Movies from "Star Wars" saga and the continuation of "Avatar" viewers will be able to see only a year from the scheduled date.
The global pandemic has significantly affected all processes in the film industry. Cinema production stoppages and mass cinema closures have led to the previously planned loud premieres of leading studios being questioned. Company Disney reported that the already scheduled for August 21 premiere of the animated film "Mulan" would not take place.
The exact date of the premiere is no longer being called, and to the disappointment of fans of the studio, it has been postponed indefinitely. This is the fourth time since early March when there is a postponement of the premiere date. Thus, the remake of "Mulan" repeats the fate of the movie Tenet by Christopher Nolan, whose premiere was initially scheduled for August but has now been postponed indefinitely. This means that the month of summer will not please any Hollywood blockbusters.
How to respond to the lack of significant hits the film distribution industry is not yet transparent, previously one of the world's largest cinema networks AMC, that because of the delayed premiere of Tenet may shift the opening date of its facilities, previously scheduled for mid-August. With information on Disney's refusal to release Mulan, the likelihood that cinema chains will prefer to remain closed significantly increases.
The release dates of most other major premieres have also been shifted. So far, the unnamed "Star Wars" films are scheduled to be shown a year later than the previously mentioned dates, in December 2023, 2025, and 2027. The premieres of the sequel, "Avatar," have also been shifted by a year and will be shown in 2022, 2024, 2026, and 2028.
