Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, Muppets 2 And Maleficent Set New Release Dates
Disney has a ton of movies coming up that you're excited about, from further adventures for the Avengers to a Muppets sequel, and now we finally have a better sense of exactly when we can expect them. The studio announced release dates for a whole slew of their upcoming projects, in addition to adding 3D treatment for two of the biggest one, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy. Oddly enough they canceled another 3D re-release-- The Little Mermaid had been scheduled for a return to the big screen in September, but that's now been canceled.
As for the new dates, here's the rundown straight from the studio itself:
THE MUPPETS 2 is now dated on 3/21/14.
All of these were projects we knew about previously, though Maleficent-- starring Angelina Jolie as the classic Disney villain-- is the only one that's already been shot. The Muppets 2, starring Ricky Gervais and Tina Fey, is starting production in Europe this week, and Pirates of the Caribbean 5 recently brought on a new screenwriter, which likely puts it a little while away from shooting. As for "1952," the top-secret project from director Brad Bird and writer Damon Lindelof with George Clooney maybe starring, that whole thing is so under wraps we didn't even realize it would be coming to theaters in less than two years.
If you're keeping track of how 2015 is shaping up, this is what we now have for that year: Pirates 5. The Avengers 2. Star Wars Episode VII. Ant-Man. And all of that's just from Disney! Add in new Fantastic Four and Justice League movies, plus potential for Avatar 2, and fans of giant blockbusters had better start saving now to be able to afford all the moviegoing that 2015 will bring.
