The 'Wreck It Ralph' sequel has a tentative release date of March 9th, 2018.
A sequel for the animated hit Wreck-It Ralph has been officially announced by Walt Disney Animation Studios, due to be released in 2018.
Director Rich Moore, who was in charge of the original movie that was a box office sensation in October 2012, confirmed that he was working on a follow-up during a live Facebook chat on Thursday (June 30th).

The original voice cast of 'Frozen' is returning for some Lego-based animated shorts later this year, and a series of novels is also being released, to tell a brand new tale 'Northern Lights'.
Fans of Frozen won’t have to wait long for more material from the franchise, with Disney unveiling a new original story entitled 'Frozen Northern Lights' this week, a multi-media project that will be told via various art forms including books and short animated Lego videos.
All the original fan favourites will be getting back together, including Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Josh Gad and Jonathan Groff, in a new tale that will see the gang try to restore the Northern Lights. The series will include a new protagonist joining the gang, named Little Rock.

The sequel brought in $136.2 million domestically.
Not unexpectedly, 'Finding Dory' has made not so much a splash at the weekend box office (June 17th 2016), but more a humongous tidal wave. The Disney Pixar animation has broken the record for the highest grossing animated debut in history. The 2018 release of 'Toy Story 4' has got a lot to live up to.
Finding Dory blows other animations out of the water
'Finding Dory' has followed the success of its predecessor by becoming the biggest opening for an animated film ever, bringing in $136.2 million domestically and beating 2007's 'Shrek the Third' (a Dreamworks feature) which had a $121.6 million debut.

A successful outing from Pixar, not that we ever doubted it.
'Finding Dory' finally arrives in cinemas and it appears that this long awaited sequel to the much-adored 'Finding Nemo' was totally worth the wait - for fans of the original at least. Critics can't get enough of the overwhelming emotion of the movie, nor of its resonance in the world of childhood disability.
'Finding Dory' is probably the best sequel of the year
For every critic who's dismissing 'Finding Dory' as unoriginal, another one is exalting it for its sensitivity and relevance; suitably adapted for this decade but still remaining inescapably familiar after 13 years. 'It's like meeting up with an old friend and realizing that somehow, in spite of all the years and distance, no time has passed at all', Consequence Of Sound wrote.

There's plenty to look forward to over the next three to four years.
It seems that Disney has largely been focusing on re-booting the classics in live action, so it's been a little quite on the Pixar animation front. Of course, 'Finding Dory' is coming this summer and we've just received the first taster of 'Moana', but what else have Pixar fans got to look forward to?
Look no further. The schedule for Disney Pixar isn't what you'd call extensive, but aside from untitled projects (two of which are thought to be based on Delilah Dirk and Mickey Mouse, respectively) there's a lot of sequels to get stuck into.

Earlier this month a twitter campaign asking Disney to make Elsa their first LGBT princess in the ‘Frozen’ sequel went viral.
Frozen fans who have been asking Disney to make Elsa their first ever LGBT princess have just gained their most important supporter yet, Idina Menzel. Menzel, who provides the voice for Elsa, has said she thinks the idea of giving Elsa a girlfriend in the upcoming sequel is ‘great’ and that the online campaign was something Disney would have to contend with.
Idina Menzal has given her support to the ‘get Elsa a girlfriend' campaign.
"I think it's great," Menzel told Entertainment Tonight when asked about the online campaign. "Disney's just gotta contend with that. I'll let them figure that out.” Menzel then added that “no matter what," Elsa had changed her life.

A campaign to make Disney give Princess Elsa a female love interest in 'Frozen 2' went viral over the weekend.
A Twitter campaign to persuade Disney to give Princess Elsa a girlfriend in the upcoming sequel to Frozen has gone viral.
The petition, with the hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend, is aiming to make Princess Elsa the first LGBT Disney princess in the studio’s history.
After all, the narrative arc of Princess Elsa in the first Frozen movie was of a journey to acceptance of her powers, summed up by her empowering number ‘Let It Go’, and it was widely interpreted as a metaphor for coming out. So, the new campaign is aiming to put that subtext into plain view in the sequel by giving the character a female love interest.

The studio announced nine upcoming live-action features, based on classic tales.
Disney has confirmed a slew of exciting upcoming films, including sequels for The Jungle Book and Maleficent, as well as stand-alone movies based on Cruella de Vil and Tinkerbell. The announcement comes as Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book continues its reign on the top of the US box office, so far taking over $500 million worldwide.
Emma Stone will star as Cruella de Vil in a new Disney movie.
The studio did not specify release dates for any of the upcoming films, but did reveal the prime release dates they have set aside for the next three years. The dates Disney has claimed are: July 28, 2017 (instead of Dec. 22, 2017); April 6, 2018; Aug. 3, 2018; Dec. 25, 2018; and Dec. 20, 2019.
Disney's reboot of The Jungle Book is still the king of the U.K. box office.
Jon Favreau's retelling of Rudyard Kipling's 1894 story made $11.84 million (£8.1 million) in its second weekend (23-24Apr16) in British cinemas.
The figures mark an extremely impressive second weekend in theatres for the film, which features voice performances from Scarlett Johansson, Idris Elba and Bill Murray.
By comparison, superhero blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice only made $6.81 million (£4.66 million) in ticket sales the weekend after it opened.

Disney Classics are the new black.
So 'The Jungle Book' appears to be getting good critical reception all round; and no wonder with its stunning combination of live action and CGI, not to mention a stellar voiceover cast. It's only the latest in a string of Disney Classics to be re-made though, as that beloved world is being continuously re-visited.
The Jungle Book is in theaters now
As well as 'The Jungle Book', so far we've had 'Snow White and the Huntsman', 'Maleficent', 'Cinderella', 'Hercules', 'Alice In Wonderland'... need we go on? Of course, they're not all derived from the Disney flicks - in fact, most are simply re-boots of the original tale. But there's still a lot more where that came from.
