Make ours a supersize bucket of popcorn. Half sweet, half salted. Our plans are pretty much sorted for the 3 years thanks to Disney.
Their films are basically life. So we’re more than happy to pencil in these release dates in our diaries because HOT DAYUM these movies are all going to be brilliant. Because it’s Disney. And Disney is king.
So, for 2017, what’s in store?
Buckle up, film nerds. We’ve still got a long way to go before this year is even close to being done. And trips to the cinema are essential.
We’re not counting ‘Beauty and the Beast’ because it’s already out there, soz.
‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’
What? Didn’t you know Marvel was owned by Disney? Well now you do. Knowledge is power. Use it wisely. This sequel has a lot to live up to. The first film was SO MUCH FUN! We’re all in love with Groot, right?
Lightning McQueen is back, baby. VROOM VROOM!
‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge’
Ok, so we’ve been a little confused over our feeling for Johnny Depp since the whole ‘Fantastic Beasts’ thing. But we’re down for this. It’s PIRATES after all.
Another Thor film? Yep. Looks that way. Tbh we’re only going to see it for the cameos and the little “hidden” extras after the credits.
You would be forgiven for not knowing what this is. It’s been fairly quiet on the promo front, what with ‘Beauty and the Beast’ taking over everyone’s lives at the moment. But ‘Coco’ hits box offices in November and is supposed to be set around Mexico’s Day of the Dead. INTRIGUING!
‘Star Wars’ untitled VIII
Yussss. We’re ready. Beam us up… Wait. Wrong franchise. Soz.
OMFG YES! With Emma Stone as the leading lady and the OG live action Cruella, Glenn Close, as executive producer, this film is going to be so fabulous, we can’t even. Gotta wait until December though. Sad times…
We got a good glimpse of this character in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and he was so badass that we’re stoked that he’s got his own film. Yes, Marvel. YES! Heroes be on fleek.
‘Avengers: Infinity War’
Because what’s better than one Marvel character on screen? All of them.
‘Star Wars’ untitled spin-off
Because ‘Rogue One’ basically blasted everyone out of the water with how brilliant it was. Despite having less hype than it’s bigger brother, ‘The Force Awakens’.
‘Toy Story 4’
Oh hell yes. This is one of the big ones because who DIDN’T grow up loving the originals?
Say it with us now “Live. Action. Mulan.” Now you may squeal. It’s going to be so good.
Based on ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. It’s coming in November 2018. We dunno. Hasn’t that been done to death lately? But we’ll prolly still go see it anyway.
‘Mary Poppins Returns’
EXCUSE MOI?! Just hold a moment while we hyperventilate. The original movie is like a rite of passage for most kids. You have to know a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down…
Feed the birds…
Emily Blunt has already been cast in the role. Releasing on CHRISTMAS DAY? PERF!
She’s a boss. And we say it’s much needed. We’ve got ‘Wonder Woman’ hitting screens, but there still ain’t enough female superheroes leading the way.
‘Avengers: Infinity War Pt. II’
Oh yeah, haven’t you heard? They’re splitting this film in two. Twice as many Avengers. Twice as much money. :P
‘Star Wars’ untitled IX
Yep. There’s no waiting around for a lifetime for the next film like the previous cycles. They’re banging them out hard and fast. The force is strong with them.
Remember them? Yep. They’re getting a remake. FUN!
Live action movies confirmed but with no set release date include: Dumbo, The Lion King and Aladdin.
