I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely excited to see many of the things that Disney has to offer in 2017! As a big Beauty and the Beast fan, of course that is at the top of my list. But I’m also looking forward to seeing what Pixar does with Coco, as well as the 8th episode of Star Wars.
I do find it interesting that there are not nearly as many movies being released this year as there were in 2016. Last year we had 12 on the slate. This year we’re looking at 8. And since we saw two movies from the Walt Disney Animation Studios last year (Zootopia and Moana), there won’t be one in 2017. So for animation fans, we have to look forward to Gigantic in 2018!
Let’s take a look at the movies coming out this year:
Beauty and the Beast – live action (March 17th, 2017)
Born in China (April 21st, 2017)
A documentary that looks at the wildlife in China, including endangered animals.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell no Tales (May 26th, 2017)

Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea including him. Capt. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas.
Cars 3 (June 16th, 2017)
Thor: Ragnarok (November 3rd, 2017)
Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth) finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), his former ally and fellow Avenger.
