Disney have unleashed a calendar-quaking list of upcoming release dates including those for Star Wars: Episode IX, Indiana Jones 5, and the new live action Lion King remake.  

The final part of this initial trilogy, which will be directed by Jurassic World’s Colin Trevorrow, will break with the Christmas release date tradition and take us to a galaxy far, far away on the 24th May, 2019. Of course, little else is known, about the film other than it will star Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), Poe (Oscar Isaac), BB-8 (himself) and the others over from the previous two films. 

Other titles now confirmed by the House of Mouse include the next Indiana Jones outing, which has shifted a year to 2020, Jon Favreau's live-action The Lion King (July 2019), Frozen 2 (which confirmed its title and will still arrive in 2019), and several untitled Marvel, Disney Feature Animation and Pixar releases.

Two other intriguing notes is that Disney Animation's Gigantic (a spin on Jack And The Beanstalk) has been pushed back from 2018 until 2020, while Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 is shifting to later in 2018.
