I hope you’re ready for a little release date roundup on this fine Friday because we’ve got a lot for you. Disney has set up release dates for four new Marvel movies in 2024: February 16, 2024, May 3, 2024, July 26, 2024, and November 8, 2024. Disney’s live-action Little Mermaid is now set to be released on May 26, 2023, and Guillermo del Toro’s Nightmare Alley, which was previously set for a limited release, will now enjoy a wide release on December 17, 2021. It was also announced that The Bob’s Burgers Movie will finally launch on May 27, 2022.
Based on the theatrical success of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Disney has confirmed that Eternals, The Last Duel, West Side Story, Ron’s Gone Wrong, and The King’s Man will all get exclusive 45-day theatrical windows before moving to digital platforms. The Last Duel will hit theaters on October 15, 2021, followed by Ron’s Gone Wrong on October 22, 2021, Eternals on November 5, 2021, West Side Story on December 10, 2021, and The King’s Man on December 22, 2021. Disney also plans on releasing their animated musical Encanto in theaters on November 24, 2021, where it will play for 30 days before landing on Disney+.
“Following the tremendous box office success of our summer films which included five of the top eight domestic releases of the year, we are excited to update our theatrical plans for the remainder of 2021,” said Kareem Daniel, Chairman, Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution. “As confidence in moviegoing continues to improve, we look forward to entertaining audiences in theaters, while maintaining the flexibility to give our Disney Plus subscribers the gift of ‘Encanto’ this holiday season.”
