Tons of new and exciting upcoming content was revealed during Disney’s recent D23 convention, and now we see the company’s theatrical release schedule reflecting some of those big announcements. Some dates have been pushed, some new dates have been shared, and one significant title is now absent.
Unfortunately, the live-action feature Haunted Mansion has been pushed from 10 March to 11 August 2023. Inspired by the classic theme park attraction, the spooky flick follows a woman and her son who enlist a motley crew of so-called spiritual experts to help rid their home of supernatural squatters. The film is directed by Justin Simien and stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Rosario Dawson, LaKeith Stanfield, Danny DeVito, Jared Leto, and Tiffany Haddish.
While most of the noted changes pertained to release dates, the upcoming Star Wars film Rogue Squadron seems to have been wiped from the calendar altogether. The Patty Jenkins-led film, billed as the “greatest fighter pilot movie ever made,” was originally slated for a 22 December 2023 release, but has been put on hold for unspecified reasons.
Some release dates have been officially set, including Pixar’s Elio, which arrives on 1 March 2024; Disney’s Snow White hits 22 March 2024; Pixar’s Inside Out 2 opens 14 June 2024; and Mufasa: The Lion King arrives 5 July 2024.
