Once again, it’s time to take a look at what next year has to offer us in terms of theatrical animation! Many of us felt that 2017 wasn’t a great year for animation (at least, not for mainstream animation), so we’re hoping that 2018 can make up for it!
Check out my list below of the upcoming theatrical animated films set for release next year! Bear in mind that these are only the animated films with verified US/Canada release dates and that any and all dates are subject to change at any time. Enjoy!
The first trailer for Wes Anderson’s upcoming stop-motion animated film, Isle of Dogs, has debuted.
The film is about a young boy in Japan who goes in search of his dog who has been sent to a nearby “trash island” where all dogs are sentenced to go to due to overpopulation in the cities.
The story seems interesting enough and Wes Anderson is no stranger to animation having previously directed 2009’s Fantastic Mr. Fox. Isle of Dogs features the voice talents of Edward Norton, Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, Greta Gerwig, Tilda Swinton, and Liev Schreiber, amongst others. The film is set to hit theaters on March 23, 2018.

Well, it’s that time again! As the year comes to a close, it’s time to take a look at the theatrical animated films that are due for release next year. Once again, these are the animated films that have release dates (USA release dates) only! Enjoy!
So I’ve finally seen this film that (hopefully) ends the “Madagascar” franchise with a trilogy! I was never a fan of the “Madagascar” franchise and never thought much of the other two movies! So the fact that I actually LIKE this movie is somewhat of a shocker! And although I do like it, I also think that it’s not a great movie nor is it perfect.
