Disney is celebrating Chinese New Year in style. The Hollywood studio has shared a dozen new posters, inspired by the Chinese festival, for some of its biggest and most exciting 2020 releases including Marvel Studio’s Black Widow and Pixar’s Soul.
The posters contain the first official look at some hugely anticipated movies including Sir Kenneth Branagh’s Murder On The Orient Express sequel Death On The Nile, and Marvel Studios’ The Eternals, starring Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek.
There’s been no official images of the new MCU film so far, so this is our best look at the studio’s second Phase 4 film so far.
One of the posters also offers a new look at Walt Disney Animation Studios’ mysterious November release Raya and the Last Dragon, which has only been teased in concept art so far.
One 2020 Disney release conspicuous in its absence is Artemis Fowl. The Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures release, directed by Kenneth Branagh and adapted from the 2001 Eoin Colfer novel of the same name, was delayed to May 29, 2020 from its original 2019 release date, however it hasn’t received been honoured with a new poster.

Chinese New Year is a festival that celebrates the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese calendar. In 2020, the first day of the Chinese New Year was on Saturday, 25 January, which began the Year of the Rat. The celebrations, which began on 17 January are full of traditions and feasting, and will officially come to an end on 8 February with the Lantern Festival.
Disney marked Chinese New Year 2019 in a similar fashion, sharing new posters for Captain Marvel, Dumbo, Aladdin, Avengers: Endgame, Toy Story 4, The Lion King and Frozen 2.
