Born in China
Disneynature presents its most ambitious project to date, taking moviegoers on a grand journey into the wilds of China.
Following the stories of three animal families, the film allows audiences to witness some of the most intimate moments ever captured in a nature film.

A two-year-old golden monkey who feels displaced by his new baby sister joins up with a group of free-spirited outcasts.

The Lego Batman Movie
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble - LEGO Batman - stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker's hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
Will Arnett reprises his starring role from The LEGO Movie as the voice of LEGO Batman, aka Bruce Wayne. Zach Galifianakis stars as The Joker; Michael Cera as the orphan Dick Grayson, aka Robin; Rosario Dawson as Barbara Gordon; and Ralph Fiennes as Alfred.
"It's a story with heart, heady humor and action - parts that snap together, with a satisfying click, like, well, you know what." Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
