The spin-off X-Men will not only be streaming.

Disney confirmed at CinemaCon 2019 that 21st Century Fox's The New Mutants X-Men will still be released this year.
At Disney's presentation, Disney's boss, Alan Horn, has confirmed that The New Mutants will be in the theater this year, instead of just receiving a streaming release only by some.
An output chart presented at the convention confirmed Disney's intention to give the film a theatrical release this year. A representative from Fox said some of Fox's movie dates would be out of sync with their original schedule, but did not specifically mention The New Mutants.
The most recent official release date of the New Mutants is August 2, 2019, although this tentative date seems highly unlikely given Disney's recent acquisition of 21st Century Fox and the little we've seen of the film during of the past year. Actress Maisie Williams recently revealed that she also did not know what was happening with the release of The New Mutants.
A short trailer for The New Mutants was released in October 2017. In December, Fox published a poster for The New Mutants, due to be released in April 2018. After the late publication of this publication in February 2019, it was postponed . once again on August 2, 2019.
