Disney’s sci-fi fantasy film, 'Artemis Fowl', which was due for release next month on May 29. Will be skipping its theatrical release and will be going straight to Disney Plus. This will be Disney’s first film to do this.
This year’s holiday offerings from Disney; 'West Side Story' and 'The Last Dual', will both be keeping their initial release on Dec 18. 2020 and Dec 25. 2020, alike.
The next installment from Disney’s live-action remakes, 'Mulan' has been pushed to back to July 24. 2020, a release date, that was originally occupied by 'Jungle Cruise', starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt. 'Jungle Cruise' will now release the following year on July 10. 2021.

Pixar’s latest animated movie 'Soul', is yet to be moved from its current release date of June 19. 2020.

Other Disney projects that have been moved, include, action-comedy 'Free Guy', starring Ryan Reynolds, now releasing on Dec 11. 2020, and 'Bob’s Burgers: The Movie' originally for release on July 17. 2020, moved to April 9. 2021. Both movies from Disney’s 20th Century studio.
