How long was Disney holding this surprise in their deep pockets? It was announced today that Maleficent 2 will be released October 18, 2019. That’s right, 2019.
The sequel to the 2014 hit was originally set to be released May 2020, but Disney has decided to move that date forward, which means their 2019 schedule is packed, stacked, and a little bit whack.
Disney will release Captain Marvel this weekend, followed by the live-action retelling of Dumbo, Avengers: Endgame, Aladdin, Toy Story 4, The Lion King, Frozen 2 and finally Star Wars: Episode IX.
What the hell right? Disney movies grossed over $7.3 billion worldwide in 2018, and it looks like 2019 will be even higher. I mean, Frozen 2, Star Wars, Avengers, LION KING…THEY ARE TAKING OVER! Honestly. Disney is taking over Hollywood, and I’m not so sure that’s a good thing.
Anyway, back to Maleficent 2. Almost forgot about that. In addition to the new release date, Disney also gave fans a new poster. You can check it out below…[mashshare]
