Disney Unveils New Release Dates for Star Wars, Avatar Movies

Disney has unveiled a series of launch date modifications, with the most important news being that every one upcoming Star Wars and Avatar films have been pushed back by a year. Instead of releasing seven of them alternately between 2021 and 2027, they are going to now come out between 2022 and 2028. Three Star Wars movies — the primary reportedly Taika Waititi’s — are set for December 22, 2023, December 19, 2025, and December 17, 2027. Avatar takes up the opposite 4 slots, with Avatar 2 on December 16, 2022, Avatar three on December 20, 2024, Avatar Four on December 18, 2026, and Avatar 5 on December 22, 2028.

The delay on Avatar 2 has been necessitated by the continuing coronavirus pandemic, producer and director James Cameron said in a letter posted on Avatar’s social media feeds: “Due to COVID-19, we were forced into an unexpected lengthy delay in starting the live action filming we are currently doing in New Zealand. What most of you likely do not know is that the pandemic is still preventing us from being allowed to recommence most of our virtual production work on stages in Los Angeles. Prior to COVID-19, everything was on track to bring you the first sequel in December of 2021. Unfortunately, due to the impact that the pandemic has had on our schedule, it is no longer possible for us to make that date.”

Avatar 2 is not the one Disney movie that is been affected by the pandemic. The live-action reimagining of Mulan — which had been repeatedly delayed and was slated for August 21 — has now been taken off the discharge calendar fully, days after Warner Bros. did the identical for Christopher Nolan’s Tenet (beforehand set for August 12). Weirdly although, Disney hasn’t moved the X-Men horror spin-off The New Mutants from August 28, which can also be the brand new launch date for the Dev Patel-led The Personal History of David Copperfield from Disney-owned Searchlight Pictures. It’s unclear if these movies are concentrating on a restricted launch in nations the place theatres are open, or if they are going to be delayed once more.

Beyond that, in 2020, we’ve got Matthew Vaughn’s World War I spy prequel The King’s Man on September 18, Kenneth Branagh’s homicide thriller Death on the Nile pushed back two weeks to October 23, the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Four opener Black Widow on November 6, the Ben Affleck, Ana de Armas-starrer erotic thriller Deep Water on November 13, Pixar’s subsequent movie Soul on November 20, the supernatural horror movie The Empty Man delayed 4 months to December 4, Ryan Reynold’s motion journey Free Guy for December 11, and Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story remake on December 18. Given the state of affairs although, anticipate these movies to be moved round.

And lastly, Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch — set for October 16 — would not have a launch date anymore, as with Mulan.
