The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part
Release date: 19 February
I’m hoping to go to see this with my master builder uncle, Michael! In this instalment, Lucy, Batman, Princess Unikitty and friends are kidnapped and it’s up to Emmet to make everything awesome again.
Release date: 29 March
I’m hoping the 2019 remake of this Disney classic is slightly less brutal than the original – I’ve never been able to see past the first 15 minutes through my tears! This live action version is directed by Tim Burton and stars Colin Farrell as the circus elephant caretaker.
Release date: 12 April
Imaginative little girl June spends her time dreaming up an elaborate amusement park – only to find it in the real world when she grows up. Sounds pretty awesome!
Pokemon Detective Pikachu
Release date: 11 May
If the trailer is anything to go by, this first ever live-action Pokemon film is going to be massive. The trailer became an overnight sensation – viewed more than 10 million times in one night on YouTube alone. Why? Maybe because the Pokemon have real-looking fur and skin, or maybe because Pikachu now talks (beyond his usual “pika-pika! Chuu!”)
Release date: 24 May
Did you know I was in a school play at Christmas called Ali Baba and the Bongo Bandits? I played Bongo and it was so much fun! So, as an expert at all things Ali Baba, I’ll be paying extra attention to Disney’s remake of the tale and look forward to Will Smith as a cheeky genie.
Toy Story 4
Release date: 21 June
I’m not sure I can take the emotional rollercoaster that the next instalment has in store for Andy’s toys – I’m still not over Toy Story 2. But I’ll have to be brave because I can’t leave those toys all alone on the big screen… *sob*
The Lion King
Release date: 19 July
I wasn’t sure how Disney could improve on the original until I heard that none other than Beyonce is the voice of Nala…
The Addams Family
Release date: 11 October
Apparently, this animated Addams movie is closer to the original New Yorker comics than previous classics: The Addams Family and Addams Family Values.
Sonic the Hedgehog
Release date: 15 November
Sonic finally gets his own movie. Where better than the big screen for his battle against the evil Dr Robotnik, played by my all-time favourite comedian Jim Carrey?
Release date: 27 November
Okay Disney fans, don’t think any less of me, but I am so over Frozen. I think I just saw the original movie one too many times and hugged one too many Elsas at children’s parties. That said, I can’t miss out on the sequel…
