DreamWorks Animation has announced that Mr. Peabody and Sherman has been moved to March, 7, 2014 from its original date of November 1, 2013. They have also put a hold on Me and My Shadow, which was due to hit theaters March 14, 2014. The studio is decided to make the changes due to a recommendation from its distributor Twentieth Century Fox.
Chief Marketing Officer of DreamWorks Animation Anne Globe had this to say about the changes.
"Our distributor, who has had great success in March with their Ice Age franchise, has recommended we move Mr. Peabody and Sherman to the spring of 2014, which we totally agree is a much more advantageous release window. Mr. Peabody and Sherman is now the first of our three-picture lineup for next year."
Their feature film lineup for 2013 and 2014 will include The Croods on March 22, 2013, Turbo on July 19, 2013, Mr. Peabody and Sherman on March 7, 2014, How to Train Your Dragon 2 on June 20, 2014 and Happy Smekday! on November 26, 2014.
