Disney just announced all its movies coming through 2020 -- here's what you have to look forward to

Captain america civil warMarvelExpect to see a lot more of these faces.

Walt Disney Studios just made a major update to its theatrical schedule stretching through 2020.

Not only did Disney confirm that the long-awaited “Frozen” sequel is finally on its way, but the studio also announced that “Star Wars: Episode IX” will be making its way to theatres in May 2019.

The rest of Disney’s upcoming lineup over the next few years includes a mix of animated films, Marvel superheroes, sequels, live-action adaptations, and many more trips to a galaxy far, far away.

This list does not include all of Disney’s planned and undated live-action films. You can check that out here.

Here is everything you can expect to see from Disney from now through 2020:

'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' is kicking off the summer 2017 schedule.

The Guardians are back with a few more friends.

Most of the cast from the hit 2014 film are reprising their roles, including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, and Vin Diesel as an adorably small Baby Groot.

Name a more iconic duo. I'll wait.

This time around, Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) will come face to face with his mysterious father (Kurt Russell).

It only makes sense that Star-Lord's dad's name would be Ego.

Pom Klementieff, and Elizabeth Debicki also join the film as Mantis and Ayesha, respectively.

Mantis and Drax are the perfect oddball duo in 'Vol. 2.'

And, of course, there will be plenty of great songs to groove to on the soundtrack. 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' will be in theatres May 5, 2017.

Groot trying to get off the ship in this image may be the most adorable thing.

Check out our review of the movie here.

We're also getting a fifth 'Pirates of the Caribbean' next month.

Johnny Depp in 'Dead Men Tell No Tales.'

'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,' will follow Jack Sparrow as he's being chased down by an old nemesis, Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem).

That's Javier Bardem under some makeup and CG effects.

He'll team up with astronomer Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario) and Henry (Brenton Thwaites) to find Poseidon's trident.

It's like the first movie all over again, but with younger sidekicks.

Apparently, the trident will somehow help Sparrow.

After skipping out on the most recent 'Pirates' movie, Orlando Bloom will reprise his role as Will Turner.

Orlando Bloom in the 'Pirates' franchise.

If you've been following the 'Pirates' movies, you'll know Turner has a son out there who he wants to reunite with. Bloom won't be the only familiar face back.

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

Captain Barbossa and his monkey will be back, too.

Pixar is putting out a third 'Cars' movie in June.

Lightning McQueen is back.

Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) will start to feel the wear of a new generation of younger cars pushing him out of racing.

Jackson Storm (left) is the new big racing threat in 'Cars 3.'

His main competition appears to be a young car named Jackson Storm.

He'll get some help from a younger mentor, race technician Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo), to help him have a chance at going up against the younger crew.

Ramirez is a Hispanic female car.

USA Today had a preview of the new cars last year you can check out here.

'Cars 3' will be in theatres June 16, 2017.

It looks like Lightning McQueen will take a pretty hard hit in 'Cars 3.'

You can watch a trailer for the film here.

Marvel's second film of the year will be 'Thor: Ragnarok,' another threequel.

Don't look too happy, Thor. Things are not going too well for you in this outing.

Things aren't looking so great for the God of Thunder who's imprisoned on one side of the universe without his hammer.

We may be even more in love with Thor now.

He's also had his long locks shorn for battle.

At the same time, his home of Asgard is undergoing some new management after being destroyed by new villain Hela (Cate Blanchett).

Blanchett looks almost unrecognizable.

Her character's so strong she broke Thor's hammer in the movie's first teaser. You can read more on her here.

Fan favourite Loki (Tom Hiddleston) will be back and Jeff Goldblum will join the Marvel Universe as the Grandmaster.

Loki's back to cause some mischief.

You can read more about all of the new 'Thor' characters here.

If things couldn't get any worse, it looks like Thor will have to go up against his old work buddy, the Hulk. 'Thor Ragnarok' will be in theatres November 3.

Thor and Hulk will do battle in 'Thor 3.'

Thankfully, it doesn't look like they will be fighting for long. They have some saving to do, after all.

Pixar's original release of the year will be 'Coco.'

This is Miguel.

Inspired by the Mexican celebration of Dia de los Muertos, which means 'Day of the Dead,' the film will focus on aspiring musician Miguel.

Miguel has a beautiful guitar.

Disney actually tried to copyright 'Day of the Dead' and quickly received a lot of backlash since the day celebrates loved ones who have died.

He'll find himself in the Land of the Dead with a trickster, Hector, who will help him learn why his family has a ban on music.

It will be in theatres November 22, 2017.


Watch the teaser trailer for the film here.

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' will round out the year.

When we last saw Rey she was holding out Luke's old lightsaber to Skywalker.

We expect the eighth film in the franchise to kick off where 'The Force Awakens' ended, with Rey and Luke finally interacting.

Mark Hamill in 'The Last Jedi.'

It was revealed at 'Star Wars Celebration,' Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) will play a much larger role in 'Episode VIII.

Will he train Rey as Yoda trained him?

We hope to see him train Rey to be a Jedi.

It also looks like we'll get a big flashback sequence to find out why Kylo Ren went to the dark side.

Is this Luke's Jedi temple burning with him watching in the distance? It's likely.

Watch the teaser trailer for 'The Last Jedi' here.

'The Last Jedi' will be in theatres December 15, 2017.

Kylo Ren is back with a scar on his face.

Instead, Caro has said the film will be a 'girly martial arts extravaganza.'

Caro told Screencrush she was going to start learning martial arts with her little girl to prep.
