Disney just released the Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Slate for 2016 and I am beyond excited for this year. One of my goals for this coming year is to go to the movies more because I LOVE movie popcorn and a good flick. Disney has went over and above again this year with some amazing movies in the works and I cannot wait to catch them all. My childhood favorite is in the mix — and I knew NOTHING about it!!
Check out the list below and tell me which one you are most excited about seeing?

But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.
