Disney releases shifted movie schedule for upcoming releases

We noted last week that Disney has decided to shift the release of its already delayed “Artemis Fowl” movie from theaters to Disney+, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg for Walt Disney Studios’ updated release schedule. The calendar is going to look a lot busier with a bunch of films compressed into a new plan.

Of course, even the best laid plans are at risk when faced with an enemy like the unprecedented health emergency we’re facing right now. You’ll notice that the first film is Pixar’s Soul with a release date for June 19, 2020. That may be slightly optimistic.

Update: Pixar’s Soul pushed back to November 2020.

The IHME model used by HealthData.org paints the rosiest scenario looking at June 1st, for just coming out of the worst of the impact on hospitals. Even if things start to open up then in the parks of the nation that have tamped down the hardest, the majority of the population will still be under stay at home orders for at least a few more weeks.

That said, I’m hopeful that we’ll all be watching Pixar’s Soul in late June, which looks like it might be just the emotional pick me up the nation needs to get back on its feet.
