Upcoming Disney Movies Now Include: Moana 2, Inside Out 2, & More (But Who The Hell Is Elio?)

by Shaye Wyllie

Y’all I found the cutest photo (below) with Disney’s upcoming slate of movies to be released in 2024, 2025, and 2026 on Twitter this week!

But when I posted it in the Black Disney Moms Facebook Group, asking the girls what they were most excited about — a lot of folks stopped to ask “who TF is Elio?” And, sadly I couldn’t answer that question either. Not without looking at my emails.

So I did some research (aka sifted through the emails Disney has sent me over the last few months) and compiled a list of their upcoming movies.

This way, none of us will be confused when they’re dropped. Because let’s be honest, the marketing has been a little dull lately, but that’s why I write about movies right?

And some of these look great! Like Zootopia 2, and Inside Out 2. I just know my girl Anxiety is gonna be my fave! But do we really need a Frozen 3, or Toy Story 5?

Because who the hell are those even for?

Anywho … without further ado, here’s a list of the …

Disney and Pixar’s “Inside Out 2” returns to the mind of newly minted teenager Riley just as headquarters is undergoing a sudden demolition to make room for something entirely unexpected: new Emotions! Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust, who’ve long been running a successful operation by all accounts, aren’t sure how to feel when Anxiety shows up.

And it looks like she’s not alone. Maya Hawke lends her voice to Anxiety, alongside Amy Poehler as the voice of Joy. The voice cast also includes Lewis Black, Phyllis Smith, Tony Hale, and Liza Lapira. The film is directed by Kelsey Mann and produced by Mark Nielsen.

Elio, Releases June 13, 2025

For centuries, people have called out to the universe looking for answers. In Disney and Pixar’s all-new movie “Elio,” the universe calls back!

The original feature film introduces Elio, an underdog with an active imagination who finds himself inadvertently beamed up to the Communiverse, an interplanetary organization with representatives from galaxies far and wide.

Mistakenly identified as Earth’s ambassador to the rest of the universe, and completely unprepared for that kind of pressure, Elio must form new bonds with eccentric alien lifeforms, survive a series of formidable trials and somehow discover who he is truly meant to be. 

Directed by Adrian Molina (screenwriter and co-director of “Coco”) and produced by Mary Alice Drumm (associate producer of “Coco”), the film features the voices of America Ferrera as Elio’s mom, Olga; Jameela Jamil as Ambassador Questa; Brad Garrett as Ambassador Grigon; and Yonas Kibreab as the title character.

“Thunderbolts” is scheduled to be released in 2025, but I don’t have any information on it yet.
