Soul and Mulan were screened out last year and the latest Pixar, Luca, will suffer the same fate. While in France, Raya and the Last Dragon is still scheduled for April 21 at the cinema, the other countries are “ahead” and are already waiting for the next Marvel streaming for July 2021.
Disney disrupts (once again) its line-up. Indeed, after several postponements, one of Hollywood’s most lucrative studios announces that its next films are undergoing new theatrical release dates and that others will arrive directly on the Disney + platform. We learn that in France, Shang-Chi And The Legend of The Ten Rings is postponed to September 2021, The King’s Man – First Mission in December 2021, Deep Waters in January 2022 and Death on the Nile in February 2022.

French, US and Belgium release date: June 18, 2021 on Disney +
Just like its masterful predecessor Drunk, Pixar studios will once again have to bow and see the new animation classic erase the cinema box. The film looks like Call Me By Your Name childish will be available on Disney + at no extra charge and in most countries with the streaming platform. In a very pretty little coastal town on the Italian Riviera, a young boy, Luca, has an unforgettable summer that he shares with his new best friend. But this happiness is threatened by a well-kept secret: both are in reality sea monsters from another world.
Marvel: BLACK WIDOW by Cate Shortland

The next Marvel Studios feature film dedicated to Natasha Romanoff runs from May to July 2021. Initially supposed to open Phase IV of the MCU since early 2020, it’s finally the mini-series WandaVision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier who took care of it the last few weeks. Black widow should make it possible to “restart” the cinema industry in the US and France at the start of the summer depending on sanitary conditions. Without a media chronology, the United States and Belgium will therefore still be able to choose to discover the action film at the cinema or directly at home via Disney + for an additional charge.
Disney: CRUELLA by Craig Gillespie
French release date: May 26, 2021 in theaters US, Belgium release date: May 28 in theaters and on Disney +
As for Mulan, the next live-action from Disney studios will also arrive directly in theaters and on Disney + in the US. The prequel dedicated to the famous Cruella d’Enfer des 101 Dalmatians, played by Emma Stone this time around, will take place in London in the midst of the punk rock movement.
For Disney, which now seems to see only through its streaming service, this decision reflects the hard blow currently being experienced by cinemas that have suffered the pandemic and could have counted on Hollywood blockbusters to bring people back to the screens. giants.
