The New Mutants plans to come in August

After being pushed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Maisie Williams-starrer The New Mutants has got a new release date. The film will open in August.

Disney has added The New Mutants back to its release calendar, setting the X-Men superhero adventure for release on 28 August, reports variety.com.

The New Mutants, starring Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy and Charlie Heaton, has been delayed numerous times. It was originally slated to debut in 2018. Disney got the film after the merger with Fox.

The film is based on the comic-book series, and follows five young mutants trapped in a secret facility against their will. Josh Boone has directed the film.

The studio also moved the animated film Ron’s Gone Wrong from February 26, 2021 to April 23, 2021. An untitled 20th Century title previously set for that date has been removed from the schedule.

Earlier this year, as a response to the closure of cinemas, Disney reshuffled the release dates for most of its upcoming titles, including Mulan (now set for July 24), Black Widow (November 6), Pixar’s Soul (November 20) and The Eternals (February 12, 2021).
