A Quiet Place: Part II
Release Date: March 20th
Updated Release Date: TBA
    Emily Blunt’s character Evelyn Abbott narrowly survived the first Quiet Place movie. Much of the film was spent evading or fighting alien monsters that relied on their sense of hearing to hunt. Considering that not all of the first movie’s main characters survived, it came as an exciting surprise that there would be a sequel. Still, not much is known about the plot as horror movies often rely on suspense and the fear of the unknown. What we do know is that Blunt’s character will truly get a chance to shine as she faces much more than monsters.

Updated Release Date: TBA
    This unique film is going to be a chance for Disney to retell the iconic story of Mulan. However, this version will forego the original film’s incredible Westernization and inaccuracies regarding the legend of Mulan. Many of the well-known songs will not be included and even fan favorite, Mushu the dragon, will not make an appearance so that the film can focus on the traditional story. Audiences are still guaranteed to love this new Disney live action film when they see Lui Yifei as Mulan, who hides her true identity in order to fearlessly fight for her country and family.
