Disney Has So Many Movies Hitting Theaters from 2019 to 2023
Consummate planners, rejoice! Disney has announced its complete film release schedule for the next four years, and we’re Tigger-level excited. From live-action reboots of Aladdin and The Lion King (starring Beyoncé!) to Star Wars: Episode 9, here’s everything we have to look forward to from the house of the mouse. As Mickey would say, “Oh, boy!”

This Disney classic is getting a live-action reboot starring Eva Green, Michael Keaton and Colin Farrell. Oh, did we mention Tim Burton is directing?

The Toy Story gang returns for a fourth iteration that’s sure to make us cry all the tears.
7. ‘The Lion King’: July 19, 2019
Beyoncé as Nala, Donald Glover as Simba and James Earl Jones as Mufasa? This live-action remake of The Lion King can’t come fast enough.
8. ‘Artemis Fowl’: August 9, 2019
Based off the sci-fi fantasy novels of Eoin Colfer, this film from director Kenneth Branagh will star Josh Gad, Dame Judy Dench and newcomer Ferdia Shaw.

12. ‘MALEFICENT 2’: MAY 29, 2020
Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning aren’t the only ones reprising their roles for this Maleficent sequel. Juno Temple and Sam Reilly will also be back for the second time along with Michelle Pfeiffer and Chiwetel Ejiofor who are joining in on the fun.
13. ‘JUNGLE CRUISE’: JULY 24, 2020
We’ve seen adaptions of Disney rides to films be widely successful before (*cough cough* Pirates of the Caribbean), and we expect this one will be no different.
14. ‘INDIANA JONES 5’: JULY 9, 2021
Although little is known about the fifth film in the Indiana Jones franchise, it’s highly anticipated. With Stephen Spielberg as a director, how can anything go wrong?
Disney has also called dibs on release dates from July 19, 2019, to February 17, 2023, for 29 more live-action and animated films, including Marvel and Pixar options.
Our four-year plan is officially set.
