The definitive list of Disney films hitting the screen for 2018-2019 are below. Keep in mind, we chose not to include all of the dates, because some of them have already changed, but this list is in order of planned release throughout the course of the respective year:

There are some great movies coming up from Disney in the next couple of years. I’m particularly excited to see where the MCU goes after encountering Thanos– and now that I’ve seen it I have some theories. I am also enthralled with the notion of finally seeing how the Skywalker saga ends, not to mention what Andy’s toys have been up to since finding a new home. I’ve also been impressed so far by the live action Disney movies to this point, so Christopher Robin, Dumbo, and The Lion King are also on my must see list.
Another tidbit that has come out of CinemaCon that is piquing my interest is that Alden Ehrenreich who plays Han Solo in the upcoming Solo film has signed on to a three film contract. Will we be seeing a trilogy of Han, Chewie, and Lando navigating through their smuggling past? Is Han going to be the antagonist for a Boba Fett stand alone film? It’s so fun to speculate what the future holds for the past of Star Wars!
