Movies continue to be delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Disney has now postponed the entire series for 1 year with Avatar’s second film, which is expected to be released next year. Spin-off projects planned for Star Wars will be released one year after the first planned dates.
Disney, one of the largest film studios in the world, continues to postpone many of its films due to the coronavirus pandemic. The company decided to postpone dozens of movies again today. This procrastination process, which will cover almost all of the 2020s, seems to have influenced important series such as Avatar and Star Wars.
Even if a new Star Wars movie is not expected much since Star Wars’ last movie has not passed much time and the viewers are disappointed, it seems that the delay of Avatar will be a reaction. The new Avatar movie, which is normally planned to be released on December 17, 2021, will meet cinema lovers on December 16, 2022 according to the new calendar. With the postponement of this movie, the sequel of the series has also been postponed for a year.
