Story details and titles of the Star Wars and Avatar movies were not released.

The much speculated movie Avatar 2 has got a new release date and has been pushed back to the year 2021.

Avatar 3 was originally scheduled to hit theaters on December 17, 2021 but has now been shifted to December 22, 2023.

Finally, Avatar 5 opens December 17, 2027. Avengers: Endgame is now the second-highest grossing movie in history, displacing Titanic and just behind Avatar.

The change comes after Disney executives feared Solo: A Star Wars Story underperformed because it came out just a few months after The Last Jedi, overloading fans who may have grown tired of the Force-feeding. "There will be other Star Wars movies, but again I think we're going to end up in a period where there will be a bit of hiatus".

We have the release dates for three more "Star Wars" movies. "Avatar 2" will hit theaters on December 17, 2021 instead of December 18, 2020 as originally planned. The galaxy far, far away is also expanding with new TV series "The Mandalorian" and a Diego Luna series on the upcoming Disney+ streaming service. Meaning, "untitled Star Wars" will land in theaters on December 16, 2022, December 20, 2024, and December 18, 2026.

Disney's recent pledge that Star Wars would take a theatrical break after this year's Rise of Skywalker has been confirmed by this schedule, and it's a remarkable one: three years.

Once upon a time, The New Mutants was the most hotly-anticipated horror movies of 2017.

The move cuts what could have been Disney's biggest film of 2020 from its schedule, meaning it will have to rely more other movies, such as Cruella and a West Side Story reboot directed by Steven Spielberg.

The company also announced that there will be two Marvel films next year on May 1 and November 6. Previously scheduled to bow in theaters this August, it will instead arrive in April of 2020. That leaves three unknown spots for whatever film catches Marvel's fancy.
