Disney has announced that as part of its 100th anniversary celebration, it will be hosting special theatrical re-releases of eight classic studio films – all but one are animated.
Each film will have a limited two-week run and will air consecutively over the course of four months. Tickets are already available through Fandango.
The films include a mix of some of the most acclaimed Mouse House films of all time, including three Pixar titles and four Disney animated titles.
The schedule is as follows:
July 7-20: “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl”
July 21-August 3: “Toy Story”
August 4-August 17: “Frozen”
August 18-31: “Beauty and the Beast” (1991)
September 1-14: “The Incredibles”
September 15-28: “Coco”
September 29-October 12: “The Lion King” (1994)
October 13-26: “Moana”
The release dates come as Disney also announced that Lin Manuel-Miranda’s Broadway musical “Hamilton,” which premiered on Disney+ in July 2020 with a live stage recording from 2015, gets a unique version.
The American Film Institute named this 2020 milestone recording one of the best films of that year. This unique version, which features lyrics at the bottom for audiences to sing along to, premieres this Friday, June 30 on the Disney+ service.
