Disney’s upcoming “Cosmos” movie is headed to theaters across the country in 2019, with the new film based on the popular science fiction television series scheduled to hit theaters in September 2019.
The new film, which stars Anthony Hopkins as a “Cosmonaut” and Josh Gad as a scientist on an expedition to the International Space Station, is set for release on September 30, 2019, but it’s already been confirmed that the film will hit theaters this fall.
In a statement to TheWrap, a Disney spokesperson said that the new “Cosmos” movie will be directed by “Cosmo,” and that it will feature “some of the most amazing, inspiring and fun characters in science fiction history, including many from the original ‘Cosmonauts.”
The film is set to hit cinemas this fall and is expected to bring in around $100 million at the box office.
The “Cosmas” series has long been a favorite for audiences, with audiences eagerly anticipating the return of the original series, which has been hailed as a cultural phenomenon.
In the first two “Cosms” films, Hopkins and Gad both played astronaut “Cosmen,” with Hopkins portraying the first astronaut on the space station, while Gad portrayed the second.
Hopkins and his fellow “Cosman” are also voiced by the likes of Stephen Lang and Robert Picardo.
In addition to Hopkins and the other “Cosmes,” Gad is also reprising his role as the villain in the first “Cosma” film, who uses a device called a “cosmonaut suit” that allows him to go into space.
He later goes on to become the commander of the space program, with “Cosmopolis” coming in at number four on the list of films that are set to bring home the top prize at the Oscars.
The upcoming “cosmos” films are set in the fictional universe of the show, and will explore the history of the station, its astronauts, and the events that lead up to the series’ current series finale.
