New “Star Wars” & “Avatar” Movies Are Coming to a Theater Near You

Following the mega-success of Avengers: Endgame, Disney recently announced its next blockbusters. The magical movie makers will release three new Star Wars and four more Avatar films over the next few years. Whether your kiddo is a Jedi in the making, a fan of the big, blue Na’vi or both, read on for the need-to-know details.

If you’re not-so-patiently waiting for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (which opens this December), you’ll have an even longer wait for the next big screen gem. Disney’s recent announcement puts the next flick in the franchise at a 2022 debut date. More specifically, the as-yet unnamed film will land in theaters on Dec. 16, 2022.

Disney will release two more Star Wars films, both in December. That is, December 2024 and December 2026.

As far as Avatar release dates go, fans have had their fair share of disappointment. After waiting for more than a decade (the original opened in 2009), Disney set a Dec. 18, 2020 date debut date. After the initial announcement, Disney updated the release to Dec. 17, 2021. The next three Avatar films will hit theaters in December of 2023, 2025 and 2027.
