Disney Release Schedule for the Next Eight Years

Some may have figured out that Disney did some changes to the upcoming Disney-Fox release schedule. Internet bloggers (us included) have been tripping over our respective boners to see – if anything – new was added to the list. Fox is now part of Disney, so Disney release schedule has to be worked out for ready-to-release, as well as movie in or going into production. Not to mention some Fox properties are switching over to Disney or Marvel – like X-Men projects.

Some highlights of the changes are as follows:

  • Fox’s The New Mutants has been delayed again. The movie was slated for release in 2019, after Phoenix Rising. However, the project was delayed even before the sale happened to August 2019. Now, Disney has pushed it to May 29, 2020. While many in the internet blog-o-sphere are complaining about the change, they aren’t looking at the dates. August is generally the “February” release date of summer. Movies that would not match up to the summer box office get an August release date. Putting this at the heart of the Memorial Day/summer season is a positive note.
  • The long-gestating Gambit movie has been removed off the schedule. Now, many uninformed sites are calling it dead. However, the project has been dead for a while. No directors were attached to the project. It seemed even Channing Tatum himself has lost interest. Not to mention, Marvel doesn’t announce things until plans are set. So, if there will ever be a Gambit movie, you won’t be hearing about it for a long while.
  • 2021 could be a difficult year for Avatar and Indiana Jones Avatar, which was originally slated for a 2020 release, will be coming out in 2021. Personally, I still don’t believe this movie is coming out until the actual movie begins and I’m in my seat. From 2021, the alternating Avatar and new Star Wars trilogy will be coming out. Obviously, we will get more news on that when Disney decides to announce their franchise plans later this year. But, it looks like every holiday from 2021 to 2027 will have either a Star Wars or Avatar film on the schedule.
  • As for Indiana Jones fans, if you are still not over the whole Kingdom of the Crystal Skull thing, you will have a new film to focus your ire on. Disney officially announced a release date for their untitled Indiana Jones movie for July 9, 2021.
  • Disney has announced a December 2020 release date for the live-action film Cruella, which is poised to star Emma Stoneas the titular 101 Dalmatians
