Disney has set new release dates for Marvel Studios' Black Widow, The Eternals, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Tens Rings, and more. Find out when you can finally see Disney's Marvel, Pixar, Lucasfilm, Fox and their own studio slate below.

However, the coronavirus pandemic forced Disney to postpone the release of the Scarlett Johansson film until a date that had yet to be determined until now. "Mulan", which been scheduled for March and already had its red carpet premiere, will now open July 24.

The release date shifts for anticipated movies also extends to Marvel's slate. Since theaters won't reopen by then, Disney gave it a holiday release on November 6. Disney shifted Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings to May 7, 2021, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness to November 5, 2021 and Thor: Love and Thunder to Feb 18, 2022. Shang-Chi now takes the May 7, 2021, date that had belonged to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

New Thor is where the dominoes stop falling, resting on February 28, 2022. Black Panther 2 keeps its May 6, 2022 release date, and Captain Marvel 2 opens July 8, 2022.

The Ryan Reynolds-Taika Waititi video game comedy Free Guy moves from this July to December 11. ViacomCBS Inc's Paramount Pictures moved a new animated "SpongeBob" movie to July 31, and AT&T Inc's Warner Bros said it planned to release "Wonder Woman 1984" on August 14. "Jungle Cruise", a family film starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, will bow roughly a year later on July 20, 2021.

Additionally, the new release date for Indiana Jones 5 is July 29, 2022. Artemis Fowl, on the other hand, is now directly debuting on Disney+, with the film adaptation of the same-named, Eoin Colfer-penned fantasy novel having its May 29 theatrical release tossed aside.
