Disney Pushes Angelina Jolie’s ‘Maleficent’ Release Forward, Delays ‘Finding Nemo’ Sequel
Disney announced Wednesday that Jolie’s Maleficent, in which the Oscar winner plays Sleeping Beauty’s arch nemesis, has been pushed ahead of its initial release date. The flick is due in theaters May 30, 2014 to avoid clashing with Transformers 4 and Fast & Furious 7 at the box office.
Though this may be good news for live action fans, Pixar diehards will have to wait yet another year for their movies to hit the silver screen. Both The Good Dinosaur and Finding Nemo’s follow-up, dubbed Finding Dory, have been delayed until November 25, 2015 and June 17, 2016 respectively.
Previously, DeGeneres’ big Pixar comeback was slated for fall 2015, but the animation studio shift the project in favor of The Good Dinosaur, which centers around the pre-historic adventures of an Apatosaurus and a human boy.
“So kids, let that be a lesson to you – Anything is possible if you’re patient and you beg hard enough on national television,” the comedienne said of her sequel when it was announced in April.
It looks like DeGeneres is going to have to be a little bit more patient now.
