DISNEY have had an iron fist on the box office in recent times with the distribution of Marvel, Star Wars and all of your childhood films.
As always, next year is a stellar one for Disney movie magic so let’s get the lowdown on when each of these classics are scheduled for release…
Disney Release Dates 2018
Toy Story 4
The fourth instalment of the Toy Story gang will hit UK cinemas on June 21, 2019.
Toy Story was originally released in 1995 before spawning two sequels in 1999 and 2010, respectively. Overall, it has earned 7 Academy Award nominations and almost $2billion worldwide.
In 2015, Pixar president Jim Morris admitted the next instalment would have more of a “standalone plot”.
Not much else is known about the plot so far except that it will feature a love story between Woody and Bo Peep, however, fans can rest knowing Tom Hanks and Tim Allen will once again be lending their voices to Woody and Buzz.
The most successful animated film of all time, Frozen 2 has a lot to live up to when it hits UK cinemas on November 27, 2019.
The film follows the debut of the Frozen theatre musical which opens this August and moves to Broadway next spring.
The story is unsurprisingly being kept under wraps but Kristen Bell revealed on April 9, 2017, while appearing on the Ellen Show that: “I have recorded the movie…I know the songs, I know the story. It’s very good!”
The Lion King
The Lion King is following in the footsteps of The Jungle Book and is returning for a live action version on July 19, 2019.
Director Jon Favreau said that he would be using more of the same virtual reality technology used in The Jungle Book.
James Earl Jones is reprising his role as Mufasa while British 12 Years a Slave actor Chiwetel Ejiofor has been cast as Scar.
Guy Ritchie is at the helm for this live-action version, set for release on May 24, 2019.
Mena Massoud has been cast as Aladdin with Naomi Scott taking over the role as Jasmine.
Will Smith has been confirmed to play the iconic role of The Genie that Robin Williams made famous.
However, the film has already come in for some harsh criticism, with the crew accused of ‘browning up’ whit extras to appear in the movie.
