Media behemoth Disney has locked in its schedule for the next eight years, with scores of films planned before 2028.
Most of the movies are sequels or remakes of existing franchises, but there are a few new ones too, like the story of a gorilla named Ivan that lives in a mall, or an adaptation of a webcomic about a feisty shapeshifter.
