Must read

Disney took the stage at CinemaCon 2023 and shared a ton of new details, clips, and trailers for its upcoming films, including Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, Elemental, Wish, The Little Mermaid, A Haunting in Venice, and many more.

IGN was in attendance at Disney's CinemaCon showcase and this article will share all you need to know about the biggest Disney movies headed to a theater near you in the future.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny Gets an Action-Packed Clip at CinemaCon 2023

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is almost here, and Disney brought a brand-new action-packed clip to CinemaCon 2023 to help with the wait featuring Indy and Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Helena chasing Mads Mikkelsen's J├╝rgen Voller by car.

The clip saw our heroes running and driving through the streets of Tangiers, and we get some lovely and entertaining banter between Indy and Helena throughout the process. Helena proves she is just as much of a force to be reckoned with as Indy, and Indy can't help but yell as she performs one dangerous stunt after another.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will be released in theaters on June 30, 2023.

Elemental Gets a 20-Minute Extended Look at Disney's CinemaCon 2023 Showcase

At CinemaCon 2023, Disney revealed a 20-minute extended look at the beginning of Pixar's Elemental, the upcoming film that looks to explore the perceived differences between the fire, water, land, and air-residents of Element City and how they all have much more in common than they believe.

The clip introduces us to Ember (Leah Lewis) as a baby and the moment when her parents, Bernie and Cinder, arrive at Element City. We are shown snippets of Ember's life and learn she has a quick temper and has an attitude of "elements don't mix."

Her family owns a shop in town and she is shown helping run it at times and getting angry at customers fairly often. On one particular day, her anger gets the best of her and she causes a flood in the store's basement. This leads to Ember meeting Wade (Mamoudou Athie), a water resident who is also a city inspector that is going to give her a ticket for the shop's piping not being up to code.

The clip ends as Ember chases Wade through Element City as he tries to get her violation back to city hall.

Element will be released in theaters on June 16, 2023.

Wish Adds Chris Pine as King Magnifico as Disney Reveals New Footage at CinemaCon 2023

At CinemaCon 2023, Disney revealed that Wish will be adding Chris Pine to its cast as King Magnifico. Additionally, the studio shared brand-new footage for the upcoming Walt Disney Animation film that is set to be released in theaters on November 22, 2023.

The clip follows Ariana DeBose's Asha as she runs through the woods and a village that is on an island off the coast of Iberia. She is followed by a goat named Valentino (Alan Tudyk) and begins singing a song. We cut to her singing from different locations and staring at the stars.

Wish is meant to celebrate "the legacy of Walt Disney's vision" and looks to explore "how the iconic wishing star came to be."

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, The Little Mermaid, and Haunted Mansion all got exclusive clips at Disney's CinemaCon 2023 showcase, and fans of these films are in for a treat.

The Guardians clip was focused on our heroes in their colorful spacesuits and it was an extended version of one we've seen before. It starts as an emotional scene between Star Lord and Gamora before they realize the entire crew has been listening in.

The Little Mermaid clip was of Melissa McCarthy's Ursula and gave fans a first look at her performance of the famous song 'Poor Unfortunate Souls.'

As for Haunted Mansion, the clip for that upcoming film featured Owen Wilson's Kent pulling on a sconce and breaking it off, LaKeith Stanfield's Ben Matthias opening up a secret passageway by putting his fingers into the eyes of a wall painting, and more.

Branagh once again plays famed detective Hercule Poirot and the film, which is set in a post-World War II Venice on All Hallows' Eve, sees Poirot attending a "seance at a decaying, haunted palazzo." Shortly thereafter, a guest is murdered and Poirot must do what he does best and figure out what is really going on.
