‘Avatar: The Way Of Water’

Disney has made major changes to its release calendar due largely to the Hollywood writers strike, which has paused work on upcoming projects, and precaution over a possible SAG-AFTRA strike.

20th Century Fox/Lightstorm’s Avatar 3 has been moved back by one year from December 20 2024 to December 19 2025, and Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 have been moved from December 18 2026 to December 1 2029, and from December 22 2028 to December 19 2031, respectively.

Two new Star Wars films are headed for 2026: Untitled Star Wars originally scheduled for December 19 2025 moves to May 22 2026 (removing Untitled Disney from the schedule), while Untitled Star Wars is now dated December 18 2026. The last Star Wars film to open in cinemas was Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise Of Skywalker in December 2019.

Marvel Studios’ entire slate is affected. Blade starring Mahershala Ali and Mia Goth, which had been in pre-production ramping up for a shoot before it was put on hold due to the Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike, moves from September 6 2024 to February 14 2025.

Thunderbolts starring Harrison Ford and Florence Pugh was also put on hold due to the industrial action and moves from a July 26 2024 slot to December 20 2024.

Captain America: Brave New World is pushed from May 3 2024 to Thunderbolts‘ old slot of July 26 2024. 01 Avengers: Secret Wars, which had occupied Kang‘s new slot, will open on May 7 2027.Untitled Deadpool Movie moves up five months from November 8 2024 to May 3 2024.20th Century Studios’ The Amateur
