It's time for my favorite post of the year: my annual list of family-friendly movie releases! Every year, I take a couple hours and put together a list of all the family-friendly movies that will be coming out for the year (you can check out past lists here). This really is my favorite post because I truly love going to the movies with my family. There is no shortage of kid-friendly movies coming out in 2017!  I have 20 on the list!

This year we have everything from the return of Lightning McQueen to the much-anticipated live-action Beauty and the Beast and more minions. 2017 is jam-packed of kid-friendly movie fun!!
