Hocus Pocus 2 — Sept. 30 (Disney+)
In this long-awaited sequel to Hocus Pocus, a teenager discovers she might be a witch on her 16th birthday. Naturally, she lights the black flame candle and all hell breaks loose (literally), bringing the Sanderson Sisters back to Salem once again.

Strange World — Nov. 23
The Clades are a family of explorers famous around the globe. However, after stumbling upon a strange new world that's full of danger and adventure, the family will need to learn to work through their differences in order to survive their most treacherous expedition yet.

Disenchanted — Nov. 24 (Disney+)

ZOOTOPIA+ — Nov. 9
The breakout hit film is becoming a series on Disney+ and is set to lampoon famous movies and TV shows throughout Hollywood history. Get ready for "Real Housewives of Rodentia," "So You Think You Can Prance," and "The Godfather of the Bridge," among others.

2023

Haunted Mansion — March 10
Disney's spooky classic dark ride is coming to the big screen (again), this time with an all-star cast including Winona Ryder, Dan Levy, Hasan Minhaj, Jared Leto, and Jamie Lee Curtis as the iconic Madame Leota.

The Little Mermaid — May 26
Sticking with Disney's recent theme of making live-action versions of their animated classics, Halle Bailey is taking on the role of Ariel in the remake of The Little Mermaid. Judging from the newly-revealed teaser trailer, Bailey will get to show off her phenomenal voice, making it all the more painful to know that Ursula is about to steal it from her.

Elemental — June 16
Elemental will take place in a city where fire, water, land, and air residents live together. The film, from The Good Dinosaur director Peter Sohn, stars Leah Lewis and Mamoudou Athie.

Peter Pan & Wendy (Disney+) — undated
Disney is once again opening up the vault and retelling the iconic tale of Peter Pan. The film will be live-action.

Win or Lose (Disney+) — undated
Pixar is unveiling its first-ever series with Win or Lose, which follows a little league team on their way to the finals. Will Forte is set to voice the team's coach.

Iwaju (Disney+) — undated
Set in a futuristic Lagos, Nigeria, this upcoming series is a love letter to the city, while also exploring concepts of classism and the status quo.

Wish — November
Inspired by the Wishing Star that was so prominent in Disney's earlier films, Wish takes place in the Kingdom of Wishes. Ariana DeBose will be voicing the movie's protagonist, and, for anyone wondering, Alan Tudyk will be voicing a goat named Valentino. As a nod to classic Disney films, the movie will be a musical.

2024

Mufasa: The Lion King — undated
In this prequel to The Lion King, it's revealed that before becoming king, Mufasa was actually an orphan, which is sure to create some tear-jerk moments reminiscent of old-school Disney movies. On the brighter side, the film is going to be narrated by Timon and Pumbaa!

Snow White — undated
Rachel Zegler and Gal Gadot will star in the live-action retelling of the classic fairytale, Snow White. Zegler will be portraying Snow White, while Gadot will be taking on the role of the nefarious Evil Queen.

Elio — Spring
In this coming-of-age comedy (with a twist), an 11-year-old boy becomes the first human to make contact with aliens. The cast will include America Ferrera.

Inside Out 2 — Summer
Amy Poehler is returning for the sequel to Inside Out. Riley, the original film's protagonist, is now a teenager, meaning she's going to experience a lot of new emotions, leading to lots more humor, and hopefully, some more surprisingly authentic and touching moments like the first film.
