Disney Previews 'Toy Story 4', 'Avengers 4' And More At CineEurope

Disney Previews 'Toy Story 4', 'Avengers 4' And More At CineEurope

Disney has been killing it recently, not only with the quality of the movies it's been putting out, but in terms of its box office returns. In the first five months of this year alone, it's already passed the $4 billion (£3bn) in admissions. Not bad.

But there's even better news for cinema goers - at the CineEurope trade showcase in Barcelona yesterday, Disney previewed a number of its forthcoming projects, including Toy Story 4, with audiences getting to see the first clip from the highly anticipated animation.

The fourth installment in the adventures of Buzz Lightyear and the other toys has been a long time coming - it'll be nine years since the release of Toy Story 3 when the new movie comes out next year.

Directed by Josh Cooley - who was a storyboard artist for the likes of The Incredibles, Cars, Ratatouille and the wonderful but heartbreaking Up - Toy Story 4 is set for release next June.

Lucky conference goers were treated to some exclusive early footage of the film, which makes us incredibly jealous because we're genuinely thrilled about the fact it's finally coming out. Who isn't, right?

But that's not all there is to be excited about. That's because, since 2009, Disney has owned Marvel, which has in turn pretty much owned the superhero movie landscape in recent years, and it shows no signs of slowing down.

While celebrating its 10 year anniversary - and the $16 billion it's made in that time - Marvel Studios also offered up some sneak previews at CineEurope.

Not only were attendees treated to a sneak peak of the as-yet-untitled fourth Avengers movie, set for release in spring next year, but they also got early looks at Captain Marvel, which stars Brie Larson and is scheduled for release in March 2019.

Scenes from the soon-to-be-released Ant Man and the Wasp, starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, were also shown.

It didn't stop there, either. Disney unveiled clips of some of its forthcoming live-action offerings, including Mary Poppins Returns and The Nutcracker And The Four Realms, two movies looking to cash in on Christmas cheer.

The premiere of the trailer for Tim Burton's version of Dumbo, some 78 years after the original was made, was also on offer, as were behind-the-scenes looks at remakes of Aladdin (which stars Will Smith and is directed by Guy Ritchie) and The Lion King, which is directed by Swinger­s star Jon Favreau.
