Release Dates For Disney’s ‘Pirates 5,’ ‘1952,’ ‘Maleficent’ & ‘The Muppets 2’
  |  @   |  

Disney is setting itself up to be a force to be reckoned with for the next few years. That is because they have shifted a couple of dates for some of the biggest tentpoles. In 2014, we’ll be seeing a new Muppets, two Marvel flicks, a live-action reimagining of a classic fairy tale, and Brad Bird‘s 1952.

If that wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, the 2015 slate should make you really happy. In 2015, we’ll be seeing Pirates 5, The Avengers 2, Ant-Man, not one but two Pixar films, and a little something called Star Wars Episode VII. Pretty neat.

Hit the jump to get the full schedule and to find out which films have been cancelled.

‘The Muppets 2’ Update: Bret McKenzie Returns To Write Songs; Film Hits Theaters Next Dec.
  |  @   |  

It wouldn’t be much of a Muppets movie without a few original songs and last year Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords wrote almost all of the songs for last year’s The Muppets – and has an Academy Award to show for it. Now Collider reports that he is coming back to write new songs for The Muppets 2, which is said to feature a crime caper plot. Though no major stars are attached to the film, Christoph Waltz is in talks to appear as an Interpol inspector. James Bobin, who co-wrote the script with Nicholas Stoller, will direct.

Production is set to begin in January in Pinewood Studios in England for a December 2013 release. No doubt Disney wants to capitalize on the same success it had when The Muppets opened in theaters around the Thanksgiving Holiday. No doubt the studio is looking to avoid the box office onslaught that The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will cause during the Thanksgiving holiday, so a winter holiday release seemed like the second-best option.

Other roles for the Europe-set caper comedy include a “Russian femme fatale and a male lead whose intentions are always in question.” There will also be a slew of cameo roles that need to be filled as well.
