‘Star Wars,’ ‘Frozen 2’ And ‘The Lion King’: Disney Unleashes A Barrage Of Release Dates


Disney just unveiled a bevy of release dates for its upcoming slate, not the least of which is Star Wars: Episode IX (in 3D) which will bow on May 24, in 2019. In addition, it removed the mystery around the untitled animation title previously announced on Nov. 27 in 2019. It will be the highly anticipated sequel to Frozen. Also, they have pegged the live-action The Lion King (also in 3D) based on the animated worldwide smash hit to July 19, 2019.

Other news is that the new Indiana Jones movie has been pushed back by a year. The film is now set for release on July 10, 2020 (instead of the previous July 19, 2019). Another film being pushed — this one by two years — is its 3D film Gigantic — the animated musical based on the Jack and the Beanstalk story. Gigantic leaves the Thanksgiving spot in 2018 and enters the holiday spot on Nov. 25 of 2020.

In addition, the final title is Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 for the Wreck-It Ralph Sequel; it is also moving the film from March 9 of 2018 to the Thanksgiving holiday on Nov. 21, 2018.

It’s also moving up Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time (in 3D) which is based on the book of the same name and stars Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Rowan Blanchard and Zach Galifianakis. The film, previously dated on April 6, 2018 now gets pulled up to March 9, 2018.

Also, the studio revealed that the live-action film it had dated on Aug. 3, 2018 will be Magic Camp and it’s now scheduled for April 6, 2018, taking the place of A Wrinkle In Time.

It appears that Toy Story 4 is still on schedule for June 21, 2019 as is Marvel’s Captain Marvel for March 8 of the same year.
