2009’s Family Movie Coming Attractions: Harry, Miley, and More

posted by Nell Minow

The movie slate for 2009 has some upcoming family-friendly releases that look very promising.

“Inkheart,” based on the book by Cornelia Funke and opening January 23, stars Brendan Fraser as a man who has the power to bring the characters from books to life.

In March we have “Race to Witch Mountain,” not a remake but a sort of semi-sequel to the Disney classics Escape to Witch Mountain and Return from Witch Mountain. Duane “The Rock” Johnson plays a man who has to protect two children with mysterious powers from the bad guys who want to capture them.

I am really looking forward to the April release of the new Hannah Montana movie!

And of course we’re already counting the moments until Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, coming out in July.

    We rely heavily on this site as family to know what is appropriate for our children, ages 13, 9, and 6. We especially like the comments that tell us what to expect since we are covering such a wide age span. Can you do the same for books??

    I wish I could cover books, movies, television, and games, but that would require a staff. I can recommend Common Sense Media. Thanks so much for the kind words!
