Disney said today that the remaining films on its 2021 slate will get an exclusive theatrical window before they stream on Disney+.
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Encanto will bow November 24 with a 30-day exclusive theatrical window. Five other pics will have a 45-day exclusive run in cinemas: The Last Duel (October 15), Ron’s Gone Wrong (October 22), Eternals (November 5), West Side Story (December 10) and The King’s Man (December 22).
The announcements come amid the heated debate over day-and-date theatrical/streaming windows, which only has been exacerbated by Covid restrictions.
“Following the tremendous box office success of our summer films which included five of the top eight domestic releases of the year, we are excited to update our theatrical plans for the remainder of 2021,” said Kareem Daniel, Chairman, Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution. “As confidence in moviegoing continues to improve, we look forward to entertaining audiences in theaters, while maintaining the flexibility to give our Disney+ subscribers the gift of Encanto this holiday season.”
