Could Most of Disney’s Biggest 2020 Movies Debut on Streaming?

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the immediate future of Hollywood is changing by the minute. Studios are continually pushing 2020’s biggest movies until the tail end of the year, early 2021, or some undetermined time thereafter. But considering the studio’s commercial dominance these days, all eyes are on what Disney is going to do.

Although this year doesn’t bring anything as hotly anticipated as Avengers: Endgame or Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the studio does have several top-dollar productions on the 2020 schedule. The first of which, Pixar’s Onward, briefly hit theaters on March 6, only to be released digitally just two weeks later. The film is even set to arrive on Disney+ on April 3, less than a month after its theatrical debut.

Disney reacted swiftly in the cases of Onward and Frozen II, which also hit Disney+ months earlier than planned. Now many fans and industry insiders are wondering just how many of the studio’s big 2020 releases will wind up forgoing a theatrical run altogether.

Disney already pulled ‘Mulan’ and ‘Black Widow’ from the schedule

Following Onward, the next two films Disney had scheduled for the spring have already been removed from the schedule. The live-action Mulan was supposed to be released in theaters on March 27, 2020. That film’s very imminent release — and the prevalence of coronavirus in China — made a schedule change more of a necessity.

But that wasn’t the case for Marvel Studios’ Black Widow. The first release in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe wasn’t due until May 1. Yet, Disney erred on the side of caution, given the growing number of coronavirus cases worldwide.
