Disney has announced many film date changes today. First we saw the postponement of Star Wars and Avatar and now we have some changes to the dates for Mulan and New Mutants.
Mulan has been pulled from the August 21st release date and is now “unset” on the Disney calendar as Disney tries to determine when it’s best to release the tentpole film into a global market.
According to the Walt Disney Studios spokesperson “Over the last few months, it’s become clear that nothing can be set in stone when it comes to how we release films during this global health crisis, and today that means pausing our release plans for ‘Mulan’ as we assess how we can most effectively bring this film to audiences around the world.”
This is the fourth time that the film has been delayed. Originally it was supposed to release on March 27, 2020, then the date was set for July 24, 2020 and then finally it was August 21, 2020. Now we have no date as it’s been delayed indefinitely.
As Mulan has been moved to an indefinite status, New Mutants has been given an August 28, 2020 release date. This will finally complete the X-Men series from Fox.
Hopefully they won’t have to push it back again, due to pandemic issues. If it does continue they might have to consider taking their films to and online box office.
