      "Mulan" and Other Disney Properties Delayed Indefinitely

      Disney has pulled “Mulan” from the studio’s release calendar as cases of coronavirus continue to rise across the country and new outbreaks roil major foreign markets.

      “Over the last few months, it’s become clear that nothing can be set in stone when it comes to how we release films during this global health crisis, and today that means pausing our release plans for ‘Mulan’ as we assess how we can most effectively bring this film to audiences around the world,” a Disney spokesperson said.

      This is the fourth big-screen delay for “Mulan.” It was initially scheduled to debut on March 27, but it was pulled just before its planned release as coronavirus first began to spread in North America. Disney moved the film to July 24 and then to Aug. 21.

      The pushback comes the week that cinemas in China, a key territory that the $200 million-budgeted title will depend on to turn a profit, are re-opening at long last after nearly six months of closures. Approximately 20% of Chinese cinemas in areas at low risk for COVID-19 have reopened as of Thursday, local authorities said, amounting to around 2,400 cinemas in total. Beijing theaters are set to pick up again from Friday, now that a coronavirus flare-up in the capital has been brought under control.

      But the situation is a bit more bleak Stateside. Movie theaters in North America have been closed since March due to public health concerns. Studios and exhibitors had hoped business could resume in July, but those plans have started to look increasingly unlikely. AMC Theatres, the country’s biggest theater chain, has already amended its reopening and hopes to be back in business by mid to late August. Los Angeles and New York City — two of the most important moviegoing markets in North America — still don’t have concrete plans for cinemas to reopen.

      Earlier this week, Warner Bros. announced that it was moving Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” from August to an unspecified date in 2020. The shifts are a major blow to the exhibition industry, which had pinned its hopes for a late summer revival on the one-two punch of “Tenet” and “Mulan.”

      Directed by Niki Caro, “Mulan” stars Liu Yifei as a fearless Chinese warrior who disguises herself as a man to spare her elderly father from having to serve in the military. Due to sequences of violence, it’s the first of Disney’s live-action remakes to score a PG-13 rating.

      Galaxies far, far away are moving back even further now. Disney has announced that all of its upcoming Star Wars and Avatar films are being delayed a full year due to upheaval in the release and production schedule from the COVID-19 pandemic, amounting to postponements that will ripple through 2028.

      It's not clear which stories in the Star Wars universe were on the company's internal schedule for the years ahead, but The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson had planned his own trilogy that was still in the works, and Jojo Rabbit Oscar-winner Taika Waititi is writing a separate project with 1917 screenwriter Krysty Wilson-Cairns

      Three untitled Star Wars films are now being pushed back a full year each, and will now come out in December of 2023, 2025, and 2027.

      James Cameron's four upcoming Avatar sequels, which Disney acquired in its purchase of 20th Century Fox, are also being delayed a year apiece, with the first one debuting in December 2022. Another is now slated to debut every two years after in 2024, 2026, and wrapping up in 2028.

      Disney's live-action Mulan, originally set to debut this past spring, was most recently dated for Aug. 21, but now moves into limbo with no set date. “Over the last few months, it’s become clear that nothing can be set in stone when it comes to how we release films during this global health crisis, and today that means pausing our release plans for Mulan as we assess how we can most effectively bring this film to audiences around the world," the studio said in a statement.

      Among the other changes, the Fox Searchlight films The Personal History of David Copperfield will move back two weeks to Aug. 28, 2020, Wes Anderson's The French Dispatch has been pulled from its Oct. 16 date and is now unset, and the horror thriller Antlers will now come out Feb. 19, 2021.

      Fox's Agatha Christie movie Death on the Nile will move back two weeks to Oct. 23, while the horror-crime saga The Empty Man, which was set for August, is now coming out Dec. 4. Ridley Scott's medieval epic The Last Duel, starring Matt Damon, Jodie Comer, Ben Affleck and Adam Driver, has also been delayed from Dec. 25 of this year to Oct. 15, 2021.

      I don't understand why Fox decided to do like 20 movies of Avatar . There's no hype anymore. The second movie was supposed to come out in 2014.

      The first one is trash, and they should have never announced a 2nd let alone a 3rd film as well as a 4th film. She's destined to flop though, so I wont complain too much.
