Also, the Tom Cruise sequel "Top Gun: Maverick" is now about a year away -- July 2, 2021.

For Disney, "Mulan" was supposed to hit theaters next month, but its release date is now unset.

The next installment of "Avatar" is now 2022.

And now fewer than untitled "Star Wars" films are all pushed back a year, with the first coming in 2023.
