2023 Feature Calendar 2023 Feature Calendar

We’re officially two-thirds of the way through the year, so we’ve compiled a list of the animated features still set to debut in 2023.

Not all of the films on this list will get theatrical releases, at least not wide theatrical releases, and the list is subject to change. With the ongoing writers and actors strikes, there have been plenty of rumors that some studios may start holding films back for 2024.

That said, we’re confident that the list below won’t change much in the coming months.
