What’s next from Disney? The release schedule for Ireland
Coming off from one of the biggest releases of 2015, Avengers Age of Ultron, Walt Disney Pictures seems to have no interest in slowing things down in the foreseeable future. No rest for the wicked, I guess. Not only with the addition of the Marvel superhero universe and the sacred catalogue of Lucasfilm, the one with the rights to Star Wars and Indiana Jones, the house of the mouse (mice, if you include Minnie) has already its machinery at high speed with more than a couple of films eyeing for the movie franchise scheme of late, or a cult-status achievement for an installment… or two.
From blonde female leads staking a claim at the adventure genre, to comedic feel-good animations about the human brain, and without forgetting the latest additions to both Marvel and Star Wars, which by the way it’s said to break the mother of all records this Christmas, take a look at the Disney calendar with Irish dates for the next year.

From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney•Pixar’s original movie “Inside Out,” he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind.
Do you ever look at someone and wonder what is going on inside their head? Disney•Pixar’s original new film “Inside Out” ventures inside the mind to find out.
Based in Headquarters, the control center inside 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five Emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy (voice of Amy Poehler), whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. Fear (voice of Bill Hader) heads up safety, Anger (voice of Lewis Black) ensures all is fair and Disgust (voice of Mindy Kaling) prevents Riley from getting poisoned—both physically and socially. Sadness (voice of Phyllis Smith) isn’t exactly sure what her role is, and frankly, neither is anyone else.
When Riley’s family relocates to a scary new city, the Emotions are on the job, eager to help guide her through the difficult transition. But when Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley’s mind—taking some of her core memories with them—Fear, Anger and Disgust are left reluctantly in charge. Joy and Sadness must venture through unfamiliar places—Long Term Memory, Imagination Land, Abstract Thought and Dream Productions—in a desperate effort to get back to Headquarters, and Riley.

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootropolis is a city like no other.

But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery.
