Ever since they first burst onto the scene with 1995’s Toy Story, Pixar has been busy churning out a steady stream of quality computer-generated tales that the whole family can enjoy.

Over the years, they’ve told bug tales, brought us deep under the sea, convinced us cars can talk, rats can cook and made us cry in more ways than we’d probably care to admit.

However, despite their apparent chokehold on our emotions (oh yeah, they tackled those too), viewers remain glued to every upcoming Pixar release safe in the knowledge that the studio name comes with a certain quality seal that's baked-in.

If, like us, you can’t wait to see what they'll come up with next, then here’s a handy round-up of every upcoming Pixar film that’s heading our way. Be sure to check back, as this list will remain flexible, with new films, release dates and story details added as-and-when they’re revealed.

Originally due in March 2024 before being pushed to early next year, Elio brings Pixar’s animators back among the stars in an intergalactic tale of mistaken identity. In it, we meet the film’s eponymous hero, an 11-year-old boy who’s described as an “underdog with an active imagination.”

When young Elio is accidentally beamed up by aliens, he comes face-to-face with the Communiverse — an interplanetary gathering featuring representatives from all over the galaxy. As if that wasn’t daunting enough, the powers that be think that he’s Earth’s official spokesperson. Time for Elio to meet new friends and become the hero he was always meant to be.

With newcomer Yonas Kibreab voicing Elio, the film also stars the vocal talents of Barbie’s America Ferrera as his mum, and Jameela Jamil and A Bug’s Life star Brad Garrett as Elio’s new alien pals.

Toy Story 5 | 19 June 2026

Some might argue that Toy Story 3 provided the perfect ending for Pixar’s first franchise. Others may think that Toy Story 4 did a pretty great job too. However, if you’re the big boss at Disney, the right time to wrap up the adventures of Buzz Lightyear, Woody and the rest of Andy’s old toys hasn’t arrived just yet.

News of Toy Story 5 was revealed in February 2023 by Disney’s head honcho Bob Iger but since then, there’s not been much new news regarding what this new story might entail or which characters it will focus on. That said, we do know that long-time Pixar filmmaker Andrew Stanton will helm the film.

“Today I’m so pleased to announce that we have sequels in the works from our animation studios to some of our most popular franchises, Toy Story, Frozen and Zootopia,” explained Iger, talking to Disney stakeholders.

“We’ll have more to share about these productions soon, but this is a great example of how we’re leaning into our unrivalled brands and franchises.”
