The Voyage of Dr. Doolittle

Dr. Doolittle’s getting a new face: Robert Downey Jr.’s face. In 1998, the version of this fun story of a veterinarian who can talk to animals starring Eddie Murphy didn’t do well, according to critics. It will be interesting to see what the new version has in store.

Watch for its debut on January 17.


Disney’s animated version of Mulan was also released back in 1998. And 2020 is also seeing a remake, this time a live-action version.

If you’ve been living under a rock, Mulan is the story of a young Chinese who pretends to be a boy so she can join the army in her father’s place.

Get ready for the thrill on March 27.


Looking for a little magic? You just might find it in this enchanting tale of two brothers on a quest to bring back their dad.

Voiced by Avengers Chris Pratt and Tom Holland, the film is sure to spark your imagination and delight your inner child.

It’s coming out on March 6.


Scooby-Doo has been reinvented a few times over the years. But did you know that the original cartoon series debuted in 1969? Yep! Scooby-Doo is 50 years old!

This pup looks pretty darn good for his age and is still up to his old tricks with his buddies Shaggy, Velma, Fred, and Daphne. Watch for the new antics coming out on May 15.

Artemis Fowl

You may have heard of the Irish author Eoin Coffer’s popular series, Artemis Fowl. Disney is bringing it to the big screen, so get ready!

The story follows a 12-year-old criminal mastermind genius and his bodyguard. The boy is on a quest to find his missing father and a group of fairies.

Put away the healthy snacks for a day and have your popcorn ready for May 29!


On July 10, the Ghostbusters are back! The original ones — Dan Akyroyd, Bill Murray, and Sigourney Weaver — all make an appearance along with a few new friends.

Get ready for some more rousing fun!

The Witches

The special effects might be horrible, but Angelica Huston’s performance in the 1990 adaptation of Roald Dahl’s book is stunning. Now, Anne Hathaway is taking a crack at the role. The special effects are certain to be far more impressive and it will be interesting to see the flair that Hathaway brings to the film.

It’s coming out just in time for Halloween on October 16.
