2022 already? I think we can all agree that while 2020 never seemed that it would end, 2021 just zoomed by us! Maybe it was a better year than 2020, maybe it was more of the same, but whatever the case may be, it’s nearing its end.
We hope that 2022 will be an even better year for us and hopefully we can be free of this pandemic that we’re in! Good thing we have films (animated films, in particular) to keep us occupied. Let’s take a look at the upcoming animated films set to be released in 2022.
Keep in mind that I’ll only be mentioning films with set (US) release dates and that I won’t be mentioning any live-action/animated hybrid films. Also because the pandemic has shown us that streaming is pretty much a reality that’s not going away anytime soon, I will be including animated films debuting on streaming services as well.
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).
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!
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!
Regardless of whether or not you’re a fan of the Despicable Me franchise, Illumination Entertainment is making a 3rd film! And the first trailer for Despicable Me 3 has recently debuted!
From what I see in the trailer, I feel that this film will be….okay, at best, something along the lines of Despicable Me 2 quality. The villain seems quite annoying and I know I’m alone in this, but I miss the Minions’ presence in the trailer. (Oh, and I love Gru’s singing voice!) Hopefully the film (which is set to be released on June 30, 2017) will exceed my expectations!
What do you all think of the trailer? Are you interested in a 3rd Despicable Me film? Let me know in the comments below!
When it was announced that the Minions from the Despicable Me franchise were getting their own spinoff film, many people weren’t all that excited for it. This was mainly because many people were tired of the Minions and felt that the Minions couldn’t hold their own as main characters rather than side characters. Thankfully, I am a huge fan of the Minions and thought that I’d love to see them as the stars of their own film, so I was quite excited for this movie. Did I end up liking it? Well, let’s find out!
Illumination Entertainment’s Minions opened up to the #1 spot in the weekend box office grossing over $115 million domestically. It’s said to be the second highest opening weekend for an animated film after Shrek the Third.
Have you seen it? Was it good? Do you plan on seeing it if you haven’t already?
I take a break from my…break…(ironic?)…to wrap up the year like I did last year: with a preview of the upcoming year’s animated films. Below, you’ll find a list of all the animated movies scheduled to be theatrically released (in America) with their respective trailers/posters/images (if available) and brief descriptions.
