Disney is undoubtedly hoping for 2024 to be one of the company's biggest and most profitable years of all time, so it is currently looking at six particularly heavy-hitting movies as the most crucial to achieving that type of success.

The House of Mouse is well-known for its feature films in animation and live-action, so fans can expect to see a handful of movies in 2024 under both of those umbrellas.
