From live action to animation, 2018 will be a busy year for Disney…and we can’t hardly wait! There are new characters that will be introduced and there will be old ones returning. Just thinking about it makes us all giddy inside! Let’s take a long look at the list of movies that we will be getting a front row seat when they come to theaters!
Black Panther. Some of the most anticipated movies in the world come from the Marvel Cinematic Universe! We can’t tell you how excited we are to FINALLY see Black Panther, which is set to be released on February 16th. This movie takes off after the events of Captain America: Civil War, where King T’Challa returns home to become the new leader. But, of course, there are always enemies lurking. Not long after Black Panther explodes into theaters, will we have to wait for another Marvel story to come to life……the long awaited Avengers: Infinity War will grace the screen on May 4th! Read our Black Panther Review here.
Avengers: Infinity War. We hear there may be A LOT more Chris Pratt in this movie so there’s already a PLUS! But don’t fret, all of our beloved characters will be back as well. Not long after the Avengers, but the most amazing little insect we know and love gets to show his skills once again! That’s right… Ant-Man and the Wasp comes to theaters on July 6th! This is also the FIRST Marvel Cinematic Universe movie with a woman’s name in the title…..pretty cool right?! Evangeline Lilly takes off as the Wasp with Paul Rudd to explore this new adventure! So which one are you more excited for?? All we know is, Marvel RULES this year!
A Wrinkle in Time. One of the most anticipated movies of the year is based off a 1963 novel. The star studded cast of A Wrinkle in Time is slated to be one of the best films of the year. A story of a young girl whose father goes missing and is transported to the fifth dimension, this movie is set to be mesmerizing and breathtaking. Oprah Winfrey leads the cast in this highly talked about film and it will be in theaters March 9th.
The animation is back with a vengeance this year! We are so excited to see 2 of our favorites coming back to the big screen in long-awaited sequels! First, our favorite superhero family returns after sooooo long!
Incredibles 2. That’s right, The Incredibles 2 jumps into theaters June 15th! This will be more of Elastigirl’s adventure this time around as Bob gets to stay home with the kiddos….and if the clip that we were able to see at last years Expo is any indication, this movie is going to be INCREDIBLE! Hint Hint: they finally get to see Jack Jack’s power(s)! How can this year get better right?? How about another Wreck-It Ralph movie?!
Wreck-It Ralph 2. The official name is Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 and it welcomes back our lovable characters, Ralph and Vanellope ….and maybe some other very nostalgic characters *wink, wink*. At last years expo, we were blessed to see a clip from this movie as well…and it made the entire audience cheer. It was quite literally one of the funniest clips we have ever seen and we are dying to see the rest! But, alas….we have to wait awhile as it is not set to come out until November 21st! Honestly, we’re not sure what we are more excited for….it’s gonna be a good year!
Mulan. To follow on the heels of the animation movies, the live-action Mulan comes to the big screen on November 2nd! Based on the Disney animated classic from 1998, Mulan should make all the young girls want to become warriors once again!
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. Disney is deciding to dominate the box office that weekend because on November 2nd, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms will also be released into theaters with Keira Knightley set to play the Sugar Plum Fairy.
Solo: A Star Wars Story. For all you Star Wars fans, you’re in luck! With having to wait for Episode 9 to come out nearly two years from now, Disney knew they needed something in between to tie those super fans over. Enter Solo: A Star Wars Story! This spin-off movie is a prequel about the beloved character Hans Solo in the famous Star Wars saga. It will be released on May 25th with just enough to keep the avid fans’ thirst quenched.
Winnie the Pooh. On August 3rd, an untitled Christopher Robin movie is set to be released with Ewan McGregor playing a grown up Christopher Robin from our beloved Winnie the Pooh stories. This is going to be a live-action film with our favorite characters, Winnie, Piglet, and Eeyore also making appearances. Anything Ewan Mcgregor does is gold, so we’re sure this will be just the same! We do not have a set date yet for Magic Camp, a live-action family comedy that stars Adam Devine and Gillian Jacobs, but expect it to hit the screen sometime in 2018.
Mary Poppins Returns. And finally, to round off the year, one of the most loved Disney classics of all time comes to the screen as a remake.
Mary Poppins Returns will makes its way into our hearts once again on December 21st…the perfect time for a beautiful story. Emily Blunt is set to play our precious Mary and it is sure to be a fan favorite of the year.
Whew! That’s quite a list! We’re going to go grab our popcorn now and maybe even some gift cards so that we are fully prepared for what this year holds. It definitely won’t be boring that’s for sure! Come get a front row (well maybe middle section) seat with us and let us know which ones you are most excited about! See ya at the movies!
