Although 2020 hasn't quite shaped up how we all thought it might, Disney is trying its hardest to adapt to the times with a new website filled with activities and entertainment, new movie releases on Disney+ (Hello, Frozen 2 and Onward!), and now, it's giving us something to look forward to with its 2021 film lineup. Although some of the movies below were originally supposed to hit theaters this year, Disney has shuffled its schedule around so that, hopefully, we'll all get to see these new movies in theaters, as intended.
Keep scrolling to see which movies are on the docket for 2021 (and check out the films that are still slated for 2020 and the Disney movies already known to be coming out in 2022!).
