- Christopher Robin
- First Man
- Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
- Mary Poppins Returns

- Mission: Impossible – Fallout
- Mortal Engines
- The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

It has also been previously reported that Disney didn't officially submit Han Solo in time, as they missed the deadline, so Solo looks to be out of contention as well.
