Disney Shuffles ‘Maleficent,’ ‘The Good Dinosaur’ and ‘Finding Dory’
A scheduling shakeup by Disney has moved The Good Dinosaur from May 30, 2014 to Nov. 25, 2015, making next year the first since 2005 without a Pixar movie.
The shuffle also sees Maleficent nudged from July 2, 2014 to The Good Dinosaur‘s original release date, to May 30, and way from Transformers: Age of Extinction and Fast & Furious 7, which debut on June 27 and July 11, respectively. The Pixar sequel Finding Dory was bumped from Nov. 25, 2015, now occupied by The Good Dinosaur, to July 17, 2016.
Deadline draws a likely connection between the rescheduling of The Good Dinosaur and the departure last month of director Bob Peterson. No replacement has been announced.
