Keep in mind that these are only the films with set release dates at the moment and do not include any documentaries, Marvel films, or Star Wars films. Also, since I’m now reviewing Disney+ films, I will be including them in this list. So, sit back and enjoy!

Upcoming Live-Action Disney Films in 2020

It’s that time of year again wherein I take a break from the reviews until January. Before I go on my hiatus, I’ll leave you with a list of the live-action Disney films set to hit theaters next year that I plan on reviewing here. Let me know which films you’re looking forward to!

(Keep in mind that these are only the theatrically-released live-action Disney films that are eligible to be reviewed on my blog. Hence, there will be no Star Wars, Marvel Studios, or documentary films listed. I also haven’t decided whether or not to review Disney+ original films yet. Finally, keep in mind that these dates are tentative and subject to change. Enjoy!)

Mary Poppins Returns (2018)

(If this is your first time on this blog, I ask you to read my About page first! You can find a link to it at the top left-hand corner of this blog. Thanks!)

When I had first heard that they were making a sequel to Mary Poppins, I was quite opposed to it! Mary Poppins is my absolute favorite live-action Disney film and a cinema classic at that! It didn’t need a sequel!

But I mellowed toward the idea for one particular reason: this sequel was coming out during the current era we are in of Disney making live-action remakes of their animated films. As I’ve made very clearly multiple times in the past, I’m against those remakes, in principle, as I feel they disparage the medium of animation. So because this would be a live-action sequel to a live-action film rather than a live-action remake of an animated film, I opened my heart a bit to its existence.

The film would be directed by Rob Marshall who previously directed Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Into the Woods for Disney. While I wasn’t in love with either film, I had hope that maybe he could do something satisfactory with this remake. Did it turn out practically perfect in every way? Here’s my review of Mary Poppins Returns!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!

The Muppets (2011)

The Muppets never appeared in a theatrical film since the 1999 film, Muppets in Space. So when the news was released that the Muppets were gonna be in a new theatrical film in 2011, we were all super excited to see them again on the big screen! Did the film meet our expectations or was it a disappointment? Let’s find out via my review of The Muppets!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!

But, keep in mind that these are only the live-action films that I will review for this blog, hence there will be no Star Wars or Marvel Studios-related films on this list. Also keep in mind that these dates are liable to change at any time! Enjoy!

Into the Woods (2014)

Today’s film is based on a musical that I had never heard of before much less heard of the songs before. But apparently, it’s a pretty big deal. Although it didn’t have the fame of musicals such as Les Misérables or The Phantom of the Opera, fans considered it of the same caliber.

I didn’t really know what to expect while watching this other than the fact that there were going to be about a bunch of fairy tale characters in one setting.

I had some familiarity with that already.

So was this film a good way to get me acquainted with the musical? Well, let’s take a look.
