This comes after Disney pushed back the release date of Star Wars Episode 9 to give JJ Abrams more time on the project.

Originally scheduled for release on May 24, 2019, Episode 9 will be moving back to Star Wars' now-traditional Christmas slot with a new December 20, 2019 cinema date.

That decision means that Star Wars Episode 9 will be swapping its release date with Guy Ritchie's live-action remake of the Disney animated classic Aladdin, which is now set to premiere in Episode 9's May 24 spot.
