“Incredibles 2” and “Cars 3” scored release dates from Disney-Pixar on Thursday.

Brad Bird‘s “Incredibles” sequel will hit theaters on June 21, 2019, while the third “Cars” movie will roar into theaters on June 16, 2017.

Bad news for “Toy Story” fans, though. The fourth film in the beloved franchise about talking toys has been bumped back a year from its original release date to June 15, 2018.

Pixar fans can also expect the new, previously titled animated film “Coco” to hit theaters on Nov. 22, 2017.

And Disney Animation has set a March 9, 2018 release date for its new film “Gigantic.” Both films were announced at the D23 Expo in August, but the titles and release dates have now been officially slated on the Disney roster.

“Gigantic,” a modern re-telling of “Jack and the Beanstalk,” will take place in Spain during the Age of Exploration. Adventure-seeker Jack will ascend the beanstalk and find a whole new world up in the sky as he discovers giants hidden within the clouds.

In addition, Disney set release dates for a series of untitled fairy tales on Dec. 22, 2017; Nov. 2, 2018; March 29, 2019 and Nov. 8, 2019.

Moreover, Disney provided sneak peeks of “Coco” at D23. Although the studio didn’t reveal much information about the film’s plot, Disney executives did say “Toy Story 3” director Lee Unkrich’s film would be based on the Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos.

2004’s “The Incredibles” made $261 million domestically off a $92 million budget. The two “Cars” films made $435 million cumulatively at the domestic box office. However, “Toy Story 3” is the third highest-grossing animated film of all time, after “Frozen” and “Minions,” with a lifetime domestic gross of $415 million. It’s worldwide gross totaled over $1 billion.
