Stars and Stripes New Braunfels presents... Aladdin!

Stars & Stripes New Braunfels is gettin’ genie wit it as Walt Disney Studios conjures up the live-action remake of a beloved animated classic! Directed by Guy Ritchie, it’s Aladdin!

 

The film follows Mena Massoud as the titular diamond in the rough who attempts to win the heart of  the beautiful Princess Jasmine, played by Naomi Scott. Of course, you can’t have an Aladdin remake without a big blue genie, and who better to take on the iconic role than film icon himself, Will Smith!

 

When faced with the task of filling the shoes of Robin Williams, who voiced the Genie in the animated original, Smith admits that he was, of course, intimidated. “At the end of the day,” Smith stated, “It was the music where I saw that I could honor the nostalgia, and I could pay homage to Robin, but then also be able to add my new flavor.” Speaking of the music, Aladdin features brand new renditions of the original’s classic songs, as well as a few new pieces composed by Disney Legend Alan Menken.

 

So hop on your magic carpet, elephant, or… probably just your car and enjoy a fun-filled night under the stars watching Disney’s Aladdin at Stars & Stripes New Braunfels! Click the link below for your tickets!

The game is afoot at Stars and Stripes New Braunfels, …and the foot is actually a tiny yellow paw because we’re talking about Pokémon: Detective Pikachu!

 

Based on the video game of the same name, the first ever live-action Pokémon film tells the story everyone’s favorite yellow Pokémon who, while not the best at battling in the arena, is gifted with some self-proclaimed detective skills. Those skills are put to the test when Pikachu teams up with a former Pokémon trainer named Tim Goodman to track down Tim’s missing father. Traditionally, most Pokémon are only able to say their own name, but in a Doctor Dolittle-esque twist, Tim is actually able to understand Detective Pikachu, who much to the delight of fans, is voiced by Ryan Reynolds of recent Deadpool fame. Our two heroes’ investigation leads them on an adventure filled with encounters from the famous creatures that have been all the rage with audiences since their debut more than 20 years ago!

 

You gotta catch Pokémon: Detective Pikachu and you gotta catch it at Stars and Stripes New Braunfels! Click the link below to get your tickets today!

Stars and Stripes New Braunfels presents... Avengers: Endgame!

April 19th, 2019
Categories: 

It’s an epic event eleven years in the making at Stars and Stripes New Braunfels with the next highly-anticipated installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Avengers: Endgame!

As Tony Stark said in 2012’s The Avengers, our heroes might not be able to save the world, but they WILL avenge it! Now here we are, several films later, and that scenario has finally come true. The Avengers were not able to save the world from the big baddie Thanos in last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, so now it’s time for the team to live up to their name and avenge it. Of course, simply saying that the Avengers were ‘unable to save the world’ is putting it mildly as the supervillain Thanos actually wiped out half of all life in the entire universe! Wondering if and how our heroes are able to right such a monumental wrong is probably what makes Endgame one of the most anticipated movies of the year.

As most people probably already know, the film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johannson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, and Mark Ruffalo as everyone’s favorite superhero team. Also tagging along is Paul Rudd as Ant-Man and Brie Larson as the most recent addition to the MCU, Captain Marvel!

21 action-packed films in the last 11 years have all been leading up to this moment, and there’s no better place to enjoy that moment than Stars and Stripes New Braunfels! Click the link below and get your tickets to Avengers: Endgame today!

Stars and Stripes New Braunfels presents... Shazam!

March 30th, 2019
Categories: 

It’s a night of super-powered fun for the kid in all of us as Stars and Stripes New Braunfels presents the latest installment in the DC Extended Universe, Shazam!

 

The film tells the story of 14-year-old Billy Batson who, after performing a heroic deed, is magically gifted with superhuman abilities which transform him into an adult superhero every time he says the magic word, ‘Shazam.’ As fun as that premise sounds, however, there’s also some good comic book peril in store for Billy as he’s forced to take on the evil super-villain, Dr. Sivana! What’s a superhero without a nemesis?

 

Like most comic book superheroes, Shazam’s roots go all the way back to the 1940’s, only rather than Shazam, the magical man-child went by the name of Captain Marvel. Due to decades of obvious trademark conflicts with Marvel Comics’ character of the same name, DC officially changed the name of Billy’s alter-ego to Shazam in 2011 and it’s a good thing they did. With the MCU also giving their Captain Marvel a big-screen adaptation, watching superhero movies in 2019 might have been a little confusing for audiences. 

 

Oh! And here’s another fun piece of movie trivia. Both Shazam! and Captain Marvel feature Djimon Hounsou in a supporting role.

 

From Warner Bros. Studios and DC Comics, it’s Shazam! and it’s playing at Stars and Stripes New Braunfels! There’s no magic word you need to say to get your tickets, just click the link below!

Stars and Stripes New Braunfels presents... Dumbo!

March 22nd, 2019
Categories: 

Spring is in full bloom at Stars and Stripes New Braunfels! It’s a season of renewal, and that’s definitely the case at Walt Disney Studios as they roll out their latest live-action remake of a beloved animated classic, Dumbo!

 

Where the original 1941 Dumbo was primarily a series of animated vignettes focusing on the titular big-eared elephant and his life at the circus, this newest version, directed by Tim Burton, adds more of a human element to the story. Set in a time where three ring circuses are fading into obscurity, Dumbo tells the tale of a small family who are tasked by the circus ringmaster with caring for a newborn elephant with oversized ears. But after the discovery that the elephant is actually capable of flying, the circus, and its diverse crew of workers, receive a sudden resurgence in popularity. As was the case with its animated predecessor, Dumbo instills the belief that no matter who we are, or where we come from, we’re all capable of greatness.

 

Besides Dumbo himself, the film also features a lineup of circus-sized talent. Colin Farrell, Eva Green, Danny Devito, and Michael Keaton all star. For Devito and Keaton, as well director Tim Burton, Dumbo marks a reunion of sorts as the first time the two actors have starred opposite together since Burton’s Batman Returns. The two veteran actors undergo a role-reversal of sorts this time around, however, as Devito trades the villainous persona of The Penguin for the lovable aging ringmaster Max Medici opposite Keaton’s sinister business tycoon V.A. Vandevere.

 

It promises to be a night of high-flying fun at Stars and Stripes New Braunfels! Click the link below to get your tickets for Dumbo!

Stars and Stripes New Braunfels presents... Captain Marvel!

Stars and Stripes New Braunfels is going higher, further, and faster as Marvel Studios serves up the newest addition in their beloved cinematic universe, Captain Marvel!

The year is 1995. The Dot-Com Boom hits, Michael Jordan returns to the NBA, and in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a shape-shifting alien race known as the Skrull invade the planet! That’s quite a lot going on, and it’s up to U.S. Air Force pilot turned cosmic superhero Carol Danvers to swoop in and save the world from an intergalactic war! Captain Marvel boasts an all-star cast including Academy Award Winner Brie Larson in the lead, as well as Jude Law, Annette Bening, Ben Mendelsohn, and last but never least, Samuel L. Jackson as everyone’s favorite super-spy, Nick Fury!

Fans will no doubt remember the post credits scene from last year’s Avengers: Infinity War where Agent Fury uses a souped-up 1990’s pager to send out a call for help. Captain Marvel takes audiences back in time and delivers the story behind said page. Since the film does take place in the 90’s, Executive Producer Kevin Feige promises an atmosphere unlike what we’ve grown accustomed to with the MCU. Setting the story in an era before the emergence of superheroes serves as a way to let Captain Marvel “carve out her own space in the Cinematic Universe,” as well as deliver a Nick Fury who’s not so well-versed in super people. Plus, characters like Ronan, Korath, and Agent Phil Coulson are able to show up! Because, SPOILER ALERT, they haven’t died yet!

The good times are alive and kicking at Stars and Stripes New Braunfels! Click the link below to get your tickets and BLAST OFF for Marvel’s Captain Marvel! Oh hey… You think the studio realized they used their own name twice? Oh well.

New Braunfels' Stars & Stripes Drive-In presents... The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

January 28th, 2019
Categories: 

     Everything is Awesome at New Braunfels' Stars and Stripes Drive-In Theatre as Emmett, Lucy, Batman and the rest of their minifigure friends return for Lego Movie 2: The Second Part! In case you couldn’t tell from the title, it’s a sequel.

     The film picks up five years after the events of The Lego Movie, where the bustling city of Brickopolis has since been overrun by invaders from the planet Duplo, leaving it a post-apocalyptic wasteland… but… you know? The fun kind. While the first film featured a cast of the toy line’s traditional minifigure characters, the sequel looks to incorporate characters from other Lego toy lines as well. This proved a challenge for the filmmakers who, wishing to keep the same type of movement and articulation as the actual toys, had to find creative solutions for combining the different types into one believable world. Choreographers were also brought in to create a routine incorporating the restricted movement of the different characters for “The Catchy Song,” a new number whose only line is “This song is gonna get stuck inside your head.”

No doubt it will do just that.

 

     You’ll want to assemble your family together at New Braunfels' Stars and Stripes for this fun-filled adventure of mini proportions. Click the link below to get your tickets today!
