Hello movie lovers I am back again with another comprehensive article on a year’s film genre. We will have a look on 2018’s kids’ movies from worldwide cinema along with Hollywood films. It has been a tough job to search such films of different film industries; though it feels amazing to know about them.

Skip to: Expert bloggers’ Notes

Most of the films here are PG and U rated and are based on fantasy, adventure and comedy; kids will love them. I have also included some superhero movies.

Hence, we have a list that is for kids’ audience and as well as for family.

The first film told a story about two gnomes named Gnomeo & Juliet who love each other but they belong to two rebel gnomes’ groups.

In the upcoming film, there will be a gnome Sherlock homes who is going to find and solve the mystery of a missing gnome. Johnny Depp will be the voice of Sherlock; that is one more reason to wait for the film.

The first film was distributed by Walt Disney and the upcoming film will be distributed by Paramount along with being produced.

It shows a little girl named Chloë who moves into a haunted castle, there she witnesses that the garden gnomes have life that are at the place to protect the world from creatures from different dimension. Together, they take against the odds.

Most of the script is set in the house showing encounters between the good and bad with light comedy. It is a movie that is worthy watching one time. There may not be powerful elements such as empathy and conflicts, but it is a fun movie and perfect for kids.

A cookie from the box turns a person into the animal in which a cookie is shaped. Now, the cracker box becomes a source of never seen before circus performances.

Early Comments: Expectations – I believe that the film will be among the most entertaining kids’ films of the year. Also, there would be several quality humor scenes that will make people laugh. Audience may feel the effect of it after being home from theaters. Predicted Score: 6.8 – 7.2

Early Man


Rating –  (3.1 / 5)

Director – Nick Park

Writer – Mark Burton

Star Cast – Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams

Release Date – 16 February 2018

Run Time – 1.29 hr

Watch Trailer

Movie Overview: This movie has impressed me the most in the genre of the year 2018. I appreciate such creativity of the writers of the film, Mark Burton and John O’Farrell. Stop motion animation is another element of the film that makes it fascinating. I am personally waiting to be a viewer of it.

Story: A Stone Age tribe loses its freedom when a new era (Bronze Age) kingdom makes them captured. The only way through the Stone Age tribe can have freedom is to defeat the Bronze Age kingdom in a soccer match.

It would be interesting to see how the early man will prepare against a kingdom that is equipped with much modern tools.

Early Comments: Expectations –  From the begging to the end, the film will make the audience fixed to their seats; there will be so much happening in the screenplay. It will be among such rare films these days that critics applaud. Predicted score:   7.2 – 7.8

Peter Rabbit


Rating –  (3.3 / 5)

Director – Will Gluck

Writer – Rob Lieber

Star Cast – James Corden, Fayssal Bazzi, Domhnall Gleeson

Release Date – 9 February 2018

Run Time – 1.35 hr

Watch Trailer

Movie Overview: The character of mischievous Peter Rabbit is among the most famous and iconic fictional characters, especially for children. It was first appeared in children books by Beatrix Potter in early 1900s; later the character appeared in many art works that includes a few films too.

The upcoming Peter Rabbit film is going to be a real and more serious feature film on the character. However, the trailer has gotten a negative feedback. But, I believe the film will be good for kid audience.

The entire concept revolves around a disobedient anthropomorphic rabbit who has been a threat for a farmer named Mr. McGregor.

The 2018 film will also showcase the same idea but this time Peter has been into Mr. McGregor’s farm and into his house along with so many other friends of his. Read More

Early Comments: Expectations –  There are many chances that the film will be disliked by critics. But if we consider the targeted audience (kids) then this would be a must watch. Predicted Score: 5 – 5.4

Scooby-Doo & Batman: the Brave and the Bold


Rating –  (3.4 / 5)

Director – Jake Castorena

Writer – James Tucker

Star Cast – Frank Welker, Grey Griffin, Matthew Lillard

Release Date – 9 January 2018

Run Time – 1.15 hr

Watch Trailer

Movie Overview: For the first time in the history of cinema the two iconic and beloved characters are going to team up against odd. We have seen them before in an episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, but there hasn’t been a feature film before. So, it would be a pleasure for all to watch the film in 2018.

I still remember the day when I first got to know about Cartoon Network in the year 2000. There was The Scooby-Doo Show being shown on the channel; I became a sincere kid viewer of the show since then. And, since 2005-2006 I have been a fan of Batman. So it would be a great feeling to watch the Scooby-Doo & Batman: the Brave and the Bold.

Early Comments: Expectations –  The film will have Sooby’s gang solving mystery for Batman in Gotham city; there will be Batman taking against evil villains. All this at one place, the film is going to be a worthy watch for universal audience. Predicted Score: 7.3 – 7.5

Invader Zim


Rating – NA

Director – Jhonen Vasquez

Writer – Breehn Burns

Star Cast – Melissa Fahn, Richard Steven Horvitz, Andy Berman

Release Date – NA

Run Time – 1.06 hr

Watch Trailer

Movie Overview: It would be so amazing to have a feature film on Invader Zim. When I first read about the T.V series; its concept and characters made me interested the most. Invader Zim will be a direct to video and T.V film; it won’t be at the theaters.

Story: The upcoming film will also focus on the core concept of the T.V series.

At planet Irk, the leaders have plans to invade entire universe. They assign one plant to each of their assassin. At the end, one of the planet’s creature named Zim comes and begs to assign him the same. The leaders make him fooled that there is some hidden planet in the galaxy which he can capture. However, Zim lands on planet earth.

Early Comments: Expectations –  Viewers can be assured that this film is going to be a good watch. The idea and the review of the T.V series make circumstances a guarantee. Predicted Score: 7.7 – 8

Mary Poppins Returns

Director – Rob Marshall

Writer – David Magee

Star Cast – Emily Blunt, Meryl Streep, Colin Firth

Release Date – 25 December 2018

Run Time – Na

Watch Trailer

Movie Overview: Such simple fairy tale ideas are loved by kids, especially by toddlers. And, they never get old for the targeted audience. After around 5 decades, the character of Mary Poppins is going to Bank’s house again.

The creation of the character was started during the depression period in London with a children’s book series. Later in the year 1964, it was transformed into a feature film with live action animation included by Walt Disney.

The first film shows how a magical woman Mary Poppins gets back the lost joy of a family in London. Now in the upcoming 2018 film, she is again going to visit the same family whose children have grown up.

Early Comments: Expectations – Star cast of Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep makes the film more fascinating along with being a product of Walt Disney’s classic. As it is more a reboot, it will definitely be a great watch for kids and families. Predicted Score: 6.1 – 6.7

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2

Not Yet Rated

Director – Phil Johnston, Rich Moore

Writer – Phil Johnston

Star Cast – John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer

Release Date – 21 November 2018

Run Time – Na

Watch Trailer

Movie Overview: I really respect and appreciate Hollywood for such wonderful and creative ideas. If I talk particularly about the film series then I have found it among the most impressive concepts of all time.

The series displays the world of video games where one of the characters of a game desires to be a hero for all, while being a destroyer in his game.

In the upcoming film, Ralph along with his friend Vanellope hunts for a part of a video game through internet to make it fixed.

Early Comments: Expectations – So the new Ralph film has a much different script than the first film. In the first film he goes into a video game, wins a medal and triggers to threat. In the 2018’s film, he is having a journey into the internet which sounds so promising. Predicted Score: Above 8

Madagascar 4


Rating – NA

Director – Mireille Soria

Writer – Noah Baumbach

Star Cast – Chris Rock, Ben Stiller, Jada Pinkett Smith

Release Date – in 2018

Run Time – Na

Watch Trailer (Na)

Movie Overview: The franchise is among the most beloved animated films one along with being a box office smasher. After 6 years the team of Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer and Jada Pinkett Smith are going to be back as our loved zoo animals. Some sources say that it is going to be the last film of the franchise. But, I don’t think so because it has been 6 years since the last film and the plot ended at an open juncture. Creators would have been working to elevate the Madagascar world; it could be a new beginning.

According to the sources, the upcoming film may concern about the future of the zoo animals. But nothing has been officially announced by DreamWorks.

If you don’t know already; Madagascar films displays about four zoo animals that have gone to the wildlife of Africa but the animals can’t tolerate such harsh life after being nurtured in the zoo. Now they are longing to get back to their home.

Early Comments: Expectations –  I am a huge fan of the overall concept, but the 2018 film won’t have the exact same; the animals reached to New York in the last film. So, it is hard to predict much but considering the time gap since Madagascar 3, we may expect something worthy. Expected Rating: 6.1 – 6.5

Movie Overview: It is among the most popular and loved brands along with being the best in the doll business. There have been dozens of live-action films on Barbie, mostly different with each other in concept but drives viewers to an adventure. The upcoming Barbie movie will also be a direct to video film with an adventure journey.

Because of not being perfect like other dolls in “Barbieland”, one of the dolls is made to leave and send to the real world. While in the real world, the doll starts believing in her. She goes back to her homeland and turns into a savior.

Early Comments: Expectations – As many of us are already aware of the fact that most Barbie films have gain average response. Hence, the 2018’s film will also be a nice one time watch. Just enjoy it with little ones and have fun, nothing much. Predicted Score: 4.9 – 5.2

Release Date – 28 September 2018

Run Time – 1:49 hr

Movie Overview: The film has a super cool script, not because it is about Yetis who live in Himalayas but due to its perception.

There have been many films that display stories of monster who are found by some human and they become friendly or humans begins wondering about the creature. Now the exact same story is going to be showcased but by the perception of a monster that gets to know about a creature called “Smallfoot”, a human being.

Early Comments: Expectations –  After considering the concept and watching the trailer it feels like the film will have a screenplay that will be among the finest of the year in all the genres. Go and watch it on 28th September 2018. Predicted Score: 7.1 – 7.5

Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives and 40 Thieves


Rating – NA

Star Cast – Chris Miller

Release Date – in 2018

Run Time – na

Watch Trailer (na)

Movie Overview: It is the second Dream Works Animation film in our list that people would have been waiting to watch eagerly. The upcoming film will also follow a similar adventurous script where Puss in Boots triggers a mission to defeat a robber and his gang of 40.

Interestingly, there may be Shrek along with Puss to help him defeating the villain. It would be the best gift to the viewers if this happens.

Fact: Puss in Boots is a fairy tale character; its first creation was in the century 1500s.

Early Comments: Expectations –  The movie will have good valued entertainment similar to the previous film. Go and enjoy the character of the cat and have fun. However, the upcoming film may lag in the idea. Predicted Score: 6 – 6.3

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation


Rating – NA

Director – Genndy Tartakovsky

Writer – Michael McCullers

Star Cast – Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Kathryn Hahn

Release Date – 13 July 2018

Run Time – 1:25 hr

Watch Trailer

Movie Overview: The idea of Hotel Transylvania franchise is really interesting and no brainer as well; perfect for kids. It is much identical to Monster High that is loved by little ones too. However, Hotel Transylvania is also a fit for older audience as well, as it contains humor each time. We can say it is a worthy family watch.

In the 2018 and the third movie, Dracula who has been serving to the monster community through his resort, has been low because of no love in life. He goes to a luxurious vacation on a cruise with other monsters, and there he gets attracted towards the ship’s captain. However, the captain isn’t what she expresses; she has some hazardous trap for the monsters.

The script seems compelling; it has a nice conflict where monster community is in danger. And being themed on a vacation where everyone looks to enjoy, adds entertainment.

The Grinch


Rating – NA

Director – Yarrow Cheney

Writer – Michael LeSieur

Star Cast – Benedict Cumberbatch

Release Date – 9 November 2018

Run Time – na

Watch Trailer

Movie Overview: The character may not be familiar to many, it is the creation of Dr. Seuss in the 1956’s children’s book “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”. There has been a feature length movie in 2000 of the same named, featured Jim Carry as Grinch. But, it is the first time the story is being presented in an animated flick.

I found the character really interesting; he hates Christmas and plans to ruin it with the help of his dog, who poses as Santa Claus. He holds hilarious characteristics as well; he is lazy, sometimes stupid and short-tempered as well.

There aren’t many movies these days that shows a journey or tale of change and realization of poor or evil ideology. Mostly, such characters are villains in mainstream cinema.

The Grinch is one such rare movie. It is a remake of 2000’s film where a little girl tries to make Grinch feel good about Christmas rather than destroying the joy.

So these were the films that I found the most promising in the genre for 2018. Some films may not have a great looking script but considering the targeted audience, I found them worthy to list. Some more films are below that have caught my eyes.

Johnny English 3


Rating – NA

Director – David Kerr

Writer – Neal Purvis

Star Cast – Olga Kurylenko, Emma Thompson, Jake Lacy

Release Date – 18 October 2018

Run Time – na

Watch Trailer

Movie Overview: I feel blessed when I see the character of Mr.Bean on screen; many would have been feeling similar. Even watching repeated performances of Rowan Atkinson are entertaining. Being said that; get ready to laugh out loud and to be entertain with the upcoming Johnny English film in 2018.

Johnny English films are centralized on the rebooted character of Mr. Bean who has been a spy; unlike others, his style is different. Jonny of course saves his country each time but after having much mess.

Early Comments: Expectations –  Johnny English isn’t about a great concept, it is about screenplay and the great character of Mr.Bean; this makes all elements aside. Not much to say, you will be surely planning to watch it. Predicted Score: 6 – 6.5

The Incredibles 2


Rating – NA

Director – Brad Bird

Writer –Brad Bird

Star Cast – Samuel L. Jackson, Sophia Bush, Holly Hunter

Release Date – 15 June 2018

Run Time – 1:58 hr

Watch Trailer

Movie Overview: So after around 14 years of long time the sequel is going to come. The first film in 2004 got a massive response at the box office and by the critics as well; it is surely the most awaited kids’ film of 2018.

The series is focused on a normal looking family that is actually a superhero one; they take against bad but struggle to live like usual families.

I am really impressed by the character of Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible). He is fat, sometimes sluggish and father of three but though he is a cool super hero.

Story: Bob Parr has to take care of his children while his wife Elastigirl has gone on a mission. While being at home, Bob also comes to experience his youngest child’s powers. Later he also takes against The Underminer, who declared war against good in the first film.

Early Comments: Expectations – So the script of The Incredibles 2 seems good and happening; and the film will surely connect with the viewers similar to the first one. So, I don’t find any reason to not watch the film; it would be perfect. Predicted Score: 7.2 – 7.5

The Little Mermaid


Rating – NA

Director – Blake Harris

Writer –Blake Harris

Star Cast – Gina Gershon, Jared Sandler, William Moseley

Release Date – 17 August 2018

Run Time – 1:34 hr

Watch Trailer

Movie Overview: The movie has an idea that is much compelling and fascinating to kids of all ages; it is a fantasy about a Mermaid. The movie isn’t scripted on the novel; actually it uses the novel as an asset to display a tale.

The script shows an old lady who tells the story of The Little Mermaid to her granddaughters. However, the kids don’t believe her. The lady then tells them another story where a news reporter Cam Harrison with his little sister goes to cover a story about a Mermaid in a circus. All turn blissful to watch the beautiful creature. However, Cam and his sister get to know about the greedy intentions of the Mermaid’s master.

The movie promises to have nice intensity, drama and empathy. Though, the idea may not be wholly new but it still feels interesting with the creature showcased.


PG – 13

Director – Andy Serkis

Writer – Rudyard Kipling

Star Cast – Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Andy Serkis

Run Time –  na

Watch Trailer

Movie Overview:  So Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book has been presented several times on the big screen by Walt Disney. 2016’s film was also a major success at the box office and also got positive reviews.

In 2018 we are going to see Warner Bros’ version of The Jungle Book. The film started to be developed before Walt Disney’s 2016’s version, but due to some delays it triggered further delays due to 2016’s film and now it is going to hit the screens in 2018.

The Warner Bros’s version will be different in terms of production. The director Andy Serkis has shared some insights about the difference; this version is being shot at the real life locations in South Africa and it is targeted towards universal audience.

Additionally, what makes this version more fascinating is the voice of Christian Bale as Bagheera.

Early Comments: Expectations –  The film will focus to showcase the real writing work by Rudyard, so it will be more realistic. There will be a focus on the human side too of the story. I believe the film would have a balance of entertainment and quality. Predicted Score: 7 – 7.3

Christopher Robin

Director – Marc Forster

Writer – Tom McCarthy

Star Cast – Hayley Atwell, Ewan McGregor, Chris O’Dowd

Release Date – 3 August 2018

Run Time –  na

Watch Trailer

Movie Overview: Last year we had a movie on Christopher Robin; however it is the first time that the character is being showcased in the lead, themed at Winnie-the-Pooh world.

Winnie-the-Pooh is among the most iconic and popular fictional characters. There are many feature films and Television series of the franchise since years, developed by Disney. A movie on the subject can never be missed by the fans, especially toddlers.

In the 2018 movie, Christopher Robin is now an adult and has family. However, his personal life suffers due to his professional life. On a day, he stumbles upon his childhood friend Winnie.

So the script will probably showcase how the duo helps Christopher cope up with the harsh time. In the trailer, I noticed that Winnie wasn’t there intentionally and would have been in problem as well.

The character, Christopher Robin isn’t shown in much focus in the franchise’s creations; it is a supporting character. To have the commercial value, there is Winnie in the poster, not Christopher. Though, the essence of the story is he.

Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero


Rating – (3.8 / 5)

The film holds a good cinematic value that will cover the untold story on the Big Screen.

Early Comments: Expectations – Stubby used to be a roamer before being in the U.S military, so the film will also showcase real emotions that will make the audience connected to it. Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero will be loved by both the viewers and critics. Predicted Score: 7.3 – 7.6

Movie Overview: It seems a really hilarious movie with a straightforward but compelling concept. The Television series isn’t much applauded, but for kids it is still worthy.

Plot: Teen Titans believe that there should be a movie on them to make them feel dominating in the superhero world. However, others don’t think so as they haven’t done something remarkable. Having faced rejections, they get an opportunity when they stumble upon Deathstroke who has been a hazard to the world. Being obsessed to have a movie on them, the superhero team gives its all to save the world.

The script houses adventure along with hilarious scenes, and there are other DC universe’s characters also shown. I believe that kids will love it.

Movie Overview: Disney’s movies are pure attraction for kids and families. They have such beautiful cinematography, interesting characters and music that even a simple tale becomes compelling to the viewers by the method it is told. Additionally, inclusion of fairy world makes its movies must watch for the type of viewers.

The script of the movie doesn’t house much new concept or freshness; we all have read such tales in our school’s library. But, like I said that it is more about filmmaking in Disney movies; was there anything we didn’t see in Jungle Book tale before in the 2016’s film? No, but the movie created a magic with its marvelous presentation.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms tells a tale of princess Klara who has to find a key that can unlock a box that houses a precious present given by her mother. To accomplish the task, she enters into an other dimension world. After passing three kingdoms, she encounters with a cruel realm and has to surpass it to have the key.

Expert Bloggers’ NOTES

This is a must check section. I have approached Bloggers who are actively Blogging about Movies and have deep knowledge on the subject. I believe their views will be interesting for Movie Fans for sure. Let’s see which movie our Experts have been waiting for!

Andrew Garrison


The movie I’m waiting for I have to wait another year. How to Train Your Dragon 3. That has been a long wait

Well the franchise discusses very mature concepts. The animation has been exquisite. It also looks to be the final film in a trilogy. Still quite a few questions left to be answered.

Nuwan Sen


From your list, the two that interested me most were; Mary Poppins Returns & The Jungle Book.

Nostalgic reasons!! I grew up watching the original Disney films of both; Mary Poppins and Jungle Book.



In terms of kid’s movies: A Wrinkle in Time (as an original, big Disney sci-fi film) and Mary Poppins Returns (interested to see how Disney try and keep such an iconic character fresh in 2018)

I’m most excited for The Incredibles 2 release because the sequel is long overdue! The original was intelligent and hilarious. I’m excited to see that type of all-ages charm again in theaters this summer.

Isle of Dogs – The cast! The actors lending their voices are some of the finest talent out there at the moment: Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, and the silkiest voice in the business, Jeff Goldblum!

Other film – The Square.

This film has a great cast, but the visual style and drama of the scenes is what makes it stand out. When this is released it will be a top contender for at least cinematography and direction awards.
