I love The Jungle Book and James and the Giant Peach. The other three I haven’t seen yet. But if BFG is like the Jungle Book I’ll have to check it out when it’s released in theaters.
I love the Jungle book since I was a kid, I’ve watched it. You have nice picks here. I will check the other movies.
James and the Giant Peach was one of my favorites as a child. I need to find that movie and buy it. I would love to let my girls watch it. I haven’t seen it in years!
Nice suggestions! The Jungle Book has always been a fave of mine. I’m trying to find some time to dive into the world of Percy Jackson, should be fun.
I still need to see a lot of these. The Jungle Book trailer looked great. My daughter actually saw the movie recently.
Great list of movies for summer movie nights by the fire if you ask me! So fun!
Oh man, James and the Giant Peach brings me back to my childhood! Those are some fantastic movies you’ve got on your list.
OMG Tin Tin is back lol, I never heard of the Giant Peach movie I will have to find it ad enjoy this summer with the little ones 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
I have a fondness for James and the Giant Peach. My 3rd grade teacher read us the book and I’ve always loved it. One of my favorite movies is Pete’s Dragon. I know they are remaking it this year and I hope it is as good as the original.
James and the Giant Peach is one of those classics that I’ll never grow out of.
I missed out on The Jungle Book. I have heard and read so many great reviews of the film. Once this is available on DVD/BluRay, I will get a copy. Marking my calendar for The BFG. I will make sure I do not miss out on this too.
I’d like to take the kids to see some of these. We went to see the Angry Birds movie on Friday at our local theater and the kids saw the previews for The Jungle Book and I promised to take them to see it. I’ve seen them before and knew they’d love it.
These do indeed all look like great movies. The Big Friendly Giant and The Witches are the ones I can’t wait to see. Thanks for sharing the list.
I’ve seen all of these, the kids loved them too. They are definitely worth watching. I haven’t seen BFG though and I’m excited to watch it with the kids!
