The true heroine is cast as the “wicked witch.” The “wicked” witch ended up being a freedom fighter who battles against the mighty wizard for her homeland. This upcoming movie stars the popular singer Ariana Grande and includes Johnathan Bailey.


Sonic the Hedgehog 3 – There isn’t a lot of information about this movie AT ALL that I can find. The 3rd Sonic the Hedgehog movie in the movie franchise is set to release on December 20th, which is VERY late in the year 2024. It’s simply a continuation of the past 2 movies. This animated movie stars Jim Carrey, Idris Elba, and Ben Schwartz as Sonic.

Po ends up realizing heroes can come from very unexpected places. Kung-Fu Panda 4 is set to release on March 8th including voice actor Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogan, and more.

Beginning as a comic strip around 1978, getting a movie in 2004, another movie in 2006, and then a TV show in 2009, Garflied is a widely known name and beloved cat who loves to eat. That being said, there’s a new animated Garfield movie that is set to release on May 24th. Garfield will be voiced by Chris Pratt and Nicholas Hoult as Jon Arbuckle.
