Disney is on a roll this year! Unexpected hits, genius live action adaptations and old resurrected classics - it’s already given us it all. Well, who’s complaining? And, we are certainly game for more Disney magic. We can’t say we don’t love them tugging at heartstrings.

The latest film to join Disney’s hit brigade is Pete’s Dragon - another great example of a film oozing warmth and full of heart and friendship values,  and it opens this weekend at the theaters. The film about a young orphaned boy, Pete, and his adventures with his dragon friend Elliot, is already is making some noise at the box office.

The trailer alone has been giving us a lot of feels - it’s like Tarzan and How To Train Your Dragon all rolled into one, and there is just something about endearing friendships that we can’t seem to get over, right. 

 

Fast forward to the rest of 2016 - Disney has lined up a host of other movie releases that is well, going to keep us very very busy.

 

Queen of Katwe 

The next Disney offering is going to be quite a different one from its usual fare - ad that is not the only reason we are looking forward to it. It’s got a lot of girl power, the rising of an underdog protagonist and sports, well, if chess is considered one. And, of course Lupita Nyong’o in this tale of a young girl from Uganda who trains to become a chess champion. 

 

Doctor Strange

Who isn’t waiting for Benedict Cumberbatch to return to the screen? And, that too when he’s playing a superhero. We are just as excited about this as we are about the new season of Sherlock coming this December.

Disney teams up with Marvel to bring us a film about a Doctor who gets trained by a sorcerer to become the protector of the world against evil. Now, that’s not something we are going to miss! 

 

Moana 

Disney brings what Disney does best-  the next big animation film from the studios is scheduled for a release soon, and could we be more stoked about it. We are going to be taken right down to Hawaii for this one, with a heroine who stands for diversity, and a befallen demi-god (in the voice of Dwayne Johnson), a whole lot of sea adventures and more. Seriously, what’s not to love? 

 

Rogue One - A Star Wars Story 

And then we have Disney signing off in style for the year (only to up its game with a whole lot of new movies next year), with a Star Wars spin off.

Starring Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen and Riz Ahmed, this one promises to be our new favorite saga.
