Disney has announced the release dates for 19 movies through the year 2020, including the summer 2017 opening of Pixar’s “Cars 3” and the 2019 bow of “The Incredibles 2.”

Disney has also moved “Toy Story 4” back by a year, from June 16, 2017, to June 15, 2018.

The 19 dates included six Marvel titles — an “Ant-Man” sequel, “Black Panther,” “Captain Marvel” and three untitled films as part of its plans for Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“Ant-Man and the Wasp” will hit theaters on July 6, 2018, while the three untitled Marvel Studios films will bow on May 1, 2020, July 10, 2020, and Nov. 6, 2020.

Disney and Marvel have also opted to move “Black Panther” forward five months from July 6, 2018, to Feb. 16, 2018. The character will be portrayed by Chadwick Boseman and will debut in 2016’s “Captain America: Civil War.”

“Captain Marvel” has been moved forward eight months from Nov. 2, 2018, to March 8, 2018.

Disney also announced Thursday that it has crossed the $4 billion mark at the global box office, beating its previous studio record by six weeks. As of Oct. 7, the studio has hauled $1.4 billion in the U.S. and Canada and $2.6 billion internationally.

  1. 12 April 2019? Thats a Movie Called Alvin the Rodent Cub Movie

  2. Billy says:

    Hello colleagues, nice post and nice urging commented at this place, I am truly enjoying by these.

  3. sequelsawaited says:

    November 2020? Maybe Wreck-It Ralph 2 sounds logical for that day.

  4. Jen says:


  5. What they should release is John Lasseter for the theft of these movies and write their own material instead of destroying mine.

    • art says:

      hello james.

      is there a phone number you can be reached at?

    • Fluffydipper says:

      Which film did they steal from you?

      • James Mcfadden says:

        Actually Cars was the movie that Pixar stole from me. It is widely recognised that Planes is part of the Cars franchise. In fact The Incredibles and Ratatouille all belong to Cars as well. Incredibles 2 was available in 2000, the underminer was kept back as security. The Underminer story is significant to the year 2000. You have been waiting because Pixar never had the script. They don’t have the script. Brad has to develope the story, something i do not think will go unnoticed. Cars 3 and Incredibles 2 the underminer remain intact with me.

  6. crossie says:

    So, let me get this straight; there is only one more original Pixar movie and one Disney animated movie, period (after two next year) until the end of the decade?

  7. Andrew says:

    Is the release date for the Captain Marvel correct? I’ve seen other sites list it as March 8, 2019.

  8. CelluloidFan35mm says:

    Toy Story 4 should not be made. The third one tied everything up nicely and went out on a high.
    Clearly a cash grab decision.
    The Incredibles 2 may be something if they can get Brad Bird back. He was the true heart and soul of that movie.
    Cars 3 should go straight to Blu-Ray/VOD at this point, even though I enjoyed the sequel. I guess the merch is still selling and need a new movie to push more.
    Enough comic book movies already. Talk about oversaturation.
    How about something else for a change.
    The fairy tale movies are a wild card at this point because we don’t know which fairy tales they’re doing or how it will be executed.

    • Blake says:

      No I disagree with you because they got a great storyline for Toy Story 4 that’s the only reason why they want to make another Toy Story plus it will be interesting life after Andy has gone off to college also it’s a new chapter for them and it’s not money grabbing – like X Men that is money grabbing.

    • Jerome Maida says:

      Please do be quiet. No one whines about “oversaturation” with comedies, rom-coms, slasher films or spy movies.

      • CelluloidFan35mm says:

        What’s your deal, pal? I’m just putting in my two cents. If you are a fan, that’s fine but other people would like more options. Also, people are complaining about BAD comedies and rom-coms.
        When was the last time you’ve seen a slasher film on the screen and I have not seen a glut of spy movies recently that is oversaturating the marketplace.

        So unless you have a comment about this subject or an opinion about it, why don’t you be quiet.

  9. Mac V says:

    That was some announcement. However, these guys need to work the story out since it’ll mark 15 years since the original movie released back in 2004. Which is kind of ironic since the first movie’s events spans 15 years. I’d like to see Pixar go with a similar concept to how they worked the big time gap between Toy Story 2 and 3’s events (i.e. Andy now grown up and off to college). Dash, Violet, and Jack-Jack would be older and more mature in both their daily and “Super” lives.

  10. MM says:

    Why is Disney so scared to do a 2-D animation film? (Please use better excuse than using the whole Princess and the Frog thing)

  11. Joe Bloch says:

    Is it my imagination, or did you not actually give the release date of the Incredibles 2?
