Here is some of what is to come this year in the entertainment industry!

The next installment of the Toy Story series will be released this year. Toy Story 4 will premiere on June 21. This film will introduce a new character, “Forky,” who tags along with the rest of the group on a road trip.

It has become common in recent years to bring cartoon movies, that we all know and love, to real-life. Three films this year will be “brought to life.”

Also, Dark Phoenix will come to theaters on June 7. It will add to the rather large collection of X-men projects, highlighting Jean Grey’s dark persona.

Following the successful Bohemian Rhapsody movie comes another biographic story about a legend, Elton John. Rocketman will debut on May 31.

A couple comedies will be premiering soon. What Men Want on February 8 and Isn’t It Romantic on Valentine’s day.

When asked about movies coming this year, Giselle Avila, a sophomore at Pitman High School, shared her excitement.

“…I’m most excited for…the new Marvel Avengers 4 Endgame because this is going to be the final film within the Marvel Cinematic Universe in this current generation and also Avengers is one of those movies that you wish that there was more to it and doesn’t get old and it’s a classic.,” she exclaimed.

There are far more films coming to theaters this year, but these seem to be ones that people are most excited for. So grab some popcorn and enjoy the fictional realities that we all wish we were actually apart of.
