Family Movies We’re Excited to See in 2015

Next year is the year of superheroes, fairy tales, and then some!

JANUARY
Annie 
This movie is a re-telling of the classic musical story in a modern setting about an orphaned girl whom a mayoral candidate, as a gimmick for his election campaign, took in his home. It stars Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild), Jamie Foxx (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Cameron Diaz (Charlie’s Angels movies). There will be lots of singing for sure!
Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb
The magic of the museum that brings to life its displays every midnight is apparently wearing off, so the gang goes to London to find answers. This movie is also one of the movies that Robin Williams wrapped up before his unexpected demise. We’re excited to see the comic legend bring laughter to his audience one last time.
Into the Woods
A modern twist to the Brothers Grimm fairy tales, this story revolves around the tales of Cinderella, the Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, a baker and his wife, and of course a witch. The musical play version had great reviews, so we’re excited about this one. And no other than the award-winning actress Meryl Streep plays the witch. ‘Nuff said.

FEBRUARY
The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
Bikini Bottom’s famous yellow sponge is on the surface and in our “real” world! He’s out to search for the secret recipe that will save the underwater town from the pirate Burger-Beard. The rest of the Bikini Bottom gang joins in the fray for another riotous movie.

MARCH
 
Cinderella
The new live-action retelling of this classic fairy tale stays true to the original story, complete with evil stepsisters, helpful mice, a pumpkin carriage, Prince Charming, and the glass slippers, so it’s really like seeing the fairy tale characters come alive before your eyes! Lily James (Downton Abbey) headlines the cast as Ella, with Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter as the evil stepmother and fairy godmother, respectively.

Home
An animated feature from Dreamworks, Home is about an alien named Oh and a human girl named Tip taking a road trip of a lifetime. In their world, Earth is being taken over by the Oh’s alien race Boov, who are looking for a new place to call home. Sounds like a lot of out-of-this-world fun is about to unfold.

APRIL
The Avengers: Age of Ultron
The epic follow-up to one of the most successful superhero movies of today, The Avengers: Age of Ultron takes our superhero crew to battle a highly powerful villain. This is also the film where characters Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be introduced. Judging by the trailer, it really packs more challenges for The Avengers. Will they be victorious? Let’s watch and find out.

MAY
Pitch Perfect 2 
They’re back, pitches! The musical comedy film featuring the college a capella groups the Barden Bellas and The Treblemakers are about to take on the global stage. Stars Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Ester Dean, and Skylar Astin are back for another aca-awesome movie.

Tomorrowland
From the director of The Incredibles and Ratatouille, Tomorrowland is a film about former boy-genius inventor and an optimistic and curious teenager embarking on a dangerous mission to discover secrets of the mysterious place called Tomorrowland — and whatever they do in Tomorrowland has consequences on the real world.

JUNE
B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations
The super classified agency BOO (Bureau of Otherworldly Operations) is dedicated to protect humans from evil hauntings. How do they do that, you ask? It’s because the agents are ghosts themselves — and one of them discovered a plot to destroy the agency. Sounds like RIPD (Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges), only it’s animated.

Jurassic World
Do you remember how watching Jurassic Park got you all scared and screaming? Well, it looks like this new film, which is set to bring life back to the franchise will do just that and more. Twenty-two years after the first movie was released, everything about the park is well, until scientists create a new hybrid dino. Not really a good idea, but we sure want to find out how that plays out.

Inside Out
Disney-Pixar’s animation studios had the world waiting for almost two years for another full-length film (the last one was Monsters University in 2013). This fresh offering takes the audience inside the head of a girl named Riley, who recently moved houses. Inside her head we meet Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust, and Sadness—her emotions come to life! We simply can’t wait.

JULY
Minions
The adorable Minions of Despicable Me are back with their own movie. It starts by telling when, where, and how the Minions evolve through time, serving every evil master that comes their way … until they bump into you know who. And we all know what happens next. Pa-poi? Pa-poi.

Pan 
Did you ever wonder where Peter Pan came from? This origin movie details it out for you. Join Peter, Tiger Lily, a young Captain Hook, and the pirate Blackbeard in Neverland to find out! We’re also amazed at how colorful Neverland looked like in the trailer, and we just want to see more.

Ant-Man
A new Marvel superhero is headed to the big screen. Ant-Man is the story of a scientist with a super-suit that gives him the ability to shrink, on top of his super strength. For older kids who love superheroes, Ant-Man to widen their superhero world.

Pixels
This 3D live-action/computer-animated comedy revolves around the plot where aliens attack the earth after misinterpreting video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war. We’re curious about how nostalgic parents would get watching this one.

Goosebumps
If you’re in for some spooky treat, Goosebumps is your movie. Join the duo of a young kid and the niece of young-adult horror author RL. Stine put down the writer’s imaginary demons, as they are set free in their town.

SEPTEMBER
Hotel Transylvania 2
We’ve known Dracula, owner of the high-end monsters-only resort, to be quite the old-fashioned vampire. But what happens when an even older-fashioned vampire visits the hotel? Ancient vampire Vlad stirs things up at Hotel Transylvania 2.

OCTOBER

The classic story from Disney about an orphan boy raised in the jungle by a pack of wolves, a bear and a black panther is getting its latest animated version next year, with the voices being done by new mom Scarlett Johansson, Bill Murray, Idris Elba, and Christopher Walken.

Jem and The Holograms
This is probably another throwback movie for moms who grew up watching the Jem and the Holograms cartoon show. Depending on its story, which we do not know yet, this could also be a hit movie young girls would like to watch.

The Little Prince
The recently released international trailer showed us how they brought life to this classic children’s book—literally. It looks like The Little Prince’s story will be told within a story about a girl who discovers the book’s pages. Oh, and did we mention the animation is just absolutely perfect? You’ll definitely want to replay the trailer a few times—even if you don’t understand French.

NOVEMBER
Peanuts 
From comic strip to carton show to CGI animated movie, the adorable dog Snoopy and Woodpecker is out for an adventure in daydreaming land as always. Also making their big-screen debuts are Charlie Brown and the whole Peanuts gang, in a quest to find something they need.

The Good Dinosaur
This animated movie revolves around Arlo, a 70-foot-tall teenage Apatosaurus, who befriends a young human boy named Spot. Other than that, we know nothing except that it’s from Pixar, so jot this film down in your must-watch list.

DECEMBER
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
The much awaited seventh installment to the Star Wars saga has not revealed a lot about its plot or characters, but we know for sure that Luke, Leia, and Han Solo will be back, and of course, robots R2D2 and C3PO. It’s set 30 years after The Return of The Jedi, and director J.J. Abrams promises awesome-ness when we see the Force awaken.

Kung Fu Panda 3
Po will be continuing his legendary adventures together with Master Shifu and the Furious Five, Masters Tigress, Monkey, Viper, Mantis, and Crane. This time he will battle two foes: a supernatural one and one close to home. Hint: Remember how at the end of the last movie his parents were revealed?
