Now that 2024 is here, movie fans know what that means — it's time for new Disney movies!
Keep in mind that Disney has acquired several studios now. After obtaining such huge companies as Pixar, Lucasfilm, Marvel and 20th Century Studios, the Disney movies are far from limited to the ones involving princesses, musicals, and daring knights. Disney now has superheroes, fighting apes and so much more.
If Disney fans are looking for new movies to check out in 2024, here are some coming to a local AMC Theatre near you.
Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes
Beginning a new trilogy in the PLANET OF THE APES franchise, KINGDOM OF THE PLANET OF THE APES follows Noa, a common chimpanzee, who goes on a hero's journey across the states with a human girl to save Apekind and the few remaining humans.
The film takes place centuries after the last film in the franchise and stars Owen Teague, Freya Allen, Kevin Durand, William H. Macy and many others. Wes Ball directed the feature film.

Inside Out 2
Pixar asked the question in 2015, "What if feelings had feelings?" That's the question INSIDE OUT, a film that earned many accolades, answered. Pixar is returning for round two with INSIDE OUT 2, this time following the same emotions movie fans know and love — but in the mind of a teenage Riley.
Entering into her teen years, Riley's emotions must learn to live with the new feelings that have suddenly appeared in her head as she grows older — including Anxiety, one of the most prominent ones.
INSIDE OUT 2 brings back Amy Poehler as Joy, Phyllis Smith as Sadness, Lewis Black as Anger, and also brings in Tony Hale to voice Fear and Liza Lapira to voice Disgust. Maya Hawke is also voicing one of the new emotions, Anxiety. Kelsey Mann directs the movie.

While this isn't a kid's film, it will surely be the Marvel movie to see this year — as it's the only one set to be released in 2024. DEADPOOL 3 comes from Marvel and will serve as the introduction of Deadpool to the official Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The story details for DEADPOOL 3 have remained under wraps, but movie fans do know that Ryan Reynolds will be back to play the masked antihero and that Hugh Jackman is suiting up again to play Wolverine in the film. Additional cast members include Morena Baccarin, Brianna Hildebrand, Leslie Uggams, Jennifer Garner and more. Shawn Levy directs DEADPOOL 3.
