2018 was a great year for movies! So many amazing ones that I love, especially from Disney and Marvel. I was also blessed with a couple of trips to LA for Incredibles 2 press junket and The Nutcracker and the Four Realms press junket. Both were fantastic. I have so many movies I am looking forward to in 2019 – especially Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel, and Aladdin! My kids are very excited about Artemis Fowl, Dumbo and The Lion King too! Really, they all look so good!
Here are the Walt Disney Studios movies coming out in 2019:
