Disney has just announced the release dates for Dreamworks’ Ghost In A Shell, starring Scarlett Johansson in the lead role, as well as their remake of Pete’s Dragon. They have also shifted the schedules for Jon Favreau‘s Jungle Book and Craig Gillespe‘s coast guard film The Finest Hours starring Chris Pine and Casey Affleck.

Rupert Sanders (Snow White And The Huntsman) will direct a live-adaptation of the hit anime Ghost In A Shell, with the film slated for an April 4, 2017 release. While the Avengers actress’ schedule is busy, it shows that Disney wants to get the film out sooner than later. Also, with the recent cast announcements for the Pete’s Dragon remake, with Dexter‘s Michael C. Hall and Wes Bentley (American Horror Story: Freak Show) signing on, it only makes sense that the studio reveal the release date for the film, which will be August 12, 2016.

In a not-so-surprising move, Disney has pushed the release date for Faverau’s live-action CGI hybrid adaptation of The Jungle Book from its October 9, 2015 release to April 15, 2016. The move only tells us that Faverau needs more time to get the vision of the film right, and so if that means it needs to be released at a later date, then so be it. Gillespe’s The Finest Hours will take its old slot on October 9, 2015.

Looking at the schedule, The Jungle Book opens against Universal’s The Best Man Wedding and Sony’s Goosebumps starring Jack Black, with Universal’s The Huntsman will open a week after.

David Lowery‘s Ain’t Them Bodies Saints has some stiff competition. Opening one week after Warner Bros.’s DC adaptation Suicide Squad, the film will go up against the Zac Efron/Robert De Niro comedy Dirty Grandpa and the Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg R-rated animated film Sausage Party.

Ghost In A Shell opens a week after Pacific Rim 2, and a week before Universal’s Untitled Monster Franchise Film.
