We go over the progress on [Caminandes 3](https://cloud.blender.org/p/caminandes-3), the brand new [Character Library](https://cloud.blender.org/p/characters) on Blender Cloud, and finally the topic of the week: Top 3 Animated Movies. Each one of us (Andy, Francesco, Hjalti, Sarah, and Pablo) had to pick its personal top 3 favorite animated movies of all time. But that was not enough, so we also made a few honorable mentions, and we asked the community to pick their own favorites: <blockquote><p>hi there, my favorite animated movies are: Bugs, Toy Story and Rango also The Lion King</p>&mdash; Harold Tovar (@haroldgrafico) <a href="https://twitter.com/haroldgrafico/status/684793592745988096">January 6, 2016</a></blockquote> <blockquote><p lang="en" dir="ltr">no favorite but with good animate details: Avatar, Rango, The incredibles :)</p>&mdash; Javier Salcedo (@salc2) <a href="https://twitter.com/salc2/status/684795011834220548">January 6, 2016</a></blockquote> <blockquote><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Up, Sintel and Tron Legacy (well, Tron is like 50% animated).</p>&mdash; niklas ravnsborg (@niklasravnsborg) <a href="https://twitter.com/niklasravnsborg/status/684799489492783106">January 6, 2016</a></blockquote> <blockquote><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Rango!!!
