Disney’s D23 Expo took place this weekend in California and that means we just got our watch list for the next two years. Their major studios, Walt Disney, Pixar, Lucasfilm, and Marvel Studios have announced some of their upcoming series, animated films, and live-action films that are either going to start production soon or will be released soon.
From new movies to the revival of old, classic ones, it’s safe to say that 2023 and 2024 will be great years for Disney, and these are the titles that we’re most excited about.
The Little Mermaid
The one news that entirely broke the internet was the teaser for the highly-anticipated live-action film, The Little Mermaid, where Halle Bailey, who plays the role of Ariel, wowed the entire world with her rendition of the iconic song, ‘Part Of Your World’.
Mufasa: Lion King
The prequel to the Oscar-Winning Live-Action The Lion King, Mufasa: Lion King is all set to release in 2024. With Barry Jenkins returning to the director’s chair, the movie will focus on Mufasa and his origin story as one of the greatest kings in the history of private lands. “The story is told in two different time frames… It’s a story about how Mufasa rose to loyalty. We assume that he was just born into his lineage, but it was actually an orphan who had to navigate the world alone by himself. We get to experience the real journey of how Mufasa found his place in the circle of life,” said Jenkins.
Disney’s Inside Out is back with Amy Poehler coming reprising the role of Joy. All set to release in the summer of 2024, it’s the sequel to the hit 2015 Pixar movie that revolved around a young girl, Riley, who goes through a journey of emotions as she grows up. Her five main emotions—joy, sadness, fear, anger, and disgust help her navigate through this rollercoaster of emotions while Riley adapts to growing up and moving from Minnesota to San Francisco.
Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs
While we’ve already seen some behind-the-scenes shots of West Side Story’s Rachel Zegler as the first-ever Walt Disney Princess, Snow White, we hear that the live-action of the 1937 classic will only be hitting theatres in 2024. Rumour has it that Gal Gadot will also be seen in the remake of Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs as the Evil Queen.
