Disney is making some major changes to its release calendar that includes delaying Mulan from its August 21 release indefinitely, and pushing back the debuts of future Star Wars and Avatar films by a year, reported CNBC.

On Thursday, the company said that cinema closures and production shutdown caused it to make a number of adjustments to its slate.

''Over the last few months, it's become clear that nothing can be set in stone when it comes to how we release films during this global health crisis.

Today, that means pausing our release plans for Mulan as we assess how we can most effectively bring this film to audiences around the world,'' a Walt Disney Studios spokesperson said in a statement on Thursday.

Disney shares fell slightly in after-hours trading and were down nearly 1%.

Mulan is currently listed as unset, meaning its release is delayed indefinitely. This is the fourth time that the live-action film has been delayed since March.

With the film vacating its August release date, there are now no Hollywood blockbusters released set for the month.

Tenet moved out from its August debut on Monday and has yet to announce a new release date.

New Mutants, a 20th Century Fox Feature in the X-Men franchise that has been delayed for the last three years, appears to still be on the Calendar for August 28, but depending on if cinemas reopen next month, the film could be pushed again or delegated to a video on-demand release.
