While I have plans to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens a few more times in the theaters, I am also excited to see all these awesome movies Walt Disney Studios is releasing in 2016.
January 29, 2016 – The Finest Hours (Walt Disney Studios)
The Finest Hours stars Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, Holliday Grainger, John Ortiz and Eric Bana. It’s a heroic action-thriller, “The Finest Hours” is the remarkable true story of the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history. #TheFinestHours
March 4, 2016 – Zootopia (Walt Disney Animation Studios)
The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. #Zootopia
My boys can’t wait to see Zootopia and I have to admit the sloth scene at the DMV looks so funny. I’m not sure kids can appreciate it as much as adults. 😉
April 15, 2016 – The Jungle Book (Walt Disney Studios)
“The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub raised in the jungle by a family of wolves, who embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery when he’s forced to abandon the only home he’s ever known. #JungleBook
The preview for The Jungle Book looks amazing. I can’t wait to see this one in theaters with my boys. I think we should try and watch the animated version again before April though!
May 6, 2016 – Captain America: Civil War (Marvel)
I have to admit, seeing Iron Man say “But I was your friend too” in the trailer makes me a little sad. That being said, I can’t wait for the next Marvel movie!! By the way, I’m on #TeamCap! #CaptainAmericaCivilWar
May 27, 2016 – Alice Through the Looking Glass (Walt Disney Studios)
In Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” an all-new spectacular adventure featuring the unforgettable characters from Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories, Alice returns to the whimsical world of Underland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter. #DisneyAlice
June 17, 2016 – Finding Dory (Disney / Pixar)
Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory” reunites everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang, Dory, with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. What can she remember? Who are her parents? And where did she learn to speak Whale? #FindingDory
I love this so much!! I think Dory stole the show in Finding Nemo, so a movie about Dory finding herself is going to be amazing!
July 1, 2016 – The BFG (Walt Disney Studios)
The talents of three of the world’s greatest storytellers – Roald Dahl, Walt Disney and Steven Spielberg – finally unite to bring Dahl’s beloved classic “The BFG” to life. Directed by Spielberg, Disney’s “The BFG” tells the imaginative story of a young girl and the Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. #TheBFG
This trailer looks amazing! I can’t wait to see this awesome book brought to life in this live-action film!!
August 12, 2016 – Pete’s Dragon (Walt Disney Studios)
There hasn’t been much released about Pete’s Dragon but I can’t wait. I loved the original movie as a child.. and need I remind you my husband’s name is Peter and my youngest son is Elliot??! Fans of the Pete’s Dragon will get that signifcaxnce. 🙂 #PetesDragon
