The writing was on the wall. The LA Times confirms Pixar has pushed the release of The Good Dinosaur from June 2014 to November 2015.
This follows the revelation that Dinosaur’s director Bob Peterson had been removed from the project.
Dinosaur takes Finding Dory’s release date, which is now set to bow June 2016.
Pixar president Ed Catmull had this to say of the delay:
“Nobody ever remembers the fact that you slipped a film, but they will remember a bad film.
“Our conclusion was that we were going to give the [dinosaur] film some more time.”
Pixar’s next movie is set to be Inside Out, due for release June 19, 2015.
Between Monsters University’s release and Inside Out’s, there will be 24-month wait.
That’s not the longest delay in Pixar history, however.
There were three years between Toy Story (1995) and A Bug’s Life (1998); two-year spaces between Toy Story 2 (1999), Monsters, Inc (2001), and Finding Nemo (2003); and a 19-month break between The Incredibles (2004) and Cars (2006).
