    So many great movies all in one year:) I am really curious abut the new Jungle Book. It looks really good but I hope the dramatic element doesn’t outweigh the fun feel good element that was in the old version.

  3. I can’t wait till I see these movies! I’m actually really excited about seeing The Finest Hour! I did not know there was going to be a spinoff from the Star Wars movies that’s quite interesting.

  4. 2016 is going to be a great year for movies! Zootopia, Finest Hours, The BFG, and Alice are on my list for sure!

  5. The 2016 movie lineup looks fantastic, but I would expect nothing less from Disney. I think I am most excited about Finding Dory since we have been waiting so long!

  6. So many great movies ahead. I can’t wait to see them all, and I know my kids will love the kiddie ones too!

  7. I am especially excited for Pete’s Dragon and Moana to come out but there are so many good ones coming from them!
