After the coronavirus pandemic shut down productions and closed movie theaters, every studio in Hollywood was forced to move many of their major titles out of 2020. This means that 2021 is going to be a massive year for entertainment, with films and TV projects that were supposed to be released in 2020 filling up all available space. Studios have a ton of projects lined up for the new year, and that goes double for Disney, which owns quite a bit of intellectual property.
Between the original Walt Disney Studios, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, 20th Century Studios, and the new Disney+ streaming service, Disney has a slate of more than 30 new movies and TV shows set to arrive in 2021. It’s set to be a massive year for the House of Mouse.
On Tuesday, nearly two weeks after the major Investor Day presentation, Disney released its full slate of 2021 projects. There are 32 in all, two of which remain untitled at this time.
