Disney reveals cinema release schedule all the way up to 2028

Star Wars, Marvel, Avatar, Indiana Jones, Pixar and many live-action Disney adaptations are all on the horizon for the coming years.

Hot off the heels of D23, where Disney made some big revelations about new and continuing properties within the worlds of Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, Indiana Jones and, yes, Disney, the company has just released a brand-new release schedule.


There have been some notable changes and some big announcements (and also some interesting removals), so we'll break them down year-by-year below.


Nothing much to report here, except for the five-week difference in Empire Of Light between the US and Ireland/UK release date, in order to make sure it will be getting Oscar consideration.

Avatar (re-release) - 23 September


Amsterdam - 7 October

The Banshees of Inisherin - 21 October

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever - 11 November

The Menu - 18 November


Strange World - 23 November

Empire of Light - 9 December (13 January in Ireland/UK)

Avatar: The Way of Water - 16 December



It finished filming in January 2020, but Taika Waititi's true-life soccer comedy Next Goal Wins finally - finally! - has a release date. Additionally, the all-star Haunted Mansion moves to a closer-to-Halloween release date.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania - 23 February

Next Goal Wins - 21 April

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 - 5 May

The Little Mermaid - 26 May


Elemental - 16 June

Untitled Fifth Indiana Jones Movie - 30 June

The Marvels - 28 July

Haunted Mansion - 11 August

Untitled 20th Century Movie - 15 September

True Love - 6 October

Blade - 3 November

Wish - 11 November


The latest live-action adaptation, Snow White, with Gal Gadot perfectly cast as the Evil Queen, has been confirmed for this year. Ditto for Inside Out 2 (previously it was Untitled Pixar Movie), and the same for the live-action Lion King prequel.

Elio - 3 January

Disney's Snow White - 22 March

Captain America: New World Order - 3 May

Untitled 20th Century Movie - 24 May

Inside Out 2 - 14 June

Mufasa: The Lion King - 5 July

Thunderbolts - 26 July

Untitled Marvel Movie - 6 September

Fantastic Four - 8 November

Untitled Third Avatar Movie - 20 December


This will be the first Star Wars movie to arrive since 2019's The Rise of Skywalker, and it will likely be Taika Waititi's project. Patty Jenkins' Rogue Squadron was originally scheduled for December 2023, but has been mysteriously completely wiped from Disney's schedule.

Untitled Marvel Movie - 14 February

Avengers: The Kang Dynasty - 2 May

Untitled Marvel Movie - 25 July

Avengers: Secret Wars - 7 November

Untitled Star Wars Movie - 19 December


Lots and lots and lots of untitled Marvel movies here, so we should fully expect some of these to be filled by the full introduction of the X-Men to the MCU. Additionally, Deadpool 3 will likely be one of these, too.

Untitled Marvel Movie - 14 February

Untitled Marvel Movie - 1 May

Untitled Marvel Movie - 24 July

Untitled Marvel Movie - 6 November

Untitled Fourth Avatar Movie - 18 December


Christmas for the foreseeable future will be dominated by Disney's one-two punch of Star Wars movies and Avatar movies. This one could be the one reportedly in development by J.D. Dillard (Sleight, Sweetheart), but who knows for sure?

Untitled Star Wars Movie - 17 December


Obviously there will be more than one Disney movie coming out in 2027 and 2028, but these are the only ones with "confirmed" release dates at the movie. 2028 will also see the fifth (and final?) Avatar movie hit cinemas.

Untitled Fifth Avatar Movie - 22 December
