The official Disney Blog, Oh My Disney!, has just posted new release dates for Disney movies!

Now, I don’t really post the full list anymore (because Warners is too chicken to place dates on their superhero movies), but here’s the Disney timeline through 2020:

What’s interesting?

  • No Star Wars movie in 2019, but you do get Indy V. (I expect more Star Wars announcements by the end of 2017.)
  • Annual Avengers movies in 2018 and 2019, with Ant-Man, Wasp (stealing the spotlight from), Ms. Marvel in between.
  • “Born in China” is a Disney Nature movie.
  • “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is a Disney feature?!? (Technically, no, Sony is distributing and controlling production.)
  • Disneytoon Studios is Disney’s smaller animation studio, producing mostly direct-to-video spin-off titles.
  • 2019 will have THREE live-action fairy tale movies! (Anyone want to guess which ones?) (Please, please, PUHLEEZE “Hunchback of Notre Dame”!)
  • Only TWO Marvel movies in 2019. And what are the THREE movies in 2020?
  • Lin-Manuel Miranda will star in the Mary Poppins sequel (but not compose), as well as pen new songs for the Little Mermaid live-action movie (which isn’t on this list)!
  • Disney has basically locked down “Marvel May Day” and “Thanksgiving Wednesday”. The year-end slot dominated by Star Wars last year (middle of December-Wednesday) remains open in 2018 (Sony will slot the animated Spider-Man movie on 12/21/2018-Friday), and 2019 features a Friday-opening fairy tale movie.

In related news… in case you forgot, Disney’s D23 Expo will take place the week BEFORE San Diego Comic-Con, on July 14-16. Anyone else planning a 10-Day endurance run (D23-two days at Disneyland-CCI)?

Also: Doctor Strange has helped Disney surpass it’s record-setting box office from 2015, with $2.3 Billion domestically this year. To come: Moana and Rogue One. (This is even more impressive, given the flops of BFG, Pete’s Dragon, and Alice Through the Looking Glass.) ¬†Possible final? Just shy of Three. Billion. Dollars. (and that’s just domestic!)
