It appears that Disney’s The New Mutants will be heading straight to VOD as the film is currently available for digital pre-order on Amazon.
The New Mutants has been in limbo ever since its March 2o20 release came and went due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has caused all facets of the global economy to shutter. Prior to that, The New Mutants was delayed numerous times to avoid clashing with other films and for rumoured reshoots. Fans were genuinely hopeful that The New Mutants would finally receive a release date but Disney has been quiet regarding the X-Men film, so much so that they’ve removed the film from its theatrical slate.
Fans have been clamouring for a digital release of The New Mutants for quite some time and it appears that Disney has loudly heard their pleas. Earlier today, it was discovered that the Josh Boone directed film was available for digital pre-order on Amazon. The film, which costs $25.99 USD, is only listed for purchase and cannot be rented at the moment. There isn’t a release date listed on the digital platform but fans who do pre-order it are assured that they’ll be watch it as soon as it’s available.
It’s quite surprising that Disney hasn’t decided to release The New Mutants on Disney Plus like they recently did with Artemis Fowl. The film has already received cult-like status from fans and critics and it’s certain that they wouldn’t mind dropping a hefty penny to see what is the last Fox-backed X-Men film. Of course, things could always change and this could be clerical error, but The New Mutants listing has been on Amazon for hours at this point.
