Directed by Tim Burton, Dumbo is Disney’s re-telling of the story of an elephant ridiculed for his big ears. Ears he’s in fact able to use as wings and fly.

Colin Farrell, Eva Green, Michael Keaton and Danny DeVito star…

To my surprise his trailer didn’t move me. It is only a teaser so there’s time. I do remember the Dumbo story though only vaguely. Perhaps the next Dumbo trailer will have me more excited, the way the Cinderella (2015 ) trailer did.

Dumbo Release Dates: March 29th, 2019 (US & UK)…

Directed by Silas Howard, A Kid Like Jake stars Claire Danes, Jim parsons, Octavia Spencer and Priyana Chopra.

Parsons and Danes play a Brooklyn based couple whose four-year-old son’s preschool director points out that his gender-nonconforming play may be more than just a phase…

The subject matter is so very interesting and is a great reminder of why I love movies and the often useful stories they tell.

Besides the great cast and promising story, I’m really looking forward to the beautiful images of a well lit New York City, a place I always miss.

During the German air raid bombings of Belfast in 1941, young Tom and his misfit friends fought to save ‘Buster’ a baby elephant at Belfast Zoo.

Written and directed by Colin McIvor, Zoo is based on a true story and stars Art Parkinson, Toby Jones, Penelope Wilton, Ian McElhinney…

This one is for big elephant (my favourite grey creature) fans. I also really want to know which of the elephants in this movie are CGI, if not all.

From David Yates (director of several Harry Potter films and the last Fantastic Beasts movie – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016), Eddie Redmayne is back for Fantastic Beasts 2 – The Crimes of Grindenwald.

Redmayne is joined by Jude Law, Ezra Miller, Johnny Depp, Katherine Waterston, Colin Farell and others for more ‘wandtastic’ adventures as Newt Scamander…

The stunning visuals – including costume design, that’s why I’m in. I also can’t wait to see what Johny Depp’s character gets up to.

I have a feeling that this movie is going to be a constant reminder for of the reason why movies are my absolute favourite. They are, when done wonderfully, a true perfect amalgamation of all the arts.

The Grinch stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the grumpy Christmas hating so and so who plans to ruin Christmas for all residents of the village of Whoville.

Directed by Yarrow Cheney and Scott Mosier, this looks to be a remake of How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) which starred Jim Carey…

I’ll tune in to this for comparison purposes. I want to find out how The Grinch will fair against How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Another reason to watch is the appeal of ‘grumpy but cute.’ The Grinch is certainly grumpy. He’s also absolutely cute. The final reason to watch would be the bass in Cumberbatch’s voice.

The Grinch Release Dates: November 9th, 2018 (US & UK)…

Director Rob Marshall’s Mary Poppins Returns is set in 1930s depression-era London. In the follow-up to the 1964 family movie, both Jane and Michael Banks are grown up and Michael has three children. After the family suffer a terrible loss, Mary Poppins turns up to show them the joy and wonder that’s been missing from their lives.

Emily Blunt, Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Emily Mortimer star…

For a moment I thought this teaser trailer wasn’t going to show Blunt as Poppins at all. I’m looking forward to seeing what she does with the role. Her accent sounds a little unlike what I expected but it’s early days yet.

So far, I’m absolutely loving the coats in this trailer, especially that green beauty at 1:04!

Mary Poppins Returns Release Dates: December 21st, 2018 (UK); December 25th, 2018 (US)…

The Nutcracker And The Four Realms tells the story of a young girl who is transported into a magical world of gingerbread soldiers and an army of mice.

Directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston; Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman and Mackenzie Foy star…

I couldn’t help but think of Alice In Wonderland as this trailer played. I’ve also just realised that I don’t think my childhood featured a moment when I learnt about The Nutcracker story, in which case I look forward to being surprised with it. it could also be that my memory is just bad.

Lastly, I think I may want that purple dress.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms release Dates: October 26th, 2018 (uk); November 2nd, 2018 (US)…

In Smallfoot, Channing Tatum plays Migo, a Yeti convinced that the elusive creatures known as “humans” actually do exist.

Zendaya and Danny DeVito also star while Karey Kirkpatrick and Jason Reisig cowrite and direct.

As I watched this trailer, a few things went through my mind. Firstly, what a brilliant idea! I totally didn’t see the twist coming. Second, How nice for Channing Tatum. Finally a movie he’s made that his young daughter can actually watch all the way through. Lastly Of course Tatum’s character had to have great dance moves. Of course.

I’m really looking forward to this one and I’ll be careful not watch any more Smallfoot trailers I just really want to be surprised delighted by the film.

Additional cast includes Jimmy Tatro, Yara Shahidi, Gina Rodriguez, James Corden, LeBron James and Common.

Smallfoot Release Dates: September 28th, 2018 (US); October 5th, 2018 (UK)…
