As we approach 2022, we take a look at what’s coming to Disney+ in 2022 from Pixar. Which includes two feature films and a brand new series, plus hopefully some new Sparkshorts.
It’s important to note, this list is subject to change and there might also be more content announced at a later date.
Here’s the rundown:
Turning Red, a new feature film that introduces Mei Lee, a confident, dorky13-year-old torn between staying her mother’s dutiful daughter and the chaos of adolescence. And as if changes to her interests, relationships and body weren’t enough, whenever she gets too excited (which for a teenager is practically ALWAYS), she “poofs” into a giant red panda! Turning Red is directed by Academy Award winner Domee Shi (Pixar short “Bao”) and produced by Lindsey Collins.
“Turning Red” is coming out in cinemas on March 11th, 2022. So we can expect to see the film released on Disney+ at some point in 2022.
There will also be a behind-the-scenes documentary coming exclusively to Disney+ in 2022.
“Lightyear” is a sci-fi action-adventure and the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear (voice of Chris Evans)—the hero who inspired the toy. The film reveals how a young test pilot became the Space Ranger that we all know him to be today. Lightyear is directed by Angus MacLane and produced by Galyn Susman.
“Lightyear” is slated to open in theatres27 on June 17th, 2022 and will be coming to Disney+ later in 2022.
