Fall Kids Movie Tie-ins

The fall childrens movie season opened big this weekend with Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs topping the charts.

As the list below reveals, plenty more kids movies based on books are coming this season, even without counting the YA titles (New Moon and Whip It!— the Drew Barrymore movie based on Shauna Cross’s Derby Girl).

Links are to the trailers (including the one just released last week for Disney’s A Christmas Carol). Tie-ins are listed in our Movie tie-ins: Scheduled section.

Believe it or not, there are some titles that are NOT based on books this season. That doesn’t prevent them from having tie-ins, however:
