No additional information has been provided regarding the release dates of creative teams behind the upcoming films.
The news came after Iger revealed that 7,000 employees would be laid off from the company after an earlier earnings report revealed a loss of 2.4 million Disney+ subscribers.
The Frozen sequel will be the third in the franchise. The first came out in 2013, followed by Frozen II in 2019.
The Zootopia sequel will be the first sequel to the 2016 animated film.
Meanwhile, the new Toy Story movie is a sequel to 2019’s Toy Story 4 and last year’s spinoff Lightyear.
