Disney had a busy 2015, releasing films like "Inside Out" and "The Good Dinosaur." And In 2016 the studio shows no signs of slowing down. Disney is ready to roll out some brand new animated features, a few remakes and a sequel six years in the making.
Here are seven Disney movies that will be released in 2016:
This animated Disney movie takes place in an all animal city called Zootopia where a fox, voiced by Jason Bateman, is "framed for a crime he didn't commit." The city's top cop, a rabbit voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin is after him before they both get caught up in a conspiracy, which eventually leads to a friendship. Idris Elba and J.K. Simmons also appear in the film as Elba voices Chief Bogo and Simmons voices Mayor Lionheart. "Zootopia" arrives March 4.
2. "Jungle Book"
The 1967 animated classic comes to life thanks to "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau. "The Jungle Book" tells the story of a boy named Mowgli (Neel Sethi) who is raised by animals in the jungle. The movie has an all star cast with Scarlett Johansson, Bill Murray, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong'o, Christopher Walken and Ben Kingsley. "The Jungle Book" hits theaters April 15.
3. "Finding Dory"
Fans of "Finding Nemo" have been waiting years for this: The sequel will finally arrive in 2016. Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) will be looking for her family with the help of Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo (Hayden Rolence). The forgetful fish will also learn about "the true meaning of family" along the way. "Finding Dory" will be released June 17.
4. "Alice: Through the Looking Glass"
Six years after Tim Burton directed the remake, Alice (Mia Wasikowska) will return to Wonderland to save the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) from Time (Sacha Baron Cohen). Alice will quickly learn Wonderland has gone through many changes in the years she's been gone and is now darker. "Alice: Through the Looking Glass" hits theaters May 27.
5. "The BFG"
"The BFG" or "Big Friendly Giant" is based on the popular children's book written by Ronald Dahl in 1982. Steven Spielberg directs this adaption about a girl named Sophie (Ruby Barnhill) coming across a giant (Bill Hader), who turns out to be kind, unlike the other giants who choose to eat children. "The BFG" arrives July 1.
6. "Pete's Dragon"
Bryce Dallas Howard stars in this remake of the 1977 Disney movie. An orphan looks to get away from "abusive adoptive parents" when he befriends a pet dragon. Robert Redford and "American Horror Story" star Wes Bentley will also be in the movie. "Pete's Dragon" will fly into theaters Aug. 12.
A young girl named Moana (Auli'i Cravalho) is in search of a "fabled island" in this animated flick. She will use her acute sense of direction to find it along with the help of a demigod named Maui (Dwayne Johnson). People reported Moana is the next Disney princess and Cravalho said Moana is going to be an "amazing character."
"She’s brave, she is so empowered, she knows what she wants and she’s not afraid to get it, and I think that’s something that I can relate to as well," Cravalho dished. "I just love watching how she goes along in this wonderful movie and grows as a person and helps her culture along the way."
"Moana" is expected to be released Nov. 23.
