This full list of new Disney movie release dates includes not just the classic Disney films but everything under the Disney umbrella: Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars (oh my!). We’ve even thrown in the 20th Century Studios release dates as the studios continues its Disney-fication.

Upcoming Animated Disney Movie Release Dates

Just looking for some animation action? Classic Disney isn’t churning anything out this year (we’ll let them ride on the coattails of Encanto a little longer), but 2022 marks the release of two new Pixar films.

The first (Turning Red) is a totally new concept while Lightyear revisits our favorite space ranger—but as an actual person, not a toy. (Nobody tell Woody).

Upcoming Star Wars Release Dates

The Star Wars franchise is killing it with TV shows on Disney+, with The MandalorianThe Book of Boba Fett, and new-for-2022 Obi-Wan Kenobi, but what about new Star Wars movies in 2022?
