Disney (DIS, $184.09) to release its remaining films for 2021 exclusively in theaters

Disney  said that it will release its remaining films for 2021 exclusively in theaters for a minimum of 45 days, except for "Encanto" ( Encanto will stream on Disney+ after 30 days).

The media/entertainment behemoth said that it would release five films for minimum 45-day exclusive theatrical runs, including filmmaker Ridley Scott's "The Last Duel" to be released on Oct. 15, animated film "Ron's Gone Wrong" on Oct. 22,  and Marvel Studio's "Eternals" on Nov. 5.

"Following the tremendous box office success of our summer films, which included five of the top eight domestic releases of the year, we are excited to update our theatrical plans for the remainder of 2021," Kareem Daniel, chairman of Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution, mentioned in a statement.

"As confidence in moviegoing continues to improve, we look forward to entertaining audiences in theaters, while maintaining the flexibility to give our Disney+ subscribers the gift of 'Encanto' this holiday season," Daniel said.
