Who’s in for some movie time? Spending time with your family doesn’t always have to be luxurious. Simply buy a movie ticket, treat them to some popcorn (or your healthy choice of snacks), and sit back and relax while watching fantastic movies with lessons your kids will surely remember.
If you’re looking to line up must-watch films this year, make sure these upcoming kid-friendly movies are on the list.
#1 Sonic the Hedgehog
Meet Sonic, the world’s most well-known hedgehog, whose claim to fame includes his appearances in video games and cartoons. Now, he gets to star in a live-action film where he lands on Earth full of energy, able to run at around 800 mph. He’s having quite the fun life until villain Dr. Robotnik, played by Jim Carrey, sets out to capture him. With the help of his friend Tom Wachowski, a Sheriff of Green Hills, Montana, he might just outrun Dr. Robotnik!
#2 The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run
When his pet Gary went missing, Spongebob had no idea what to do and thought it was “snailnapped.” If your little one is a fan of Spongebob, make sure you don’t miss this latest film installation. In this adventure to find Gary, your child will be reunited with old favourites, get to know new characters, and discover new places other than Bikini Bottom. There’s a treat for adults watching along too with Keanu Reeves’ special appearance (because you know, who can better help you find a pet than John Wick himself?). The film will be shown in both 2D and 3D to give viewers a truly immersive experience.
From the creators of Toy Story and The Incredibles, Disney & Pixar once again bring a magical film that will leave kids in awe. Elf brothers Ian and Barley, played by Avengers stars Tom Holland and Chris Pratt respectively, embark on a quest to unlock a spell that will bring their dad back to life for just one day—only to be faced with one challenge after another. This spellbinding film will teach your kids lessons on brotherhood and the importance of family.
Perfect for young girls, this live-action film is a remake of the story of one of Disney’s beloved princesses, Mulan. When Mulan’s father, a respected warrior, fell ill, she had to take the bold step of disguising herself as a man to join the Imperial Army. Watch Mulan prove that women can fight as hard as men even in the face of China’s northern invaders. This movie will teach your child courage and selflessness by breaking down the boundaries that used to determine what a woman can and cannot do.
What does it truly mean to have a soul? Disney & Pixar’s upcoming film Soul tells the story of struggling musician, Joe, who’s trying to make it big in the Big Apple. An unfortunate event takes him to a fantastical place filled with souls. He then meets the cynicial soul 22. Together, they discover some of life’s biggest lessons as Joe struggles to find his way back to New York City, and to life, while he still has time. If your child is a fan of Inside Out, Soul may just be just as heartwarming.
