The Next Three Star Wars Films Get Release Dates

Star Wars Episode IX hasn't even come out yet, but Disney has already announced plans for the future of the iconic movie franchise.

My other guess would be that a team-up movie won't happen until 2023, five years from now.

Almost one year ago, fans were devasted when Avengers: Infinity War concluded with Thanos carrying out his mission to eradicate half of the population in the universe, including several MCU heroes.

What all of these films have in common is that they were well on their way to being made at the time that Disney acquired Fox. These films have not yet been titled, but will most definitely exist outside of the nine numbered Skywalker Saga films. In 2022, Disney does have an untitled Star Wars film slated for release on December 16, 2022. The yet-untitled "Avatar 2" will hit theaters the weekend before Christmas 2021, and the three follow-ups will be released every other year at that same time. Disney's "Avengers: Endgame" is now approaching the film's $2.8 billion box-office record with $2.2 billion in worldwide ticket sales after less than two weeks of release. It was first due for release in 2018, but Fox chose to reshoot the film to give it more of a horror vibe.

The big question hanging over the series is whether writer-director James Cameron can rekindle excitement surrounding Avatar's Pandora world and its Na'vi people over the next two to eight years. Cameron tweeted his films' new dates Tuesday, noting that he was "busy on set".

Aside from the Avatar sequels being delayed, the troubled New Mutants movies has been pushed back again to April 3, 2020.

Pixar isn't going anywhere, either, with four untitled projects scheduled between 2020-2022 (and none slated for release dates after that).

And while we're on the subject of Lucasarts: that Indiana Jones live-action sequel announced in 2016, with Harrison Ford attached, is still floating around in Disney's release schedule, only now marked with a release date of July 9, 2021.
