Disney sets release dates for Pirates, Maleficent, and more

Disney made some announcements regarding upcoming release dates and which movies will be in 3D.

As far as releases go:

The Muppets 2 will be released on March 21, 2014. The film will star Ricky Gervais, Tiny Fey, and Ty Burrell.

Maleficent was originally slated for March 14, 2014 but will now be released on June 2, 2014. The film stars Angelina Jolie in the title role.

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 will be released on July 10, 2015. Jeff Nathanson has been hired to write the script for this Pirates installment. This movie joins the massive 2015 release year which will include Star Wars Episode VII, The Avengers 2, and Justice League. Two of which are fellow Disney releases.

The 3D re-release of The Little Mermaid which was slated for September 13, 2013 has been removed from Disney's release schedule.The guess as to why this happened is the fact that the 3D re-releases of Monsters, Inc and Finding Nemo were basically box office failures.

Now for the inevitable... it was also confirmed that Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy will both be released in 3D. No surprise there.
