Some major modifications to Disney’s release calendar have just been announced in an effort to combat the effects of COVID-19 on the film industry, as many movie theaters still remain closed at this time.

In addition to indefinitely delaying Mulan and pushing back the Avatar sequels by one year, it has been revealed that the release dates for three upcoming Star Wars films have also been moved up by a year.

Originally slated to hit theaters every other year starting in 2022, the three films are now scheduled to premiere on the following dates instead:

  • December 22, 2023
  • December 19, 2025
  • December 17, 2027

This almost-Christmas release schedule remains consistent with the typical December schedule for new Star Wars films since the Disney acquisition that began with Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

Not much information is known on these upcoming Star Wars films, outside of the fact that they are supposedly not directly connected to the Skywalker Saga.

Stay tuned for more information!
