We miss movies: Covid cinema catastrophe

New Releases: “Soul,” “Black Widow,” and “Raya and the Last Dragon” will hopefully reach movie buffs soon.

Ever since the coronavirus, movies and TV shows were put to a temporary halt. Fortunately, many countries’ cases have been going down so productions have started worldwide, with a bunch of new content coming to all different streaming platforms. Being one of the few industries with no clear plan on how to continue through this pandemic, new release dates are constantly being announced.

Keeping the hype for these blockbusters has proven to be a challenge for most companies but many have also turned to social media and new teaser trailers. 

Freshman Bethany Alvarez said, “I was looking forward to seeing the new Disney movie “Raya and the Last Dragon” since its trailer was released a while ago,” and “ I would say I am very active on social media.”

Disney, being the largest entertainment studio, has set release dates for their blockbuster movies alongside other series they’re planning on releasing on their own platform. This includes “Loki,” “The Mandalorian’s” second season, and “Monsters at Work.”
