Pandas are one of the world’s most beloved animals of all time. So it’s not a shock when there’s a movie about them like Kung Fu Panda, we love it!
Our lazy, irrelevant, and clumsy panda is back at it again with a whole new adventure. In the first film, Po was suddenly chosen to fulfill a prophecy. That prophecy was non-other than Po’s dream! It became a reality when he started to study alongside his idols the “Furious Five”. Through many ups and downs along the way, he fulfilled his purpose and defeated Tai Lung. As we patiently wait for the return of Po and the Furious Five, let’s look at what to watch that’ll keep us busy!
The pet chameleon Rango is always looking for action and adventure. After a car accident, he finds himself in an old western town called “Dirt”. This town is in desperate need of water, a hero, and also a sheriff. The action thirsty (and also in need of water) Rango takes on both roles and agrees to solve the case of the missing water. For this movie, instead of recording voiceovers in booths, most of the voice-over was recorded on a set.
The actors acted out the scenes with their fellow cast members. These cast members were names such as Johnny Depp (Rango), Bill Nighy (Rattlesnake Jake), and Isla Fisher (Beans). The movie was directed by Gore Verbinski. The way our main character Rango takes on the role of the “hero” is very familiar with Kung Fu Panda. So you’ll probably enjoy it even more! If you are interested, you can watch the trailer for Rango here:
2. How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
Our fierce leader Hiccup and his village are back with another adventure! While the happiness of creating a peaceful dragon utopia continues, new darkness approaches them. Toothless discovered an untamed, elusive new mate for himself and it draws him away. When Hiccup’s (Jay Baruchel) reigns as village chief is put to test, the dragon and the rider must come together to make impossible choices. All are at risk, and they must save their kind.
Director Dean DeBlois has worked his magic to really give us “the feels”! Actors such as Cate Blanchett, America Ferrera, and many more are there to present us with yet another adventure. Here’s the trailer for you to get a taste of what’s to come! An especially exciting movie about heroes, and fighting for the right cause while you await Kung Fu Panda 2!
3. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader) is an inventor and although his inventions do not make sense nor they are useful. However, he has his mother’s full support until the day she dies. When he’s left with only his father, the not-so-supporting parent figure thinks he should give up. Then comes the economic crisis of his town. When the sardine cannery -his town’s only source of income- shuts down, Flint decides to use one of his inventions to turn water into food.
That machine ends up in the atmosphere and by some weird luck, it starts to rain food everywhere. The shifty mayor of town uses this to his benefit but Flint senses that something is about to go down. Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller alongside actors like Anna Faris and Andy Samberg give us a new way of heroism to watch and honestly, love! If you’re intrigued, watch the trailer to see it all and more!
4. Despicable Me 3
After getting fired from the Anti-Villain League, Gru (Steve Carell) finds himself in the midst of an identity crisis. After being informed that he has a long-lost twin brother, -who happens to be interested in Gru’s former despicable job- he immediately contacts him. After being reunited, Gru alongside his brother rediscovers just how good it felt to be bad.
The adventure he takes on alongside his wife Lucy (Kristen Wiig) is quite the game changer! Directors Pierre Coffin, Kyle Balda, and Eric Guillon have combined their directing minds and given us a lovely movie to watch! To take a glimpse of what happens, watch the trailer and see that not all good guys have to be, %100 “good”! (And sometimes, you kind of can love the villain too…)
5. The Boss Baby
Seven-year-old little Tim (Toby Maguire) is the happiest he’s ever been, taking all the love and affection from both of his parents. That all changes when Boss Baby (Alec Baldwin) arrives. His unexpected new brother in a black suit complete with a tie and a briefcase takes over Tim’s happiness little by little. Soon after, both brothers will join forces to shut down the Puppy Co. Although they are no Furious Five (well six with Po), the boys will surprise you! Director Tom McGrath is giving you a cute but dangerous feast to watch upon. Here’s the trailer for you! Enjoy!
