2023 Feature Calendar 2023 Feature Calendar

UPDATED: Though there’s less than three months remaining in 2023, there’s still plenty of animation headed our way. Here’s a calendar of animated feature release in the U.S. through the end of the year.

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 actors strike, there have been plenty of discussion about how some studios may start holding films back for 2024.

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