Mowgli, Cap, Alice, Dory and More – 2016 Walt Disney Studios Movie Lineup!

As an avid movie-goer, I’m always a bit giddy when the movie releases for the new year are announced, especially when it’s the Walt Disney Studios motion picture lineup!  I know I’m about to discover an amazing array of well-crafted films to love with old favorites returning and delightful new ones.

To say I plan my calendar around film releases isn’t too far off, I always add them and pay close attention to summer and holiday releases as I know they’ll be scheduled in to our family activity planning for the year.  While they are all penned into my planner, I have to say I’m most excited for May when CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR and ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS arrive, anxious to see both! Also love seeing PETE’S DRAGON on the lineup, it was a childhood favorite of mine and I’m curious to see the updated version.  DR. STRANGE looks like it’s going to be a very cool movie and will definitely be our annual Thanksgiving family movie pick.

    I am most excited about Zootopia, which I know my kids will like watching. The Finest Hours also sounds good.

      Zootopia looks super cute! Will have to take my grand daughter to that one, for sure. Stay tuned, we’ll likely have some fun printable from Disney for that movie, too.
