We might be in a pandemic, but cinemas in Singapore are still open. That means that Disney is still releasing movies in theatres in 2021, including multiple Marvel and Pixar flicks.
And that’s not forgetting that just like Mulan and Raya And The Last Dragon, some of these releases might make their way to Disney+ Premier Access, in case you want to watch in the safety of your own home. The Oscar-winning Nomandland by Chloe Zhao is also already out on Disney+.
Without much further ado, here’s the slate for Disney for the rest of 2021! There are a few releases we’ve omitted, such as The French Dispatch and Everybody’s Talking About Jamie have no fixed release date yet. Some orignially on this list, like Luca, have been moved to a Disney+-only release, while Deep Water and Death On The Nile have moved to 2022.
May 27 – Disney’s Cruella
Emma Stone is absolutely chewing scenery in this.
Jul 8 – Marvel Studios’ Black Widow
Finally! Originally slated for May 2020, this will kickstart the next phase of the MCU (in the cinemas, that is).
Jul 29 – Disney’s Jungle Cruise
Another delay … oops. Anyway it has Emily Blunt. And The Rock. Gotta be fun.
Aug 12 – Free Guy
Another film with a delayed release due to COVID-19, this is more of Ryan Reynolds … being Ryan Reynolds I guess. You know, I think I can stop mentioning that the pandemic delayed movie releaeses.
Aug 19 – The Night House
Like The Lake House, but scary and at night. But also totally not The Lake House, except it’s a house by the lake.Aug 26 – The Beatles: Get Back
Peter Jackson is once again in documentary mode, this time with an intimate look at The Beatles cut from 56 hours of unseen footage.
Sep 2 – Marvel Studios’ Shang Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings
I really hope this is awesome. Great teaser tho!
Oct 14 – The Last Duel
Director Ridley Scoot with a screenplay by Oscar-winners Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. But not quite Good Will Hunting 2.
Oct 21 – Ron’s Gone Wrong
The story of Barney, an awkward middle-schooler and Ron, his new (malfunctioning) walking, talking, digitally-connected device. Kinda like me iPhone.
Nov 4 – Marvel Studios’ Eternals
The second Chloe Zhao movie coming out in 2021!
Nov 4 – Antlers
Nov 25 – Disney and Pixar’s Encanto
As you can tell in the teaser, it’s something about Colombia. Lin-Manuel Miranda is doing the music which is something you like, or not, depending on how much time you spend on Tik-Tok
Dec 9 – West Side Story
Steven Spielberg directs yet another adaptation of this musical. Did you know I used to know all the lyrics to this song? They wouldn’t cast me as Tony or Riff … I think I played Krupke. I don’t think I want to remember.
Dec 23 – The King’s Man
But could they put Humpty Dumpty together again?
And not to forget, there’s a little flick titled Spider-Man: No Way Home coming out under the Sony banner later this year. Same date as “Untitled Disney Live Action“, it seems.
Anyway, there’s a lot to look forward to! 2021 is going to fun! But … you know, stay safe, ya’ll.
