A new report suggests that Star Wars and Marvel fans could be getting some news about these franchise’s current movie slates with new projects announced this Thursday.
While Marvel fans have known what movies they can look forward to for some time, Star Wars fans really have no idea, except for some tentative dates that are a few years away.
However, this could all change this week as Deadline is reporting Disney will announce its upcoming movie and TV slate on Thursday 10th December.
Journalists Peter Bart and Mike Fleming discuss the news in the context of Warner Bros. decision to bring their movies to HBO Max in 2021:
“Disney on December 10 will announce its upcoming slate. While the studio will solidify what Deadline revealed recently — that the Tom Hanks-starrer Pinocchio, Peter Pan and the Emma Stone-starrer Cruella will bypass movie theaters to become Disney+ releases — the studio will also announce new projects from Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar that will encompass TV as well as theatrical. It will be a gesture toward not abandoning the exhibitors. The WarnerMedia guys can perhaps make the same case – they took the beating releasing Tenet in the summer, and will provide a stream of films during the lean months of 2021 while other studios have abandoned the turf – but I’m not sure it has been received as the one-off plan it is purported to be.”
Hopefully, we get some exciting news! Any announcements of new Star Wars and Marvel projects will certainly be a great early Christmas present for fans.
