Disney Pulls ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 5’ from 2015 Calendar

Move comes after studio bumps up Marvel's 'Ant-Man'

After moving up Marvel’s “Ant-Man” to July 31, 2015, Disney has removed from the calendar its fifth “Pirates of the Caribbean” installment, which previously was slated to bow July 10 that same year.

Disney released a note Tuesday that now lists the “Pirates” pic as “unset.”

The film’s original release date would have returned the “Pirates” franchise to July, after the most recent two installments, “At World’s End” and “On Stranger Tides,” both bowed around Memorial Day weekend. Though Disney has yet to firm a date, it’s reasonable to assume that the studio may claim Memorial Day 2016 for its next “Pirates” pic.

The studio already has a busy summer 2015: Marvel’s “The Avengers” sequel, “The Age of Ultron,” bows May 1, followed by Pixar’s June 19 release “Inside Out.” Disney recently bumped up “Ant-Man” from its previously scheduled Nov. 6 date.

The fifth “Pirates” installment, which is directed by “Kon-Tiki” helmers Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg, is slated to begin production in the fall of 2014. Pic’s start date originally was set for the first quarter, though the studio needed more time in development.
