NEW YORK, April 8 (UPI) -- The Walt Disney Studios unveiled at a New York news conference Tuesday a slate of 10 animated feature movies to be released through 2012.

The lineup includes new movies from Disney and Pixar's filmmakers, featuring the vocal performances of stars such as John Travolta and Miley Cyrus in "Bolt;" Reese Witherspoon, Billy Connolly and Emma Thompson in "The Bear and the Bow;" Anika Noni Rose and John Goodman in "The Princess and the Frog;" and Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and the rest of the "Toy Story" ensemble in "Toy Story 3."

The roster includes six films from Pixar Animation Studios, four from Walt Disney Animation Studios and the first four in a series of direct-to-DVD films featuring Disney Fairies from DisneyToon Studios.

"We're excited to be pushing the boundaries of 3-D and computer technology to tell our stories in the best possible way," John Lasseter, chief creative officer for Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios, said in a statement. "At the same time, we're drawing on our past to emphasize memorable characters, original edge-of-your-seat stories, and believable worlds."
