Incredibles 2 Opening Begins Right After the Original

On Friday afternoon Disney chief Alan Horn and Disney animation guru John Lasseter took the stage for almost two hours to tease upcoming films from Pixar, Disney Animation, and Disneytoon Studios.

Although we don't have many details on the plot yet, judging from this Gizmodo piece, the basic premise is what happens when Disney meets the internet. With the working title of Space (as in "this Space to be filled with a title when we think of one"), the film teased two supersonic jets racing through the sky before being soundly thrashed by a high speed craft flies in from the upper atmosphere.

Josh Cooley is stepping up as the sole director of "Toy Story 4". The entire original cast will be back in the short that takes place during the first winter since Anna and Elsa have reopened the castle. That's where Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz travel in the 2018 installment, with the help of Henson's new character, Yesss (and, yes, that's how it's spelled). Lasseter said they don't really like that title either, so he thought they'd look up what "2" is in Norwegian and it's "To".

"Ralph Breaks the Internet" is now scheduled to open November 21, 2018.

Next, Lasseter returned to the stage to discuss the return of the long-awaited "Incredibles 2".

Toy Story 4, the followup to 2010's emotional Toy Story 3, has had a change in directors. Produced by Clark Spencer (Zootopia, Wreck-It Ralph, Bolt), Wreck-It Ralph 2 will feature the return of stars John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch and Jack McBrayer. Ralph and Vanellope battle pop-up ads as they make their way through the internet as seen in the trailer. They'll also get a new house, thanks to the destruction caused by Jack-Jack at the end of the first film. The untitled sound-barrier breaking film is slated for April 12 2019. After spending his whole life wondering about his father and what type of person he was, Scanlon channeled those emotions into this film that he called a quest to find one's meaning. Scanlon said it was a recording of his father's voice, a simple "hi" and "bye" that inspired him to develop the story.

Coco is Pixar's next movie, set to be released on November 22, 2017, while Frozen 2 is undoubtedly the studio's most anticipated movie among young children around the world.
