1. Storks
Have you had “the talk” with your kids yet? Or do they still think babies are brought to parents all over the world by storks? The latest Warner Bros. animation takes a classic story and throws it into the real, modern world. Storks no longer deliver babies – now they deliver packages. That is, until Junior (Samberg) accidentally turns on the Baby Making Machine and creates an adorable, but unauthorised, baby girl. Then it’s a race against time to deliver the baby to welcoming parents before his boss gets wind of this major blunder.

Voices include Andy Samberg and Jennifer Anniston who are always great fun and Storks is sure to be hilarious for kids, old and young.

In cinemas 14th October 2016

2. Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children
This is an upcoming dark fantasy adventure directed by the one and only Tim Burton. It follows the story of Jake Portman and the strange things that occur to him after the tragic death of his beloved grandfather. He has always believed his grandfather’s stories to be fairy tales, but what if they were actually real? After travelling to Wales to find out more about his grandfather’s childhood, Jake finds himself in a different world where the children are really quite peculiar.

3. Trolls
Did you collect those tiny little troll figurines with colourful hair when you were younger? They are less popular with kids of this generation so they probably won’t recognise these characters but this’ll be a fun film all the same. This is the story of a grumpy troll named Branch (Timberlake), who teams up with the excitable Poppy, on a quest to save all the Trolls from the threat of the Bergens.

This film comes from the makers of Shrek and voices include Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick so it’s sure to be a good one!

In cinemas 21st October 2016

4. Queen of Katwe
Queen of Katwe is a biographical drama brought to the big screen by Disney. This film follows the story of Phiona Mutesi, a Ugandan chess prodigy. She goes on to become a World Candidate Master after an incredible performance at the World Chess Olympiads. This is the inspirational story of a girl who goes from selling corn on the streets to achieving her dreams of being a chess champion. This one will definitely leave your hearts feeling full and full of determination to fight for your dreams.

5. Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them
Lastly, but by no means least, we have the film adaption of J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. Although the book does not take the form of a narrative, they have concocted a story around the magical creatures from the Potter world to make this film. With Eddie Redmayne at the helm, this film will no doubt be a winner, full of mystic and wonder that will stun the kids (and adults!).

The only downside is this film is set in New York, which seems a little silly given Harry Potter’s British roots, but it’s still sure to impress. Not one to miss if you and your kids consider yourselves Potterheads.

In cinemas 18th November 2016
