There's two other films confirmed for this year, but no confirmed release date. Don't worry, they probably suck. Right now, the only ones I'm really aching to see this year are The Lego Batman Movie and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (and maybe Animal Crackers, if only for how bad it will probably be).

I would see the lego movies.  I'm actually more excited about Ninjago than Batman cause man that tv show was great.  I can't believe they are actually going to make a MLP movie that's not Equestria Girls.  Also I hope the Captain Undertale movie knows that by calling their movie the first movie their jinxing themselves of potentially not having a second.  I've only seen that jinx fail one time and that's with Pokemon.

The Smurfs movie, Cars 3, Despicable Me 3, the emoji movie, and the nut job 2 can go *bleep* themselves .

I'm actually looking forward to Cars 3. It looks pretty interesting so far.

I also don't like the premise of Captain Underpants. Why are they high school kids now? The series is aimed at elementary school children, and the original book is set in elementary school.

Then again, Wikipedia also contradicts this synopsis by saying it will take place in elementary school and the kids will be 10 years old.

Make up your mind.

I didn't even catch that (I pretty much just copypasted the premises from Wikipedia). The trailers show them as they are in the books, and like you said, Wikipedia themselves later say they're in elementary school. In addition, this npr podcast talks about the movie and includes a soundbite of Ed Helms playing Mr. Krupp where he clearly calls it an elementary school. I think it's safe to say "high school" is probably an error, though on whose part I don't know, as a few other sources also use the words high school.

Just a few notes on the MLP movie I want to share.

Season 7 of the main show is slated to start in April this year. The reason I bring up the show is because it's very likely Season 7 will still be going by the time the Movie is released in theaters. Cause it's been confirmed to be a full 26-episode season. The only way they could of timed it well enough with the former Spring release date is if the Season started on the very first Saturday of Spring. And then 23 straight weeks of new episodes. Though even then. The movie would be out one day before the Season 7 Finale. But since it starts in April and there hasn't been a season without some kind of 1 or 2 month long break since Season 4 there will likely be some amount of episodes still to air after the movie makes it.

So I don't know how much Season 7 will really connect to the movie. Though it's possible some minor connections could make it in.

I do know that most of the people still around that worked on Seasons 1-5 are focusing on the movie. While 6-7 may be lead by a sort of B-team that's keeping the show going while the higher-ups are focused on the movie. (Which may explain why Season 6 got it's mixed reception. It definitely wasn't quite as popular in the fanbase as previous seasons.)
