Get ready for sweaty kids with too much free time, because summer is just around the corner! And what better way to pass the day then relaxing in the sweet, sweet respite of movie theater air conditioning? 

Think of this list as your ultimate release guide for all the kids' movies headed to theaters this summer. All six of these movies promise to bring the laughs and the feels – perfect for you and your youngins'. Though, you don't need kids to see all of these upcoming movies. With Incredibles 2 and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom on the list, theaters will be catering to audiences of all ages. 

So, grab a bucket of popcorn and soak in that free air conditioning, because for the next four months the movie theater will be relaxation station.

1. Show Dogs

Release date: May 18

To catch a gang of animal smugglers, police dog Max (voiced by Ludacris) must partner with FBI agent Frank (Will Arnett) to go undercover as a contestant at a ritzy Las Vegas dog show. Max gathers intel on the smugglers from his fellow dog show canines, voiced by the likes of Shaquille O'Neal, Stanley Tucci, and Alan Cumming.

2. Incredibles 2 

Release date: June 15

Pixar's highly-anticipated sequel to The Incredibles will supposedly pick up where the last movie left off. While Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) jets off to fight crime, Mr. Incredible attempts to hold down the fort at home – which is harder said than done, given baby Jack-Jack's enigmatic powers. When a new villain known as Screensaver is introduced, the family will once again be forced to work together.

3. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Release date: June 22

Fair warning: even though Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom doesn't have a rating yet, expect it to be PG-13 like its predecessor (meaning it probably won't be the best flick for young kiddos). The follow-up to 2015's Jurassic World, this latest installment once again stars Chris Pratt as dinosaur trainer Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard as former park manager Claire Dearing. When Isla Nublar is threatened by a volcano, Owen and Claire must find a way to rescue and relocate the prehistoric creatures to safety.

4. Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation 

Release date: July 13

The monster gang is back in 3D when Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation hits theaters in mid-July. Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Steve Buscemi, Selena Gomez, and Fran Drescher will all reprise their roles as members of the "Drac Pack." This time around, the quirky monster friends are setting sail on a luxury Monster Cruise Ship for a little summer getaway.

5. Teen Titans Go! To the Movies 

Release date: July 27

Teen Titans is headed to the big screen, with Will Arnett and Kristen Bell both lending their voices to the animated comedy. When the ragtag team of superheroes realize all of their DC counterparts have gotten big-screen adaptations, the fivesome set out to make their own movie – pretty meta for a kids flick!

6. Christopher Robin 

Release date: August 3

Between Paddington 2 and now Christopher Robin, it's a darn good year for lovable bears. Ewan McGregor stars as a grown-up Christopher Robin, who, now weighed down by the burdens of adult-dom, has lost his sense of wonder. Not to fret! Winnie-the-Pooh and the rest of the Hundred Acre Wood gang will help Robin rediscover the magic of everyday life. 

Give me a good historical drama, and I'm a happy girl. Helen Mirren stan.
