Disney Movie Release Dates Poppins Moves Up Jungle Cruise Delayed

Indiana Jones delayed to 2021 as Disney shakes up movie schedule

After an endless amount of hemming and hawing, Indiana Jones 5 is officially confirmed by Disney.

News broke a few weeks ago that the as-yet-untitled Indiana Jones 5 had been delayed and would not be ready in time for its scheduled July 2020 release date.

Today, thanks to The Hollywood Reporter, we have a new release date - July 9th, 2021. Steven Spielberg is set to direct the latest film, with Ford also reprising his role.

Script issues are reportedly behind the delay.

The film will reunite Ford with director Stephen Spielberg in the "Indiana Jones" franchise created by filmmaker George Lucas, that has grossed almost $2 billion at the world box office with four films and amassed a global fan base.

He also uploaded pictures from the supposed set, featuring what looks like the film crew. Deadline reports that the actor is playing a lead in the ensemble cast of the film.

For you Marvel Cinematic Universe fans, an untitled Marvel movie has been moved up from July 30, 2021 to February 12, 2021 -that date is almost three years from the premiere of the first Black Panther movie by the way, and a sequel is sure to come somewhere.

Spielberg also has a slate of other projects he is now working on, including a remake of musical "West Side Story" and religion drama "The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara".

When it comes to Disney's 2018 releases, Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck It Ralph 2 has been retitled to Ralph Breaks the Internet while Mary Poppins Returns is moving up a week from December 25 to December 19.

The Walt Disney Company also added two previously-announced films to the schedule: Dwayne Johnson's Jungle Cruise for October 11, 2019, and Angelina Jolie's Maleficent 2 for May 29, 2020. That puts it up against Bumblebee and Aquaman, as well as a slew of other Winter releases.
