Unsurprising news arrives that the next big screen Star Wars project has been pushed back 12 months, from December 2022 to 22nd December 2023, and then every 2 years after that, landing on 19th December 2025 and 17th December 2027.

Disney announced major changes to the studio’s release calendar in a shakeup that involves delaying its “Star Wars” movies and “Avatar” sequels out one year.

The studio still plans to dominate moviegoing around the holidays when theaters are able to reopen. Each year between 2022 and 2028, Disney will release a new “Star Wars” adventure or “Avatar” follow-up.

James Cameron’s long-delayed sequels to Avatar” will now be released every other December starting in 2022 as follows: “Avatar 2” (Dec. 16, 2022), “Avatar 3” (Dec. 20, 2024), “Avatar 4” (Dec. 18, 2026) and “Avatar 5” (Dec. 22, 2028).

Meanwhile, a trio of “Star Wars” movies will debut around Christmas every year starting in 2023. The first of three films will launch on Dec. 22, 2023 and two follow-ups will hit theaters Dec. 19, 2025 and Dec. 17, 2027.

We discussed this very situation earlier this week on the latest episode of Making Tracks, which you can listen to here.
