Disney Doubles Down on Live-Action Fairy Tale Movies with New Release Date Calendar

     April 25, 2016

Disney has taken the success of The Jungle BookMaleficent, and Alice in Wonderland to heart if their new release date schedule is any indication. Though none of the following dates have hard titles attached to them, this will certainly change before long. Basically, Disney is marking its territory well before it has any final decisions about which movies will occupy which slots, daring any other studio’s film to try and compete with it.

Here’s a look at the new release dates revealed by Disney today:

  • UNTITLED DISNEY FAIRY TALE (Live Action) previously dated on 12/22/17 moves up to 7/28/17
  • UNTITLED DISNEY FAIRY TALE (Live Action) now dated on 4/6/18
  • UNTITLED DISNEY LIVE ACTION now dated on 8/3/18
  • UNTITLED DISNEY LIVE ACTION now dated on 12/25/18
  • UNTITLED DISNEY FAIRY TALE (Live Action) now dated on 12/20/19

This comes in addition to the already-scheduled Alice Through the Looking Glass on May 27th, Pete’s Dragon on August 12th, and Beauty and the Beast on March 17, 2017. Here’s more on the films that are currently in development that will eventually be matched up with the release dates above:
