Pixar Moves The Good Dinosaur To 2015
And Finding Dory's off to 2016...

The Good Dinosaur

You hear that sound? That is the sound of millions of voices suddenly crying out in anguish. They’ve just learned that Pixar has pushed The Good Dinosaur back from next year to 2015, which means that – barring some other unforeseen change – there will be no new film from the Emeryville crew next year. That’s it folks: End Times.

All right, so we should probably calm down and stop fear-mongering. The writing was on the cave wall for The Good Dinosaur when word arrived that director Bob Peterson was being removed because the Pixar Brain Trust wasn’t happy with the movie’s creative development. No direct replacement has been named, and now it means that the studio is putting the film back in the workshop for more development. This can surely only be a good thing, because the filmmaking team has a good track record with halting projects and making them work (see, for example, Toy Story 2, Ratatouille and about half the masterpieces they've ever made). Better that they release a film they're happy with than rush something to fit a release schedule.

Disney is moving Maleficent up from July to May next year to plug the release gap, and Dinosaur will waddle to the November 15, 2015 slot previously occupied by Finding Dory. Andrew Stanton’s sequel, in turn, is headed to 2016.

Let us not forget that Pixar hasn’t had a new film out every year since Toy Story, though we have rather been spoiled with their recent release plans. Luxo will be looking a little sadder in the logo today…
