Calendar of Family and Children's Movies (2009)

By

Here is a list of the year's new family/kids movie releases. Most of the movies included are rated G or PG, but with the recent explosion of PG-13 titles that are aimed at families and kids (superhero movies, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean...), I have included some PG-13 titles so parents are aware of the dates and can find out more about them. Also, it is interesting to note that the surge in 3D movies continues. Check your local theaters to find out which ones offer movies in 3D.
