The Walt Disney Company just released an statement with an updated list of the schedule for upcoming movies.

As we know, due to the pandemic happening in the world right, major movies have been pushed back, including Mulan, Avatar and Star Wars.

On Thursday, Disney said that theater closures and production shutdowns during this pandemic caused it to make a number of adjustments to its slate.

“Over the last few months, it’s become clear that nothing can be set in stone when it comes to how we release films during this global health crisis, and today that means pausing our release plans for “Mulan” as we assess how we can most effectively bring this film to audiences around the world,” a Walt Disney Studios spokesperson said in a statement.
