Kingsman Prequel Sees Its Release Date Pushed Back Till September 2020
Multi-billion dollar Disney-Fox deal might be the reason.
Director Matthew Vaughn fans won’t have to skip their dinner dates anymore. The King’s Man is not going to hit the cinemas on Valentines’ Day anymore. The release date to Harris Dickinson and Ralph Fiennes starer Kingsman prequel has been pushed back several months. Some say the Disney-Fox deal is one of the reasons.
The Kingsman Prequel will now Release in September
According to some sources the release date to Matthew Goode and Charles Dance starer, Kingsman Prequel, was changed because of the ongoing Disney-Fox deal.
Quite a few 20th Century Fox movies are either canceled or had their release dates pushed far back. The Kingsman prequel is one of the many Walt Disney victims.
Just like The King’s Man, many other projects will also see delays and cancellations. Spies in Disguise and New Mutants are some of the examples.
Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger had this to say about the $71.3 billion acquisition of 20th Century Fox:
I wish I could tell you that the hardest part is behind us; that closing the Disney-Fox deal was the finish line, rather than just the next milestone. What lies ahead is the challenging work of uniting our businesses to create a dynamic, global entertainment company.
What is The King’s Man movie about?

The King’s Man will not release on 14th February anymore. The release date is now 18th September 2020.
