There were many new movie releases in 2019. Some releases were big and some were small. The top three movies we thought were big this year were Aladdin, Lion King, and Avengers: Endgame. All these movies were anticipated for a long time. Aladdin and Lion King are Disney classics so the remakes were very looked forward to.

All of these movies made it to a spot on the grossing chart. Aladdin made 50.8 million dollars worldwide, and made 214.9 million domestically. Aladdin made it to the second place spot on the grossing chart. The Lion King made 1.617 billion dollars and made it to the ninth spot of the highest grossing films ever. Avengers: Endgame made 2.79 billion dollars worldwide and was ranked the number one movie on the grossing charts.

 The live action Aladdin was released early in the summer. Disney decided to make the animated classic into a live action movie where the story plot was the same as the animated version. It was about a poor boy named Aladdin who one day met a girl named Jasmine, unknowing to the fact that she was the princess. He found a lamp one day which could grant him 3 wishes resulting in a genie friend that played a big part in the movie. 

The Lion King is another Disney classic that was released in 2019. Disney also decided to make a live action version. This movie is about a young lion named Simba, he is the heir of his father Mufasa. Scar, the bad uncle wants to rule the kingdom. Scar ends up killing Mufasa. Simba leaves and later comes back to fight back for the kingdom. 

Avengers: Endgame is another film apart of The Avengers series. It was one of the biggest worldwide film openings. In this movie, the remaining Avengers get together to defeat Thanos again. After they try to find a way to bring back everyone that disappeared.
