The new year is soon upon us, hence it’s time to take a look at next year’s selection of theatrical animated films! Bear in mind that these are only the animated films with verified US release dates and that any and all dates are subject to change at any time. Enjoy!
The fourth animated film trailer of the week has debuted, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World!
The film looks to be just as good as its predecessors to me. I’m loving the Light Fury as well as F. Murray Abraham as the villain! Gotta wait till 2019 to see this though!
What do you think of the trailer?
The actor, John Mahoney, has passed away at the age of 77. Mr. Mahoney (1940-2018) was known for his role on the sitcom, Frasier, as well as for appearing in numerous films including Moonstruck, Eight Men Out, Barton Fink, and Flipped.
In terms of animation, Mr. Mahoney lent his voice to many animated features including Antz,
The Iron Giant,
Atlantis: The Lost Empire,
and Kronk’s New Groove.
He shall be missed!
I know this post is a couple of days late, but the nominations for the upcoming 90th Academy Awards have been released. Click here for a list of all the nominees, but the animation-related ones are listed below:
BEST ANIMATED FEATURE:
The Boss Baby
BEST ANIMATED SHORT:
What do you all think of these nominees, in particular? I haven’t seen The Boss Baby yet, but really? It’s Oscar-worthy? I find that very hard to believe! But, I’m so glad that Glen Keane’s Dear Basketball has made it to the list!
I will post my Oscars predictions in the next couple of weeks!
As the year comes to a close, it comes time again to prepare ourselves for the animated films being released next year! So read on below to find a list of the theatrical animated films set to be released in 2017! Like usual, I’m only listing the ones that have confirmed US release dates at the moment, hence this list is mostly composed of films from the major animation studios. Enjoy!
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!
Dreamworks Animation’s latest film, Home, surprised many critics and audiences by opening at the #1 spot in the weekend box office with a $52 million gross! The film, which many (myself included) deemed it sure to fail provided a much-needed boost to the already-faltering Dreamworks Animation.
Did you see the film? How was it? Do you think Dreamworks Animation can pull itself out from under?
