Disney's 2016-17 Movie Lineup

Last weekend, the D23 Expo 2015 took place at the Anaheim Convention Center. Some of the highlights included the eight new Disney Legends inductees, a performance by some of the original Mouseketeers, and the announcement that a brand new, 14-acre land will be added to Disneyland and Walt Disney Hollywood Studios in Florida featuring a Star Wars theme. How much more exciting could the Expo get?!

Well, it did. The Expo also revealed the 2016-17 schedule for all Disney/Pixar movie releases. There are some amazing movies coming out in the  next two years! Here are the highlighted releases, provided by Teen Vogue.

  • The Good Dinosaur, November 25, 2015
    • This latest Pixar film features a time when cavemen and dinosaurs roamed the earth. An unlikely friendship is revealed during the movie.
  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens, December 18, 2015
    • Who hasn't been waiting for this one! I can't wait to see the return of Han, Luke, Leia and Chewy, and meet the new Jedis.
  • Zootopia, March 2016
    • "A world where animals rule, and humans don't exist." Hmm, should be interesting....
  • The Jungle Book, April 2016
    • One of Disney's classic films is going to be released as a live-action film! I'm looking forward to this one too.
  • Alice Through the Looking Glass, May 2016
    • I didn't see Tim Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland, but I may have to just so I can see the coninuation of the story in Through the Looking Glass. Should be interesting.
  • Finding Dory, June 2016
    • Yes! Definitely! I loved Finding Nemo, and Dory definitely deserves her own movie.
  • Toy Story 4, June 2017
    • Who can say no to Buzz and Woody?
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell no Tales, July 2017
    • Johnny Depp is back as the infamous pirate Jack Sparrow. And Orlando Bloom is back as Will Turner! I'm looking forward to seeing the storyline of Will's return.
