The Disney Fox merger was one of the biggest events in history and the fans of the separate bases have really high hopes from it.
Now that Disney has successfully finalized the purchase of the 20th Century Fox, the studio has released its feature film slate for the next decade to reflect all those new acquisitions, which includes all of the 'Star Wars' and 'Avatar' movies the fans are going to see in the near future. Apart from the ones releasing in 2020, one of the movies will land in theaters during the December holiday stretch every year until 2027.
Now, Disney has announced a huge batch of new release dates for movies up through 2027. The full and final release calendar has planned till now but the next few years are pretty well set in stone and it's clear, with the purchase of Fox officially done, that few other studios stand a chance against Disney's plan to deliver one blockbuster movie after the other.
These dates include three 'Star Wars' movies, all the four 'Avatar' sequels from James Cameron, 'The New Mutants' and a lot of other movies too. After the record-breaking performance of 'Avengers: Endgame', the summer slate of Walt Disney's 2019 schedule consists of 'Aladdin' that will be releasing on May 24, 'Dark Phoenix' on June 7, Pixar's 'Toy Story 4' on June 21, and 'Lion King' on July 19. The date for 'The Art of Racing in the Rain' is now set for August 9. Along with this , Brad Pitt's 'Ad Astra' has also been moved to September 20.
According to the reports, the 'Avatar' movies that are planned will have alternate release years along with 'Star Wars', which has promised a trilogy from Rian Johnson that is on its way, along with it is a separate series of movies which are being written by 'Game of Thrones' showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Along the line, a number of Marvel movies are also taking shape. Three movies with new titles will be coming out through 2022. Additionally, there will also be a new 'Indiana Jones' movie and another eight movies that are classified as 'Untitled Disney Live Action', along with a handful of other Pixar movies.
The release of 'New Mutants' has been pushed back yet again to April 2020, putting it two years behind its original scheduled release. The studio has taken 'Gambit' off the slate entirely, thereby canceling it altogether and the movie on 'Bob's Burgers' is on its course for a summer release next year.
