The Walt Disney Studios has updated the release schedule for a number of movies coming out over the next couple of years, and in the process announced firm (or firm as of now) dates for two Marvel movies.

SAVING MR. BANKS (Disney)

  • Now opens 12/13/13 limited. The previously announced 12/20/13 wide playdate is unchanged.
  • Inspired by true events, SAVING MR. BANKS is the extraordinary, untold story of how Disney’s classic MARY POPPINS made it to the screen—and the testy relationship that the legendary Walt Disney had with author P.L. Travers that almost derailed it.

MUPPETS MOST WANTED (Disney)

  • MUPPETS MOST WANTED is the final title of the follow-up to 2011’s THE MUPPETS. The previously announced 3/21/14 wide playdate is unchanged.
  • Starring Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell and Tina Fey, Disney’s MUPPETS MOST WANTED takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour where they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper.
  • Complete project profile below.

PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE (Disney)

  • Now dated on 7/18/14 wide in 3D.

ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY (Disney)

  • Now dated on 10/10/14 wide.
  • Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner have been cast.
  • 21 Laps and The Jim Henson Company are producing.
  • Miguel Arteta is directing.
  • ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY, based on the award-winning children’s book by Judith Viorst, follows young Alexander through the mishaps of a terrible day for his family after he wishes they all would experience the same troubles he does.

TOMORROWLAND (Disney)

  • Moves to 12/12/14 wide (from 12/19/14 wide).
  • The film is being directed by Brad Bird and written and produced by Bird and Damon Lindelof.
  • George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy and Thomas Robinson have been cast.

INTO THE WOODS (Disney)

  • Now dated on Thursday, 12/25/14 wide.
  • Rob Marshall is directing.
  • NTO THE WOODS, based on the Tony-winning original musical by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim, surrounds a baker and his wife’s quest to break a witch’s curse in order to start a family. Along the way, they encounter several well-known fairy tale characters, and together they learn what happens after “happily ever after”.

THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY (DreamWorks)

  • Now dated on 8/8/14 wide.
  • Lasse Hallstrom is directing.
  • Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Juliet Blake producing.
  • THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY, based on the international best-selling book by Richard C. Morais, tells the story of an Indian boy living in France who becomes the culinary apprentice to his father’s rival.

UNTITLED MARVEL FILMS

  • We’ve also announced dates for two UNTITLED MARVEL films (5/6/16 and 5/5/17), in line with Marvel’s successful tradition of opening films in early May, including the billion-dollar hits MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS and Marvel’s IRON MAN 3. We look forward to announcing more details about these films as well as the sequel to THE AVENGERS (opening 5/1/15) at a later date.

I’m really interested in Into the Woods and Tomorrowland, but the announcement about the two Marvel movies has me wondering what they could be (Ant Man and others have release dates).

    I remember a while back you reported that someone was hinting that they might do a Doctor Strange movie. That would be cool as I have always loved him.
