Movies in 2019
The Lion King, 19 July
What we know so far is the re-make is being launched on the 25th anniversary of the release of the original. Who knew how old it was? The animals will be produced in CGI – just as they were in the re-make of the Jungle Book, both directed by Jon Favreau. The most exciting news is that Beyonce – yes the real Beyonce – will be the voice of Nala. Donald Glover will voice Simba and Seth Rogan has been brought in to play Pumba the warthog. Equally as exciting is that Elton John himself is re-working his own original tunes for the film with help from Beyonce. They’re also writing an original new song together. Talk about an all-star cast. One of the movies in 2019 we literally cannot wait for.
Avengers 4: Endgame, 26 April
Marvel’s trailer for Endgame looks pretty action-packed. But it starts on a sad note with Tony Stark stuck out in space while Captain America and Black Widow attempt to save him. It all looks pretty bleak for Tony but will he be rescued?
Frozen 2, 22 November
All we know about this Frozen film is that it’s a sequel. The plot is yet to be revealed. But surely there’s going to be another banger of a tune in there?
Colette, 11 January
Based on a true story at the start of the twentieth century, Colette is about a French woman who writes novels for her husband in his name. But once a book gets published she wants to challenge gender norms of the time and see her name in print, but he’s against it. Colette is played by Keira Knightley, who as we all know, excels in strong roles of women ahead of their time.
Mary Queen of Scots, 18 January
We do love Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan and it’s great news if you do too because they play leads in this film. It’s a historical one about Mary’s attempt to overthrow her cousin Elizabeth I from the throne. If you listened in history class you’ll know she was imprisoned and then executed so the plot is not a surprise. If done well, we’re sure it’ll be an interesting watch.
Isn’t it Romantic, 14 February (how fitting)
This one has an all-star cast with Rebel Wilson, Priyanka Chopra, Chris Hemsworth, Jennifer Saunders and Adam DeVine. It’s all about a woman fed up of love finding herself trapped inside a sickly sweet rom-com. The only way out? Fall in love of course. The storyline might sound average but you just know it’s going to be good with that cast. Hello? Rebel is in it. Just check the trailer out it does look pretty great for an easy watch…
How To Train Your Dragon 3: The Hidden World, 2019
No set release date in the UK yet for this one, but Hiccup and Toothless are back for more adventure with impossible decisions on the way about the best way to save their kind.
Wonder Woman 1984, November
A sequel is here to the 2017 re-make starring Gal Gadot but nothing much is known yet about the plot. Keep your eyes peeled for a trailer. One thing’s for sure, we know it’s going to be ram-packed with girl power.
Dumbo, 29 March
A live-action re-make of the much-loved Disney classic. Re-making old Disney films is all the rage and this one is no doubt set to be equally as great. Plus Disney have Tim Burton on side as a visionary director, always a good thing.
Toy Story 4, 21 June
Pixar describes this new addition to the Toy Story films as a standalone movie. It sees Woody and the gang hunt for a missing Bo Peep and a new addition toy called Forky. We know sometimes extending these great films isn’t always a good thing, but Toy Story 3 was epic so we’ve got faith in Disney Pixar for round four.
IT: Chapter Two, July
As if we weren’t scared enough the first time around. If you’re over the jumpiness of IT’s re-make in 2017 now part two is here. Eeek! 27 years after the Losers Club have moved away, they are all brought back to their hometown by a phone call.
Aladdin, 24 May
We’re not sure anyone will ever replace Robin Williams as the genie, but we’ve got faith in Will Smith to do the role justice. It’s a Disney classic and we’ll be glad to see it back on our screens and re-live a bit of our childhood.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle 2, 13 December
The plot to this is unknown, but the first one was so hilarious, we cannot wait. Sadly we will have to wait until December for it, however, good things come to those who wait is what they say.
Rocketman, 24 May
The highly anticipated film about Elton John’s life arrives in cinemas in May. Not too bothered about EJ? Keep your mum/aunt/sister happy and go with her, it’s bound to be pretty great.
And if you can’t wait until then, check out all the movies you should watch this Christmas.
