The 10 best family movies of 2021



1. At one week

A teenager with a troubled past agrees to attend a youth summer camp, unaware that he is denominational. There, he discovers romance, the gospel and a second chance in life. At one week is a Disney-style musical featuring contemporary Christian music – old and new. It stars Kevin Quinn (Disney’s Bunk’d, a Christmas love story) and Bailee Madison (Bridge to Terabithia, Good Witch). It includes a powerful message about redemption. Live action. Rated TV-PG.

2. Flora and Ulysses

Flora, a 10-year-old girl who is crazy about superheroes, is shocked to learn that her pet squirrel, Ulysses, has superhero powers. Kind of. He can type. He follows orders. Mostly, he can do things humans can’t – and he’s hilarious. Flora and Ulysses is based on a children’s book and includes solid lessons on hope, optimism, and family. (His parents, separated at the beginning, reconcile at the end of the film.) Live-action. Rated PG for smooth action and themed elements.

3. Luca

Two sea monster boys, disguised as humans, befriend a real human girl in an Italian village with the goal of winning a high-profile children’s triathlon. This Pixar movie was produced for theaters but went straight to Disney Plus due to the pandemic. It includes strong messages about friendship, family, and love for others. Lively. Rated PG for its crass humor, language, some thematic elements, and brief violence.
