With the general consensus that this year's Best Animated Feature Oscar race is a little on the lean side, we'll be hoping for a better crop next year. That may well be the case, but it'll have to happen without any help from category stalwarts Pixar. It appears that the blockbuster merchants have bumped their planned summer 2014 feature, "The Good Dinosaur," forward a full 18 months -- it'll now open on November 25, 2015. That was the date formerly occupied by "Finding Nemo" sequel "Finding Dory," for which you'll now have to wait until June 2016. All that will make 2014 the first year since 2005 with no new Pixar feature. Hard news for fans, particularly those of us who didn't think "Brave" or "Monsters University" were in the studio's top tier. Here's hoping they come back firing on all cylinders. [Variety]
