Jonathan Majors found guilty of two counts in assault trial

  • Jonathan Majors found guilty on two counts of harassment and assault, acquitted on two other counts
  • Actor faces up to one year in jail; sentencing trial set for February 6th
  • Disney removed Magazine Dreams from its release calendar due to Majors’ domestic abuse charges

As reported by Variety, a Manhattan jury found Jonathan Majors guilty of two misdemeanor counts of harassment and assault, but acquitted him on two other counts. He was found not guilty on one count of intentional assault in the third degree and aggravated harassment in the second degree. Majors’ sentencing trial is set for February 6th, and he faces up to one year in jail. It is believed that his domestic abuse charges led Disney to remove Magazine Dreams from its release calendar.

On October 25, a New York judge denied a motion to dismiss the case against Majors, who was arrested on March 25 following an alleged dispute with then-girlfriend Grace Jabbari. Majors was subsequently charged with assault and aggravated harassment. The Marvel actor pled not guilty to all charges, and his attorneys have maintained that Jabbari was the aggressor. On the same day Majors’ motion was denied, Jabbari was arrested on misdemeanor charges of suspicion of assault and criminal mischief concerning the same incident, but charges against her were dropped after the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office confirmed she was the victim, not the perpetrator.

Magazine Dreams was scheduled for release on December 8. The film, which premiered at Sundance in January, stars Majors as an amateur bodybuilder who dreams of stardom in professional weightlifting competitions. Disney has not commented on the matter and could potentially add Magazine Dreams back to its release schedule at a later date. The company has also postponed its live-action Snow White remake and Pixar’s Elio until 2025.

Prior to his legal issues, Majors had a successful year professionally, starring in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Disney+’s Marvel series Loki, and Creed III. He is set to be featured in two upcoming Avengers sequels scheduled for 2026 and 2027. Loki director Kasra Farahani recently spoke about working with Majors before his legal troubles, stating that the experience on set was “without any drama, and just a joy.”
