There's no indication if this is a result of the Disney purchase, but regardless, "New Mutants" will now come out on February 22, 2019 instead of April 13, 2018.

For some reason, however, Fox has chose to shake things up with their X-Men-related release dates and has pushed Deadpool 2 forward while pushing back New Mutants. That being said, Fox's X-Men franchise would benefit greatly from a Kitty Pryde film. Just look at Storm's appearance in X-Men: Days of Future Past, in which her role was reduced to a few fights and one underwhelming death scene.

THR detailed the Fox scheduling changes noting "Insiders say one reason for the change is for the studio to avoid having an overlap with X-Men movies in certain overseas marketplaces, where Mutants and Deadpool 2 would have been in theaters at the same time".

The New Mutants, Josh Boone's horror-tinged take on Marvel's teen heroes, gets pushed back 10 months.
