And one studio to rule them all. Disney-Pixar, Disney Animation Studios, Disney Live-Action, Marvel and Lucasfilms all call the ‘House of Mouse’ home and that means bigger and better Movies for fans. Whether you’re a fan of Sci-Fi or Comic Book Movies or good old animation, Disney has you covered in 2017.
First out of the gate before the New Year is the hotly anticipated Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Opening on December 18th, the first stand-alone Star Wars Movie ells the story of how the Rebellion obtained the plans to the Death Star.
This tale as old as time is based on an Animated Movie as old as 1991. On March 17th prepare to be transported to an enchanted castle where the furniture sings and dishes dance. The brand new trailer that just dropped today will have fans counting down the day until the new live-action Beauty and the Beast finally opens. The Beast’s voice sounds so much like the original animated one you’ll need to watch the Trailer multiple times to make sure it’s really Dan Stevens talking to Emma Watson’s Belle.
Our next Movie features an all-star cast, an awesome soundtrack, and an adorable sapling named Groot. This May 5th strap in as Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 finds our heroes trying to track down the truth behind Star Lord’s mysterious father and getting up to plenty of trouble along the way.
Nobody does Disney adventure like Captain Jack Sparrow. On May 26 visit with the Captain and his crew as they take on professional villain Javier Bardem in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
Since we’re talking sequels you’d better fasten your seat belts for Pixar’s Cars 3 which will open on June 16th. Lightning McQueen is back in an all new adventure that children are sure to enjoy.
If you missed the long-haired Norse god when his friends were busy having an all-out civil war, then you will definitely be excited for Thor: Ragnarök when it opens on November 3rd. Featuring Thor, Hulk, Loki and even Doctor Strange the latest addition to the MCU is a must-see movie for Marvel fans everywhere.
On November 22nd Pixar returns to the multiplex with an original story called Coco. Not much is known about this Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina-directed Feature except for this single drawing. That said, it’s Pixar on the American Thanksgiving long weekend so it’s bound to be amazing.
The year wraps up with a Movie that doesn’t even have an official title yet: Star Wars VIII. The Rian Johnson-directed Film is still filming but is due in theatres on December 15th. Details about the plot are a closely held secret but we here at MrWillWong.com can exclusively tell you that…
