Disney has overhauled their busy release schedule for the next several years, finally revealing dates for three new Star Wars films as well as pushing back James Cameron’s Avatar sequels.
New Star Wars Films
Up until today, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was the last Star Wars film announced to be released. Three more release dates for Star Wars films were announced today. December 16, 2022; Dec 12, 2024; and Dec 18, 2026.
This is likely one of the new trilogies by either Ryan Johnson, director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi; or David Benioff and D.B. Weiss of Game of Thrones fame. No titles or synopsizes were provided by the Mouse House.
James Cameron’s Avatar sequels have also been pushed back. Avatar 2 will release a year later from 2020 to 2021, Avatar 3 was pushed back from 2021 to 2023, and Avatar 4 was pushed from 2024 to 2025.
What About Marvel?
The next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe remains in question. There will certainly be plenty more superhero and team-up films on the horizon, but Disney is keeping mum on the details. For now.
