As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread across the globe, Hollywood is being forced to delay and reschedule the releases of some of the most anticipated movies of the year.

While some films, like the animated kids feature Trolls World Tour and the rom-com The Lovebirds, have moved from theatrical to digital releases, other major films have either been pushed back or delayed indefinitely altogether.

From Mulan to Scoob, here is a list of all of the movies that have had their release dates affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
