Disney announced all its movies coming in the next 3 years — here’s what you have to look forward to

By Kirsten Acuna,

Walt Disney Studios made a major update to its theatrical schedule in July at the fan event .

The company outlined its movie schedule for the next two years, announced new live-action films, and confirmed release dates and casting for movies including “Aladdin” and “Dumbo.”

They’re just two additions to more than 20 coming Disney movies, which includes a mix of animated films, Marvel superheroes, sequels, and many more trips to a galaxy far, far away. Disney previously released dates for coming films stretching through 2020 and beyond. INSIDER rounded up every release date we know for the studio.

This list does not include all of Disney’s undated live-action films.

Here is everything you can expect to see from Disney from now through 2020:

We’ll finally get a third “Thor” movie in November.

In “Thor: Ragnarok,” the God of Thunder will be imprisoned on one side of the universe without his hammer and with a new look.

At the same time, his home of Asgard is undergoing some new management after being destroyed by new villain Hela (Cate Blanchett).

Her character’s so strong she broke Thor’s hammer in the movie’s first teaser. You can read more on her here.

Fan favorite Loki (Tom Hiddleston) will be back, and Jeff Goldblum will join the Marvel Universe as the Grandmaster.

Thor will have to team up with his brother Loki, the Hulk, and a few new faces to take back his home from Hela. “Thor: Ragnarok” will be in theaters November 3.

Pixar’s next original movie will be “Coco.”
This is Miguel.Disney

Inspired by the Mexican celebration of Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead, the film will focus on an aspiring musician named Miguel.

Disney actually tried to copyright “Day of the Dead” and quickly received a lot of backlash since the day celebrates loved ones who have died.

He’ll find himself in the Land of the Dead with a trickster, Hector, who will help him learn why his family has a ban on music.

“Coco” will be in theaters November 22.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” will round out the year.

It was revealed at “Star Wars Celebration” that Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) will play a much larger role in “Episode VIII.”

We hope to see him train Rey to be a Jedi.

It also looks as if we’ll get a big flashback sequence to find out why Kylo Ren went to the dark side.

“The Last Jedi” will be in theaters December 15.

Disney will kick off 2018 with a standalone movie for Marvel’s “Black Panther,” starring Chadwick Boseman.

First seen in “Captain America: Civil War,” T’Challa is a powerful warrior and king from the fictional African nation of Wakanda.

“Black Panther” will be directed by Ryan Coogler, who won audiences and critics with his movie “Creed.”

T’Challa will return home after the death of his father, the previous king of Wakanda. He’ll run into an old enemy while there.

Lupita Nyong’o and “The Walking Dead” star Danai Gurira will also be in the film.

“Black Panther” will be in theaters February 16.

Ava DuVernay (“Selma”) is directing a live-action version of the children’s book “A Wrinkle in Time.”

The Newbery Medal-winning novel from Madeleine L’Engle is about a young girl who goes searching for her father after he goes missing. He was working on a mysterious item called a tesseract.

The movie will follow a middle-school student named Meg (Storm Reid), who is having trouble fitting in at school.

Things get bad when her father, Mr. Murry (Chris Pine), goes missing. She sets off on a journey to find him with the help of a few celestial guides.

The film has an all-star cast including Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey, Michael Peña, and Mindy Kaling.

The film will also star Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Zach Galifianakis, and Bellamy Young.

“A Wrinkle in Time” is set for a March 9 release.

It was previously set to be released next April 6. You can watch the trailer here.

Disney previously announced a comedy about magicians called “Magic Camp,” which stars Jeffrey Tambor and Adam Devine. It will open April 6.

There was no word about it at D23 Expo. It was previously set for an August 2018 release.

Disneynature will also release its next film, “Dolphins,” on April 20. It will follow the adventure of Echo.

Next May, we’ll finally get the next Avengers movie, which has been years in the making.

As shown in footage at D23 Expo, the Guardians of the Galaxy will meet up with Thor in “Avengers: Infinity War.”

Marvel Studios’ head, Kevin Feige, has said the film will take place four years after the events of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”

They’ll have to team up to take down Thanos, the father of “Guardians” member Gamora who’s out to destroy the world.

And don’t worry. They’ll be joined by Spider-Man. “Avengers: Infinity War” has a May 4 release date.

Later that month, on May 25, an untitled Han Solo “Star Wars” prequel will be released.

Alden Ehrenreich will play the young Han Solo in the film.

Donald Glover will star as Lando Calrissian in the spin-off. They’ll be joined by Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”), Woody Harrelson, and Thandie Newton (“Westworld”).

Comedy duo Chris Miller and Phil Lord (“The Lego Movie”) were originally directing the movie. After some drama behind the scenes, Ron Howard has replaced them.

Director Brad Bird is returning to make a sequel to his 2004 hit “The Incredibles.”

The sequel will start where the last one ended. This time around, the superhero family will find themselves teaming up with even more heroes to take down a new villain.

Mr. Incredible will be a stay-at-home dad while his wife is out fighting crime.

The “Incredibles” sequel will now be released June 15.

Fans at D23 Expo were able to preview a scene from the coming movie. You can read about what they saw here.

Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly will be back for an “Ant-Man” sequel, “Ant-Man and The Wasp,” on July 6.

Next fall, Disney is releasing “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” with Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy.

Helen Mirren and Morgan Freeman will also star along with Mackenzie Foy in the update to the classic story.

It is scheduled to arrive in theaters November 2, 2018.

It was pushed back from its previous March 9 release.

Fifty-four years later, “Mary Poppins” is set to get a sequel called “,” but it will star Emily Blunt and “Hamilton” star Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Blunt will play Poppins, while Miranda will play a street lamplighter, Jack.

The sequel will have Poppins visit a grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with his three children, as they get through a “personal loss.”

The cast will also include Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks, Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks, and Julie Walters as the Banks’ housekeeper. Colin Firth and Meryl Streep will also appear. Angela Lansbury will be “the Balloon Lady,” and Dick Van Dyke will play Mr. Dawes Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.

“Mary Poppins Returns” has a December 25, 2018, release date.

We’ll finally get a female-led Marvel superhero film when “Captain Marvel” comes to theaters on May 8, 2019.

Oscar winner Brie Larson will step into the role of Carol Danvers.

The film will be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.

Disney’s next live-action movie will be “Dumbo” from director Tim Burton.

Burton directed 2010’s hit live-action “Alice in Wonderland.”

It sounds as if the live-action version will take some liberties to update the classic with Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito, and Michael Keaton.

Farrell will play a former circus star and war veteran who cares for Dumbo. His kids discover that the young elephant’s large ears enable him to fly. They’ll clash when circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) wants to use Dumbo’s abilities for his benefit.

Keaton and Eva Green will play entrepreneurs who want to turn Dumbo into a star.

It has a release date of March 29, 2019.

We’ll see the conclusion of Marvel’s three-phase cinematic universe with the untitled fourth “Avengers” film on May 3, 2019.

“Star Wars: Episode IX,” the finale in the new trilogy, will be directed by Colin Trevorrow (“Jurassic World”) and is scheduled for release on May 24, 2019.

Pixar is also working on a fourth “Toy Story.”

At Disney’s D23 Expo in 2015, Lasseter said the sequel would be a love story between Woody and Bo Peep.

Lasseter said Woody and Buzz would set out to find Bo Peep, who was not in the third film. “It’s a very personal story for me, inspired by my wife, Nancy,” Lasseter said.

The project was initially announced in 2014 for a 2017 release.

In July, Lasseter announced he would no longer be directing the film. Josh Cooley will take over directing duties. “Toy Story 4” has a release date of June 21, 2019.

Cooley worked on the “Inside Out” short, “Riley’s First Date?”

“The Jungle Book” director Jon Favreau will direct the studio’s live-action adaptation of “The Lion King.”

The Hamlet adaptation is one of Disney’s most successful animated features.

“This is a story that belongs to everyone who grew up with the original film,” Favreau told the crowd. “I wanted to demonstrate that we could be respectful of the source material while bringing it to life using new techniques and technologies.”

Donald Glover will voice adult Simba, while James Earl Jones reprises his role of Mufasa.

Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner will voice Pumbaa and Timon, respectively. Disney reportedly wants Beyoncé for the role of adult Nala.

“The Lion King” is scheduled for release on July 19, 2019.

A sequel to the highest-grossing animated movie of all time, “Frozen,” is planned for release on November 27, 2019.

A live-action “Mulan” is set for release in 2019 and will be directed by Niki Caro.

Caro told Moviefone there were no plans for the project to include songs despite the film’s classic songs like “Reflection,” which Christina Aguilera sang.

Instead, Caro has said the film will be a “girly martial arts extravaganza.”

Caro told Screencrush she was going to start learning martial arts with her little girl to prep. The film was originally set for a November 2, 2018, release.

Disney is also making a movie based off the ride “Jungle Cruise” with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

“Monsters University” director Dan Scanlon will direct an original Pixar animated movie. The untitled film will answer the question “Who was my father?”

“In the film, we’re going to tell the story of two teenage elf brothers whose father died when they were too young to remember him,” Scanlon told fans at D23 Expo. “But thanks to the little magic still left in the world, the boys embark on a quest that will allow them a chance to spend one last magical day with their father.”

Scanlon added that the film would be set in a world with only elves, trolls, and sprites. There won’t be any humans.

The fifth “Indiana Jones” movie was given a new release date. It’s now set to hit theaters July 10, 2020.

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy previously told Vanity Fair in 2015 that a fifth film would happen “one day.” In 2016, the untitled film was given a July 19, 2019, release.

Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Indy, while Steven Spielberg will direct.

Disney is also working on its own adaptation of “Jack and the Beanstalk,” called “Gigantic.”

The movie will follow Jack, who stumbles upon giants in the sky and befriends a 60-foot-tall, 11-year-old girl named Inma. “Gigantic” was rescheduled for a November 25, 2020, release.

The film was pushed back more than two years from its original March 9, 2018, release date.

A live-action “Aladdin” will also be directed by Guy Ritchie.

At D23 Expo, it was confirmed Will Smith would voice the Genie.

Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott will play Aladdin and Princess Jasmine. There is no set date for the adaptation.

Some fans were not happy with the casting choices.
