Disney Gives Six Upcoming Films a Theater-Exclusive Release While Adding Four New Marvel Movies to Their Slate In 2024

Emboldened by the success of “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” over Labor Day weekend, Disney is now committing six more of its upcoming films to the 45-day theatrical exclusive window before they premiere on Disney+ and other digital platforms.

The six releases Disney will be giving this treatment are “Eternals,” “The Last Duel,” “West Side Story,” “Ron’s Gone Wrong,” “The King’s Man,” and “Encanto.” Also, “Encanto” will have a slightly different deal, with only a 30-day theatrical window before debuting on Disney+.

Along with this news for Eternals, Disney revealed that Marvel Studios will block off four release dates throughout 2024: February 16, May 3, July 26, and November 8.

While which movies will occupy those dates have not been officially announced, films such as the “Fantastic Four” reboot, “Blade,” and “Deadpool 3” could be contenders as they are already in various forms of production.
