Luca

Luca

Release Date: June 18, 2021

Pixar's newest film was originally set for a theatrical release, but it instead follows its predecessor, Soul onto Disney+. Luca follows two brothers, voiced by Jacob Tremblay and Jack Dylan Grazer, who are actually sea monsters, as they attempt to hide among humans in a small town on the Italian Riviera. It's clearly got the heart and the charm that we've come to expect from Pixar. It's the first feature film from Enrico Casarosa, the Oscar nominated director of the animated short La Luna.

Free Guy

Release Date: August 13, 2021

A hit West End musical in England, Everybody's Talking About Jamie takes its story from a BBC documentary about a young boy who knew at 16 that he wanted to become a drag queen.

Jessica Chastain stars as Tammy Faye Bakker and Andrew Garfield will play her husband Jim Bakker in this dramatic adaptation of a documentary film about the former evangelist couple. Chastain has absolutely transformed herself for the part and The Eyes of Tammy Faye and considering how many awards season boxes this one checks, expect to see it be a strong contender.

The Last Duel

Release Date: October 15, 2021

A movie surrounding 14th century French knights starring the likes of Matt Damon, Adam Driver, and Ben Affleck sounds like something we'd all like to see and when you add that The Last Duel is directed by Ridley Scott, the mind behind period epics like Kingdom of Heaven and Gladiator, this becomes a must watch. Both the production and the release of this one were delayed by pandemic, but this is one film we're still excited to see.

Ron's Gone Wrong

Release Date: October 22, 2021

An animated story for the digital age, Ron's Gone Wrong is the story of Barney, a young boy, and Ron, a walking, talking digital device who becomes Barney's friend.

Antlers stars Keri Russell as a teacher who enlists her brother, played by Jesse Plemons when she believes one of her students ins in possession of a supernatural creature.

Eternals title card

Eternals

Release Date: November 5, 2021

One of the most interesting projects we've seen from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in some time, Eternals introduces a new group of immortal heroes to the universe. Having existed throughout all of time Eternals looks to cover a lot of ground chronologically, as well as introduce one of Marvel's strangest super team's to its massive universe.

Encanto

Release Date: November 24, 2021

Byron Howard and Jared Bush, the directing team behind Zootopia, are back together for Disney's next big animated musical adventure. Encanto will introduce Disney's first South American princess character, a girl named Mirabel who is the only member of her family unable to use magic. The film's music is by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Nightmare Alley

Release Date: December 3, 2021

If a horror film produced by Guillermo del Toro isn't enough for you in 2021, that's ok, because Nightmare Alley is the Oscar-winner's next directorial effort. The film stars Bradley Cooper as a carney with a particular talent for manipulating people, and Cate Blanchett as a psychiatrist he starts a relationship with, and who turns out to be even more dangerous.

West Side Story

Release Date: December 10, 2021

Steven Spielberg's remake of the classic musical West Side Story is all but guaranteed to be one of the biggest movies of the year. The classic Romeo and Juliet love story set in 1950s New York City was a massive film when it was made in 1961 and with Spielberg behind it the new version will have even bigger shoes to fill. Considering this movie is one of the reasons the director couldn't work on the upcoming Indiana Jones movie, we all certainly hope it was worth it.

The King's Man Ralph Fiennes enters a room with a gun drawn

The King's Man

Release Date: December 22, 2021

The next Kingsman film is set to be an origin story of sorts that takes place against the backdrop of World War I. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ralph Fiennes, and Djimon Hounsou are among those who will have roles in the film. The project was previously being referred to as Kingsman: The Great Game, but was changed to the title of The King's Man for a cleaner, more edgy offering.

Release Date: January 7, 2022

Deep Water

Release Date: January 14, 2022

Based on the novel of the same name, Deep Water stars Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas as a couple in a loveless marriage. It's a dark and twisted tale of mind games and murder that is directed by Adrian Lyne who previously helmed Fatal Attraction, Indecent Proposal, and more, but hasn't made a film in 20 years, making this one even more highly anticipated.

Murder on the Orient Express Hercule Poirot standing outside of the train

Death On The Nile

Release Date: February 11, 2022

The follow up to Kenneth Branagh's Murder on the Orient Express, Death on the Nile will again make him the director and star when he plays Agatha Christie's famous detective Hercule Poirot.

Once again the movie will boast an all-star cast as well, including Gal Gadot, Letitia Wright, Armie Hammer, and Annette Bening.

Turning Red

Release Date: March 11, 2022

The next original concept from Pixar is still largely a mystery, but the premise certainly has us curious. A teen girl named Mei Lee discovers that when she gets too excited (read: a lot) she magically transforms into a giant red panda. Yeah, Turning Red sounds like something special.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness title card

Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness

Release Date: March 25, 2022

After three movies, and almost five years of waiting, Doctor Strange returns in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. A movie that promises to be something quite different for the MCU.

Joining in on the fun this time is Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff, played once again by Elizabeth Olsen and following from the events of WandaVision.

Untitled Disney Live Action

Thor: Love and Thunder title card

Thor: Love and Thunder

Release Date: May 6,2022

Taika Waititi made a hell of an impression with Thor: Ragnarok. So much so that not only did he get to reprise his character of Korg in Avengers: Endgame, he's also been brought back to write and direct the next film in the Thor series: Thor: Love and Thunder. The even bigger surprise this time out is that Natalie Portman will be returning to the fold as Thor's old flame, Jane Foster - a woman who will also possess the power of the thunder god himself.

Untitled 20th Century

Release Date: June 10, 2022

Lightyear

Release Date: June 17, 2022

While the name Lightyear implies a solo outing for everybody's favorite Toy Story Space Ranger, the movie we're getting here is something a little different. The premise is that Lightyear is actually the movie that the Buzz Lightyear toy from Toy Story is based upon. Chris Evans will voice the character in what is looking to be science-fiction action movie played more or less straight.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Release Date: July 8, 2022

With the tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman there were questions as to whether or not the announced sequel to Black Panther would even happen. And while we still don't know the details. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is moving forward, and based on the title, it feels like the movie will be dealing quite directly with the same loss.

Untitled Indiana Jones

Release Date: July 29, 2022

After 14 years Indiana Jones will return one more time. While the plot is still a mystery, we know that James Mangold will take over the directing duties on Indiana Jones 5 from Steven Spielberg. Mads Mikkelsen and Phoebe Waller-Bridge have also been cast in undisclosed roles.

The Marvels

Release Date: November 11, 2022

What was once called Captain Marvel 2 is now known as The Marvels. While little is known about the project beyond the title, that title implies a lot. WandaVision gave superpowers to Monica Rambeau and we know that Iman Vellani, who will debut as Ms Marvel in her own Disney+ series prior to this film is also set to appear. We can likely expect both to join forces with Brie Larson's Carol Danvers, though to what end remains to be seen.

Untitled Disney Animation

Joining Foxx as part of the ensemble cast to Soul are Questlove, Tina Fey, Phylicia Rashad, and Daveed Diggs.
