Walt Disney Pictures announced that its two new animated projects Moana and Zootopia will be released in 2016.

Moana was given a November 23, 2016 release date, which doesn't have any direct competition at this time, but it will come just five days before Warner Bros.' Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them on November 18, 2016.

Moana was first announced last month, which follows the title character, a teenager who goes on a quest to fulfill her ancestors' destiny. She teams up with her hero, a demi-god named Maui to explore the South Pacific. Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog, Aladdin) are attached to direct.

Zootopia will be released on March 4, 2016, where it will go up against 20th Century Fox's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Disney first announced the project back in August 2013, which is set in the animal city Zootopia and follows a fox who goes on the run after being falsely accused of committing a crime. When the city's top cop, a rabbit, chases after him, they both become targets of a conspiracy and are forced to work together. Byron Howard (Tangled) is attached to direct from a script by Jared Bush (All of Us).
