5 Family-Friendly Movie Marathons for Your Next Road Trip
When the drive is long, the view becomes monotonous, and the activities wind down, road trips can get pretty tedious. It can get even worse for kids as they tend to grow restless and rowdy during these car rides.

Prepare for your next road trip movie marathon with these five recommended family-friendly themes:
1. Girl Power
Celebrate the age of equality with films focused on girl bosses. Start with the live-action adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, which follows Alice as she explores a world of fantasy with a mad hatter, quarreling queens, and a talking rabbit. Continue the adaptation streak with Maleficent, the origin story of the fearsome villain in Sleeping Beauty. Go back in time with Brave and meet Merida, a young princess who is set on redefining what it means to be a Disney Princess. Go inside the mind of a girl in Inside Out, quite literally, where her five emotions help her navigate teenage life. Then close your marathon with Frozen and sing your heart out with two sisters in an ice kingdom.
If you’re traveling with a group of friends, you can watch friendship-themed movies and strengthen your bond before you get to your destination. Start with the Toy Story trilogy and see how a group of toys become good friends. Follow that up with the friendship of Mike and Sully in Monsters Inc. and its prequel Monsters University, where they’re monsters who scare kids to harness energy. Next on the list is A Bug’s Life, about a group of cute insects who must save an ant’s colony. After that, travel to France and meet Remy, a rat who can cook delicious meals in Ratatouille, as he befriends the human Alfredo Linguini. Lastly, visit the prehistoric times in The Good Dinosaur and discover the friendship between a dinosaur and a human.
3. Life in the Outer Space
If space is more your thing, there’s a galaxy far, far away perfect for your taste. Explore the galaxy with the Star Wars franchise and rediscover the fight between good and evil in a galaxy far, far away. Start with The Empire Strikes Back and follow it up with Return of the Jedi, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith.
4. Heroes in Action
For something a little more action-packed, superhero films are for you! Watch Big Hero 6, and see how a young robotics prodigy forms a team to fight a masked villain. Stream Bolt, a young dog who rescues his human. Of course there’s also the Marvel Cinematic Universe where you meet Tony Stark in the Iron Man trilogy; the god of thunder in Thor and Thor: The Dark World; Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: Winter Soldier; and, Star-Lord and his crew in Guardians of the Galaxy. Watch them get together to defeat villainous forces in The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron!
5. A Taste for Adventure
Get hyped for your trip even before you arrive! Start your marathon with Up, which follows Carl as he goes on a mission in South America accompanied by the ever-lovable Russell. Complete the marathon with the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, where the pirate Jack Sparrow goes on a series of swashbuckling quests in Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man’s Chest, At World’s End, and On Stranger Tides.
