Disney Has "Planes" Sequel at the Gate and Plays Musical Chairs With Release Dates
You can say what you want about Disney – and many people have – but you cannot say they are not prepared to make even more money than they already have. Toward that end, Disney has already announced a sequel to its yet-to-be-released Planes film, changed the title on its Muppets movie and switched around some release dates. The sequel to this summer’s Planes movie will be Planes: Fire and Rescue, the Muppets movie [starring Ricky Gervais and Tina Fey] will be changed to Muppets Most Wanted [from The Muppets…Again] and release dates were announced or changed for Saving Mr. Banks [December 13, 2013], Muppets Most Wanted [March 21, 2014], Planes: Fire and Rescue [July 18, 2014], The Hundred-Foot Journey [August 8, 2014], Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day [October 10, 2014], Tomorrowland [December 12, 2014] and Into The Woods [December 25, 2014] as well as two untitled Marvel projects for May 6, 2016 and May 5, 2017, respectively.
Planes is currently scheduled to be released on August 9, 2013.
