When Disney has already made plans for a Star Wars movie every year, do release dates even matter anymore? It might if the movie is set to arrive in the summer instead of December.

For the last two Star Wars movies, we’ve had to head to the theaters in December, but with Star Wars: Episode IX, directed by Colin Trevorrow, Disney has announced a May 24, 2019 release date.  This announcement coincided with a new Disney release schedule for the next couple of years.

  • UNTITLED DISNEY FAIRY TALE (Live Action) previously dated on 7/28/17 moves to 8/3/18
  • RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET: WRECK-IT RALPH 2 (3D) is final title of previous WRECK-IT RALPH SEQUEL – previously dated on 3/9/18 moves to 11/21/18
