The New Mutants is a film with a rocky history. The Marvel superhero adventure has had multiple delays for one reason or another since 2018. The latest release date of the film is set for August 28, 2020, however with COVID-19 cases on the rise again in major cities all across the United States, a new rumor is circulating that The New Mutants will premiere exclusively on Disney+ instead.
A new “leaked” trailer for the film is making the rounds online which shows a premiere date of September 4th on Disney+. You can see that video in a Tweet below:

Some fans are claiming that the trailer is a fan-made fake while others believe that with the current state of events, it would make sense to release the film to the streaming service like Disney did with other planned theatrical releases including Artemis Fowl and The One and Only Ivan.
Last week, it was announced that The New Mutants will have a panel at this years San Diego ComicCon At Home on July 23, 2020 at 2pm PST and feature the cast of the film including Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Henry Zaga, Blu Hunt, Charlie Heaton and director Josh Boone. It’s likely that the fate of the film will be revealed during this panel.
The New Mutants is an original horror thriller set in an isolated hospital where a group of young mutants is being held for psychiatric monitoring. When strange occurrences begin to take place, both their new mutant abilities and their friendships will be tested as they battle to try and make it out alive.
The film stars Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones, gen:LOCK), Anya Taylor-Joy (Split, The Witch), Henry Zaga (13 Reasons Why), Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things) and Alice Braga. Josh Boone directed the film.
