Disneynature’s newest True Life Adventure film is sure to be equally epic and adorable with plenty of wildlife and the narration of the one and only John Krasinski. The film follows the stories of three animal families through the wilds of China and we’ll be sure to take in every moment of the journey.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

The Guardians of the Galaxy are coming back for new adventures! The teaser trailer had us so pumped we couldn’t contain our excitement. We’ll be listening to Star-Lord’s ’80s music on repeat until further notice. Also: Baby Groot is going to be the cutest!
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

If you haven’t seen the teaser trailer for the newest Pirates of the Caribbean tale, you need to watch it ASAP. In it, you’ll get a look at Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), a ghost sailor who is after Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). Can Captain Jack Sparrow find the legendary Trident of Poseidon to save himself from the ghost sailors? We’ll find out in May!

We know from the teaser trailer that everything will change in Cars 3. We can’t wait to see what happens when Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) seeks the help of a young race technician named Cruz Ramirez (voice of Cristela Alonzo) to prove that #95 isn’t through yet. Sign us up for a first row seat in this race!

We were thrilled to learn about the cast of Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok, including of course Chris Hemsworth as the mighty Thor and Tom Hiddleston as Loki. The story will revolve around Thor in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop the destruction of his home world. However, first he must go up against his fellow Avenger, the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo)! We’re all sure to be in for an epic journey.
November 22, 2017
If the gorgeous concept art that we’ve seen for Coco is any indication, we’re in for a breathtakingly beautiful story. Revolving around aspiring musician Miguel (voice of newcomer Anthony Gonzalez), we’ll be taken on his journey through the Land of the Dead as he searches for the real story behind his family’s history.
Star Wars: Episode VIII
December 15, 2017
Last year, we fell in love with Rey, BB-8, and Finn, and can’t wait to see where their journey leads them next. We will be counting the days until we can see this new Star Wars adventure come to life!
Magic Camp, a comedy starring Jeffrey Tambor, Adam Devine, and Gillian Jacobs, tells the story of—you guessed it—a camp for magicians! Devine stars as a former camper and failing magician who returns to the camp to be a counselor, facing up to a rival once and for all.
