2021 is a new beginning for a numerous amount of things. Some of these things are new movies coming out by none other than Disney. Even though these movies will be viewable on Disney Plus it doesn’t seem like theatres will open anytime soon. If viewers do not have Disney Plus, they’ll probably be out for rent shortly after releasing. Without further ado, here is a list of a few Disney movies coming out in 2021.

1) Cruella

This movie is a live action interpretation of the movie, 101 Dalmatians. The role of Cruella will be played by none other than the actor Emma Stone, and it’s directed by Craig Gillespie. This time, instead of the movie in the dog’s perspective it will be in the villain’s perspective. Talk about a cool twist! The movie will take place in the 70’s but Disney will put a more modern spin. The closest possible release date for this movie will be on May 28, 2021.

2) Jungle Cruise

This is a live action movie, and it’s a remake of the classic Humphrey Bogart movie, The African Queen. The main characters will be played by Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt. The story is about a researcher named Dr. Lily Houghton who travels from London on an expedition to the Amazon Jungle. She’s trying to find a so-called ancient tree with healing abilities. Wow, what a feat! She trusts this man named Frank to guide her there, however there is danger at every corner. The movie is said to release on July 30, 2021.

3) Luca

This is a new Pixar movie, with a completely new concept! It’s set in a seaside town on the Italian Riviera. Though there is not much uncovered about this strange new movie it’s about a boy experiencing an unforgettable summer with his newfound best friend. While there is so much fun, he is threatened by a deep secret…. This movie is said to be released on July 18, 2021. However due to the pandemic, it could be held back.
