This week at the Park we have some fantastic beast, the return of the Ice Age, and a big friendly giant.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
It is time to head back into the Wizarding World people. Fantastic Beasts is based on of the 2001 book by J. K. Rowling of the same name and follows Newt Scamander and his journey to New York for a meeting with the Magical Congress of the United States of America. With him is a magical briefcase that just so happens to be housing a large number of dangerous creatures. It can hold all these creatures and their habitats because well, magic. Some of the creatures escape which causes some of the American wizarding authorities to try to track down Newt and it also raises the tension between magical and non-magical relations. It is up to Newt to track down the creatures and prevent any further conflict in between the people of magic and those of non magic.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Samantha Morton, and Ezra Miller and hits theaters November 18th, 2016.
Ice Age: Collision Course
Just when you think the Ice Age series has covered it all, they come out with another ridiculous idea. In the 5th installment of the franchise, Scrat basically brings upon the end of the world. When trying to find a nice place to put his acorn, Scrat stumbles upon an alien spaceship and in his confusion of what it is, flies into outer space and creates the solar system. This threatens the Earth, which forces Manny, Sid, Diego, and the rest of the herd to leave their home behind and embark on an epic adventure to escape the asteroids. The film is bringing in a ton of new voice actors including Nick Offerman and Neil deGrasse Tyson, so it should make for a fun movie.
Ice Age: Collision Course stars Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Queen Latifah, and Jennifer Lopez and crashes into theaters July 22nd, 2016.
Based off of the book of the same name, The BFG follows the unlikely friendship of a girl and a giant. Sophie is a young girl in an orphanage who one night is captured by a giant. But to her luck, this giant does not eat children like the others, he is very friendly and only eats vegetables. The two go to Giant Country where there are many more less friendly giants who do in fact eat children. It is up to Sophie, the BFG, and the Queen of England to stop the giants and save the children.
The BFG stars Ruby Barnhill, Mark Rylance, Bill Hader, and Rebecca Hall and hits theaters July 1st, 2016.
