Disney's Buyout Of Is Fox Closing And Here's The Studio's 2019 Release Schedule
Disney will own all the box offices in 2019.
If you've been keeping up with all the Disney/Fox news, you've probably noticed a lot of movie release dates being pushed around, and there's a good reason for that, as Disney's acquisition of 21st Century Fox continues to slowly push forward. Both Disney and Fox are putting some separation between their releases as 2019 is stacked.
The most notable of these changes came from the next movie in the X-Men franchise, which was originally going to release on February 14. Two days after the first trailer came out, the movie was pushed back to June 7. This happened because another Fox movie, Alita: Battle Angel was pushed from December 21, 2018, a week after another CG fantasy/adventure, Mortal Engines, was set to release. Additionally, Jungle Cruise was pushed, today, to July, 2020.
Everything between 21st Century Fox and Disney is expected to finalize soon, and according to THR, Dark Phoenix could be first film under the Disney banner. Additionally, Disney's plan is to release everything Fox already has in production or wrapping up.
After months of shifting dates, here's what the post-Fox-buyout release schedule looks like for Disney. There are a few other dates, which aren't included on the list, where Disney has a date saved as an "Untitled Project." There are plenty of those titles for 2020, which we all know will be numerous Marvel Studios films and at least on Star Wars movie.
