‘The New Mutants’ Sticking To August 28 Theatrical Release; Not Heading To Disney+

 

While it was indicated well before their Comic-Con@Home panel, Disney is keeping 20th Century Studios/Marvel’s The New Mutants on the theatrical release calendar.

Rumors were flying around yesterday that the horror-mutant movie was headed to Disney+ in September. This was allegedly spurred on by a fan-made trailer posted to trash-site reddit. Buzz has dogged this much delayed film well before the Disney-Fox merger that it was headed to Hulu, but that never happened, and Disney today –fingers crossed– indicated before today’s panel that New Mutants would stick to its current Aug 28 release date.

 

Also unveiled at today’s panel with filmmaker Josh Boone and the cast Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, Blu Hunt, and Henry Zaga was the pic’s opening sequence with Dani aka Mirage at the 24:17 point in the video above. She survives some apocalyptic havoc only to find herself chained in a hospital. The adventure begins.
