Disney Delays Avatar Sequels & The New Mutants Movies

The company announced on Tuesday its producing three more untitled Star Wars films that'll begin to debut in theaters in 2022.

C3PO, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac appear in a scene from the 2019 film, "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker". Because by 2022, Star Wars movies will be playing again at a theater near you.

It appears as if Disney and Lucasfilm want to keep that Christmas-time release date for its franchise of films.

But for 2020, we a have a few new films on the docket.


So the new films could potentially be spin-off films in the vein of Solo and Rogue One.

The schedule also indicates they have Star Wars films planned to be released through 2026.

Get excited "Star Wars" fans, cos you're about to get three new movies set in that galaxy far, far away.

In addition to those two films, Disney also announced that it would release two more previously-announced fully-animated features: a feature adaptation of the Fox tv series Bob's Burgers and Ron's Gone Wrong from the U.K.'s Locksmith Animation. Well guess what, Disney answered that question for us today.


Pixar isn't going anywhere, either, with four untitled projects scheduled between 2020-2022 (and none slated for release dates after that). The first of those to arrive will be "Avatar 2", which has been delayed a year and is now set to arrive on December 17, 2021. David Benioff and D.B. Weiss - the Game of Thrones showrunners - have a trilogy that may be a bit further along than the one Rian Johnson is working on.

Live-action filming on the sequels then started in New Zealand this spring.

Avengers: Endgame is now the second-highest grossing movie in history, displacing Titanic and just behind Avatar.

Earlier this year the films' director James Cameron publicly confirmed to Entertainment Tonight: "Those titles are among titles that are in consideration". Savi was one of the original Gatherers and a friend to Lor San Tekka (whom we met briefly at the beginning of Star Wars: The Force Awakens).
