Star Wars: Episode IX, Frozen 2 & Indiana Jones Get Release Dates

More importantly, it makes it the first Episode of the new saga to be released during winter, which is when the first six films were released.

Leia will already appear in this year's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which comes out December 17, since filming had wrapped before her death.

On the Disney live-action adaptation side, Jon Favreau's The Lion King has had a July 19, 2019 given to it, while the studio will release animated fare big on November 25, 2020. a full two years later than expected.

In addition to announcing the release date of Episode IX, Disney also revealed that the fifth Indiana Jones movie will release on July 10th, 2020.
