If you’re a fan of good movies, Disney is going to have you glued to a seat in your local movie theater next year. In 2019, Walt Disney Studios is rolling out 10 movies and is projected to have one of the highest-grossing years of all-time for a Hollywood studio.
Classic animations such as Dumbo, The Lion King, and Aladdin will return as rebooted live-action movies.
The Lion King live-action remake, which is starring Donald Glover as Simba, James Earl Jones as Mustafa, Beyonce as Nala, is already doing numbers and it doesn’t hit the big screen until July 19, 2019. On Saturday when Disney released the trailer, it racked up over 224.6 million views online, making it the second most viewed trailer in a single day from any studio. The Lion King only trailed the Avengers: Infinity War, which is a Disney Marvel Studios movie and totaled 238 million views.
A few of Disney’s other highly anticipated release will be the fourth installment of Toy Story, with new character Forky, as well as Frozen 2, the sequel to one of Disney’s newest animations, which is also the biggest animated movies in history, Avengers 4 and Star Wars: Episode IX.
