Anne Hathaway’s ‘Sesame Street’ Release Date Shifts Again, Now Set for January 14, 2022

Warner Bros. has shifted the release date of their feature film adaptation ‘Sesame Street’ once again, to January 15, 2022, out of June 4, 2021. Anne Hathaway (‘Ocean’s 8,’ ‘Serenity’) will star, and her busy schedule lead to the first delay. Reasons for the second delay are unknown, but it is back in January like the original 2021 slot.

Moreover, the premise is below:

“Big Bird and his Sesame Street friends are mysteriously expelled from their neighborhood, finding themselves in Manhattan. They team up with a plucky history show host Sally Hawthorne who’s on a quest to save her show and prove that Sesame Street actually exists, with obstacles created by the “evil” mayor, with reasons of his own for keeping Sesame Street hidden from the world.”

Jonathan Krisel (‘Portlandia,’ ‘Baskets’) will serve as director, while ‘The Kings of Summer’s Chris Galletta wrote the most recent draft of the screenplay.

Krisel said that “It’s going to be big,” with a budget that could be in the $50 million range. Bo Burnham (‘Eighth Grade’) will create original songs for the film.

The only competition on this date is the Disney/Fox film ‘Nimona.’
