Who’s ready to go to the movies? Disney has a lot of exciting titles coming out in 2018, and I’m excited to see most of them. In fact, I’d say there’s probably only 2 or 3 on this list that I won’t end up seeing in theaters.
Black Panther (February 16th)
We first saw him in Captain America: Civil War, but now Black Panther is back with his own film.
A Wrinkle in Time (March 9th)
I loved this book growing up, and as a children’s librarian I’m excited to see it turned into a Disney movie. I’m already planning a book discussion for my middle school kids before they see the film.
Dolphins (April 20th)
One of they DisneyNature films, this documentary will focus on dolphins. While it’s not a huge audience appeal to see a nature documentary like the other films on this list, they’re always very well done.
Avengers: Infinity War (May 4th)
If you’re a fan of the Marvel films (and you should be!) this is a must-see. The Avengers join forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Solo: A Star Wars Story (May 25th)
It’s the early years of Han Solo, though we don’t have a ton of information about how that will go yet.
The Incredibles 2 (June 15th)
People have been clamoring for a sequel to the Incredibles since the first one came out, and now this one will pick up where the last one left off. Baby Jack-Jack has some new powers to share.
Ant-Man and the Wasp (July 6th)
Ant-Man may be my second favorite superhero after Captain America, so I’m excited for this sequel. Plus a kickass female will get to join him on his adventures.
Christopher Robin movie (August 3rd)
I’ve heard so little about this I’m not really sure what to expect. I do love Winnie the Pooh, though the concept is unusual: it’s a live action film of Christopher Robin all grown up. Ewan McGregor will play the adult Christopher Robin.
The Nutcracker and the 4 Realms (November 2nd)
The description for this one is “A dark take on the E.T.A. Hoffmann tale, Clara (Mackenzie Foy) sets off into a magical world to fetch a lost key that will unlock a box from her mother. On her adventure, Clara winds up caught in a struggle to bring peace to three different realms.” Umm, I’m not sure what to think.
Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 (November 21st)
Wreck-It Ralph is back, and this time the video game character discovers the internet. I’m super excited for this one. We LOVED the first one, and I got to see a sneak peek at D23 which had me laughing non-stop.
Mary Poppins Returns (December 25th)
Mary Poppins is such a wonderful movie, so it will be hard to see if a sequel can live up to it. But with a strong character and Emily Blunt, I think it has a very good chance.
