DreamWorks Animation said Tuesday night that it is pushing back the release date for its animated movie "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" by four months.
The Glendale studio said it was changing the release date for the film from Nov. 1 to March 7, 2014, at the recommendation of its distributor, Twentieth Century Fox. As a result of the decision, "Me & My Shadow," which had previously been scheduled for release in March 2014, will go back into development.
"Our distributor, who has had great success in March with their 'Ice Age' franchise, has recommended we move 'Mr. Peabody & Sherman' to the spring of 2014, which we totally agree is a much more advantageous release window," said Anne Globe, chief marketing officer of DreamWorks Animation, said in a statement.
