Have been keeping track of all the new Disney movies currently in the works?
We saw the live-action remake of Mulan move to Disney+ and heard that the release date for the new Pixar film, Soul, was delayed. These two films have been all over the media, but what about the other movies Disney announced? Are they still pushing forward with production? We’re here to remind you of 5 major Disney movies works that you may have forgotten about!
Remember when Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wrestled with WWF then later became a Disney star? We’re totally not mad about the transition! We’ve been anticipating the debut of the Jungle Cruise film based on the popular Disney theme park attraction. Johnson will play our friendly Skipper and yes, there will be plenty of punny jokes.
The movie has seen two delays. It was originally set to release October 11, 2019. It was then pushed back to July 24, 2020. After this, it was delayed a year to accommodate the delayed release of Mulan. The current release date for Jungle Cruise is now July 30th, 2021.
Lots of new Jungle Cruise merchandise has been released since the parks reopened, which likely due to the fact that the film was supposed to be out at this point!
We will keep you posted as more Jungle Cruise goodies are released in the parks.
Pirates of the Caribbean 6 (and Maybe 7)
Are you ready for yet another Pirates of the Caribbean movie? How about TWO new Pirates of the Caribbean movies?? It was reported that Margot Robbie and Christina Hodson (Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey) are working on a film that is a spinoff of the Pirates of the Caribbean series.
The film will center on other characters within the Pirate’s world, pulling focus away from Captain Jack Sparrow, Elizabeth Swann, and Will Turner. The second script in the works is a reboot by Ted Elliott and Chernobyl creator, Craig Mazin.
There have been no reports on a release date or whether any of the original actors will be involved!
Ah yes, another live-action remake of 101 Dalmations! This film will focus on the origin story of Cruella de Vil, one of the most vicious Disney villains of our time. Cruella will be played by Emma Stone and the story will show her transformation into a puppy fur-loving maniac. Cruella will release on May 28th, 2021.
No, not the one starring Eddie Murphy. There will soon be another adaptation of the popular Disney theme park attraction, The Haunted Mansion. Kate Dippold, who wrote the Ghostbusters reboot and The Heat, will write the new live-action movie.
No details or release dates have been noted for the new film quite yet!
Hercules is getting a live-action remake too! The film is produced by Anthony and Joseph Russo, who directed major Marvel hits like the Avengers and Captain America series. The film is set to be written by Shang-Chi writer Dave Callaham.
It hasn’t been confirmed whether the Russo Brothers will direct and no further details have been released about the film.
There are a ton of Disney films coming to theatres within the next few years! Most major films, like the new Avatar and Star Wars series, are facing prolonged delays. We’ll continue to remind you of all the new Disney films you have to look forward to in the future!
