The King’s Man’s debut was pushed to 2021, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, which strongly affected the film industry. Originally scheduled for September 17, The King’s Man will now debut about 5 months later, in late February 2021.
Disney made the announcement through a press release, where it was also announced that Nomadland will have a limited release on December 4 (domestic date) and Luca, Pixar’s next film, will arrive in June next year.
The Eternals, which was postponed to February 2021 after Black Widow took its place at the November premieres, was also entitled to an update, a new title in fact: Eternals.
The distribution rights for The King’s Man passed from 21st Century Fox to Disney after the first asset purchase agreement was finalized last year. In the image gallery above you can see several other franchises that made the transition to the Mickey Mouse house.
Disney has been experimenting with different approaches to the natural resumption of exhibitions, whether with launches in fewer movie theaters, or with more daring methods such as Mulan’s, which will also debut in the company’s new broadcast service, Disney +, which arrives in Portugal on the 15th of September.
