King’s Man release postponed to 2021


King’s Man’s theatrical release has been postponed until 2021, and in a move not so uncommon these days, King’s Man’s release has been delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It was originally scheduled for release on September 18, but has been pushed back five months to February 26, 2021, according to a press release from Disney.The company also announced that Nomadland will get a limited release on December 4 and that a new Pixar Animation movie , now titled Luca, will be released on June 18, 2021.

Every movie delayed due to coronavirus (so far)

The Eternals, which was pushed back to February 12, 2021 after Black Widow took its place in November, received an updated title according to the press release: Eternals.King’s Man distributors switched from 21st Century Fox to Disney after the latter bought the former last year and hasn’t seen much marketing from Disney since the pandemic began.

This is why such a delay is not surprising. After all, this is not the only one as many films have had their release and production schedule delayed due to the virus. Disney has tried different things to get their movies out during this pandemic. Disney movies like Mulan are going to Disney +, while The New Mutants, which became a Disney movie after acquiring 21st Century Fox, just like The King’s Man, is slated to hit theaters tomorrow.It remains possible that The King’s Man, a prequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service from 2014 and its subsequent sequel, will once again see its release route change if COVID-19 remains an issue next year, but for now, it is scheduled for February 26, 2021..
