Disney Dates Eight Untitled Toons Through 2018

Release dates all fall within proven months for the Mouse

Marking its territory super early, Disney has flagged release dates from 2016 through 2018 for eight untitled films from Pixar and Disney Animation.

The release dates all fall within months that are proven territory for the Mouse — March, June and late November.

Disney has launched successfully six Pixar films in June, with two more titles set to bow that month, including “Monsters University” on June 21 and “Inside Out” on June 19, 2015. Now, the studio has a Pixar film slated for the second weekend in June through 2018.

Thanksgiving weekend also is tested ground for Disney with such past successes as “Toy Story 2,” “Tangled” and “Enchanted.” The Mouse will bow CGI-animated “Frozen” over this year’s holiday frame, with Pixar’s “Finding Dory” in 2015. Disney Animation laid claim to the following three Thanksgiving weekends.

Meanwhile, Disney Animation will occupy dates in early March during 2016 and 2018 each.

Staking release dates far in advance isn’t unusual for most animated films given their lengthy pre-production schedules. For instance, Fox has nine DreamWorks Animation titles dated through the end of 2016.
