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!

The LEGO Batman Movie

There's no denying that the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO Movie such a phenomenon will be hard to replicate, but if anyone can do it, it's the original movie's leading man, LEGO Batman. The LEGO Batman Movie is slotted to hit theaters in February, which means kids of all ages will be lining up to see the ultimate battle of LEGO Batman and the joker take place in a Gothem City built entirely of bricks.
