The big-name cinema franchises releasing an installment this fall: 'It,' 'Frozen,' 'Star Wars,' 'Rambo' and 'Maleficent'

Fans of "It," "Maleficent," and "Frozen" had to wait two to six years to be reunited with their favorite silver-screen characters. From now until the end of the year, John Rambo, Pennywise, Aurora, Elsa and Rey will respectively reprise their roles in "Rambo: Last Blood," "It Chapter 2," " Maleficent: Mistress of Evil," "Frozen 2" and " Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker." 

It Chapter 2

The evil Pennywise still has unfinished business with the members of the Losers' Club. Director Andy Muschietti is back behind the camera for the sequel of the 2017 reboot adapted from Stephen King's novel. James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain and Bill Hader will be respectively playing the roles of the now grown-up Bill, Beverly and Richie. Back in Derry to get even with the maleficent clown, the band will be back together to face their greatest fears.

Fans had to wait over six years to see Elsa and Anna on the big screen once again, with the young girl with the extraordinary powers setting out to find the origins of her gift, putting her kingdom in danger through her quest for truth.
