Disney also disclosed that the release of its 'The Mutants' and 'Antlers' set for April has been postponed.

"We truly believe in the moviegoing experience, and we are looking at new potential 2020 release dates to be announced at a later date."

'Fast and Furious' has been postponed to April 2, 2021 from the initial date of May 22, making it nearly a year delay.

Authorities around the world have advised against public gatherings in a bid to curtail the spread of the disease.
