After the movie The New Mutants released in the theatres on 26th of August, 2020 it will now finally arrive on Blu-Ray and Digital HD. The thirteenth and the final instalment in the X-Men franchise is headed to Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, DVD and Digital HD on November 17.
As the 20th Century Studios is all set to bring X-Men spin-off The New Mutants home this November, here is what you need to know about what The New Mutants is all about.
Who is behind the X-Men spin-off The New Mutants?
The movie is based on New Mutants by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod. Distributed by 20th Century Studios, the movie is directed by Josh Boone. Boone wrote the screenplay of the movie with Knate Lee.
The movie was signed in May 2015 and the filming took place in Boston, Massachusetts from July to September 2017. While the movie was originally scheduled to release in April, 2018, Disney’s process of acquiring 20th Century Fox delayed the release of the movie. It finally got a theatrical release on August 28, 2020.
What happens in the finale of The New Mutants?
We see the New Mutants team fight the Demon Bear. They finally make an escape from the facility that Doctor Rayes was keeping them in. The five teenage mutants in the movie are– Mirage, Wolfsbane, Cannonball, Sunspot and Magik.
The movie also includes the first major LGBTQ+ storyline in a major Hollywood superhero movie.
Initially, Boone had planned to adapt the’80s Inferno storyline from the comics which sees Magik transform into the Darkchilde, for the trilogy. Boone adds, “We told her that in the third movie, there would be two of her… and she’d have to play two sides of herself. We were hyped on it!”
While the movie was originally planned as a trilogy, Disney’s acquisition of Fox reverts the film rights to Marvel Studios. Hence, there is no possibility of any sequel to follow for this movie.
