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!


When big hitters Pixar and Disney come together, it usually means cinematic gold. That's why the animated movie Coco easily makes our list of 2017 movies worth watching. Using Día de los Muertos as inspiration, the essence of the story is about a 12-year-old boy named Miguel, who grew up in rural Mexico, and how the celebration of family, remembrance and connection across generations can resonate and inspire us all.
