Sundries coming out of Disney CEO Bob Iger’s Q1 earnings call:
—Zootopia 2 is hitting cinemas over the Thanksgiving break on Nov. 26, 2025. First movie grossed over a $1 billion and won Best Animated Film of the year at the Oscars 2017.
-20th Century Studios’ Alien reboot movie from Fede Alvarez is now known as Alien: Romulus. Pic’s blurb: Young people from a distant world must face the most terrifying life form in the universe. The movie is still set for Aug. 16 this year. Pic stars Priscilla’s Cailee Spaeny, Isabela Merced, Aileen Wu, Spike Fearn, David Jonsson, and Archie Renaux. The new feature creature from outer space movie is not connected to the FX series that Noah Hawley is behind.
Also as Iger mentioned, Moana 2, assembled from a Disney+ series, will be hitting cinemas on Nov. 27 this year. Disney has always had that holiday five-day stretch on reserve for a family animated movie.
