It looks like Disney has removed two movies from its slate.
According to a report by Deadline, Disney has just removed two different untitled live-action movies that it had previously listed down in a slate that had been revealed back in May. These live-action movies were previously set for October 7, 2022, and February 17, 2023 release. However, it seems like the Mickey Mouse House has taken these films off its slate which already has more than forty movies set for release through December 2023.
While this might cause some concern for Marvel fans, the publication notes that the two removed projects are not from Marvel or any of Fox’s live-action properties. Marvel fans should celebrate. Both of Oct. 7, 2022, and Feb. 17, 2023, release dates have been repurposed by Disney as release dates for untitled Marvel Cinematic Universe projects, meaning that Marvel is going to get three to four films in both 2022 and 2023.
Perhaps the movies were for Star Wars. Perhaps they were for a couple of Disney’s live-action adaptations of its classic animated movies.
In other news, Disney is now beginning work on its upcoming live-action adaptation of the classic animated feature, The Little Mermaid. Starring Halle Bailey and Melissa McCarthy, The Little Mermaid is set to be directed by Rob Marshall.
Disney is also busy working on the upcoming series it has prepared for Disney+. This includes its slew of Star Wars projects like the Rogue One spinoff centered on Diego Luna’s Captain Cassian Andor and the Obi-Wan Kenobi series which promises the return of Ewan McGregor. Marvel has several shows prepared for the site – there’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, WandaVision, Hawkeye, What If...?, She-Hulk, Moon Knight, and Ms. Marvel.
Disney+ is currently available online for streaming.
