5 great family films coming in 2018

Who doesn't love a good family friendly film? Action films, heart wrenching dramas and sidesplitting comedies can make for great cinema and all can be found in that perfect family film. How often are we surprised with that movie that is for the younger members of the family, entertains and resonates with the "grown ups" .Such films can cleverly combine charm and energy with a strong message heavily submerged in clever humour  and often end up on the top ten lists of favourite films with all ages (Paddington 2 being a prime example!). With that in mind I have selected 5 such gems that will be carrying on the strong tradition of excellent family film and will be making their way to our cinema screens this year:

5. Peter Rabbit - release date March 16th
Already been heavily advertised this Beatrix Potter based film written and directed by Will Gluck includes an all star cast including Domhnall Gleeson, Rose Byrne and James Corden and looks spectacular. Should be lots if fun and entertainment for all ages!

4. A Wrinkle in Time - coming March 2018
Based on the science fantasy novel by Madeleine L'Engle and directed by Ava DuVernay this latest children's blockbuster from the Disney stable is visually stunning with a strong cast on board also in a film that should be wonders in the box office and provide great family entertainment!

3. Incredibles 2 - release date June 15th 2018
With Brad Bird back at the helm and all cast members returning what is not to look forward to with Incredibles 2? One of Pixar's most requested sequels finally hits our screens and if it;s a patch on it's predessor we are all in for a treat!

2. Ralph Breaks the Internet - Wreck it Ralph 2 - release date Nov 18th 2018
With a catchy title like that and the return of Walt Disney Studios most popular animated characters voiced by the brilliant John C.Reilly alongside such talent as Sarah Silverman , Jane Lynch and Alan Tudyk there is a lot to look forward to with the impending release of the sequel to the 2012 box office hit!

1. Mary Poppins Returns - release date December 26th 2018
Not always a good idea to redo the classic but with Emily Blunt in the title role and Rob Marshall (Chicago, Into the Woods) in the hot seat this just may work as we revisit the Banks family all grown up and the reintroduction of the world's favourite nanny and a host of new and exciting characters!
