Disney live-action remakes, sequels aplenty and animated classics are hitting the silver screen this year!

A trip to the cinema is one of the best ways to spend a rainy day indoors. Two hours sitting in the dark with fully entertained kids? A classic. And we’re more than happy with the upcoming movies hitting the cinema this year. From animated sequels to Disney classics and of course, superhero action must-sees, we’ve put together the fam-friendly movies to see with kids this year.

There are only two moods for The Lego Movie: Lucy and Emmet.

So much love for Brie as Captain Marvel!

We’re always up for more female superheroes, especially when the uber fab Brie Larson is involved! Captain Marvel is the next hero in the Marvel Universe to hit the silver screen so you better brush up on your superhero knowledge before you head to the cinema.

Dumbo is the sweetest little elephant ever.

Tim Burton is the first this year to get a Disney remake into movie theatres. Dumbo, the most adorable little elephant that ever there was, is soaring to new heights this March. The live action remake features two lovely children who take care of Dumbo, as well as a sinister circus plot that separates the baby elephant and his mother (nooo). Our advice? Bring tissues.
Release date: 28 March 2019

Avengers: Endgame

Not exactly a cheery movie but we’ve got our fingers crossed that some of our faves haven’t really perished.

Following the incredibly shocking and emotionally draining Avengers: Infinity War, things are looking pretty grim for the heroes. We’re not sure how they’re going to bring the series to a conclusion but we’re definitely looking forward to finding out in Avengers: Endgame. And seeing more of Chris Hemsworth.
Release date: 24 April 2019

Get ready for more Arabian nights in this live-action remake of Aladdin.

The second live-action Disney movie of the year is Aladdin. It looks like it’s staying true to the original movie but not much is known about it yet. If you’re still on the fence about whether to see this or not, Will Smith is in it and he plays Genie. ‘Nuff said.

Prepare to laugh out loud at the next Toy Story!

Woody and the gang are hitting the road in the fourth installment of Pixar’s Toy Story. And it seems like a new toy called Forky, a plastic fork turned into a toy, is joining them for the ride. Looks like someone hasn’t ditched the disposables. This one can’t come soon enough if you ask us!
Release date: 20 June 2019

Spider-Man: Far From Home


Does a new Spider-Man movie mean that Peter Parker DID survive the Infinity War?

Tom Holland is swinging by this summer for Spider-Man: Far From Home. The new movie is set in Europe where he and his friends battle a villain named Mysterio, played by popular mum-crush, Jake Gyllenhaal.
Release date: 5 July 2019

The Lion King

The third Disney classic remake, The Lion King (pictured top) is roaring to the cinemas in July, and we can’t wait! Following Simba the lion cub, we’re pretty sure this is going to be about as warm and fuzzy as it gets.

Frozen 2

movies to see with the kids in 2019

There’s no need to Let It Go: Frozen is coming back with a sequel.

Just as the fuss died down and your daughter finally stopped insisting on visiting the supermarket dressed as Elsa from Frozen, it’s back. And probably with that song. We predict lots of happy little ones as Elsa, Anna, Kristoff and Olaf embark on a new adventure to discover the history behind Arendale. If you are still trying to get the tunes from the first movie out of your head, you’ll just have to let it go…
Release date: 27 November 2019

What else is on?

There’s lots more films to look forward to this year and lots of them are sequels. There’s not much we know about these movies yet, but we’re expecting a sequel to Kingsman, Angry Birds and the conclusion of the Skywalker saga in Star Wars: Episode IX. Mums should definitely look forward to Men In Black: International for some Chris Hemsworth gun-touting suit-wearing action alongside the awesome Rebecca Ferguson. But we’re not holding our breath for Pokemon Detective, and its lack of 2D animation cuteness (Pikachu is voiced by Ryan Reynolds and we have mixed feelings about that). 

Check back folks as more news of the big movies is released as we’ll be updating regularly. Popcorn at the ready!
