Disney's Lion King and Frozen 2 Both Get 2019 Release Dates

Disney

Of course, no one could blame them for being excited to share the news of an actual release date being that we've spent the last four years waiting for news pertaining to the Frozen sequel. Because even though Disney revealed on Tuesday that Frozen 2 finally has a release date, you'll still need to be patient.

The fan favorite film will be releasing "Frozen 2" as the second sequence to Disney's original film.

However, we do already know that Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel will be returning to their iconic roles as Elsa and Anna, as will Josh Gad as the lovable Olaf.

We're now still living and breathing the stunning live action remake of Beauty and the Beast.

The live-action version of The Lion King will pound into theaters on July 19, 2019. It's set to star Donald Glover as Simba, with James Earl Jones as Mufasa, and Beyoncé (!) reportedly considering voicing Nala. Earlier tonight, Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner were confirmed as Pumbaa and Timon respectively.

Until now we didn't actually have a release day for Star Wars: Episode IX, just a year, 2019.

Other Disney movies that now have dates include A Wrinkle in Time (March 9, 2018) and Magic Camp (April 6), as well as two untitled animated movies, one each from Disney (November 24, 2021) and Pixar (June 18, 2021). With a release date now on the books, there's a good chance that script is now done, or at least near enough to completion to ramp up pre-production.

We can also expect some new animations too.

It's taking the slot formerly occupied by the studio's Jack and the Beanstalk retelling very big, which has now been moved to November 25, 2020.

Lastly while I didn't mention it in the title it's worth noting that Ralph will now break the internet a couple months later in his sequel to Wreck-it Ralph.

Again, for your calendars, that release date is November 27, 2019.

Little else is known about the sequel, although the movie's producer told EW in March that the film was already in the development writing process.
