Hellllooooooo, Friday! It’s been a week, and I’m in need of some smiles and fun to kick off the weekend on a good note. Thankfully, the good folks at Disney Studios have been working hard this week and released not one, not two, but three fabulous film trailers this week.
Not only will they make you smile, they’ll have you marking dates on your calendar for when you can see these movies on the big screen. As an added bonus, these are all heavy on girl power, each in their own way, and I was particularly gratified to see that. It’s a trifecta of awesomeness.
Ralph Breaks the Internet
In theaters: November 21, 2018
Vanellope von Schweetz has a special place in our hearts, but I never imagined her interacting with Gal Gadot (or a character voiced by her). Good thing the folks at Disney have a bigger and better imagination than I do.
Mary Poppins Returns
In theaters: December 19, 2018
Please tell me you watched until the end to see all the amazing actors appearing in this movie. Side note: You know you haven’t completely blown this whole parenting gig when your teen excitedly exclaims, “Dick Van Dyke?!?!?”
In theaters: March 8, 2019
The trailer is an adrenaline rush so I can only imagine what the movie will be like. Brie Larson appears to have been born to play Carol Danvers, and I’m excited that it’s set in the 1990s, a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
