The wait is over friends!!! Choas Walking is finally coming to theaters.... next year! Lionsgate announced the film will be released January 21, 2021.
Production initially wrapped on the YA adaptation in November 2017, with an initial release date of March 2019. But test screenings went poorly and executives thought the film unreleasable, so its date was pulled. Weeks of extensive reshoots were scheduled but could not occur until April 2019 due to the busy schedule of stars Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland. Those reshoots added a whopping $15 million to its budget, ballooning it past the $100 million mark.
It's unknown why Lionsgate is holding off another year but it doesn't inspire any confidence that reshoots made this less unreleasable.
