Briefly: It's time for one more film to join the 2015 calendar. Disney is already releasing Star Wars: Episode VII, The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, amongst some other titles, but now they've also announced that The Jungle Book will hit theaters on October 9th, 2015, with confirmation that Jon Favreau will direct the film based on Rudyard Kipling's classic book. It's the first film to be scheduled for October 2015, so it has no competition yet. In addition, the studio has looked even further into the future to set Alice in Wonderland 2 for release on May 27th, 2016. Both Mia Wasikowska and Johnny Depp will be back with James Bobin (The Muppets) taking over directing duties from Tim Burton. That's all for right now.
