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).
A new trailer for the upcoming Dreamworks Animation film, Trolls, has debuted. While the teaser trailer (that was released a few months ago) made the film seem pretty stupid, this trailer has made the film save face a bit. It’s set to be released on November 4, 2016 in the US. Are you excited for the film?
The long-awaited sequel from Illumination Entertainment, “Despicable Me 2”, has shown itself to be an instant hit! With a 5-day weekend gross of $142 million, it wouldn’t surprise me if this film outgrosses “Monsters University”! Have you seen the film? If so, what did you think of it? If not, do you plan to see it?
I’m anxiously awaiting its DVD release, although I’m still upset that Al Pacino isn’t in it anymore 😦 !
