In light of recent delays due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, release dates for many of Disney’s upcoming films have had to be postponed. With theaters worldwide still shuttered due to the health crisis, new dates have been revealed for the upcoming movie releases.
Of course, the shifting of the entire release schedule has had a bit of a domino effect in terms of the lineup, so we’re seeing movies like Mulan take the date originally slated for Jungle Cruise, and likewise for Black Widow, taking over The Eternals release date. Of course, all of these dates are still tentative given the ongoing pandemic, and they may well change again if theaters don’t open by the end of summer.
JUST IN: Here are the new dates for Disney's films that were delayed because of coronavirus:
Mulan to 7/24/20
Jungle Cruise to 7/30/21
Black Widow to 11/6/20
