LOS ANGELES — The Walt Disney Company is shifting some film releases around including moving “Avengers: Infinity War” up one week and pushing the live-action “Mulan” back almost a year and a half.

On Thursday, the studio said “Avengers: Infinity War” will now hit theaters on April 27, 2018 while “Mulan” is set for March 27, 2020.

The “Mulan” update recently found its lead in Chinese actress Liu Yifei after a year-long search.

Disney also set release dates for 28 untitled films through February 2023 from Marvel, Pixar, and Disney live action.                 /kga
