Disney Pushes “Star Wars Episode IX” Back, Makes Other Changes to Release Schedule


Just hours after announcing J.J. Abrams would take over the directorial reigns of Lucasfilm’s Star Wars Episode IX, Walt Disney Pictures has moved the movie’s release date back to Dec. 20, 2019. They’ve decided to replace its initial May 24 release date with Guy Ritchie’s live action adaptation of Aladdin, which just began production.

Other changes made include removing the Mark Waters family comedy Magic Camp off its intended April 6, 2018 debut, while giving release dates to a few other movies in production.

The Christopher Robin movie starring Ewan McGregor will now open on Aug. 3, 2018, while the long-planned Artemis Fowl movie opens a year later on Aug. 9, 2019. Anna Kendrick’s female Santa Claus film Nicole will open on Nov. 8, 2019, just in time for that year’s holiday movie season.
