Behold, Disney‘s planned movie releases for the next four years! Look for sequels to beloved films such as Finding Nemo, Toy Story, and Cars; remakes of classics such as Beauty and the Beast; and new stories your kids are sure to love.
Disney just announced every movie it plans to release through 2019, and we couldn’t be more excited! Here are the highlights of what’s hitting theaters for the next four years.
Coming in 2016
From the creators of Frozen comes the newest Disney princess film, Moana. Featuring the voice talents of “The Rock,” A.K.A. Dwayne Johnson, and newcomer Auli’i Cravalho, this is a story of one girl’s quest to save the Hawaiian land and people she loves. The visually stunning tale hits theaters this Thanksgiving (November 23, 2016), with a musical score courtesy of Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda. Mahalo, Disney! We can’t wait!
Star Wars spin-off Rogue One – with a cast including Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen (from Hannibal), Felicity Jones, and Ben Mendelsohn – will take place before the events of A New Hope and will follow a group of rebels who try to steal the plans for the Death Star. It hits theaters December 16, 2016.

It’ll be hard to wait until 2017 for the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson, but we’ll try! Release date: March 17th, 2017.
“We’re sick of Cars”…said no kid ever. Good thing a third installment of the movie is in the works! Release date: June 16, 2017.

Oh, plus there are about a million new Star Wars installments and super-hero movies along the way! And following in the footsteps of Beauty and the Beast and 2015′s Cinderella, Disney is planning four new live-action fairytales—while the titles haven’t been released yet, the company has locked down the release dates: Dec 22, 2017; Nov 2, 2018; March 28, 2019; and Nov 8, 2019.
