Disney delays ‘Mulan’ indefinitely; pushes back ‘Avatar’ sequels and ‘Star Wars’ installments

Walt Disney has postponed the debut of its movie Mulan indefinitely, with no word of when or where it might be seen on screens. The live-action reimagining of animated classic Mulan directed by Niki Caro was planned August 2021.

The studio has also pushed back its planned Avatar sequels and Star Wars installments. The Avatar sequel is now set to debut in theaters in December 2022, and the next Star Wars movie in December 2023.

Disney’s decision to delay Mulan comes on the heels of Warner Bros. delaying Tenet indefinitely. The studios have played a game of release date with one another, delaying their respective films a couple of weeks at a time. While Warner Bros. chairman Toby Emmerich announced that the company will “will share a new 2020 release date imminently for Tenet,” there’s no concrete date attached to the film.

What will happen to Disney’s biggest movies of the year, Black Widow. The Scarlett Johansson Marvel movie was supposed to be released in May, but was pushed back to November. If things don’t change much between then and now, this could be the first year without a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie since 2009.
