If you thought The LEGO Batman Movie was the only theatrical LEGO movie we’d be getting this year, you thought wrong! On September 22, 2017, The LEGO Ninjago Movie will be hitting theaters. The film features the voice talents of Dave Franco, Michael Peña, Fred Armisen, Jackie Chan, Justin Theroux, Olivia Munn, etc. Check out the recently-released trailer below:
I personally find the trailer and movie to be very…….okay-ish, leaning on boring. I mean, it feels more like a direct-to-DVD kinda film, rather than a theatrical release. And having to ride the coattails of The LEGO Batman Movie, I wonder how well this film will do in the box office. Let me know what you thought in the comments below!
As the year comes to a close, it comes time again to prepare ourselves for the animated films being released next year! So read on below to find a list of the theatrical animated films set to be released in 2017! Like usual, I’m only listing the ones that have confirmed US release dates at the moment, hence this list is mostly composed of films from the major animation studios. Enjoy!
So, the Academy has announced that 20 films are qualified as contenders to be nominated for the Best Animated Feature Academy Award in the upcoming 87th Academy Awards ceremony. Due to there being 20, 5 of these films will actually make the nominations list. Which 5 do you think should make the list?
Big Hero 6
The Book of Life
Henry and Me
The Hero of Color City
How to Train Your Dragon 2
Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart
Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return
The LEGO Movie
Minuscule – Valley of the Lost Ants
Mr. Peabody and Sherman
Penguins of Madagascar
The Pirate Fairy
Planes: Fire and Rescue
Rocks in My Pockets
Song of the Sea
The Tale of the Princess Kaguya
My picks are Big Hero 6, The LEGO Movie, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart, and Song of the Sea.
Seems like LEGO is still as popular as ever! “The LEGO Movie” won the weekend US/Canada box office with a grand opening of $69 million! The film has just been getting great reviews after great reviews! I haven’t seen the film yet, but I want to, although I’m skeptical about the voice acting (that of Chris Pratt and Elizabeth Banks, especially).
Have you seen it? If so, how was it? If not, do you plan to see it? Lemme know in the comments!
Well, 2013 is about to come to an end, so you know what that means!
No, it means that I’m going on vacation!
Yep, I’m gonna be gone for about a week, so I thought that I should leave you all with something before I go. And what better thing to leave you with than a preview of what next year has to offer in animated films!
So sit back and relax while we take a look at the animated full-length theatrical films that shall be released next year complete with synopses (if available), trailers/posters (if available), and American release dates (if available). I hope you all enjoy! Continue reading “Upcoming Animated Films in 2014”
