'Mulan' and Wes Anderson's 'The French Dispatch' Have Been Postponed Indefinitely
The 'Avatar' sequels and three new 'Star Wars' films have also been delayed by Disney
Published Jul 23, 2020After Christoper Nolan's hugely anticipated Tenet was postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19, the same has now happened to Niki Caro's Mulan and Wes Anderson's The French Dispatch.
Today Disney announced its revamped release calendar, with both Mulan and The French Dispatch now listed as simply "unset." In case that's unclear, it means we basically now have no idea when the films are coming out and neither does Disney.
If you are ready for some more bad news, Disney has also pushed back the release of the Avatar sequels (the first will now arrive in December 2022), in addition to a trio of new Star Wars films (now coming in 2023, 2025 and 2027, respectively).
As perhaps a silver lining to all this, there is no mention of any changes to some upcoming Marvel films, including Black Widow and The Eternals.
