Fandango polled over 6,000 moviegoers to determine the most anticipated movies of 2022. Which animated films are people most excited to see this year? Hit the jump to find out!
2021 was a rough year for movie studios at the box office. But as we enter 2022 and look at the slate of upcoming films, there's a renewed sense optimism. If the box office success of Spider-Man: No Way Home is any indication, people are ready to return to theaters and Fandango's survey of more than 6,000 moviegoers have determined which they are most excited to see.
Cracking the top ten most anticipated blockbusters of 2022 is Sony's Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One). A sequel to 2018's award winning computer-animated superhero film which saw the big screen debut of Miles Morales joined by multiple Spider-Men from other universes, Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) is the second most anticipated film of the year, checking in behind only Marvel's Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Sony surprised us all last month when they released a first look at Across the Spider-Verse, which will exist as a two-part epic adventure following Miles Morales as he once again travels the Multiverse to join with Gwen Stacy and a new team of Spider-People to take on a villain more powerful than anything they've ever encountered. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) is set to hit theaters exclusively on October 7, 2022.
Pixar's Lightyear is the second most anticipated animated film of 2022. A spin-off of the Toy Story franchise, Lightyear looks to tell the origin story of Buzz Lightyear, the Space Ranger who inspired the toy we all know and love. Lightyear is set to blast off in theaters on June 17, 2022.
Here is the top five most anticipated animated/family movies of 2022:
1. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One)
2. Pixar's Lightyear
3. Minions: The Rise of Gru
4. Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore
