After a two year hiatus, Pixar finally releases its first original film, Coco. 

While the Dia de los Muertos adventure film by the award-winning animation studio was just released (November 22), fans are already eyeing the studio’s future films with relish.

Coming up first with the release date of June 15, 2018 is the sequel to The Incredibles a long 14 years after the incredible Parr family made their first appearance. The sequel picks up where and when the original movie left off, with the narrative shifting slightly to feature Elastigirl as she steps into what is, according to director Brad Bird, the “forefront of the action.” In the family’s new house, Mr. Incredible assumes more responsibilities to do with his newfound discovery of baby son Jack-Jack’s powers.

Up next is third sequel to the studio mega hit Toy Story. The fourth installment in the franchise has a release date of June 21, 2019. The sequel  will be produced by Jonas Rivera and directed by Josh Cooley; this will be the first time two former Pixar interns produce and direct one of the studio’s films together. Even though details about the movie’s plot are scarce, there was a behind-the-scenes video that teased the filmmaker’s suggestive research trip in the form of an RV vacation. Beginning anew with the toy box is living a post-Andy era as they are in the possession of young Bonnie, perhaps this time around it’ll be a family vacation adventure.

A third film has yet to be titled or given a release date. An original by Monster’s University’s director Dan Scanlon, the “modern suburban fantasy” takes place in what looks like ordinary suburbia, however, rather than being inhibited by humans, it is populated by elves, trolls, and their fantastical ilk. In a place where magic existed, but has longed disappeared, two teenage brother creatures embark on an adventure and search of a way to spend “one last magical day” with their late father.
