2023 was not the sort of box office year that Disney had been used to having. While there were a couple of bright spots, many films that would have been expected to be smashes struggled. The studio has made an intentional move to pull back on the quantity of releases, in hopes that improves the quality. 2024 will be a major test of that strategy. 

Here is everything currently on the official release calendar: Whatever your particular passion, animated or live-action, superheroes or science fiction, they have it all. This is your one-stop shop for all the upcoming Disney movies, including Star Wars, upcoming Marvel movies, and new Fox projects. Here's everything coming from Disney, for the rest of this year and beyond.

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes

Release Date: May 10, 2024

The last Planet of the Apes trilogy was a major hit for Fox, and now that Fox is under the Disney umbrella it's time to start again.

Originally planned as a Disney+ movie, The Young Woman and the Sea will instead bow theatrically first. The film stars Daisy Ridley as Gertrude Ederle, the Olympic gold medalist who became the first woman to swim the English Channel.

Deadpool & Wolverine

Release Date: July 26, 2024

One Marvel hero that fans have been very curious about is Ryan ReynoldsDeadpool. The third film, and the first under Marvel Studios, will also include the return of Hugh Jackman, playing Wolverine.  The movie, fittingly titled Deadpool & Wolverine released its first trailer during the 2024 Super Bowl and it promises to be every fans have been hoping for. A nearly endless number of Deadpool 3 cameos have been rumored, so many it's impossible to know which ones are real, but many are expected.  

Alien: Romulus

Release Date: August 16, 2024

The first movie in the Alien franchise since Disney took over 20th Century Fox, little is known about the new film except that it will be directed by Fede Alvarez. According to Variety, It will be set between the first two Alien films

Release Date: November 27, 2024

In a surprising announcement, Disney revealed that a planned Moana series for Disney+ will instead be a theatrical movie. According to the plot synopsis, after receiving an unexpected call for her wayfinding ancestors, Moana must journey into unknown waters. 


Release Date: December 6, 2024 (limited)

This new Searchlight project, based on the book of the same name, stars Amy Adams as a woman who recently became a stay-at-home mom and finds herself transforming into a dog.

Mufasa: The Lion King 

Release Date: December 20, 2024

The Lion King was a massive hit as both a traditionally animated film and as a technically impressive CGI remake. While that success meant several direct-to-video sequels for the original, it means a CGI prequel for the remake. Mufasa: The Lion King will follow the life of Simba’s father, and it’s set to be directed by the great Barry Jenkins, so this one is going to be worth checking out.  

Anthony Mackie as Captain America in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier

Captain America: Brave New World

Release Date: February 14, 2025

The fourth Captain America movie will be the first one not to star Chris Evans in the title role. Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson took on the mantle in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+, and he’ll take Cap back to the big screen in Captain America: Brave New World, previously subtitled New World Order. Not a lot is known about the film at this time, but it will see the long-awaited return of Tim Blake Nelson to the MCU as The Leader, as well as Harrison Ford, taking over the role of "Thunderbolt" Ross from the late William Hurt.  Most recently we learned that Liv Tyler will also return to the MCU as Betty Ross, so the new Captain America film is turning into a minor Incredible Hulk reunion.

Disney's Snow White

Release Date: March 21, 2025

Before most people saw her in West Side Story, Rachel Zegler was cast in the live-action adaptation of Snow White. After the world saw that dance-filled remake, though, we could not wait to see this updated story. This one goes back to the original hit for Walt Disney Studios, and while we know this Snow White adaptation will make some key changes to the original story regarding the dwarfs, it will also include some new original songs from Benj Pasek and Justin Paul of The Greatest Showman.  

The Amateur

Release Date: April 11, 2025

This 20th Century Studios project will star Rami Malek as a CIA cryptographer who goes after the terrorists who killed his wife when his agency refuses to help.

Release Date: May, 2, 2025

It’s going to be a long time in between Avengers movies for the MCU, but in 2024 we’ll get a different sort of team-up with Marvel’s version of the Suicide Squad, Thunderbolts. At D23 2022 we learned who the Thunderbolts team will consist of: Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier. Florence Pugh’s Yelena, David Harbour’s Red Guardian, and Olga Kurylenko’s Taskmaster, all from Black Widow. The team will also include Wyatt Russell’s US Agent from The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Hannah John Kamen’s Ghost from Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Elio is the story of an 11-year-old boy who gets transported across the galaxy and finds himself mistaken for an ambassador for the planet Earth. Newcomer Yonas Kibreab voices Elio, while America Ferrera will voice the boy's mother. Adrian Molina, the co-director of Coco, will be helming this one as his first solo directorial effort for Pixar. Originally set for a summer 2024 release, the movie was delayed more than a full year

Fantastic Four

Release Date: July 25, 2025

The first family of comics will finally make its Marvel Cinematic Universe debut following years of speculation. On Valentine's Day 2024, the long-rumored main cast of Fantastic Four was finally confirmed. Pedro Pascal is Reed Richard, Vanessa Kirby is Sue Storm, Ebon Moss-Bachrach is Ben Grimm and Joseph Quinn will be Johnny Storm. Indications are that the movie will be at least partially set in the 1960s, the era when the Fantastic Four first made their mark in superhero comics.

Tron: Ares

Release Date: October 10, 2025

The Tron franchise has had a rough time at the movies, and yet, the program refuses to end. The long anticipated, and long believed dead third Tron movie, Ares starring Jared Leto, now has an official release date, confirming that the movie is actually happening.


Release Date: November 7, 2025

First revealed at San Diego Comic-Con in 2019, we knew that Mahershala Ali would play Blade in the same instant we learned a Blade movie was even happening in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At this point, that’s still basically all we know. Director Bassam Tariq recently left the film, causing a delay in production and release date, but the movie is still reportedly moving forward.

Zootopia 2

Release Date: November 26, 2025

While Disney CEO Bob Iger had previously confirmed that Zootopia 2 was coming, exactly when we'd see it was unknown. Finally, on the  Q1 2024 earnings call, Bob Iger gave Zootopia 2 a 2025 release date. Plot and characters are still unknown, but hopefully, all our familiar friends will be back. 

 Avatar 3

Release Date: December 19, 2025

Avatar 3 was filmed concurrently with Avatar: The Way of Water, so we know the movie is on the way, but with the release so far in the future, we likely won’t hear much about it any time soon. We do know it will include a tribe of Na'vi who live around volcanoes, known as the Ash People, who, unlike the Reef people of Avatar 2, will be antagonists to Jake Sully and his family.

Avengers: The Kang Dynasty 

Release Date: May 1, 2026

The MCU multiverse was born in the first season of Loki with the introduction of Jonathan Majors as Kang. With Marvel's decision to split from Jonathan Majors,  this movie appeared to cease to exist, and director Daniel Destin Cretton has left the project. However, as of this writing, the film, with this title is still officially on the Disney release calendar.

The Mandalorian & Grogu

Release Date: May 22, 2026 

We haven't seen a new Star Wars project on the big screen since The Rise of Skywalker, and it seems the plan is that the first one we see in years will have started on Disney+. The Mandalorian & Grogu movie has been officially confirmed as the first new Star Wars movie we get, when it arrives in the summer of 2026.

Moana and Maui in Moana

Moana (Live-Action)

Release Date: July 10, 2026

Knowing how successful live-action remakes of Disney movies are, we probably could have guessed that a live-action Moana would happen someday, but few probably expected to happen so fast. Less than a decade after the animated hit was released, the live action version is set to debut. Dwayne Johnson will reprise his role in the flesh as Maui. Auli'i Cravalho will not be back on screen, opening the door for another newcomer to make a splash, but the original Moana is involved as a producer.

Untitled Disney Animation (Frozen 3?)

Release Date: November 25, 2026

Frozen 3 has not been specifically dated, but we know Frozen 3 is happening and during the Disney Q1 2024 earnings call Bob Iger said it would arrive in  2026. No other Walt Disney Animation Studios films are scheduled to be released in 2026, so this appears to be the date for the next Frozen movie, though things could still change.

Untitled Star Wars

Release Date: December 18, 2026

After many years of confusion regarding the future of the Star Wars universe on the big screen, we finally received some details. At the recent Star Wars Celebration in London, three new movies were confirmed. One of them will see Daisy Ridley return as Rey in a film directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. A second film will be directed by Dave Filoni and will act as a culmination of the current Disney+ series that he has produced. A third project, directed by James Mangold will tell the story of the first Jedi. An older project, written and directed by Taika Waititi is also still in development. Which of these projects this one will be is unknown.

Avengers: Secret Wars

Release Date: May 7, 2027

Secret Wars is one of the most popular comic crossover stories that Marvel has ever created, and so there’s already a lot of excitement surrounding a movie of the same name. Avengers: Secret Wars is set to be the official end of Phase Six of the MCU and The Multiverse Saga, but that’s really all we know at this point.  

Untitled Star Wars 

Release Date: December 17, 2027 

After many years of confusion regarding the future of the Star Wars universe on the big screen, we finally received some details. At the recent Star Wars Celebration in London, three new movies were confirmed. One of them will see Daisy Ridley return as Rey in a film directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. A second film will be directed by Dave Filoni and will act as a culmination of the current Disney+ series that he has produced. A third project, directed by James Mangold will tell the story of the first Jedi. An older project, written and directed by Taika Waititi is also still in development. Which of these projects this one will be is unknown.

Avatar 4 

Release Date: December 21, 2029

James Cameron has said that parts of Avatar 4 were filmed alongside Avatar: The Way of Water and Avatar 3, but another massive production will need to get underway to finish out the five-movie cycle. One certainly hopes that it won’t take as long to happen as it did to make the first sequel. 

Avatar 5 

Release Date: December 19, 2031

The final Avatar movie will finally arrive in 2028, assuming there are not more delays, and Cameron doesn’t get it in his head to write more sequels. 

While all of this is, of course, subject to change, and there are a lot of “Untitled” movies we know literally nothing about, there’s plenty here that is likely to keep Disney on top of the box office for several more years to come. Continue below for a look back at recently released Disney films.

Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania

Release Date: February 17, 2023

The third movie in Marvel's Ant-Man franchise, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, saw the return of Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly as the title characters, as well as the return of director Peyton Reed. Jonathan Majors joined the cast as Marvel villain, Kang the Conqueror. While all indications are that the movie will be important in the larger Marvel Multiverse Saga, the movie failed to outgross the previous Ant-Man sequel and got a lukewarm response from both fans and critics.

Release Date: April 21, 2023

Chevalier was based on the true story of composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, the son of a slave and a plantation owner who became a star in French society. Kelvin Harrison Jr. played the lead in a film co-starring Samara Weaving and Minnie Driver.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 

Release Date: May 5, 2023

Originally set to be launching the point for the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 4, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 finally arrived in 2023 under director James Gunn. All the core cast was back, and Will Poulter joined the film as Adam Warlock. The movie brought Gunn's trilogy to a close in a powerfully emotional way, and became a box office champion in the process.

The Little Mermaid (Live-Action) 

Release Date: May 26, 2023

Disney’s live-action remakes of its animated hits have been some of the popular company’s biggest successes on the big screen, and The Little Mermaid was the movie that kicked off the Disney Renaissance and brought the Mouse House back to its place as the king of theatrical animation. When these two things came together expectations were quite high, and  The Little Mermaid  grossed over a half billion dollars at the global box office.

The Boogeyman

Release Date: June 2, 2023

In the years during and since the pandemic we've seen a lot of movies that were intended for theatrical distribution make the move to streaming platforms instead. Now, a big movie has gone the other way. An adaptation of Stephen King's The Boogeyman, which had been destined for Hulu, was instead moved onto the theatrical calendar, seemingly showing a great deal of faith in the film

Release Date: June 16, 2023

Pixar has previously given life to toys, emotions, and even human souls. In Elemental, we saw the elements of fire, water, earth, and air personified. Directed by The Good Dinosaur’s Peter Sohn, Elemental was a somewhat surprising character-driven narrative that told a story of a romance while also being a powerful immigrant tale. While Elemental initially struggled at the box office, it ultimately found an audience through positive word of mouth.

Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones in The Dial of Destiny

(Image credit: Lucasfilm)

Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny

Release Date: June 30, 2023

After 15 years, Indiana Jones returned one more time. The first trailer revealed the official title, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, and showed off both an older Indy, as well as de-aged Harrison Ford, indicating that the new adventure has elements tied to Indy's past. James Mangold took over the directing duties on Indiana Jones 5 from Steven Spielberg. Mads Mikkelsen plays the film’s villain, while Phoebe Waller-Bridge is Indy’s goddaughter. If you haven't checked it out yet, read CinemaBlend's Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny review to see what we thought.

Haunted Mansion 

Release Date: July 28, 2023

This studio has been somewhat hit or miss when it comes to movies based on Disney theme park rides. One of the previous failures was a movie based on the popular Haunted Mansion. But, never let it be said they won’t try again after a failure. The new movie stared Rosario Dawson as a woman who moves into the titular New Orleans mansion but then needs to find help when she discovers it’s already inhabited, but 999 happy haunts. The new Haunted Mansion was received better by critics than the previous iteration, but it struggled at the box office just as much.

A Haunting In Venice

Release Date: September 15, 2023

A Haunting in Venice saw the return of Kenneth Branagh's Hercule Poirot for a third big-screen outing. This time things took a turn for the supernatural when Poirot attended a séance, where another guest turns up dead. As with previous entries, this one will be a star-studded affair with Jamie Dornan, Tina Fey, and Michelle Yeoh. The film saw some of the best responses from critics the franchise has seen so far, so this may not be the last we see of Poirot.

John David Washington in The Creator

The Creator  

Release Date: September 29, 2023

Originally called True Love, The Creator was directed by Rogue One's Gareth Edwards and starred John David Washington, Gemma Chan, Allison Janney, and Ken Watanabe. The science fiction film that saw humanity in an ongoing war with artificial intelligence. Washington plays a soldier who finds a child of AI, of unexplained origin, that humanity wants to destroy, but he feels he must protect.

The Marvels 

Release Date: November 10, 2023

What was once called Captain Marvel 2 eventually became The Marvels. WandaVision gave superpowers to Monica Rambeau, and Iman Vellani, who debuted as Ms. Marvel in her own Disney+ series prior to this film joined forces with Brie Larson's Carol Danvers. Together they fought a new intergalactic foe while dealing with their peers becoming entangled with each other. While The Marvels was not a box office smash, it seems likely the events of the film will be key to the MCU's future. 

Michael Fassbender in Next Goal Wins

Next Goal Wins 

Release Date: November 17, 2023

Following his success with Thor: Love and Thunder, Taika Waititi shifted focus from superhero action to sports action. Next Goal Wins told the true story of Thomas Rongen (Michael Fassbender), who was hired to coach the national soccer team of American Samoa, seen as one of the worst teams in the world.

Release Date: November 22, 2023

For Disney's 100th anniversary, Walt Disney animation went back to its roots with Wish. It was an animated film that saw a strong female protagonist in a magical animated musical, exactly the sort of story that put Walt Disney Studios on the map. The first trailer for Wish revealed an absolutely beautiful art style and Chris Pine as the movie's villain. Unfortunately, the movie wasn't a massive hit at the box office. Time will tell if audiences discover it on Disney+.

Emma Stone in Poor Things

Poor Things

Release Date: December 8, 2023

From Emma Stone and director Yorgos Lanthimos, who previously brought us the absolutely wonderful, The Favorite, Poor Things was a take on the story of Frankenstein that saw Stone's character as a woman brought to life by a doctor played by Willem Dafoe. The film has been widely praised by critics, especially Stone's performance as Bella. Expect this one to be a major awards contender.

Paul Mescal and Andrew Scott in All Of Us Are Strangers.

All Of Us Strangers

Release Date: December 22, 2022

A chance encounter between two men in a nearly empty apartment building leads one of them, played by Andrew Scott to face memories of his past, revisiting his childhood home, where he sees his parents again, despite the fact that they've been dead for 30 years. It looks to be a haunting character drama from director Andrew Haigh.
