Movie sequel Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway has been postponed amid increasing concerns over the coronavirus.

The follow-up to 2018's hugely popular Peter Rabbit had been set to arrive at European cinemas on March 27, and open in the US on April 3. However, Sony said the sequel will now launch on  August 7.

The new film features James Corden once again voicing the mischievous rabbit, adapted loosely from the series of children's books by Beatrix Potter.

The first Peter Rabbit movie, which also featured the voices of Margot Robbie, Daisy Ridley, Elizabeth Debicki and the singer Sia, was a hit for Sony, making more than $350 million worldwide.
