Virus Pandemic Delays Release Of Future Disney Films

Posted by Dustin on July 24, 2020 at 06:44 AM CST

From CNN: The coronavirus pandemic is now disrupting Disney's release schedule for the next decade.

All scheduled "Star Wars" and "Avatar" films between 2021 and 2027 are being pushed back one year, the company announced Thursday. That means there will be no "Avatar 2" next year and no new Star Wars film in 2022.

Disney (DIS) also announced that "Mulan," which was set for an August 21 release date, has been taken off the calendar. The company did not give a new release date for the film, which has been repeatedly delayed since March because of the pandemic.

"Over the last few months, it's become clear that nothing can be set in stone when it comes to how we release films during this global health crisis, and today that means pausing our release plans for 'Mulan' as we assess how we can most effectively bring this film to audiences around the world," a Walt Disney Studios spokesperson said in a statement.

Sad news indeed but could this be what Star Wars needs after the flurry of content Disney and LFL have put out the past several years? The new release schedule is as follows.

December 2023
December 2025
December 2027
