Disney sets 2020 Mulan release date, 7 Marvel releases and more
Following the news that Avengers: Infinity War was moved up a week to April 27, Disney has announced a slew of release dates, including many for movies they are not ready to reveal yet. Most prominent is probably the new Mulan release date. The film was previously scheduled for November 2, 2018 and will now hit theaters on March 27, 2020. Chinese actress Liu Yifei, also known as Crystal Liu, will play the title role in the live-action Mulan film.
There was a previously-scheduled Untitled DisneyToon Studios set for April 12, 2019, but that has now been removed from the schedule. In its place will be Disneynature’s new film, Penguins.
The studio has also removed the Anna Kendrick-starring Nicole from the release schedule. It was going to be opening on November 8, 2019, but there have been rumors it might be going to Disney’s new streaming service instead.
And then we get to the untitled releases for Disney Live-Action and Animation features, Marvel Studios releases, and from Disney•Pixar. Are you ready?
First up are the just-scheduled Disney Live-Action films, coming on: October 4, 2019; November 8, 2019; February 14, 2020; May 29, 2020 (previously April 3, 2020); October 9, 2020; December 23, 2020; February 12, 2021; May 28, 2021; July 9, 2021; October 8, 2021; December 22, 2021; May 27, 2022; July 8, 2022; November 4, 2022; December 16, 2022, and February 17, 2023. There’s also an animated title scheduled on November 23, 2022.
Could some of these be 20th Century Fox films that Disney is already scheduling? We’ll have to wait and find out.
Then there’s the Marvel Studios films that have been scheduled. The studio has moved one from August 7, 2020 to July 31, 2020. And six more have been set for the following dates: May 7, 2021; July 30, 2021; November 5, 2021; February 18, 2022; May 6, 2022; and July 29, 2022.
Last but not least are the Pixar animated films. One has been moved from March 13, 2020 to March 6, 2020, while two others are coming on March 18, 2022 and June 17, 2022.
In other words, get ready for a lot of Disney movies!
