Disney made a few changes to its upcoming calendar on Tuesday. The studio pushed back the release of Star Wars: Episode IX by seven months following the announcement that J.J. Abrams is taking over directing duties. Star Wars: Episode IX will now open in theaters on December 20, 2019, instead of May 24, 2019. The tentpole is swapping places with another high-profile title – the live-action adaptation of Aladdin, which previously occupied the December 20 release date.
That said, Magic Camp, directed by Mark Waters from a story by Steve Martin, will hit the screens on April 6, 2018.
That is not all! Several other Disney live-action titles now have release dates. The untitled Christopher Robin movie will open in theaters on August 3, 2018, while Artemis Fowl will launch on August 9, 2019. These will be followed by Nicole, starring Anna Kendrick as a female Santa Claus. The movie will unspool in theaters on November 8, 2019.
