Lots of Disney Movies - There are several Disney movies scheduled to be released in 2021. Some include Bob's Burger (April 9), Black Widow (May 7), Cruella (May 28), and Jungle Cruise (July 30).

Variety says Disney has announced the date for the remake of the 1940 classic, Pinocchio. It will drop exclusively on Disney+ and star Tom Hanks as Geppetto, the woodcarver who makes Pinnochio out of wood and treats him as his own son.

In addition to Tom Hanks, the live-action stars Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, Cynthia Erivo, Keegan-Michael Key, Lorraine Bracco, Luke Evans, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt who will voice Jiminy Cricket. Robert Zemeckis, director of Back to the Future and Forrest Gump, will direct the new film.

The live-action film will premiere on September 8th, 2022, which is also Disney+ Day, which celebrates when the streaming service initially dropped. Disney has promised even more premieres that day from Disney, Pixar, National Geographic, Star Wars, and Marvel.

Disney has also released a trailer for it. Watch below!!

Another live-action remake of an animated classic will be “The Little Mermaid” set to come out on May 26th 2023, which just so happens to be my 25th birthday! “The Little Mermaid” will be out in theaters, while “Peter Pan & Wendy” will be a Disney+ exclusive.
