Jackass: September 3, 2021. Formerly July 2021.

Mulan: TBD. Formerly, Disney had this live-action remake slated for March 27, 2020. Then it was pushed to July 24, 2020, then August 21, 2020. Now, its release is “unset.”

Spider-Man 3: December 17, 2021. The sequel to Spider-Man Far From Home was slated for November 5, 2021, but that was with the expectation it would shoot this summer.

Star Wars sequels: More unnamed Disney tentpoles shifting:
Star Wars Untitled Project 1: December 22, 2023
Star Wars Untitled Project 2: December 19, 2025
Star Wars Untitled Project 2: December 17, 2027

Tenet: TBD 2020. Formerly, July 17, 2020, then July 31, then August 12.

The French Dispatch: TBD. Another a Disney offering, Wes Anderson’s latest was anticipated to play the Cannes Film Festival in May before an opening on July 24, 2020. Maybe next summer.

The Last Duel: October 15, 2021. Formerly Christmas 2020.

The Personal History of David Copperfield: August 18, 2020. Formerly May 8, 2020, then August 14, 2020.

The Tiger’s Apprentice: February 10, 2023. Formerly, February 11, 2022.

Top Gun: Maverick: July 2, 2021. Formerly, December 23, 2020.

New Mutants: Despite Disney moving a bunch of other titles farther down the line, this long-shuffled superhero movie is hanging strong (for now) on August 28, 2020, theaters only.

Originally, New Mutants was slated for April 2018. It has been bumped so many times, we’ve frankly lost track. Many suspected the [email protected] panel with the cast would reveal a new date or plans for the repeatedly pushed film to go straight to Disney+ (following in the footsteps of Artemis Fowl and Hamilton). Nope. Instead, they offered another new poster.
