Disney are at it again moving Pixar's Soul from June 19th to November 20th and their own Raya And The Last Dragon to March 12th 2021.
This first move, Soul, is an interesting one, Disney recently moved their tentpole picture Mulan to 24th July, I guess they are presuming cinemas will be open again by then, but by moving Soul they seem to be suggesting that things will still be on lockdown in mid June?
The move also puts the film in direct competition with Godzilla Vs. Kong, and since that film has been moved once already I suspect unfortunately that the film may well go direct to streaming, a lot depends how long the lockdown lasts though.
Raya And The Last Dragon was due for a late November release and it makes sense to move the film to 2021.
The scheduling issue are starting to get a bit of a nightmare mind as this move to Raya puts it in loose competition with many tentpole films from various studios, and means that early 2021 is starting to get very crowded.
Expect more re-scheduling from studios as there is still no sign of cinemas opening in the coming weeks.

Spirited Away is arguably one of director Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli best films but in 2001 when the film was originally released it was banned in China, that ban was lifted this week and the film finally got a long overdue release.
There was another animated film released this week in China, and the rest of the world, this week, Toy Story 4, a brand new animation from Pixar and the fourth film in the very successful Toy Story Series.
In most of the world Toy Story 4 has topped the box office, including most of Europe and the United States, but in China the incredible happened and the 18 year old animation beat the brand new films.
This is quite incredible, and good news for cinema and the Chinese box office, I suspect many people in China have seen the film as it has been available on home video for years, but it would seem the public want to see this film on the big screen.
Its not all bad news for the Pixar movie as it has landed on the box office at number 2, but with Spirited Away taking $27.8 Million dollars (converted) compared with $13.2 Million (converted) the Toy Story film took half that of the Japanese animation.
Here is the Chinese top 5 Box Office Weekend of 21st June 2019
20th June 2019
The Men In Black are back and hit the top of the global box office on their debut weekend of release leaving X-Men: Dark Phoenix to drop from the top after only a week.
The series started way back in 1997 and over 20 years later we get the fourth film with new stars and an international setting.
Unfortunately the Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth starring movie has not done nearly as well as the previous film and globally grosses $102.2 million from 57 countries on its debut.
Its been a bit of a slow burner but the Will Smith starring Disney live action film is still at 2 with a global take of $64.2 million from 56 countries.
This pushes the films total gross to a very acceptable $724.8 million after 4 weeks of release.
After making its debut at the top last week the X-Men film falls to number 3 this week with $33.2 million from 56 countries.
The film has now taken a global gross of $204.2 million afer 2 weeks.
The animated movie takes $32.2 million from 37 countries this weekend for a total gross of $154.5 million after 4 weeks of release.
The Godzilla sequel takes $22 million from a whopping 80 countries this weekend and is at 5 on the global box office, the films total gross is $339.4 after 3 weeks of release.
The Samual L. Jackson film is the second highest new film this week at number 9 with a global gross of $8.3 million from a single country of release.
The Marvel movie is struggling to beat Avatar and this week sits at number 12 on the box office with a total gross of $2.742 million.
It has been announced that the film will be pushed at the cinemas again next week with an extra bonus added to the film, it might just be enough to push it past Avatar.
11th June 2019
The latest X-Men movie Dark Phoenix takes over at the top of the global box office on its debut weekend while Godzilla falls herd on its second weekend of release leaving Aladdin to do well with The Secret Life Of Pets 2 also increasing its dominence after a US release.
Hitting the top of the global box office the latest, and probably last, film in the 20th Century Fox X-Men saga the film manages a weekend gross of $140 million from 54 countries.
This is by far the lowest debut of any of the series and after the unfavourable reviews it will most likely end up the lowest grossing movie of the series.
The Disney live action movie is doing well in areas like Europe but not doing so well in North America hence the film manages a good $92.1 million from 56 countries and sits at number 2 this week.
This pushes the films total global gross after 3 weeks to a very respectable $604.8 million.
The animated sequel gets its North American release this weekend and flies back up the box office to number 3 with a weekend gross of $63.1 million from 31 countries.
The films total gross is now at $97 million after 3 weeks of release.
The big monster movie falls hard from the top where it debuted last weekend to number 4 with $62.6 million from 79 countries.
The films total global gross is $292.2 million after 2 weeks of release.
The Elton John bio-pic falls to 5 this week with $27 million from 51 countries for a 3 week total gross of $101.7 million.
The Marvel mega hit falls to number 12 this week with a total global gross of $2.73 Billion after 7 weeks of release.
Its looking increasingly unlikely it will topple the Avatar total of $2.78 Billion although it can't be totally written off yet.
