Disney intends to continue releasing new films in theaters throughout 2021.
According to multiple reports, Disney’s “Eternals,” “The Last Duel,” “West Side Story,” “Ron’s Gone Wrong,” and “The King’s Man” will only be available in theaters for 45 days before arriving on Disney+.
Disney has released its new movies since 2021.
“Following the tremendous box office success of our summer films which included five of the top eight domestic releases of the year, we are excited to update our theatrical plans for the remainder of 2021,” DeadlineKareem Dan, chairman of Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution, was quoted.
Fans will not have to wait 45 days to watch Disney’s new animated feature “Encanto,” which will be released around Thanksgiving.
It will be available on Disney+ 30 days after its theatrical release—just in time for the Christmas season.
Disney also announced Friday that the live-action remake of “The Little Mermaid” will open Memorial Day Weekend in 2023.
