Disney Reserves Dates for 8 Upcoming Live Action Films

This week, Disney reserved the dates for 8 different films, believed to be the release dates for their upcoming live action films. It’s no coincidence that they have announced these dates following their extreme success with The Jungle Book.  While Disney has had mixed results with live action films (sorry, John Carter, I liked you), as of lately they’ve had giant hits with their fairy tale adaptations, such as Maleficent and Cinderella as well.

Disney Maleficent

Dates are listed below:

  • July 28, 2017: Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (Live Action), previously dated December 22, 2017
  • April 4, 2018: Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (Live Action)
  • August 3, 2018: Untitled Disney Live Action
  • November 2, 2018: Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (Live Action)
  • December 25, 2018: Untitled Disney Live Action
  • March 29, 2019: Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (Live Action)
  • November 8, 2019: Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (Live Action)
  • December 20, 2019: Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (Live Action)

Within the last year, Disney has announced multiple fairy tale related projects that are in development at one stage or another in the process.  Listed below are the projects that are the most likely candidates for the above dates.

  • Cruella with Emma Stone set for the title role and Kelly Marcel writing
  • A Wrinkle in Time with Ava DuVernay attached to direct and Jennifer Lee writing
  • Jungle Cruise with Dwayne Johnson set to star and John Requa and Glenn Ficarra writing
  • Dumbo with director Tim Burton and writer Ehren Kruger
  • A sequel to Mary Poppins with director Rob Marshall, starring Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda
  • Maleficent 2 with Angelia Jolie set to return in the title role and Linda Woolverton writing
  • The Nutcracker and the Four Realms with director Lasse Hallstrom and writer Ashleigh Powell
  • The Jungle Book 2 with both director Jon Favreau and writer Justin Marks returning
  • A Tinker Bell project with Reese Witherspoon set to star and Victoria Strouse writing

This does not include the Peter Pan live action film from director David Lowery of Pete’s Dragon or the rumored Winnie the Pooh and Mulan, or spinoffs based on GeniesPrince Charming, and Rose Red.  Also missing from the fold are Beauty and the Beast live action take starring Emma Watson and the fifth installment of the “Pirates” franchise Dead Men Tell No Tales bringing back Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow.

But what about Disney’s upcoming animated films? They haven’t been forgotten either.  With unknown dates planned for Frozen 2, they are also planning on the following animation:

Disney Pixar Finding Dory

  • Finding Dory  with returning cast members Ellen Degeneres and Albert Brooks, along with newcomer Ty Burrell, expected June 17, 2016
  • Moana starring Dwayne Johnson and directors Ron Clements and John Musker, out November 23, 2016
  • Cars 3 written by Robert Baird and Dan Gerson, expected June 16, 2017
  • Coco  a Dia de los Muertos based story directed by Toy Story 3 helmer Lee Unkrich, expected November 22, 2017
  • Gigantic a loosely based take on Jack and the Beanstalk, expected March 9, 2018
  • Toy Story 4 written by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack, expected June 15, 2018
  • The Incredibles 2 bringing back director Brad Bird, out June 21, 2019

Combining these with the ambitious schedules of franchise titans Marvel Cinematic Universe and Star Wars, Disney has the potential to pull in more money over the next 4 years than any other entertainment studio.

While I will always be a Disney fan, and most of these movies personally appeal to me, I believe it is safe to say Disney may be throwing its weight around a little here. Most of these films, along with their upcoming animated films as well, will dominate the box office and monopolize 3D screens across the country, leaving very little screens for everything else.

Disney Petes Dragon

What’s your take on this extensive schedule? Are you looking forward to anything in particular?  Personally, I’ve been waiting for a Disney adaptation of The Nutcracker for my entire life.  It’s a very magical story that could use their touch.
