Okay. It’s hard to refuse Disney movies, which captivates youngsters, relieves teenagers, and excites adults. Really, who doesn’t love Disney?
Disney has been pure magic to many of us, in fact, all of us. Disney movies were the source of every girl’s very first dream to become a princess. Whether it was deliberately dropping a shoe behind just to check, gaping at the mirror for longer than usual, just incase you miss it talking, our imaginations equally participated in this role of daydreaming. It built (albeit useless) desires of wanting to talk with animals like Mickey, Bambi, Stitch, Jaq and Gus, and the list goes on and on. On top of that, Disney dropped its four series of Pirates of the Caribbean craze with renowned Johnny Depp getting a new and even more noted identity, Captain Jack Sparrow. Frozen and Inside Out, recent additions to the Disney movie franchise, did not disappoint — children giggled and adults wept. With every movie adding more and more to the Disney fantasy and expectations getting higher than ever, the fans (such as yourself) isarepatiently waiting for the next movie release.
Let’s see what more magic Disney will bring to us!
1. The Finest Hours (2016)
Based on a true story, The Finest Hours guides you through the mission of the Coast Guard, intrepidly attempting to rescue other lives during a winter storm. Chris Pine from a 2009 film Star Trek takes the role of the protagonist. This is one of the handful of Disney movies with physical castings, and it’s unmissable.
2. Zootopia (2016)
This might not be familiar to you because it’s “like nothing you’ve seen be-fur,” but don’t worry, because a new kind of fun is guaranteed. Zootopia is another Disney movie where the animals talk. Not just talk, but walk. Not just walk but live together in a society built upon just by different animals. The filmmakers even visited Kenya just to observe various animals and their movements. The story revolves around an optimistic main character, a rabbit, Judy Hopps, surviving Zootopia, with her phrase, “anyone can be anything.”
3. The Jungle Book (2016)
The Jungle Book is no longer a poorly animated, but now it is returning with an all-new-action movie. Mowgli, you’ve heard of the name, adventures in the jungle developing both foe and friend relations with animals.
4. Finding Dory (2016)
It was not long ago, Disney released its Finding Nemo that gave all clown fish, the name “Nemo.” Now it’s back again with Dory, the talkative blue tang fish. Instead of helping Nemo as an extra, in this new film, Dory takes the role of the protagonist that quests to collect pieces from her past.
5. Moana (2018)
Is Elsa getting too outdated? Do you want something new? Then Moana will definitely be your new favorite character. Meet Moana, Disney’s first Polynesian princess and the newest, and somewhat odd, addition to the original eleven, elegant princesses .
6. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017)
It’s the return of Captain Jack and Captain Salazar. Beginning with the escape of Captain Salazar, this series will, again, show us the invincible and fearless Jack Sparrow. Don’t miss out on Johnny Depp’s newest adventure!
With these exciting movies soon to be released, either next in a series or completely brand new, Disney will forever be our dream. Now, get your emotions ready cause you’re never too old for Disney!
