Disney has been known for creating incredible animated movies that have become a staple in the world of cinema. From classics like Cinderella to modern-day blockbusters like Frozen, Disney has built a massive empire that knows how to produce jaw-dropping animated movies. With rival animation companies like Illumination and DreamWorks, the number of movies produced each year has exploded, and it can be hard to keep track of upcoming movies. Let’s take a look into the Disney animated movies that are coming out soon!
These days, moviegoers want to know about upcoming movies months before their first trailer, and it can be hard work going online to check on what your favorite studio is working on. For those who want to know what the Mickey Mouse company has in store for the fans, we have done the work to bring you a video on all the upcoming movies you should expect.
The first animated movie coming from Disney is a fresh IP called Elemental. As the name suggests, this movie will be about anthropomorphic elements of nature living in segregated regions in a city. Unlike other entries in this video, Disney has released trailers for Elemental, and it looks like a love story between two elements who have no business being together.
The trailer for Elemental reveals a lush world called element City where air, fire, water, and earth coexist without mixing. During a freak accident in a kitchen, a fire Elemental named Lumen and a water Elemental named Wade form a relationship that threatens the feeble balance in element City. In the trailer, we see the water Elemental taking Lumen on an Epic Journey around the city they call home. Even though the two can’t touch each other, Lumen gets to see the world through Wade’s eyes, and Wade gets to try her fiery lifestyle.
It’s too early to conclude on the movie, but Elemental feels like another movie on the Forbidden Love Trope, and we know that Disney knows a thing or two about forbidden love. Elemental feels like an explosion of color in every shot, and it doesn’t take a genius to realize that Disney is pulling out all the stops to make this movie an enjoyable cinematic experience.
Disney Animated Movies Focus on Musical Adventure
The next movie on Disney’s lineup is a musical adventure called Wish about a girl who gets a troublemaking star as a companion after she makes a wish to the star. According to Walt Disney Studios, the movie is a tribute that marks the 100th anniversary of Walt Disney and his brother creating the company we know and love today.
As a movie, Wish hopes to show the viewers just how important wishes are, which makes sense since it was centered around a wishing star. Maybe the same wishing star that we were introduced to in Pinocchio, Peter Pan, and Lady and the Tramp. The 17-year-old protagonist will be voiced by Oscar-winning actress Ariana Du Bois, who is known for her work on West Side Story. She will be joined by Alan, who will be voicing a pajamas-wearing goat named Valentino, who wishes for the ability to communicate. According to Disney, we should expect Wish in cinemas in November, and we sure can’t wait!
After the year 2023, Disney plans to make a splash in cinemas with a new IP called Elio. The upcoming movie follows an 11-year-old boy who gets transported across the galaxy and is mistaken for the Intergalactic Ambassador for Earth. The movie was announced at the D23 Expo, and it reiterates Disney’s commitment to pushing out new projects in a movie industry plagued with sequels.
From everything Disney has shown about it, it’s going to be a movie about a kid who doesn’t feel like he fits in at home, which leads him on an accidental journey across the galaxy. The star of the movie will be voiced by an American child actor Jonas, who had a small role in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. He will also be joined by America Ferreira, who will voice his overprotective super mom, Olga. Elio is expected in cinemas on March 1st, 2024, and it promises to be a delight for movie fans who were itching for something fresh from Disney.
Inside Out 2
Disney CEO Bob Iger announced the sequel to the popular Disney film Inside Out. Fans were ecstatic for a chance to see Riley and her emotions one more time on the big screens. Not too long ago, movies like Inside Out might have sounded strange, but today, it’s part of Disney’s success story.
The original film focuses on 11-year-old Riley and her emotions after her family moved to a new city. At the end of the movie, Joy and Sadness work together to help Riley confess to her parents that she misses her old life and cope with the change. In Inside Out 2, we will get to see a teenage Riley with a new set of personified emotions, and we can expect a lot more of what we loved from the first movie. If we don’t get any changes to the schedule, Inside Out 2 will be out in theaters on June 14th, 2024.
Mufasa The Lion King Prequel
The Lion King needs no introduction, and after the success of its live-action remake in 2019, it was only a matter of time before we got a sequel to the fan favorite. With 1.6 billion at the box office, you can’t blame Disney for trying to cash out more from their IP. Mufasa, The Lion King, is a prequel that will give viewers what it was like during Mufasa’s formative years, centering on his origin and the events after the first film.
At the D23 Expo, it was revealed that it won’t be a remake of Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride, unlike its predecessor. As expected, the movie has an ensemble cast voice that includes Aaron Pierre, Calvin Harrison Jr., John Billy, and Seth Rogan. For now, we can only assume that the movie will be similar to The Godfather Part 2, where we get to see things that happened in the past, but also a time skip to the present. It’s too early in development to make educated guesses about the movie, but we know we’ll get more info as we get closer to the release. Mufasa, The Lion King, will make its way to the cinemas come July 2024, and we know it’ll be a date to remember.
After making an impressive comeback in 2019, Bob confirmed that the Toy Story franchise is coming back for one more installment, and it’s exactly what all fans love to hear. It’s crazy to think that we got the first Toy Story movie in 1995, back when Pixar was a humble company making groundbreaking movies. Being one of the most influential animated movies of all time, seeing Woody, Buzz, and Andy’s other toys should hit grown viewers with nostalgia for the good old days.
Disney Animated Movies
In conclusion, Disney has a lot of great movies planned for the coming years, and fans are excited to see what the House of Mouse has in store. From fresh IPs to sequels to popular franchises, there’s no doubt that Disney will continue to be at the forefront of animated filmmaking.
