The Mouse House moves Mulan live-action to 2020 and schedules many movies up to 2023.
Earlier today, a joyous news for MCU fans arrived as Marvel Studios announced that Avengers: Infinity War is moving up to April 27 release date--one week earlier to the old U.S. release. U.S. viewers now can expect their viewings and discussions at the same time with everywhere in the world.
Mulan is now moved from its 2019 premiere to March 27, 2020--against an untitled G.I Joe live-action movie. Niki Caro (The Zookeeper's Wife) is set to direct this retelling of the 1998 animated movie, with actress Liu Yifei in the titular role and an Asian and Asian-American cast.
Disney's slate also includes more than a handful of superhero flicks, animated wonders, and live-action retellings.
For their new properties and adaptations of animated classics, Disney plans to release two movies in 2019 (October 4 and November 8), four in 2020 (February 14, May 29, October 9, and December 23), five in 2021 (February 12, May 28, July 9, October 8, and December 22), five in 2022 (May 27, July 8, October 7, November 4 and 16), and one on February 17, 2023.
The MCU's Phase Four is slated for three movies in 2021 (May 7, July 30, and November 5) and another three in 2022 (February 18, May 6, and July 29).
Disney also seems to dial down their Pixar movies, with only three movies, each on March 6, 2020 (used to be March 13), March 18, 2022, and June 17, 2022.
Noelle, the Anna Kendrick Christmas comedy, is set for Disney's upcoming streaming platform.
With this huge amount of IPs in the work, fans can expect sequels/spin-offs in the MCU and more original films in the Pixar line.
