With many studios removing their theatrical movies from their original release dates to new ones because of the cinema closures, Disney have not rescheduled any of their films and today announce that Artemis Fowl will go direct to Disney+.
The film was originally set for release on 9th August 2019 before being moved to 29th May 2020, but unlike many of the studios schedule, like Mulan, Disney have decided to give the Kenneth Branagh directed adaptation of the Eoin Colfer book to their streaming service, there is no date yet when it will appear there.
This is a very interesting move from one of the most powerful studios in the world, and lets hope not, but could show the way forward for studios in this difficult time.
Maybe we will see a time when the big, potential $1 Billion movies, will get moved to other release windows, but the smaller films will go straight to streaming so there is not a massive back catalogue of films to get out in cinemas.
Time will tell, and with no sign of cinemas reopening there is no way to tell if some bigger movies will get the home entertainment treatment as well.

In what is still an unprecedented move Disney and Pixar will release their newest movie Onward on Digital video tonight, only 3 weeks after its initial release, then Disney+ streaming on April 3rd.
The coronavirus pandemic has caused most cinemas in many countries to close, and Disney is one company who will not release box office figures this coming weekend.
This has caused many studios including Disney, Universal and Warner Bros. to release their movies on streaming or digital far sooner than would normally have done.
Film so far getting the early release treatment are The Invisible man, Bloodshot, Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn) and now Onward.
There is a flip side to this, and one which we hope does not stick, the studios are being given the chance to see how releasing films simultaneously on digital and cinema adds up.
Time will tell but these are difficult time for most people, and an unprecedented time, our hope is that all this time indoors will make people realise how important it is to get out of the house, even if it is for a trip to their local multiplex.
