In 2016 Disney had the biggest box office year of any studio in the history of time. While the studio actually has fewer films planned in 2017, almost every single one of them is poised to be a major blockbuster. And then, of course, there's everything they have planned after that.
Between all the different studios that Disney owns, there's a nearly endless stream of movies planned for the rest of this decade. Here is every single one of them, animated, live-action, comic book, and science fiction, even a documentary just to balance things out. This is your one-stop shop for all things Disney. Here's everything that has to yet to be released by the House of Mouse.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
The Guardians of the Galaxy movie became one of Marvel's biggest hits. The less-than-serious tone appealed to fans, and had them laughing as much as cheering. While the team was largely an unknown quantity the first time around, now they have a history to live up to. The early trailers have certainly shown us that the attitude will be the same. Now if we only knew what in the blue hell the movie was about.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
The Pirates of the Caribbean movies started out great, and have been on a steady decline ever since. Whether the new film, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is trying to start fresh, or simply go out on a high note isn't clear. However, a great deal of the new film looks to be trying to go back to the basic ideas that made the first film work. With a new villain in Javier Bardem and the return of some classic characters, maybe the combination of old and new is what the series needs.

Who'd have ever guessed that one of the most interesting films on the way from Pixar would be the third entry in the Cars franchise? A teaser trailer that promises that the movie will open with a near death experience from main character Lightning McQueen is the last thing we expected to see. Pixar is promising a more grounded and emotional story than we saw in Cars 2. We're ready to take a ride with this one.
Release Date: June 16, 2017
Spider-Man joined Marvel's cinematic universe last summer in Captain America: Civil War. Now that he's back in the fold, Marvel is wasting no time in putting their new wall-crawler front and center - and it will let us see if the public is really still excited for yet another webslinger. We're guessing they are. Technically Spider-Man: Homecoming is being both marketed and distributed by Sony Pictures (part of the deal made a few years ago), but because of the Disney-owned Marvel Studios' involvement on the creative side, we're counting it here.
Release Date: July 7, 2017
Thor has never been the brightest star in the MCU universe. Having said that, there are a lot of eyes on Thor: Ragnarok. The addition of director Taika Waititi promises a significantly different tone than the previous films. In addition, recent reports are that MCU newcomer Benedict Cumberbatch will be bringing Doctor Strange to the film with a much larger role than previously expected. Throw the Incredible Hulk in for good measure and this could be an end of the world we could really enjoy.
Release Date: November 3, 2017
Coco is Pixar's lone original story currently on its slate, surrounded on all sides by sequels. The story will follow a young boy named Miguel with a passion for music. That music will open a door to the land of the dead, and will send Miguel on a journey that will reunite him with lost family members. While music is a big part of Disney animation, it's never been at the forefront of what Pixar has done. It should be fun to see what they can do.
Release Date: November 22, 2017
Star Wars: Episode VIII
Finally, Disney's year will end in the same place that the last couple years have wrapped up, Star Wars. The middle episode of the current trilogy is being helmed by Looper's Rian Johnson and we can't wait to see what a new director brings to the franchise. We expect we'll get at least a few of our Force Awakens questions answered, and we'll say a final goodbye to Carrie Fisher.
Release Date: December 15, 2017
Of course, all that's just 2017. With so many major franchises currently being undertaken, Disney has the next several years already planned out. Here's everything that we know for sure is coming in 2018 and beyond.
