My Must See Movies | Late 2016-2017

What can I say? I’m flabbergasted! I usually am not that interested in movies (I’ve always been more of a TV kinda gal), but late 2016 and early 2017 is shaping up to be an astounding season for movies and a ton of films that I’m interested in are being released all at once! From cute Disney princess films to action packed marvel films to films that “look like a contemporary YA novel”, filmmakers are pulling out all the stops and they sure have gotten my attention! Here are the films releasing in late 2016 and in 2017 that I’m most interested in!



It’s the newest Disney princess and it’s diverse–how could I not go see it? How could I not love it? We still don’t know much about the storyline of this movie, but it’s got my attention. Plus, the animation and art looks absolutely beautiful!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them


Okay, this one is probably the most obvious. It’s a new film in the Harry Potter world, co-written by J.K. Rowling. Obviously I’m gonna see it. But it does look like it’s shaping up to be stunning–in visuals and in its story! I’m so excited to see this one!

Doctor Strange


I’m a newbie Marvel fan, but this looks fan-freaking-tastic! It’s like Marvel meets Inception! Which sounds incredible to me!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story


I’m also a Star Wars newb, but The Force Awakens was my favorite movie so far this year, so I have high hopes for Rogue One. This movie looks like it has a great storyline and incredible actors! I like that it centers around a female rebel too, that just makes my little feminist heart beat with glee!

The Edge of Seventeen


In the words of my fellow blogger Kat, “This looks like a YA contemporary novel!” It really does and it looks so awesome and funny and heartbreaking and heartwarming!

Beauty and the Beast


Its Disney. Its Emma Watson and Dan Stevens. How could I say no?

Wonder Woman


I’m also a DC newb, but this movie looks so freaking amazing! Talk about girl power! Gal Gadot looks like she’ll make one fierce Wonder Woman (regardless of what crittics say about her weight! ugh, that was such a stupid critique!)! I can’t wait!

  1. I absolutely LOVE that you quoted me here 😀 thank you so much for the pingback! And you chose great movies, because those are all my must-sees as well. I just wonder how I will handle my budget now, because I can’t keep buying books at this rate AND go to the movies to see all of those films. They are definitely films that need to be seen on the big screen though … it’s the eternal dilemma.

  2. Great list. I am ridiculously excited about Beauty and the Beast. I absolutely loved Cinderella and actually prefer the story behind Beauty so it should be fantastic.

    I’d add to your list A Monster Calls. I can’t wait to see how they do it.
