Is this Giants?

Seems possible, but have towards the end dates that are wrong. For example Illumination project on 12/21 and SW spinoff on 12/31, I have seen the end of the year used before when the date is unknown. Then Tintin 2 dated, which its not.

From what it looks like, the 3/4/16 project is Zootopia, this is Giants, and the 3/9/18 project is Moana.

I still need a new Disney musical by 2015, so the Good Dinosaur needs to move to march 2016 and Zootopia to this date. Ain't happening though lol.

Speaking of TGD (don't want to bump that thread because it's not really news) it seems Pete Sohn has indeed quietly become the main director

 

Anyway, this is the November 2016 thread. Moving Zootopia here won't help Dingdong's cause.

Also, I don't think Zootopia is a musical.

Thanksgiving makes more sense for Giants, if it is a musical.

 

Zootopia will be interesting, to see if that March release date works for Disney. They haven't really put anything earlier than April before, and in those cases (Home on the Range, Meet the Robinsons) it didn't work out that well. And other studios have been hit and miss in the spring.

 

Pity the schedule Disney's made doesn't allow a lot of fluctuation. Two Pixars next year, two WDAS & a Pixar in 2016, two Pixars again in 2017, and then two WDAS and a Pixar in 2018. They may be having Pixar do too much. I think both studios work better if they're only doing one film a year.

Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed plans today for Moana, a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors' quest. In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog, Aladdin).

"John and I have partnered on so many films - from 'The Little Mermaid' to 'Aladdin' to 'The Princess and the Frog,'" said Clements. "Creating 'Moana' is one of the great thrills of our career. It's a big adventure set in this beautiful world of Oceania."

In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.

"Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself," Musker said. "She's the kind of character we all root for, and we can't wait to introduce her to audiences."

This is the one I'm anticipating most on Disney's current slate. And in my opinion it's the one most likely to follow in Frozen's footsteps.

 

Fingers crossed for some wonderful songs as well.  :circles:

^ There was some rumours before that Moana was getting along better than Giants that had some issues so this was pretty expected. Giants should be still coming out.

Having a new Disney film with a female lead before Giants is a good move anyway. I am so excited about this, I have been waiting that either this or Giants gets confirmed forever.

Maybe it's being retooled to get rid of that ridiculous title?

 

Just call it Jack & The Beanstalk if that's what it is. Stupid 'twist' titles.
