Disney Announces Changes to Release Calendar: "Moana" Goes Live-Action, "Deadpool 3" Moves Up, and New "Avatar" Movies Revealed

Disney has announced some changes to its release calendar, adding some films and rescheduling some others. 

A live-action "Moana" will be released on June 27, 2025; "Deadpool 3" moved up from Nov. 8, 2024, to May 3, 2024; an untitled "Star Wars" movie is debuting on Dec. 18, 2026; "Avatar 3" has shifted to Dec. 19, 2025; "Avatar 4" to Dec. 21, 2029, and "Avatar 5" to Dec. 19, 2031. Based on this timeline, the final "Avatar" movie is coming 22 years after the original 2009 blockbuster. More changes include some rescheduling of Marvel properties.  "Captain America: Brave New World" is moving from May 3, 2024, to July 26, 2024, which in turn is delaying "Thunderbolts" to Dec. 20, 2024, "Blade" to Feb. 14, 2025, and "Fantastic Four" to May 2, 2025. "Avengers: The Kang Dynasty" is getting pushed back an entire year, from May 2, 2025, to May 1, 2026. It's taking the place of "Avengers: Secret Wars," which is jumping from May 1, 2026, to May 7, 2027.

Producer Jon Landau wrote on Twitter about the "avatar" films, saying, "Each ‘Avatar' film is an exciting but epic undertaking that takes time to bring to the quality level we as filmmakers strive for and audiences have come to expect. The team is hard at work and can't wait to bring audiences back to Pandora in December 2025." 

A "Star Wars" film was moved from Dec. 19, 2025, to May 22, 2026, with other films from the franchise being released in December 2026 and December 2027. 

Also on the list is the new "Alien" film, which will be released on Aug. 16, 2024.
