Disney finally unveiled the mega movie calendar of its most anticipated titles. Included are the sequel to the film that gave life to classic video games "Wreck-It Ralph 2," "Frozen 2," and a new king of the pride "New Lion King."

Officially titled "Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2" is finally coming out on Nov. 21, 2018. It was originally scheduled for March 9, 2018. In fact, it took the spot that was initially intended for Disney's retelling of "Jack and the Beanstalk," "Gigantic" that was moved to Nov. 25, 2020.  

And then, finally, after a series of rumors and endless speculation, "Frozen 2" will hit theaters on Nov. 27, 2019, a Thanksgiving weekend. This confirms what was previously announced as only an "Untitled Disney Animation" slot.

Co-stars Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell, the voices behind Elsa and Anna, respectively, are expected to reprise their roles, although still unconfirmed. But it seems we will be seeing or hearing, more of Josh Gad, voicing the adorkable Olaf, in the 2013 blockbuster's sequel.

And then there's a new King of the pride. A new take on "The Lion King" from "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau will be released on July 19, 2019. Originally, the schedule was reserved to "Indiana Jones 5," but then it was moved to 2020.

Other films that whet your appetite for more of Disney include "A Wrinkle In Time" that is set to a March 9, 2018, release. And the on April 6, 2018, will be "Magic Camp," which is relatively four months earlier than its initial August 2018 schedule.

Also, 2 other "untitled" animated movies, one from Disney and the other from Pixar, have released their schedules. The former will be on Nov. 24, 2021, while the latter will be on June 18, 2021.

These upcoming films, although more or less a year away, certainly are worth looking forward to. But are you excited for Disney's "Frozen 2," "Wreck-It Ralph 2," and a new take on "The Lion King"? Share with us your thoughts below.
