Everyone loves a trip to the movies, but since getting the entire family to the theater isn’t always an easy (or inexpensive!) feat, you want to make sure the flick you choose is the right one. Luckily 2017 is shaping up to be quite a year for family-friendly films: From awesome animation to remakes the whole family will adore, we’ve rounded up the best new movies worth watching. The only thing left to do is pass the popcorn!

Ferdinand The Bull

Do you remember reading The Story of Ferdinand when you were a kid? The classic children's book published in 1936 from author Munro Leaf is about to hit the big screen. We're excited to see how this charming story about a bull who would rather smell flowers than fight in bullfights gets re-adapted and introduced to new audiences.
