Well, 2020 was some year, huh? Not only did it affect our lives, health, politics, society, etc.; it also affected our film industry. Cinemas were closed for most of the year resulting in many theatrical films being relegated to streaming services or postponed until 2021.
We can all hope 2021 will be a better year, in every respect. To keep our spirits up, let’s take a look at the upcoming animated films set to be released in 2021. Keep in mind that I’ll only be talking about films with set release dates and that I won’t be talking about any live-action/animated hybrid films (like Tom and Jerry, Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, Space Jam: A New Legacy, and Clifford the Big Red Dog).
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!
We have our first trailer for the upcoming 2017 Dreamworks Animation film, The Boss Baby.
I personally feel that this is a story that more befits a short rather than a full-length feature. I also feel that many of the voice actors don’t seem to match their characters. It was especially weird for me to hear Jimmy Kimmel’s voice coming out from the father! But, I’m still open to the film and haven’t written it off.
What do you think of the trailer and the film? It’s set to release in the US/Canada on March 31, 2017 and features the voices of Alec Baldwin, Miles Bakshi, Patton Oswalt, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, and Steve Buscemi.
