You'll likely already have read about Disney's decision to moveBlack Widowyet again, and its shift to a mixed cinematic/Disney+ Premier Access status. That move is affecting more of its releases, including Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings, Pixar's Luca, origin story Cruella and more.

Cruella is holding firm to its 28 May date, though, like Widow, it'll also debut on Disney+'s paid tier. Luca, meanwhile, is now taking the Soul route and will launch on Disney+ for no extra cost on 18 June.

Shang-Chi, which stars Simu Liu, Awkwafina and more, is decamping to 3 September where, pandemic-permitting, it is scheduled to stay as a cinema-only release.

Other movies affected by the latest round of shifting include Free Guy (off to 13 August), The King's Man (22 December), Deep Water (14 Jan, 2022) and Death On The Nile (floating to 11 February, 2022).

One not mentioned amongst all the movement is Eternals, still in place for a Stateside release on 5 November, though Disney is no doubt taking a wait-and-see strategy.
