While the studio previously announced the release dates for some of the films mentioned above, some reshuffling has been done to prioritize particular properties.

Coming out next year

The sequel, titled "Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2," will reportedly be taking place six years after the events of the original film and will see Ralph and his friends take on a new adventure on the internet after a Wi-Fi router is placed into the arcade.

The Nov. 21 release date was originally pegged for Disney's new "Jack and the Beanstalk" remake, titled "Gigantic." The movie has now been moved to a Nov. 2020, release date to make way for the "Wreck-It Ralph" sequel.

Potential blockbusters in 2019 and beyond

The upcoming live-action adaptation of the classic "Lion King" movie, which will be directed by "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau, is now revealed to arrive on July 19, 2019. There isn't a lot of information yet about the movie, but reports have revealed that Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner are apparently already in talks to voice Timon and Pumba.
