DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming 3D animated film The Boss Baby is all set to hit the cinemas in 2017. The film outlines the life of Tim, a seven-year-old, whose world turns upside down when his parents introduce him to… his baby brother. The ‘first child syndrome’ is a common problem among kids of his age but this ain’t it. Tim’s baby brother is no ordinary baby.
Donning a sharp suit, this new baby seems to be a manipulative, briefcase-carrying, adorable little bossman. He also has a really great fashion sense. Remember how much that sucked? To have your little sibling looking sharp in a suit, making you feel all jealous.
What’s more? This kid talks! And not just that. This baby features the raspy voice of Alec Baldwin. Also featuring the voices of Jimmy Kimmel and Friends star Lisa Kudrow, this movie is directed by Tom McGrath and produced by Ramsey Ann Naito. The Boss Baby is actually based on an eponymous comic by Marla Frazee. From the trailer, however, the film seems pretty much like any other sibling-rivalry film, except the fact that the cocky infant carries some serious cash on him.
The film will be released on March 31, 2017. Too far? Well, if you’re looking for some animated film to take kids to, Disney’s Moana is all set for its release next month.

Moana will be featuring the voices of newcomer Auli’i Cravalho and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who voices Maui, a demigod who accompanies Moana on her adventurous journey. The film releases on November 23, 2016.
