Extra! Extra! Another announcement from our mouse overlord about what we can expect from Disney’s movie-machine in the coming years. This time around, two new projects have been added to the grand list of official release dates, Cinderella and a new ‘Phase 3’ project from Marvel.
First up, Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella has been getting quite a bit of hype this last week. Despite still being in the casting phase, Disney has seen fit to put down a solid release date of March 13th, 2015. Let’s hope that not too many sets catch on fire.
Secondly, and perhaps more interesting despite the annoyance it creates within me, another Phase 3 project without a name has been added to the steadily growing list of Phase 3 projects without names.
Phase 3, as it stands now, will begin with Ant-Man on November 6th, 2015. From there, it will continue on May 6th, 2016 with an unnamed project. The year after, there will be a May 5th movie, again unnamed. The new project has been shoe-horned in two months after the second project, on July 8th, 2016.
Whether this means that Disney is just very confident that they can create two summer contenders in one year or not remains to be seen. It’s also a possibility that the second film runs hot off the story of the first one, leading to a grander overarching story. We can always hope.
If we at the NB find anything more about what to expect, we’ll let you know. Until then, keep your fingers crossed for an official Doctor Strange announcement.
Thanks to ComingSoon for the heads-up.
