After years of anticipation from loyal fans and routine moviegoers alike, follow-up films for numerous movies are in the making for future releases.

Sequels such as “Star Wars Episode VII” and “Finding Dory” are set to hit theaters in 2015 and 2016.

“Finding Dory” is the sequel to the beloved 2003 Pixar film “Finding Nemo” that featured the forgetful blue fish, Dory, voiced by Ellen Degeneres.

“‘Finding Nemo’ was such a big part of my childhood,” Jackie Hornung ’16 said.

Sure to be one of 2015’s most popular movies, “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens,” is the continuation to the George Lucas series, “Star Wars,” most recently in theaters in 2005.

An official trailer released prior to the new year had many fans anxiously waiting for more information on the newest installment.

Among others starring in the film, Harrison Ford is easily the most recognizable name on the cast list.

“Avengers Age of Ultron” is yet another upcoming sequel that has garnered a great deal of attention.

The original Avengers movie was centered around four of Marvel’s most well-known superheroes.

“I’m a huge fan of the series in general,” Vig Namasivayam ’16 said.

He continued, “Each feature is action–packed and the series is very coherent in general, as in each film sets up the preceding films really well.”

Sharing similar sentiments, Anna Eichhorn ’16 said, “I’m really looking forward to seeing ‘The Avengers’ because I love anything with Captain America in it.”

While the lack of quality movies in theaters can often be a source of frustration, it appears as though it will not be an issue this year.

Students can get excited for the return of some of their favorite childhood  movies as these classics re-enter the big screen with brand new sequels.
