The Disney-owned studio announced a raft of release date changes on Friday, including to the highly-anticipated Thor: Love and Thunder and Black Widow's long-awaited solo adventure. But this weekend past, the House of Mouse unveiled brand new release dates for all its major titles.

Interestingly, Mulan is sticking to a release date of July 24, having already had its world premiere in Hollywood earlier this month. Instead, Disney said it will now open November 6. Given the state of the film industry and movie theaters, there's definitely going to be a need for big tentpole movies in 2021.

Black Panther 2 will stick to its original May 6, 2022, release date.

Whether cinemas will be back in swing again by then won't matter for fans of Artemis Fowl though.

Our @disneystudios JUNGLE CRUISE is officially pushed by one year to be released JULY 30, 2021.

The risk of death is greater for older adults and people with other health problems. There were 13,383 people hospitalized statewide, with 3,396 in intensive care.

Finally, moving to the MCU and as predicted would happen, all the Marvel movies have essentially been bumped up a spot. Those properties include the previously postponed Mulan (original release date March 26) and Black Widow (original release date May 1).

Two points of interest though: Firstly, there's no mention of Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man 3 to be found anywhere.

Disney has also revealed new release dates for their other films which have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Let us know in the comments! Wes Anderson's The French Dispatch is moving from July 24 to October 16, and the fifth Indiana Jones movie is jumping from July 9, 2021 to July 29, 2022. Steven Spielberg's West Side Story and Ridley Scott's The Last Duel remain put on on December 18 and December 25, respectively.

Disney's 2020 live-action remake of its animated fantasy "Mulan" (1998) will be released in July.

The live-action feature film was previously scheduled for a theatrical release in the USA on May 29, 2020, but will now debut exclusively on Disney+, with a release date to be announced soon.
