Disney animated movie

1. Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation

Unlike its previous episodes, the story of the 3rd episode Summer Vacation happens not in the Hotel Transylvania. Instead, this time it comes to the boundless ocean with a luxurious cruise for their family summer vacation. Of course, this Hollywood animated movie also follows the cliche plot: pursuit - adventure - consummation. Though the plot is not novel enough, there are more new cute cartoon images in this film to attract your kids' attention like the large-sized adorkable poppy Tinkles, the eye-catching Gremlin with big/sharp ears and teeth, a gorgeous nine-tailed fox from ancient Chinese fairy tale, etc. Now, its DVD version is available on Oct.9, 2018. Get it to watch with your kids if you missed this amusing family-themed movie.

2. Incredibles 2 (2018)

The superman-focused animated movie is not all talking about superheroes. This time, it presents more women's right and family value. Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) is now responsible for raising their babies. Instead, Helen (Elastigirl) fulfills the duty to see through the villain's conspiracy and defeat them to save the world.

Certainly, this family animated movie would be monotonous and boring if they only talk about the fighting plots. To make audience feel relaxed, Mr.Incredible actually undertakes the obligation to make you laugh via his daily company with little babies, e.g., wrongly change baby's diaper, pazzled when facing baby's math homework, etc. Incredibles 2 DVD release date is set for November 6, 2018. Go for it at Amazon or rent it at Redbox if it allures you.
