Disney Announces New "Star Wars" Trilogy, Pushes Back "Avatar" Sequels

New Star Wars Release Dates Unveiled by Disney

It appears as if Disney and Lucasfilm want to keep that Christmas-time release date for its franchise of films. The studio announced today their updated release calendar, which goes all the way through 2027. Fox 2000's The Art of Racing in the Rain moves up to August 9, and Fox Searchlight's Ready or Not will release on August 23, while three films move to later dates: Ad Astra (9/20/19), The New Mutants (4/3/20), and Artemis Fowl (5/29/20). And don't forget, Disney+ shows like The Mandalorian and the Cassian Andor prequel series should be able to fill the gap for fans who are still hungry for more Star Wars content between films.

Disney did not give titles or plot details for the new "Star Wars" and "Avatar" films.

The future of the franchise had been up in the air since the studio chose to pump the breaks after five straight years of new movies, which included "Solo", a critical and box office disappointment that sparked talk of Star Wars fatigue. December 22, 2023 will see Avatar 3, with Avatar 4 on December 19, 2025, and Avatar 5 on December 17, 2027.

The line-up includes Robert Downey Jr.as Iron Man, Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Bradley Cooper's Rocket Raccoon, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, and many more!

James Cameron's long-awaited and oft-delayed follow-up to "Avatar" has been pushed back another year.

We don't need a new star was movie every year. That means we'll got three years before a new one. I'm not okay with one under every 10 months. It'll be fun to see Harrison Ford sally forth as Indy one more time. We'll be sure to keep you posted as further developments come to light regarding Disney's future plans for the franchise. Following the backlash to The Last Jedi and poor box office takings of Solo, Disney boss Bob Iger said that Star Wars movies would be taking a pause.
