Perfect family-friendly films to watch this Christmas

December 17, 2016

It is a tradition for many to gather the family together and cuddle-in to watch a film on a cold winter’s evening, or rainy afternoon – especially over the festive season.  Our TV guides are filled with all the classic and memorable movies that the whole family can enjoy. We have listed some of our favourite family-friendly films for you to look out for during the festive break. Mary Poppins A fun and easy film to watch, Mary Poppins combines music, fun and comedy into one notable and classic film. A great movie for all of the family to enjoy, Mary Poppins invites you to her magical adventures whilst caring for the Bank's household and children. To describe the film in one word it would have to be: supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe A wonderful adaptation of the classical Chronicles of Narnia novel series. The film explores the adventures of four British children who are evacuated during the Blitz. They are taken to the countryside, and during a game of hide and seek, the youngest sibling finds herself hiding in a wardrobe that leads to the fantasy world of Narnia, who are then chosen to fight against the White Witch. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone The first film of the Harry Potter novel series, Harry Potter is in his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. As he discovers his magical history, he is faced with the comeback dark wizard Lord Voldemort, who killed Harry's parents. A fantastic movie. Alice in Wonderland Directed by Tim Burton, Alice in Wonderland takes a modern twist on the modern classic. Nineteen-year-old Alice revisits the magical wonderland of her childhood adventure. She rekindles with familiar faces and friends, but later realising her destiny is to end the Red Queen's reign. Bedknobs and Broomsticks A wonderful and charming move to enjoy on a Sunday afternoon with family. Including the characters of an apprentice witch, three children and a cynical conman who are searching for the missing component to a magic spell, which could be useful to the defense of Britain. Inside Out Another brilliant addition to the Pixar library, Inside Out explores a smart yet entertaining story of the on-goings inside a young girl’s head. In a unique and insightful way, the film visits the realms of our emotions: joy, fear, anger, disgust and sadness. After Riley moves to San Francisco, her emotions begin to conflict against coping with a new house, school and city. Nanny McPhee A lovely family comedy. After the loss of his wife, Mr. Cedric Brown is left with his seven unruly children. After hiring the help of numerous nannies, Mr Brown is told by a mysterious voice to hire the help of Nanny McPhee. At first, the children begin their usual antics of trying to get rid of the new nanny. But it soon becomes apparent, Nanny McPhee isn't like the others they have tormented. Never let a rainy Sunday afternoon become boring again. Pop on one of these timeless film classics with the family and a bowl of popcorn - enjoy!
