MANILA, Philippines – We’re still reeling from a slew of announcements from Disney, including news that we’ll have to wait a full year longer for Toy Story 4, which is now set for release June 2018, according to Variety.
Cars 3 will debut in June 2017.
Additionally, we finally have a release date for the long-awaited sequel the the celebrated Incredibles film – The Incredibles 2 is set for a June 2019 release, according to io9.
There’s also exciting news for Ant-Man fans: the sequel, called Ant-Man and the Wasp, is set for release July 6, 2018.
Two films, Pixar’s Coco (2017) and Disney’s Gigantic (2018), have also finalized their titles.
We’ve learned a number of things about Toy Story 4, Coco, and Gigantic from August’s D23 Expo as well as from a Pixar presentation attended by Rappler in Singapore.
Toy Story 4 will feature a love story between Woody and Bo Peep, the porcelain figurine we last saw in Toy Story 2 and referred to in Toy Story 3.
Coco is a film about the Day of the Dead, the famous Mexican holiday. At the Singapore presentation, we saw an early clip previewing the film’s look and film. It’s spectacular – a cacophony of sounds and a whirl of visual delight. The clip we saw featured a dazzling array of skeletons dancing joyfully in costume. At the heart of it all, one disguise falls away – revealing not a skeleton, but a young boy, presumably the protagonist, Miguel. (READ: Pixar teases new film ‘Coco’ at D23 Expo)
Gigantic is based on the classic story of Jack and the Beanstalk and follows an 11-year-old lady giant Inma and her team-up with Jack. Songwriters Kristen Anderson Lopez and Robert Lopez, who both worked on Frozen, will be working on the music for Gigantic too.
