“The Incredibles 2” Coming Sooner And “Toy Story 4” Coming Later; Two Highly Anticipated Pixar Sequels Switch Release Dates

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.


There is good news if you are an “Incredibles” fan and not so good news if you are a “Toy Story” fan. Both of these highly anticipated sequels to two of Pixar’s most popular franchise are doing the old switcharoo with “The Incredibles 2” now opening on June 15, 2018 and “Toy Story 4” will now open on June 21, 2019.

According to Variety:

“The Incredibles 2” will hit theaters a year before it was originally slated, while “Toy Story 4” will move from 2018 to 2019, Pixar said Wednesday.

The two animated releases will switch release dates. “The Incredibles 2” will debut on June 15, 2018 — the same day that “Toy Story 4” was originally slated to bow in theaters. “Toy Story 4” will then move to June 21, 2019, filling a slot that “The Incredibles” follow-up was supposed to occupy. Both films will have their dates entirely to themselves. The new “Incredibles” will premiere between the releases of “Transformers 6” and the sequel to “Jurassic World.” “Toy Story 4” will bow between an untitled DC Comics film and “Transformers 7.”

Pushing back dates never meant anything negative for Pixar movies before… look at Brave and the Good Dinosaur!
