Disney Movies Coming Out in 2022

Disney Has So Many Movies Planned Through 2022, Including a Buzz Lightyear Origin Story!

LIGHTYEAR, slated to open in theaters on June 17, 2022, is a sci-fi action-adventure and the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear (voice of Chris Evans)—the hero who inspired the toy. The film reveals how a young test pilot became the Space Ranger that we all know him to be today. © 2020 Disney/Pixar. All Rights Reserved.

Although Disney's new movie plans for 2022 are pretty vague as of now (it hasn't even named all of its 2021 releases yet!), the company does have a general idea of what its film release calendar will look like over a year from now. Although each of the films is untitled as of now, we are already giddy at the prospect of all eight — yes, eight! — new Disney movies coming in 2022.

From Pixar, we'll see two animated movies released — one called Turning Red on March 11 and Lightyear, a Buzz Lightyear origin story, on June 17. As for Disney live-action films, there will be four in total, and they'll drop on April 8, May 27, Aug. 12, and Nov. 4 (one of the spring releases will be the live-action animated hybrid, Chip N' Dale: Rescue Rangers!). Indiana Jones 5 is expected to come out on July 29 (though the jury's out on whether it'll be kid-friendly or more for teens and adults), and finally, an animated Disney flick is expected on Nov. 23.

For now, these small crumbs of information thrill us, but we of course can't wait to learn the names of all eight movies — and find out whether any of them will be remakes of beloved films — once they're announced. Stay tuned!
