Disney has always been that escape for me, in more ways than one, and now I’m excited to see their upcoming movies this year. So many incredible franchises are seeing new films this year! From Marvel to Star Wars to Toy Story, the adventure continues!Disney Movies in 2019 are coming from Disney Animation, Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel!I’m listing these in release order so when you come back to this post for reference, it will be easy to find what you’re looking for.

Captain Marvel-March 8Brie Larson stars in Captain Marvel

Set in the 1990s, Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.

The film stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Rune Temte, Algenis Perez Soto, Mckenna Grace, with Annette Bening, with Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.

The trailers and special looks have gotten me SO pumped for this one! I cannot wait to see how Captain Marvel fits into the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).

Dumbo-March 29

Dumbo was always such a sweet, albeit kinda twisted, animated movie. It makes sense Tim Burton is at the helm of this one. The visuals are already gorgeous.A live action remake of Dumbo will open in March of 2019.

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.

Penguins-April 17Penguins Poster

Disneynature’s all-new feature film “Penguins” is a coming-of-age story about an Adélie penguin named Steve who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he’s targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after. From the filmmaking team behind “Bears” and “Chimpanzee,” Disneynature’s “Penguins” opens in theaters nationwide in time for Earth Day 2019.

Avengers: Endgame-April 26

We don’t know much about this aptly titled Avengers film. They released an amazing trailer about a month ago, and fans have been in a tizzy ever since. Was it a real trailer? Was it a fake? Is everyone going to die after all? So. Many. Questions!Avengers End Game title poster. I cannot wait to see how this one ends! Thankfully, though the title is ominous, it won’t be the last we see of our beloved heroes (just maybe some of the actors who play them).

Aladdin-May 24

A thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic, “Aladdin” is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie (“Sherlock Holmes,” “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”), who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, “Aladdin” is written by John August (“Dark Shadows,” “Big Fish”) and Ritchie based on Disney’s “Aladdin.” The film stars Will Smith (“Ali,” “Men in Black”) as the larger-than-life Genie; Mena Massoud (“Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan”) as the charming scoundrel Aladdin; Naomi Scott (“Power Rangers”) as Jasmine, the beautiful self-determined princess; Marwan Kenzari (“Murder on the Orient Express”) as Jafar, the powerful sorcerer; Navid Negahban (“Legion”) as the Sultan concerned with his daughter’s future; Nasim Pedrad (“Saturday Night Live”) as Dalia, Princess Jasmine’s free-spirited best friend and confidante; Billy Magnussen (“Into the Woods”) as the handsome and arrogant suitor Prince Anders; and Numan Acar (“The Great Wall”) as Hakim, Jafar’s right-hand man and captain of the palace guards.

Live action version of Aladdin opens May 24!Don’t knock it till you try it, folks. I think this one is gonna be a good one! I’ve got a good feeling about it.

Toy Story-June 21

Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called “Forky” to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy. Directed by Josh Cooley (“Riley’s First Date?”) and produced by Jonas Rivera (“Inside Out,” “Up”) and Mark Nielsen (associate producer “Inside Out”).

A Disney movie in 2019 will be Toy Story 4.I mean, come on. Who in their right mind doesn’t want to see this one? The franchise that started it all for Pixar is back, and, yes, with NEW characters!

The Lion King-July 19A remake of The Lion King will be in theaters July 2019.

Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journey to the African savannah where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother–and former heir to the throne-has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his. The all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon, “The Lion King” utilizes pioneer filmmaking techniques to bring these treasured characters to life in a whole new way.

Cautiously optimistic about this one. The casting is on point, but will the CGI be up to the task?

Artemis Fowl-August 9

I guess I need to read the book first and see what Artemis Fowl is all about! I’m not familiar with it at all.Artemis Fowl poster

Disney’s “Artemis Fowl,” based on the beloved book by Eoin Colfer, is a fantastical, spellbinding adventure that follows the journey of 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl. A descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, as he seeks to find his father who has mysteriously disappeared. With the help of his loyal protector Butler, Artemis sets out to find him, and in doing so uncovers an ancient, underground civilization—the amazingly advanced world of fairies. Deducing that his father’s disappearance is somehow connected to the secretive, reclusive fairy world, cunning Artemis concocts a dangerous plan—so dangerous that he ultimately finds himself in a perilous war of wits with the all-powerful fairies.

Frozen 2-November 22

Yay! Just in time for the Thanksgiving holidays. Frozen was my girls’ first movie theater experience, and I can’t wait to see more about our favorite Arendelle sisters!

Arendelle heats up in 2019 when Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf return to the big screen in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen 2,” the much-anticipated follow-up to 2013’s Oscar®-winning “Frozen”—the highest grossing animated film of all time. Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad reprise their roles, while Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, the team behind “Frozen,” return to the directors’ chairs.

Finally, we’re getting to the good stuff! Who really thinks this date is going to stick?  The anticipation is near peak level for me right now. I would’ve thought we’d have a trailer by now, but, alas, no such luck. We can only look at previous films to surmise the title and contents of the movie.
