2017 was a great year for movies in our house. The Last Jedi, Coco, Cars 3, Dead Men Tell no Tales, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, are just a few of our favorites. And it looks like this year is going to be pretty epic too. The 2018 Walt Disney Studios movie slate has 10 movies I cannot wait to see. It’s a great time to not only be a Disney fan, but a Star Wars, and Marvel one too. Eek! There are a few on this list I have been waiting years for, and I bet you have too.
