Disney Schedule Through 2012

Walt Disney Pictures logo

Disney has announced the ten animated feature films that make up their new release schedule through 2012. Plus some Tinker Bell direct to video bits. And you really don’t want the hoobah of the press release talking about how great it is and ooh aren’t we lovely. No, let’s cut straight to the list.

Oh, wait. You do want to know this bit, though:

Starting later this year with the release of Disney’s “Bolt,” all Disney and Pixar animated features will be presented in state-of-the-art Disney Digital 3-D(TM). Additionally, newly converted 3-D versions of the beloved classics, “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2,” are set to debut in 2009 and 2010 respectively. Films are not presently scheduled past 2012 due to the impending singularity, or as John Hodgman would call it: Ragnarok.

That last part we had mentioned previously. And I’ll go ahead and tell you: Incredibles 2 is not on the list. Damn you, Disney. Damn you for breaking my heart. Again.

Oh, one last thing–where is Chazzie-award winning director Brad Bird? Making a live action co-produced film for Warner Brothers and Disney/Pixar, apparently, so he’s not on the list. Come back, Brad! Bring me my Incredibles sequel! Please!

Okay, list. What follows is trimmed from their press release. Our additions and comments are in italics.
