Disney has announced a whole new list of release date delays for its 2021 films. The delayed movies all fall under Disney's 20th Century Studios banner (formerly 20th Century Fox) and included some highly-anticipated franchise releases like The King's Man. Like every other studio, Disney is responding to the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is now surging out of control in the US, with deaths over 400,000 and projected to reach 500,000 before spring arrives. As such, lockdown and social distancing mandates are expected to be enforced once again, and movie theaters have been left without any major movie releases for the foreseeable future.
