Disney has announced an updated release schedule for its upcoming theatrical film slate for 2021 through to 2028.  With the pandemic still causing huge problems at cinemas worldwide, it has shifted more titles back.

It will release both “Cruella” and “Black Widow” on Disney+ Premier Access simultaneously as they are released in cinemas.  Other titles could also be made available on Disney+ Premier Access.  However, Disney is still keeping its options open and dealing with each film release on a case by case basis, as it wants to go back to its profitable theatrical releases.

Obviously, this release schedule will undoubtedly change at some point and should consumers decide they like watching new movies at home via Disney+ Premier Access. This could potentially become permanent.  Or alternatively, Disney+ Premier Access will just be something Disney uses during the pandemic.


It also gives us a look at potential movies heading to Disney+ over the next decade after they’ve completed their theatrical runs.

Here is the current Walt Disney Studios schedule:

    Is it safe to say that the untitled Marvel film in 2022 is Ant Man 3?

    1. Nathan Gamerdog April 4, 2021

      Ant-Man 3 is coming out 2023 and the 2022 date might be blade because on https://lumiere-a.akamaihd.net/v1/documents/twdc_investor_day_programming_fact_sheet_ecbccd9a.pdf it says the films are listed in cronological order and its placed between Black Panther II and Captain Marvel 2
