Disney has announced that it will temporarily shut down production on all of its upcoming Disney+ Marvel shows and films amid COVID-19 concerns, according to Variety. This news comes just a few days after Disney halted production on its upcoming Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
It remains unclear how long the pause on production will last. At the time of writing, Disney has made no announcement regarding delayed release dates for Loki and WandaVision.
Additionally, earlier this week Disney announced that it would delay its live-action Mulan film indefinitely, which was slated for a March 27 release date.
Disney is hardly the first entertainment outlet to be affected by the coronavirus, as films like Fast and Furious 9, No Time to Die, and The New Mutants have all experienced delays. In fact, we’ve got a full list of all movies and TV shows affected by COVID-19.
Despite all of the delays, Disney has announced that Frozen 2 will come to Disney+ three months early so those trapped at home can enjoy it. Additionally, The Rise of Skywalker has been made available for digital purchase a few days early. French citizens might also find it difficult to go to the movies, since their government just ordered the closing of all theaters.
Outside of its media entertainment services, Disney has also shut down both Disney World and Disneyland in an attempt to prevent further spread of COVID-19. This is only the fourth time in history that Disneyland has been closed.
