ever seen the original Toy Story will know that it can not and will not ever be beaten.
For what it’s worth, the trailer for the movie endorsed by Ireland’s greatest ever rugby player can be viewed below.
