Disney Shuffles Release Dates, Bumps Up 'Maleficent,' Delays Two Pixar Projects


You're going to have to wait a bit longer for that Finding Nemo sequel.

That's part of the bad news as Disney shuffles its release dates today, bumping Finding Dory out of 2015 and to a new release date of June 17, 2016. The Nemo sequel isn't the only Pixar project to get bumped though.

The Good Dinosaur was bumped from 2014 and won't arrive in theaters now until November 25, 2015.

It's not all bad news though.

Citing a desire to avoid the pileup of the World Cup, Transformers 4 and Fast & Furious 7, Disney bumped up Maleficent to May 30, 2014, two months earlier than its old release date of July 2, 2014.

Disney has also given The Fifth Estate a wide release on October 18. The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Anthony Mackie and had been slated for a limited release.

Kevin Costner's high school track-and-field movie McFarland was also given its release date – November 21, 2014.

Are you bummed that you'll have to wait three years for the Nemo sequel? Happy that Maleficent is coming out earlier? Here's a quick glance at the date changes:
