Walt Disney Studios announced a slew of handful of upcoming release dates for films through 2021. The release dates encompass films through Disney, including Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios; Marvel Studios; and Lucasfilm

Frozen 2 | Walt Disney Animation Studios | November 27, 2019

Frozen 2 is the updated title of the UNTITLED DISNEY ANIMATION – previously announced date of 11/27/19 is unchanged.

The Lion King (live-action) | Disney | July 19, 2019

The live-action 3D reimagining of the Disney animated classic features James Earl Jones reprising his role, voicing Mufasa, and Donald Glover voicing Simba. The Wrap is reporting today at Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner will play warthog Pumbaa and meerkat Timon, respectively. The Jungle Book’s Jon Favreau helms the pic.

Star Wars: Episode IX | Lucasfilm | May 24, 2019

Directed by Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World), the film will close out the third Star Wars trilogy (don't worry more Star Wars films will still be coming!).

Director Steven Spielberg and star Harrison Ford will return for the fifth installment in the classic franchise. Spielberg is juggling a handful of different projects, including the upcoming Tom Hanks-starrer and late 2017 release Pentagon Papers, so they likely had to push things back to get the Indy script in order.
