Walt Disney Studios has released its full schedule of 2014 movies and it should easily challenge their record-breaking box office year of 2013. With a mix of their classic animation, Marvel superheroes and even sports stories in the vein of their previous releases such as Invincible and Miracle, 2014 looks to be a banner year for the Mouse House.
Things get started when Disney releases the English language version of one of The Top 10 Animated Movies of 2013, The Wind Rises. They follow that up with Need for Speed, based on the popular video game. Then, a sequel Movie Fanatic cannot wait for arrives in March with Muppets Most Wanted.
We’ve run a slew of Captain America: The Winter Soldier photos of late, and that is no surprise as the good Captain comes back on April 4. Celebrating Earth Day, as Disney Nature does so well, arrives in the form of Bears on April 18. We just got a Million Dollar Arm trailer, and it shows off Jon Hamm in a true story about a baseball guy who heads to India looking for the next great star.
One of what has to be the most anticipated titles for Disney in 2014 arrives on May 30 with Angelina Jolie as Maleficent. Planes gets a sequel in mid-summer and Marvel unveils its newest crop of superheroes with Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1.
Four other films fill out the remainder of the schedule, including one you’ll hear about a lot more in the future as Movie Fanatic visited the set of the Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner-starring Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
