Disney Moves "Maleficent" Closer, But "Dinosaur" And "Dory" Farther Away

The Good Dinosaur is moving to 2015.

The Good Dinosaur is moving to 2015.

With the possibility of trying to lure people into the cinema during 2014 World Cup in Brazil and competing against sequels from entrenched franchises Transformers and Fast & Furious, Disney has decided instead to move Maleficent – its film about the villain from Sleeping Beauty and starring Angelina Jolie – back to a May 30, 2014 release from its original release date on July 2. Also, The Good Dinosaur – which had previously been slated for that May 30, 2014 date and lost its director last month – will now be released on November 24, 2015.

In the predicted domino effect, Disney will now move Finding Dory – the sequel to Finding Nemo which had occupied that November 2015 slot – to a release date of June 17, 2016.
