Start saving those coins for movie tickets and popcorn because just like in last year’s blog post I shared the top films that were coming out, well, this year I’m sharing the new releases for this year. Because let’s be serious- who wants to be left out?
Toy Story 4 – June 21, 2019
I gave the plot away in my last blog post, but just in case you didn’t read it– here some more back story than the original blog post–
In “Toy Story 4,” when Bonnie finds herself all alone during kindergarten orientation,Woody just has to help—even if it means digging through a trash can to retrieve a few art supplies for his kid. The effort is a resounding success, but when Bonnie’s beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky, declares himself trash and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. “Forky is like a newborn,” says producer Mark Nielsen. “He doesn’t know anything about life—he doesn’t even understand why he’s alive or what a toy even is. He makes Woody
vocalize what it means to be a toy.”
Woody, Forky and the rest of the gang accompany Bonnie on her family’s road trip excursion. That leads Woody to an unexpected reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep. “Bo Peep is just such a great character,” says screenwriter Stephany Folsom. “She was part of a baby’s lamp in Andy’s sister’s room, so she was given away a long time ago. Life was different for Bo, but she didn’t just sit around. She long ago decided to make the best of her situation, pick herself up by her bootstraps and stand on her own two porcelain feet.”
Women empowerment! I see what you’re doing Disney!!!
Lion King – July 19, 2019
Disney’s “The Lion King”, directed by Jon Favreau, journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile.
With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his. The all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon. Utilizing pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring treasured characters to life in a whole new way.
Now, the next two films aren’t out until we near the end of the year so, yes, keep an eye out, but there isn’t much information on the plot going on.
Maleficent: Mistress of Evil – October 18, 2019
A fantasy adventure that picks up several years after “Maleficent,” in which audiences learned of the events that hardened the heart of Disney’s most notorious villain. Due to that it drove her to curse a baby Princess Aurora. “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and the soon to be Queen, as they form new alliances and face new adversaries in their struggle to protect the moors and the magical creatures that reside within.
