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."
