'Jungle Book' Hits Theaters in 2015 & 'Alice in Wonderland 2' in 2016

November 22, 2013

Alice in Wonderland 2 / The Jungle Book

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.

Considering that Alice in wonderland 2 is now coming out on May 27th 2016 does that mean, that Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales will come out 2 months later in July 2016, since its theatrical release year wasn't announced to be any later then 2016 ?

Yeah obviously that's the plan

@disqus_lLFm4AlcDj:disqus You think that's their plan ?

Sean on Nov 22, 2013


Yup, if not in July they might release it in November but it has to be in 2016

Yousef on Nov 22, 2013


@Yousef Honestly, I highly doubt they'll release it in late 2016 or even in November 2016 for that matter, because the previous 4 Pirates of the Caribbean movies haven't been released late, in the years they were released to theaters. If anything, they'll keep Pirates 5's theatrical release date in the Summer of the year its released to theaters. So, with that being said, July 2016 sounds much more likely now that Alice in Wonderland 2 has May 27th 2016.

Not sure about that July release date for Pirates 5 thinking about it. Disney has another Marvel film scheduled for July 8th 2016 according to some news. Maybe in August Pirates 5.

@Charlie_Hard:disqus What about May 2016? I highly doubt it will be released in August 2016.

Two Disney movies with Johnny Depp in the same month? It hasn't been said what his role will be in Alice in Wonderland 2 but I doubt it's going to be a minor role since he was top billed for the first film. We definitely know Jack Sparrow is going to be the main focus for the next Pirates movie as he was in the last one. That being said August seems more reasonable with it also being the end of the Summer. November is another month I had in mind also. I know the previous Pirates films was released early in the year but it seems Disney is going to have to change up that strategy now.

Charlie Hard on Nov 22, 2013


@Charlie_Hard:disqus Well, There is always July 2016 for Pirates 5, if Alice in wonderland 2 isn't moved from its May 2016 theatrical release date, right?

The title of the article says "Jungles Book." Might want to fix that.
