A Dog’s Journey, May 17th

Calling all dog lovers! A Dog’s Journey, the sequel to A Dog’s Purpose, is set to be released in theatres May 17th. The sequel follows Ethan, his wife Hannah, their granddaughter CJ, and, their dog Bailey. When CJ’s mom unexpectedly takes CJ away, Bailey promises Ethan that he will find CJ in his next life and protect her. Bailey ventures through many lives with CJ filled with love, laughter, and adventure.

Toy Story 4, June 21st

As a kid, I always loved the Toy Story series, so I am very excited for Toy Story 4. The story returns with Woody and the rest of the toys when they are brought along on a roadtrip with Bonnie and her new toy Forky. They run into trouble when Forky, who has no desire to be a toy, escapes. While trying to find Forky, Woody is reunited with his long-lost friend Bo Peep. When catching up they begin to realize they have different values and expectations in life as a toy.

Yesterday, June 28th

I am most interested in seeing Yesterday, because of its unique storyline. Jack loves music but he is a struggling artist, and one of the only things keeping his passion alive is the motivation of his best friend, Ellie. One day, Jack gets hit by a bus during a mysterious global blackout, and wakes up to find out The Beatles never existed. Jack begins to sing the songs as if they were his, and becomes an overnight sensation.
