Movie Update: McFarland and Cinderella
On January 2nd, we shared with you the 2015 Disney movie slate so you could plan ahead and start looking forward to what was to come. After we had a chance to see it at the theater, we gave you a few reasons why we enjoyed Strange Magic. (Hint: the soundtrack is awesome!) This time, we’re going a step further and giving you some teasers and additional information on movies that are about to be released. After all, seeing a movie on opening weekend usually means you get to see it on the largest and nicest screen in the theater. Beyond that, you’re at the mercy of timing and the theater manager as to how big of a “big” screen you get to see it on.
This weekend marks the release the next major motion picture from the Disney lineup: McFarland, USA. The movie, featuring Kevin Costner and a mix of talented young athletes, is based on the true story of a team of cross country runners in an economically challenged town in California’s farm region. The drama shares stories of family, commitment and work ethic mixed with grit and determination.
Be sure to check out Race to McFarland for a chance to win $2500!
Don’t forget to mark your calendar for the next great Disney movie? Cinderella is scheduled to open March 13th. We’ll bring you more details on that as the movie gets closer to release date.
Who is ready for movie night?!

LOVE Kevin Costner in ever movie he has ever been in, and I bet this one I’ll like too. Not sure my little boy will go see Cinderella with me…may have to take my grand daughter.
We saw the pre-screening for McFarland last week. It was such a great movie! Can’t wait for Cinderella. My favorite princess!
Thanks for the info! “Cinderella” for my little grandgals and me!
I really like that trailer for McFarland, USA. I had no idea what it was about before this. A subject that hits home for me.
Oh Cinderella please! I can’t wait to see this with my girls. I hate going to the movie theater but am super excited to go for Cinderella.
McFarland is such a GREAT movie! I have seen it twice already! My whole family loved it. (ages 3+) I can’t wait for Cinderella to come out. My kids are going to love it too!
Sounds like a great movie. Can’t wait to see it (although I will most likely wait until it comes on Netflix or Amazon Prime) but I will definitely see it!
My daughter cannot wait to see Cinderella, she loves anything princess related!
This seems like such a wonderful family film! I can not wait to see this with my family, and I love Kevin Costner!
I’m absolutely LOVING these new Disney films. I can’t wait to see Cinderella, McFarland, and Tomorrowland.
I’ve been a Costner fan for years, but some of his movies lately have been a little sketchy. But McFarland looks like a winner. Thank goodness! This looks exactly like the kind of movie that Kevin should have been making all along.
The McFarland movie sounds inspirational and one I would enjoy seeing. Of course Cinderella has always been my favorite of all favorites. I may have to sneak in there all by my lonesome to see that!
I am planning on seeing this with my son. It sounds like it has a good message.
I actually want to see both of those films. I love anything Kevin Costner is in and Cinderella looks masterful.
Sounds like a chick flick for sure. I’ll have to see if my teen daughter wants to go with me.
I like Kevin Costner in his older more mature roles. And I love the idea that this is not a baseball or football movie, too.
That looks like a fun movie. I’m excited about the Cinderella movie too. Someone asked me how many times they can remake a movie, but I like all the recent remakes.
Can’t wait for Cinderella. All great movies.
The trailers for this movie have really piqued my curiosity. I can’t wait to see it.
I really want to see Strange Magic myself! Hope it comes here soon! And Cinderella is another must!
Did you see our post about Strange Magic, Joanna? The music is fantastic! I actually linked to the music in the post because I love it THAT much. LOL Here’s the link:
