For months there has been speculation that The New Mutants, after numerous caused by coronavirus and other problems, may not open in theaters next month as intended. With Disney moving other films intended for theatrical release over to their streaming platform, the finale of Fox’s X-Men made sense for the same, especially given the box office failure of Dark Phoenix.
A new TV spot for The New Mutants appears to confirm a Disney+ debut, only it will be a week later on September 4th.

This comes just a couple of days after a new trailer had suspiciously left out the release date, fueling speculation of another delay as COVID-19 spikes around the country. But it’s just as likely due to an upcoming announcement of a move to Disney+, perhaps tomorrow when Comic-Con @ Home launches.
Until Disney officially releases this TV spot and confirms the news themselves, still take this with a grain of salt. But it certainly does appear that The New Mutants will be available to watch from the comfort of our couches in a couple of months. While part of me is sad to see that happen, this is the new reality we all have to deal with.
