Disney Studios halts production on ‘The Little Mermaid,’ ‘Shang-Chi’ and other films
More delays for Disney movies!
Walt Disney Studios has temporarily halted production of its live-action films, including “The Little Mermaid,” which was scheduled to begin shooting in London next week.
The move was targeted to limit potential spread of the coronavirus.
“While there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on our productions, after considering the current environment and the best interests of our cast and crew, we have made the decision to pause production on some of our live-action films for a short time,” a Disney studio representative wrote Friday in a statement. “We will continue to assess the situation and restart as soon as feasible.”
Production of the Marvel film “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” had already ground to a halt in Australia due to fears of the COVID-19 virus spread. The film’s director, Destin Daniel Cretton, is in self-quarantine, awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test.
Stay tuned for more updates as we see them! Stay safe and healthy everyone.
