2018 could be the year of Animated movies with some big movies set to hit our screens. In this article we take a look at 8 films we cannot wait to see next year.
Finally, we are set to see the sequel of one of the most famous animated movies. The Incredibles 2 is set to hit cinemas in June 2018, with Samuel L. Jackson amongst the stars featuring. The film has been produced by a combination of Pixar and Walt Disney Studios. Will it manage to reach the heights of the first film?
Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a travelling circus, which they reinvent – Madagascar style. As always, Ben Stiller is amongst the stars to feature in this franchise.
A production by Academy Award-winning director Nick Park and Aardman, the creators of ‘Wallace & Gromit’ and ‘Shaun the Sheep’. The film is shot in Aardman’s distinctive style and will take viewers on a prehistoric adventure via the use of comedy. Take a look at the teaser above.
UK viewers will be able to see Paddington in November, with the 10 of November it’s planned release date. US viewers will have to wait until January 2018. I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait though, the trailer looks good, and the predecessor was a memorable animated comedy.
Unlike the previous mix of real-life and CG Animation, this time around Garfield will be a fully animated movie, with Alcon Entertainment securing exclusive rights for the movie in 2016. The anticipated release date is sometime in 2018 – it’ll be interesting to see how successful this becomes. Alcon said it plans to build a franchise of animated Garfield films.
“I’ve been so impressed with the quality of animation and storytelling coming out of Hollywood of late,” Jim Davis (the creator of Garfield) said in a statement. “I can’t wait to get into production with the terrific team Alcon has assembled.”
Need we say more? Watch the trailer above. This trailer has had a mixed reaction, to say the least, with James Corden the voice of Peter Rabbit.
In 2015 we heard the news that Stuart Little was set for a 2018 remake, but it’s all gone a little quiet since then. We sincerely hope that it’s still on track to be released in the next year!
