New Kids Movies in Theater This Week


IMDb Rating: 5.9

Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 49%

Wish is a Walt Disney Animation Studios-produced and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures-distributed animated musical fantasy film. The story focuses on Asha, a 17-year-old girl who makes a desperate plea to the stars after sensing a doom in the Kingdom of Rosas that no one else does. The film was supposed to be a little bit of everything—a celebration of the present, a nod to the past, and a little push toward the future—as Disney celebrates its centennial. However, the movie has not left a distinct mark. While the film’s affectionate nods to the studio’s past hit a chord with some viewers, it fails to capture the enchantment of good storytelling, no matter how stunning the animation. So far, the film has earned $48.9 million at the box office against an approximate budget of $175–200 million. If you are bored and want to go out with your children, Wish is a film you should consider watching.

Trolls Band Together

IMDb Rating: 6.0

Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 63%

Trolls Band Together, the animated jukebox musical comedy, is the sequel to the 2020 film Trolls World Tour and is the third instalment in the Trolls film franchise. The third film’s development was formally confirmed in November 2021 by DreamWorks Animation. In March 2023, the movie’s title, new cast members, and characters were all made public. Though primarily composed of computer-generated imagery, the film features certain 2D animation scenes that draw inspiration from Yellow Submarine (1968) and Fantasia (1940) animation techniques. The film references Justin Timberlake’s early boy band hairstyles, notably his perm, braid, and frosted tips. Trolls Band Together is another entertaining and captivating instalment in the Trolls franchise, which will keep young fans entertained while ensuring that parents experience no discomfort whatsoever. As part of Universal’s deal with Netflix, the movie will play on Peacock for the first four months of the pay-TV window. It will then move to Netflix for ten months and then back to Peacock for four more.

PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie, the 2023 Canadian animated superhero comedy film, is based on Keith Chapman’s TV show PAW Patrol. It was the follow-up to PAW Patrol: The Movie 2021.

Christian Corrao voiced Marshall, Luxton Handspiker voiced Rubble, Callum Shoniker voiced Rocky, and Ron Pardo voiced Cap’n Turbot and Mayor Humdinger. The film follows the PAW Patrol as they battle Mayor Humdinger and his new partner, Victoria Vance, in an attempt to safeguard Adventure City, where the puppies’ crystals bestow superpowers.
