Mulan & Black Widow: Disney has announced numerous new launch dates

Disney has had to turn a lot of screws in the past few weeks: The corona crisis has jumbled the cinema calendar so that the mouse company had to find new start dates for numerous postponed blockbusters, which it has now published, as reported, among others, the US industry magazine "Variety" . Among the films are both the real film "Mulan" and the Marvel film "Black Widow".

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), the starting order of five films has shifted: "Black Widow" with Scarlett Johansson (35) will be released on November 6, 2020 in the USA. "The Eternals" (February 12, 2021), "Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" (May 7, 2021), "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" (November 5, 2021) and "Thor: Love & Thunder "(February 18, 2022). "Black Widow" has moved the films back one place. "Black Panther 2", which is still announced for May 8, 2022, is not affected. "Captain Marvel 2" will launch on July 8, 2022.

The Disney remake of "Mulan", which is currently due to go to the cinema, is getting a summer release: The real screen version is scheduled to launch in US cinemas on July 24, 2020. This date was previously reserved for the adventure film "Jungle Cruise" with Dwayne Johnson (47). This must now move to July 30, 2021. Harrison Ford (77) will appear in the fifth "Indiana Jones" part taking place on July 29, 2022 in the summer of 2021.

This theatrical release does not take place at all

Wes Anderson's (50) film "The French Dispatch" was also moved from July 24 to October 16. The book adaptation "Artemis Fowl" will not even see the theatrical release in May, but will go straight to the streaming portal Disney + (no specific date yet). Pixar's "Soul" (June 19), "West Side Story" (December 18) and "The Last Duel" (December 25) keep their start dates. "The New Mutants", "Woman in the Window", "Antlers" and "The Personal History of David Copperfield" have no launch date yet.
