Just like the last, 2017 seems to be another year filled with animated movies that will entertain both kids and adults alike. These films have in the past proved to be quite the crowd-pullers and raked in the bucks. Last year saw Finding Dory, The Jungle Book, Pete's Dragon, Zootopia and many more films winning hearts. It’s little wonder Hollywood keeps making more of animated films. And let’s face it, we might have grown up, but we still enjoy love being awed by some kickass animation packed into an entertaining movie.
Animation has now developed from being regarded as being cheap comedy for children to a genre having complex stories with fleshed-out plots and well-rounded characters. We bring you the most promising animated movies that you can look forward to watching in theaters this year.
With the disappointment that was the last Cars movie, it’s surprising that there’s another one in the pipeline. But here it is, and this time it is not parading as a cheerful movie or riding on the heels of its previous release. It’s dark, and it’s exciting.
Alec Baldwin voices the Boss Baby that leads not only the other babies but also bosses his elder brother around. Will he be able to unite the babies and get the love back from puppies?
Emojis also have… feelings? You never knew you wanted it, but Hollywood knew that you needed to see a movie about walking, talking emojis. If you've ever used emojis, you're obligated to watch this.
A The Lego Movie spin-off, Batman is back with his solo movie. This Lego movie is going to be yet another laugh-fest. It has an attention-seeking Joker who really wants to be Batman’s enemy, a Robin that gets on Batman’s nerve and the wise advice-dispensing butler, Alfred.
Gru and Lucy are enjoying domestic bliss, when a new villain, Balthazaar Blatt comes on the scene. The girls are also back, although we’ve only heard them mentioned by Gru, and of course, there are the minions.
Smurfette and her friends go on a mission to find the lost village. But as it turns out, they are not the only ones who are looking for it. It's going to be an adventurous quest you can't miss.
