Pixar is pushing the release of its animated prequel Monsters University from November 12, 2012 to June 21, 2013. Disney's secretive project Reboot Ralph, which was originally set to open March 22, 2013, has been moved to the November 12, 2012 release date.

It is said that Reboot Ralph, which tells the tale of an obsolete video game character, is ahead of schedule. It seems the studio wants to launch Monsters University in the summer season, though, which caused the release date shift. Here's what Disney distribution executive Chuck Viane said about the move.

"With the tremendous summer successes Pixar has had, it's the perfect window for Monsters University. At the same time, we're thrilled that our momentum on Reboot Ralph will allow us to get the film to audiences much sooner than expected."

Both Monsters University, which features Sully and Wazowski going to school in this prequel, and Reboot Ralph will be released in 3D.

Monsters University was released June 21st, 2013 and stars Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Helen Mirren, Peter Sohn, Joel Murray, Sean Hayes, Dave Foley. The film is directed by Dan Scanlon.

Wreck-It Ralph was released November 2nd, 2012 and stars John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Alan Tudyk, Mindy Kaling, Joe Lo Truglio, Ed O'Neill. The film is directed by Rich Moore.

    @ChiRep-1 - I grant it that.

    Dude, I give you props. You have no idea how many times I've run into folks who think "if it's animated, it's Disney," but that was the polar opposite. Awesome! :D

    I don't get all the hate for the Spidey reboot, when it really needs one :P

    @diaigma Lol good point, atleast its towards the beginning of the summer so we can mock them rather than dread the idea of school.

    Monsters Inc. used to be my favorite Dreamworks film, until I found out it was Pixar =P

    I don't get all the hate, there's enough material here to easily make a sequel or prequel. I'll watch it..

    Milking the summer crowd while letting (single) Disney titles flounder.
    I see how it is. Round of applause, guys. Round of applause :P

    Thumbs up for prolonging this release two summers from now. Nothing like watching a movie about school in the summertime! :D

    @thedude-abides So it's gonna be like an 80s version of a megaman kind of character in modern games like Call of Duty, Halo and Fallout, right?

    "The Disney animated film Reboot Ralph was previously known as Joe Jump. That story was about a low-bit video game character from the early 1980s who ends up in the high-bit world of modern videogames. Rich Moore is attached to direct."
