Rumors were spreading The New Mutants could land on a streaming service, but Disney confirmed the film will hit theaters in 2019.
The New Mutants has been in limbo for a while, with multiple release date changes prior to the Disney-Fox merger. The film was planned to have reshoots last year to heighten the horror element, but they have yet to take place. With Disney in control now, rumors pointed to the studio dropping it on Hulu or Disney+. However, HN Entertainment’s Christopher Marc shared on Twitter that Disney is still planning on a theatrical release.

Held in a secret facility against their will, five new mutants have to battle the dangers of their powers, as well as the sins of their past. They aren’t out to save the world — they’re just trying to save themselves.
The New Mutants is scheduled to hit theaters August 2.
