Here's a classic story that parents will love as much as the kids. George of the Jungle is a 1997 Tarzan-esque story that follows the humorous George, a man raised by wild animals after surviving a crash in the jungle as a baby. Leading a charmingly klutzy life with his animal friends, George's peaceful existence is disrupted when he rescues and falls for a wealthy American heiress named Ursula Stanhope. This is a witty, goofy comedy the whole family will enjoy.
An imaginative Pixar animated film set in a parallel monster world, Monsters Inc. will ensure your kids will never be afraid of monsters in the closet again. The storyline features furry, adorable monsters who believe children are dangerous and whose lives take a turn when a human child named Boo accidentally crosses over to their world. A classic tale about friendship, thankfully, good eventually triumphs evil, and the film ends on a happy note.
A timeless classic, your kids will adore the story of Simba, a young lion cub who yearns to succeed his father, Mufasa, as king. A poignant storyline featuring betrayal, loss, friendship, and bravery, the fantastic soundtrack and hilarious quotes in The Lion King will enthral the little ones.
Avatar: The Way of Water is the sequel to the groundbreaking film Avatar. It follows Jake Sully, a human turned Na'vi and his family, who face renewed threats from humans on their lush alien planet Pandora. In search of refuge, they turn to the aquatic Metkayina tribe. The sequel is the third highest-grossing film of all time — so you can bet it's worth a watch.
