The Simpsons (1989)




(x)

Sam Simon, one of the original creators of The Simpsons, was an animal rights activist and it reflects in the character of Lisa. The episode Lisa the Vegetarian was partially based off of the experiences of the vegetarian show runner at the time David Mirken, and Paul McCartney is said to have appeared on the show based on the stipulation that Lisa stay a vegetarian character. All in all, you can be sure there were veg*ns behind the scenes of her great character.

Cinderella (2015)
The repeating themes through out the movie of, "Have courage, be kind" and "Just because something is a certain way doesn't mean it should be that way" are all veg*n friendly messages, whether or not the movie is aware of this connotation. Cinderella's most famous friends are mice and her kindness applies to both human and nonhuman animals alike.
The prince falls in love with Ella at first meeting after she asks him not to hurt the stag they are hunting as she sees that he has much yet to do with his life. The prince says, "We are hunting, it's what is done yadayada," and the movie's main themes are uttered. Her great kindness is thus part of the reason the prince and Ella connect to each other and damn if that doesn't have vegan feels all over it.
Though Cinderella is shown in the film thanking a chicken for their egg it is hard to believe someone who so values kindness would do so if she had the knowledge that such practices hurt the health of chickens .

Finding Nemo (2003)
(x)
Movies which take the perspective of animals are usually veg*n friendly for obvious reasons. The association of animals as being 'child-friendly' means their perspectives, anthropomorphized though they are to facilitate humans better understanding and relating to them, are often presented towards younger audiences.

The annual flood has failed to arrive in the Delta, water has become scarce and the native animals fiercely fight over it.

The animals soon discover the reason for the lack of water in the Delta: a dam has been constructed to supply energy for a luxury resort owned by a man named Mr. Smith.

Soylent Green (1973)
In a dystopian world where the environment has been ruined and the poor live in overcrowded cities, a murder investigation leads a man to the knowledge that the "soylent green" many depend on for food is not being produced from sea algae but human remains. Nothing like the personal satisfaction a vegan has when watching humans freak out over cannibalism. Karma's a dear.

Horror film which is apparently vegetarian themed. That cannibalism thing again.

The alien people of the movie farm Earth humans in what is said to be an entirely humane and painless process. This is obviously unacceptable to the Earth humans.

The 5th Wave (2016)
Despite the low quality of the film, there is one scene where a human passionately argues to an alien that his kind would never exterminate another species. To which the alien almost rolls his eyes and tells him they've been doing it for hundreds of years.

A father sends his son penguins from Antarctica and his children become taken with them. Finding himself unable to properly care for them, the penguins are traded to the zoo but he later regrets the decision, steals the penguins back and frees them back in Antarctica with a promise to visit. Differs slightly from the book where instead of a zoo the penguins are sold to a circus with Mr. Popper finally coming to the conclusion that show business is no place for a penguin. There is of course the irony that the penguins of the movie were used for exactly that, making this film rather contradictory. (x)

Bee Movie (2007)
(x)
Although the first half of the movie is veg themed, the second half after the court ruling proposes that somehow without humans 'sharing' (because in this case bees are able to communicate their consent to this) their honey, somehow crops will no longer be pollinated because if bees aren't working for modern capitalist minded humans they become lazy. *sigh*

Vegan Love (2009)
Short film on youtube about a vegan guy who goes on online dates looking for a vegan girlfriend while his best mate makes a documentary. The ending is kind of meh as there seems to be a theme around dating nonvegans. But seeing legitimate representation for 30 minutes is pretty nice.
"What do you expect me to do Alex? I thought that a film about a vegan would be, you know, like releasing chimps from the lab and then doing some yoga and running some errands and stuff, you're just so bloody normal."

As part of an intergalactic coalition, a well-meaning space alien volunteers to bring a message of self-actualization and harmony with nature to the one planet rejected by all her peers as incorrigible--Earth. This family-oriented French sci-fi comedy chronicles her adventures on the chaotic planet.

Media around or with some associations with anti-animal exploitation, animal friendliness or general harmlessness and compassion for all (ahimsa). Or just TV that has some positive veg-head characters.

Suggestions welcomed.

Having gone through a whole lot of movies with vegetarian characters, I can definitively say that the majority of the time their being vegetarian has nothing to do with bringing a theme of anti-animal exploitation, anti-bigotry or compassion into the narrative, which considering that these are the major things the vegetarian identity and certainly the vegan identity is based around, is pretty saddening.
