Disney's Lion King and Frozen 2 Both Get 2019 Release Dates

Disney's Lion King and Frozen 2 Both Get 2019 Release Dates

Just when you thought that the never-ending Frozen hype had started to die down ever so slightly amongst adults and kids alike, Disney Animation Studios took to Twitter on Tuesday to reveal the release date for the sequel.

Disney announced a raft of dates for its forthcoming movies going up to November 2021, many of which are simply described as Untitled Marvel, Untitled Pixar or Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (live action). That's nearly exactly six years since the original took over the world, and directing duo Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee will be back and hoping for more of the same.

It's expected that Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel will return to their roles of princess sisters Anna and Elsa, so expect some more epic songs.

Segantii Capital Management Ltd raised its position in shares of HSBC Holdings plc by 1,894.7% in the third quarter. The firm bought 9,672 shares of the financial services provider's stock, valued at approximately $394,000.


That fills the slot left by Gigantic, Disney's new take on the Jack and the Beanstalk story, which has been delayed by two years, with a new release date of November 25, 2020. "The Lion King (Live Action)" film featuring James Earl and Donald Glover will be directed by Jon Favreau, and it will come out in July of 2019.

In other moves, Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle in Time is now set for March 9, 2018, while the Steve Martin-written comedy Magic Camp hits a month later on April 6. Disney has set a release date for the follow-up to its massive animated hit Frozen. Let us know down in the comments.

So whether you're a fan of the Disney film or a not, it seems like "Frozen" will not be let go anytime soon.
