Disney Unveils Its Full Film Slate for 2018 and 2019 at CinemaCon

Wreck-It Ralph 2 | Ralph Breaks the Interner

At last week’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Disney unveiled its full slate of movies through the end of 2019.

Few — if any — of the listings were surprising, as all of these projects have previously been announced. However, it does drive home just how jam packed Disney’s motion picture slate is.

Disney’s movie slate seems built almost entirely of Marvel, Star Wars, animation, and live-action remakes of classic animated films.

The only outlier is the occasional film based on a book — Artemis Fowl. A Wrinkle in Time had a less than stellar box office debut, so it will be interesting to see if Artemis Fowl can hold its own against Disney’s other releases.

The Impending Disney-Fox Merger was felt at CinemaCon

The upcoming Disney-Fox merger was also felt at CinemaCon, with Fox reflecting back on its rich history of film-making.

“We put our chips on vision,” Fox film chief Stacey Snider said during an emotional series of remarks to exhibitors.

“We’ve been making movies and memories for nearly 85 years,” she said. “We took chances, pushed boundaries, and forged the future of the film business… Going forward, let’s stay committed to the vision of cinema. Let’s wear our hearts on our sleeves and aim to please.”

The Disney-Fox Merger is expected to be finalized by the Summer of 2019, barring any snags from the government.

It’s possible that Disney could use the Fox brand for riskier films that fall outside of its current tentpole strategy.

I've loved Disney as long as I can remember. As a former newspaper editor, web developer, and Disney comics freelancer, I'm able to combine that experience into writing about Disney online. I'm also the co-host of a Disney fan podcast called 'Pirates & Princesses.' Opinions mine.
