Here’s where we look forward to the family movies coming up in March and April 2019, and there are some great kids movies coming up in time for Easter, including a remake of Dumbo by visonary director Tim Burton and Captain Marvel for fans of superhero movies.
Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel (12A) is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Universe. It follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the centre of the maelstrom.
Out on 8th March it stars Annette Bening, Ben Mendelsohn, Brie Larson, Jude Law and Samuel L. Jackson.
Fans of the original Dumbo (TBC) may be in for a surprise when they see visionary director Tim Burton’s take on this classic Disney animation. It is an all-new grand live-action adventure which expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight, which is out on 29th March 2019.
Circus owner Max Medici enlists former star Holt Farrier and his children to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughing stock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback. Dumbo is recruited for larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland, but beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
Starring Danny DeVito, Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton and Eva Green.
