Disney announced a series of release date changes. The biggest news is that all upcoming “Star Wars” and “Avatar” movies have been postponed by one year. Now, they will no longer issue seven of them alternately between 2021 and 2027, but between 2022 and 2028. Three “Star Wars” movies (reportedly the first “Taka White”) will be released on December 22, 2023, December 19, 2025 and December 17, 2025. In 2027. Avatar occupies the other four positions. Avatar 2 is on December 16, 2022, Avatar 3 is on December 20, 2024, and Avatar 4 is on December 2026. On the 18th, Avatar 5 will be held on December 22, 2028.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, producer and director James Cameron must postpone “Avatar 2” Said In a letter posted on Avatar’s social media feed: “Due to COVID-19, we were forced to delay the start of the live-action filming we are currently in New Zealand for a long time. Most of you may not know it. The thing is that the pandemic is still preventing us from restarting most of the virtual production work on the stage in Los Angeles. Before COVID-19, everything is expected to bring you the first sequel in December 2021. Unfortunately, Since the pandemic has affected our schedule, we can no longer determine this date.”

“Avatar 2” is not the only Disney movie affected by the pandemic.Reimagining of real people Hua Mulan -It was repeatedly postponed and was originally scheduled to be released on August 21.-It has now been completely cancelled from the release calendar. A few days later, Warner Bros. provided Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” ( Previously scheduled for August 12) did the same thing. However, it’s strange that Disney did not revise the X-Men’s horror film “The New Mutant” from August 28, which was also developed by Searchlight Pictures owned by Disney and led by Dev Patel. The new release date of “My Personal History”. It is not clear whether these films will be released in limited quantities in countries where theaters are open, or whether they will be postponed again.
