Holiday Family Outings: Upcoming Animated Movies That Parents Will Enjoy As Well

Posted on: 24 August 2016

The holidays are an ideal time for families to go on outings together, including trips to the movie theaters. The holiday season is filled with a number of family films, including animated titles. When choosing an animated movie for the whole family to enjoy together, it's important that they contain elements that the parents will enjoy as much as the children. Browse through the following films and see why parents will love watching them with children during the months of November and December.

Sing - December 21st, 2016

The Illumination Entertainment film "Sing" combines the world of "Zootopia" with common pop-culture fixtures like "The Voice" and "American Idol." While children will love to laugh and sing along to a variety of hit songs, parents can enjoy familiar voices provided by Reese Witherspoon and Matthew McConaughey. The movie also seems to have a mixture of story lines from popular shows like "Empire," adding some dramatic storytelling that parents can enjoy and appreciate. A number of old-school songs can also remind parents of some of their favorite jams from back in the day.

Trolls - November 4th, 2016

Parents can feed into their nostalgia with a movie based on the popular toy from the 1970s, '80s, and '90s. The animated film follows the lively world of Trolls. It is bright and colorful and seems to cater directly to children, but it's a great way for parents to bond with their child over things that they grew up with. The Trolls movie also features music and voices from both Justin Timberlake and Gwen Stefani, giving parents some familiar tunes to enjoy. It may also be a great way to start off a holiday wish list as many toys or products will likely be released based off this movie.

Moana - November 23rd, 2016

Thanksgiving is an ideal time to go out to the movies, and Disney is using the holiday to release the animated film Moana. The adventure story takes place in Hawaii and features a mix of comedy, magic, and songs. If parents still have the "Frozen" soundtrack blasting through their home, then Moana is great alternative. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is providing the voice of a character, adding some extra comedy elements to the film. Along with the main feature, Disney theatrical releases also typically come with an animated short in the beginning of the film. These shorts are usually clever and filled some fun comedic elements.

Parents can show trailers to their children to help them decide on one or more of the animated movies that they can all view together. It's an ideal time to spend the holidays together while creating memories. For more information, contact local professionals like Rotoscopers.
