Disney announced all its movies coming in the next 4 years -- here's what you have to look forward to

Disney and Pixar just made a major update to its theatrical schedule stretching through 2019.

The highly-anticipated sequels for “The Incredibles” and “Toy Story” will be swapping release dates. That now moves the “Incredibles 2” sequel up to June 15, 2018. Meanwhile, “Toy Story 4,” which brings back original director John Lasseter, has been pushed back to a June 21, 2019 release.

That marks the second delay for the “Toy Story” sequel. It was previously moved back a year to 2018.

The rest of Disney’s upcoming lineup over the next few years includes a mix of animated films, superheroes, reboots, sequels, and multiple trips to a galaxy far, far away.

Here is everything you can expect to see from Disney from now through 2019:

This fall's big Marvel movie will be 'Doctor Strange,' starring Benedict Cumberbatch.


Strange (Cumberbatch) will play a surgeon who injures his hands severely in accident.


While he loses the ability to perform surgery, he finds a new purpose in life when he's offered a second chance after a sorcerer trains him to fight evil.


The film will be released on November 4 in the US.


Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson will sing in Disney's 56th animated movie, 'Moana.'


The musical will be centered on a teen who sets out on an adventure to find a fabled island in the South Pacific. Demigod Maui (Johnson) will join in on her adventure.


'Moana' will be released on November 23, 2016.

The cast of the 'Star Wars' spin-off 'Rogue One' will have major star wattage, from Oscar winner Forest Whitaker and Mads Mikkelsen ('Hannibal') to indie favourites Felicity Jones and Ben Mendelsohn.


Taking place before the events of 'A New Hope,' 'Rogue One' follows a group of rebels who try to steal the plans for the Death Star.


Naturally, Darth Vader will make an appearance.


'Rogue One' is directed by Gareth Edwards ('Godzilla') and will be in theatres on December 16, 2016.


Next year, Disney will bring us a live-action adaptation of the animated classic 'Beauty and the Beast,' in which Emma Watson and Dan Stevens will star.

The first sneak peek for the next 'Guardians of the Galaxy' film, 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,' was recently released by director James Gunn.

Kurt Russell, Pom Klementieff, and Elizabeth Debicki also join the film. Russell will be playing Chris Pratt's father.

Of course, there will be more of baby Groot.


The 'Guardians' sequel will be released on May 5, 2017.


A third 'Cars' movie will be in theatres on June 16, 2017.

'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales' will be the fifth movie in the 'Pirates' franchise.

After skipping out on the most recent 'Pirates' movie, Orlando Bloom plans to return for 'Dead Men Tell No Tales.'


'Dead Men Tell No Tales' will be released on May 26, 2017.


Not too long after that, we'll see the third Thor film, 'Thor: Ragnarok,' which is expected to have an appearance from The Hulk. It will be out on November 3, 2017.

'Coco' is inspired by the Mexican celebration of Dia de los Muertos, which means 'Day of the Dead.' It will be released on November 22, 2017.


The eighth episode of the 'Star Wars' franchise -- a sequel to 'Force Awakens' that still has no title -- will be directed by Rian Johnson.

Johnson directed 'Looper' as well as several episodes of 'Breaking Bad.' His 'Star Wars' movie will be released on December 15, 2017.

Disney is working on its own adaptation of 'Jack and the Beanstalk,' called 'Gigantic.'

The second 'Star Wars' anthology film will be released on May 25, 2018.


Director Brad Bird will return to make a sequel to his 2004 hit 'The Incredibles.' The sequel was just moved up a year. It will now be released June 15, 2018.


We'll finally get a female-led superhero film when 'Captain Marvel' comes to theatres on July 6, 2018.

We'll see the conclusion of Marvel's three-phase cinematic universe with 'Avengers: Infinity War -- Part II' on May 3, 2019.


We don't know much about 'Star Wars: Episode IX,' the finale in the new trilogy, but it will be directed by Colin Trevorrow ('Jurassic World') and will be released on May 24, 2019.


Disney Animation Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter is returning to codirect a fourth 'Toy Story' movie.

Lasseter revealed that the sequel will be a love story between Woody and Bo Peep. The project was already moved back a year and will now be released in June 21, 2019.


Disney also locked in dates for five untitled live-action films. Three out of these five projects will be fairy tales.

The success of Disney's 2015 live-action adaptation of 'Cinderella' has paved the way for more fairy-tale movies.

They will be released on July 28, 2017; April 6, 2018; August 3, 2018; December 25, 2018; and December 20, 2019.

With the success of 'The Jungle Book,' Disney proved that it could pull off a hit in the normally quiet month of April. In the past few months, Disney has confirmed it's working on a 'Mulan' adaptation and another of 'The Lion King.'

Meanwhile, with these new releases, as well as 'Episode VIII,' Disney looks to make the month of December, normally a time for more Oscar-oriented fare, its own.
