Disney and Pixar Animation Have Movie-Going Plans For You Through 2018

Fans of Disney and Pixar Animation might want to pull out their day planners (or, fine, their iCals) and mark down some important dates in the coming years. Yes, years, as the studios have now announced release dates for eight films over the next five years, with each animation arm lining up four new films in the coming years. Just which films make up these new releases? Well, that’s not something we know just yet, but does it even matter? New Pixar!

There are still, however, plenty of patterns to be found in the news (beyond the most obvious one, which is that all eight films will be released in 3D), like that most dates are placed in June (like Brave, Cars 2, Toy Story 3, and the upcoming Monsters University) and November (like Wreck-It Ralph, Tangled, and this year’s Frozen), which THR reminds us have proven successful release times for both Disney and Pixar in the past. After all, even the most bloated summer blockbuster season needs an animated outing for the kids, and hitting that Thanksgiving weekend is nothing but gravy for the box office.

The newly released schedule is as follows:

UNTITLED DISNEY ANIMATION now dated on 3/4/16 wide in 3D

UNTITLED PIXAR ANIMATION now dated on 6/17/16 wide in 3D

UNTITLED DISNEY ANIMATION now dated on Wed 11/23/16 wide in 3D

UNTITLED PIXAR ANIMATION now dated on 6/16/17 wide in 3D

UNTITLED PIXAR ANIMATION now dated on Wed 11/22/17 wide in 3D

UNTITLED DISNEY ANIMATION now dated on 3/9/18 wide in 3D

UNTITLED PIXAR ANIMATION now dated on 6/15/18 wide in 3D

UNTITLED DISNEY ANIMATION now dated on Wed 11/21/18 wide in 3D

Upcoming releases that we do know about include Monsters University on June 21; Planes on August 9; Frozen on November 27; The Good Dinosaur on May 30, 2014; Big Hero 6 in November of 2014; Inside Out on June 19, 2015; and Finding Dory on November 25, 2015.

With such a lack of hard and fast information on these new releases, let’s take it to the comments – what do you want to see from Pixar and Disney? The Incredibles 2? Another Toy Story? That Dia De Los Muertos film? Another Cars?
