Marvel and DC Comics certainly seem to have a lot of their cinematic plates: the comic book titans have released infographic calendars which display all of the movies being released over the next four years:

Not to be outdone, Disney has recently released an article which shows what they have cooked up well into the 2020’s:

The slate already includes Alice Through the Looking Glass (coming this May), Pete’s Dragon (premiering in August), and Beauty and the Beast (in March 2017)—but make sure to keep a sharp eye out for these exciting upcoming flicks:

  • Cruella, starring Emma Stone in the title role

  • A Wrinkle in Time, with Ava DuVernay (Selma) attached to direct

  • Jungle Cruise, starring Dwayne Johnson (Disney’s upcoming Moana)

  • Dumbo, from director Tim Burton (The Nightmare Before Christmas)

  • A sequel to Mary Poppins, with director Rob Marshall (Chicago), starring Emily Blunt (Into the Woods) and Lin-Manuel Miranda (Broadway’s Hamilton)

  • Maleficent 2, with Angelia Jolie set to return in the title role

  • The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, from director Lasse Hallstrom (Chocolat)

  • The Jungle Book 2, with both director Jon Favreau and writer Justin Marks returning

  • Tinker Bell project, with Reese Witherspoon set to star

A new Maleficent?  I’m game.  A movie inspired by the Disneyworld ride Jungle Cruise?  One of my favorite attractions.  And don’t even get me started on the Beauty and the Beast live-action musical.
