Disney has shifted the release dates for all of its upcoming Star Wars and Avatar sequels, delaying them all by a year.
Disney has seven different Avatar and Star Wars projects in the works that were originally set to take over the holiday season slots starting in 2021. Now the company has opted to push back the release of all of these films. Avatar 2 was to be released on December 17th of 2021 but has now been pushed back to December 16th of 2022. Avatar 3 was to be released on December 20th of 2023 but has now been bumped back to December 22nd of 2024. Avatar 4 will now be released on December 18th of 2026 instead of December 19th of 2025. Avatar 5 was originally set to be released on December 17th of 2027 but will now be released on December 22nd of 2028.
In addition, Disney has also bumped back the released dates of all three of the upcoming Star Wars films. The first of these Star Wars films was set to be released on December 16th of 2022 but has now been pushed back to December 22nd of 2023. The second film was to be released on December 20th of 2024 but will now be released on December 19th of 2025. The last of these three Star Wars films was set to premiere on December 18th of 2026 but now has a December 17th release date in 2027. None of these projects, however, currently have a creative team attached to them.
