Updated June 12, 2020: Removed The One and Only Ivan , which is going straight to Disney+ on Aug. 21, 2020.

It's been, at minimum, a few weeks since anyone's seen a movie in a theater. And while no one can say for certain when the box office will open again, Disney already is planning for that eventuality — starting in mid-June.

The company has released is schedule for the rest of 2020, and for 2021 and 2020, starting with Soul on June 19. Notable changes include Black Widow arriving on Nov. 6, 2020, The Eternals on Feb. 12, 2021, and Jungle Cruise landing July 30, 2021.

Of course, this is all contingent on theaters actually opening back up. It's entirely possible we'll see other titles hit Disney+ ahead of any time on the big screen — in fact, Disney just announced that Artemis Fowl will debut on Disney+ first, on a date to be announced.

From Disney's press release:

"With audiences largely unable to attend theatres in the current environment, we are thrilled to offer the premiere of Artemis Fowl on Disney+," said Ricky Strauss, president, Content & Marketing, Disney+. "Director Kenneth Branagh and his spectacular cast take viewers right into the vibrant fantasy world of the beloved book, which fans have been waiting to see brought to life onscreen for years. It's great family entertainment that is the perfect addition to Disney+'s summer lineup."

Will Disney have to change things up again? It's certainly possible. In the meantime, here are the upcoming release dates for the next two-plus years:
