Disney Movies To Put On Your Calendar!

Where would we be without Magical Disney movies to look forward to? My calendar is certainly full, and after reading this blog, I'm sure yours will be, too! There's tons of new stuff hitting the theaters over the next year that we're sure you won't want to miss! Check out this list of upcoming Disney flicks so you can plan for a Magical time!

We'll go monthly in chronological order to make things easier on you and your schedule, starting with the movie that none of us can wait any longer for, Christopher Robin!

Winnie the Pooh was definitely a part of my childhood, and I'm sure he was a part of yours, too! In fact, I was obsessed particular episode of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh in which the infamous, "The Rain Rain Rain" is sung - it was my absolute favorite video to watch! I can't wait to see what Disney has in store for us with this Live-Action retelling of the story of the Hundred Acre Wood. It's going to be a truly Magical experience!

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (November 2nd, 2018)
Although I wouldn't consider myself a passionate fan of the story of the Nutcracker, I played a Candy Cane in my elementary school production of the play, so you could call me an expert...Ahem...maybe not, but still! It is a great story, and it's a movie that Disney will have the creative freedom to expand upon! While I'm unsure about the plot and what it will entail, I cannot wait to see what the Four Realms are like!

Ralph Breaks the Internet (November 21st, 2018)
Wreck-It-Ralph was an instant classic, featuring some of Hollywood's funniest actors and actresses, that also managed to be an adorable and inspiring story! The second installment promises to be just as adventurous as the first, if not even more adventurous! Recently released screen captures of moments in the movie showcase a scene in which Venellope meets all of the Disney Princesses in one room. What will come of their meeting? We'll find out soon!

Mary Poppins Returns (December 19th, 2018)

Few movies have ever been as iconic as the first edition of Mary Poppins. I've only had the privilege of seeing it a few times over the course of my life, but it certainly made an impact on me! I'm very excited to see what Disney does with this remake; the trailer looks amazing, but it's also really hard to tell what the plot will look like! Emily Blunt and Lin Manuel Miranda appear to be integral parts of the film, obviously Emily Blunt is playing Mary Poppins, but I very much look forward to their adventures with the kids!

Dumbo (March 29th, 2019)Much like the first movie, the live-action edition of Dumbo promises to be quite the tear-jerker. I'm certain that, in part, it's just because Dumbo is just such an adorable little elephant, but out of all of the early Disney stories, this seems to be the one that touches my heart the most. I'm really excited to see how it compares to the first since Disney has totally nailed the last few live-action remakes. Also, I just can't wait to see Danny DeVito in the circus.

Aladdin (May 24th, 2019)Back-to-back live-action remakes are quite the task, but if anyone is up for it, it's the Magical folks at Disney! Aladdin is staged to be a retelling of the original hit film, with some big name actors on the bill. Will Smith is set to play the Genie, and Naomi Scott will be the beloved Princess Jasmine. While there isn't even a trailer available at this time, I'd be willing to bet Aladdin is going to be everything we could hope for!

Toy Story 4 (June 21st, 2019)
The first Toy Story film not directed by John Lasseter, Toy Story 4 is reportedly the story of Woody and Bo Peep's love! Josh Cooley will be the leader in the clubhouse this time around (Director), while Tom Hanks back as Woody! Several franchises have gone a little too far with sequels in the past, but personally, I need another Toy Story movie in my life. Don't you?!

The Lion King (July 19th, 2019)
I just got done writing about Toy Story when I realized we have another live-action remake in the works. One by the name of The Lion King, and one that I am most excited for. The Lion King was easily my favorite movie when I was a little kid, and I cannot wait to see what Jon Favreau has in store for us. It's been reported, and Tweeted about extensively, that the first footage of the film (released at the D23 Expo) was so good the audience gave a standing ovation! Some even cried...

If the opening scene was enough to bring tears to the eyes of film critics, I cannot imagine what I'll be thinking when I see it for the first time!

Wow! What a list! This doesn't even bring us through the end of 2019, but it runs us up to the end of the next 365 days. I like to plan my movie-going experience, don't get me wrong, but the minute I start thinking about August of 2019 is the minute I forget what I'm supposed to be doing tomorrow! We hope you enjoyed today's blog! See you next week!

Stay Magical!
