Walt Disney released a number of trailers of upcoming movies early year, including new ones from Marvel Studios.

The much-celebrated “Toy Story” franchise will have its third sequel after nearly nine years since the last.

Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack and other popular celebrities will reprise their roles as the well-loved toys of Andy as they set out on their misadventures.

Based on the channel of Disney-Pixar, the plot of the new film to be released on June 21 features a new toy Forky and a fateful road trip.

Dumbo

Walt Disney’s award-winning animated film “Dumbo” has its live-action remake on March 29, decades after the original was released in 1941.

The new star-studded cast includes Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito, Eva Green and Michael Keaton.

Directed by visionary Tim Burton, the plot of the remake still revolves around Dumbo, the flying baby elephant, but the rest of the details were made different.

Aladdin

The 1992 classic animated “Aladdin” also has its live-action remake to be released on May 24.

Disney released its second trailer this February which revealed that the iconic blue Genie, once voiced by late comedian Robin William, will be played by Will Smith. Many fans, however, were creeped out seeing Smith as a magical blue creature.

Canadian actor Mena Massoud stars as Aladdin and British actress Naomi Scott as Jasmine.

Frozen 2

Disney’s “Frozen” finally has its much-anticipated sequel on November 22.
