If you have little girls in the house, chances are they are Frozen mad. So they will definitely want to see the first trailer for Disney’s Frozen Fever, an animated short that will be shown in cinemas in front of the new Disney live action movie Cinderella.
Cinderella opens in the UK on March 27 so you’ll be able to catch the whole of Frozen Fever then.
It’s Academy Awards time again, and tonight from 1.30am (UK), if you follow me on twitter @movies4kids you’ll get all the awards news as it happens, and probably some grumpiness from me when my favourites don’t win!
If you have any children in the house under the age of five, chances are you know exactly who Peppa Pig is, and why 14th February is very important to her fans. Yes, everyone’s favourite muddy-puddle loving pig from Channel 5’s Milkshake! on children’s TV is making her big screen debut, appearing in a 15-minute special episode called The Golden Boots that is being shown in cinemas from Valentine’s Day for half term week.
The Golden Boots is being shown with five favourite Peppa Pig episodes and entertainment clips from the Milkshake! presenters to give an hour of fun for kids. It’s a great chance for parents to take their littlest ones to the cinema for the first time, perhaps, especially if the running time of a regular movie seems too daunting for your toddler to sit through.
Check out the trailer below for some Peppa Pig fun:

Pop on over to the main Movies4Kids site and you’ll find reviews for this week’s new releases, the sci-fi adventure Jupiter Ascending and the woolly comedy Shaun The Sheep The Movie. There are also some fun things for Shaun The Sheep fans to do here.
And check out trailers for both the movies below:
Minions, the Despicable Me spin-off featuring our favourite yellow, banana-loving creatures, opens in the UK on June 26th. It’s already one of the most anticipated kids movies of the summer, and to get you ready, here’s a brand new trailer – released today!
Avengers: Age Of Ultron isn’t the only Marvel movie we’re getting this year, there is also the intriguing Ant-Man, with Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd in an adventure about a man who can, you guessed it, shrink to the size of an ant.
Above is the rather cool teaser poster (can you spot Ant-Man?!) and below, we’ve got a photo from the film and the trailer, too…
Very sad to hear of the death of Australian-born actor Rod Taylor, who passed away on Wednesday in Los Angeles at the age of 84. He is, of course, best known for his leading role alongside Tippi Hedren in Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, but my favourite performance of his will always be as H George Wells in The Time Machine (1960). If you’ve got kids interested in science fiction and time travel, they’ll love it (although the under-10s may find the Morlocks a bit scary!)
Younger viewers may have already heard his voice, as Taylor provided the vocals for Pongo in One Hundred And One Dalmatians, while grown ups should check out his performances in the Doris Day romantic comedy The Glass Bottom Boat, a turn as Churchill in Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, and, of course, The Birds.
