Disney Confirms Upcoming Slate of Movie Release Dates Including Pixar’s ‘Elio,’ ‘Avatar’ Films

Disney CEO Bob Iger announced the full slate of upcoming Disney theatrical films during Wednesday’s Q1 2024 earnings call, including the surprise “Moana 2.” Several release dates were shifted in the wake of last year’s WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.

“Frozen 3” (Walt Disney Animation Studios), a “Zootopia” sequel (Walt Disney Animation Studios), and another “Toy Story” film (Pixar) are also in development.

While Iger referred to “Frozen 3” as such, he just said the next “Toy Story” film is the first that will reunite the characters since 2019. He did not call it “Toy Story 5.”

Walt Disney Animation Studios has two dates that still don’t have films attributed to them: November 26, 2025, and November 25, 2026. These could be for “Frozen 3” and “Zootopia 2.” Iger also previously confirmed a fourth “Frozen” film is in development, too.

Pixar has March 6 and June 19, 2026, reserved for two films.

“The Mandalorian & Grogu” is scheduled to start filming this summer. No release date has been announced but Disney previously had December 18, 2026, set aside for a “Star Wars” film.

The first poster and teaser trailer for “Elio” were released in the summer of 2023. Watch the teaser below.
