The Best Movies To Watch This Year With Your Kids

While the gritty and bloody Logan film that came out earlier this year isn’t suitable for kids – there are plenty of amazing and fun films that are. From Wonder to Spiderman – there is a lot on offer this year in terms of the cinema and streaming at home, so while you might want to stick to the classics like The Jungle Book – there are still a lot of good films coming out!

The best way to watch films will always be in the armchair of a good cinema – but this isn’t always possible, or suitable.Streaming films at home is always a good idea with apps like Netflix and tools like www.flixusa.com.au which can allow you to access films that are usually split up by regional licenses. No matter if it is at home or at the cinema, you still need to get some popcorn. Here are some movies that both you and your kids will love this year!

It can be tough growing up – especially if you suffer from something that makes you ‘less normal’ in the eyes of society. Physical disabilities and deformities are tackled in the story of Auggie in Wonder. Wonder is a film about being different and why it is ok to be you! Films like this are not just fun, but they send an important message to our kids – that it’s ok to be different and that we should be friends with all sorts of people, no matter what they look or sound like.

Stories are amazing when they are visual and for younger kids, or kids who struggle to hear or listen. The Red Turtle by Studio Ghibli focuses on the story and features sound, but no dialogue as a man gets stranded on an island. It is colorful and cartoony and an amazing film for our children to watch and enjoy.There is also a lot of animation on offer this year. From the zany Boss Baby (which is exactly as described) right through to the third Despicable Me film, and ‘The Emoji Film’. There are at least three options there if you are stuck for ideas, but you shouldn’t be! There is a lot to watch this year. The one to watch could be Pixar’s Coco which focuses on the Mexico Day of the Dead celebration. It is nowhere near as sinister as it sounds though, as a kid explores a centuries-old mystery in relation to the Latin American celebration.

The big kids films come in the form of Marvel, and this could be their best year yet for outright ‘fun’. Marvel films got serious last year, but the fun is coming back. Especially with Spiderman: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok. These could be some silly and enjoyable films that features not only our kid’s favorite film characters, but characters we loved back in the day. Plus, these films are as enjoyable for adults as they are for kids!
