Disney announced that a live-action prequel to The Lion King, titled Mufasa, would be making its way to theaters in 2024, and it officially confirmed that Inside Out 2 was happening. One film that has been in the works for a while has been the live-action Snow White film starring Rachel Zegler as the princess and, just recently, leaked footage from the film was released.

Now, Disney has updated its release calendar to include these films and several others.

Disney announced that all three of these films will release in 2024.

Snow White will release on March 22, 2024. Inside Out 2 will follow that film with a June 14, 2024 release date, and then, Mufasa, director Barry Jenkins, will release less than a month later on July 5, 2024. While Disney has not confirmed, the expectation is that all three of these films will be theatrical releases with Disney+ debuts at a later point. However, much can change in two years’ time.
