Pixar Movies, 'Finding Dory,' 'The Good Dinosaur,' Delayed Beyond 2014

Disney have announced that the release dates of two new films, The Good Dinosaur and Finding Dory, will be released much later than the originally planned 2014 and 2015 respectively, reports BBC News. The childrens' animated movies have instead had their release dates set much later: Winter 2015 for The Good Dinosaur and Summer 2016 for Finding Dory.

The decision has reportedly been made to aid in the budgeting of new movies within their separate timeframes. Additionally, Pixar's president, Ed Catmull, explained that more time was needed to work on The Good Dinosaur; a movie that explores the notion of humans and dinosaurs co-existing within the same era.

"Nobody ever remembers the fact that you slipped a film, but they will remember a bad film," said Catmull. "Our conclusion was that we were going to give the [dinosaur] film some more time."

With regards to Finding Dory, the studios have explained that the film's large budget and workforce and heavy time demands puts a strain on the animation company's resources "We can't have the amount of labour it takes to do these movies at the same time because it becomes unsustainable economically," said Finding Dory writer Andrew Stanton. "But it means if one director has a problem, everybody's connected to the same bed sheet. You pull one end and it makes wrinkles in the other one. It's a new problem."

Disney and Pixar holding back on film releases means 2014 will be the first year since 2015 that there hasn't been a single Pixar release. The next movie from the studios will be Inside Out, a film set inside a little girl's mind, in 2015. The gap between last summer's Monsters University and 2015's Inside Out will be the longest gap in Pixar filmmaking since 2004's The Incredibles and 2006's Cars.

In addition, Disney's latest announcement also includes the delay of the next Pirates of the Caribbean instalment, Dead Men Tell No Tales, thought to have been caused by the reception of their latest Johnny Depp-starring action flick, The Lone Ranger.

Finding Nemo was released in 2003, meaning children who went to see the movie at the time will now have grown up and will be at least teenagers, especially by the sequel's 2016 release. However, as a result, the film's impact as one of the greatest Pixar movies of all time may garner a much older audience than usual when Finding Dory is released in three years time.
