DreamWorks has removed the upcoming feature, B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations, from its scheduled June 5, 2015 release date.
The studio doesn’t currently have a new release date for the supernatural action comedy, but could release it as early as fall of 2015 or spring 2016. DreamWorks will release two other animated features next year: Home on March 27 and Kung Fu Panda 3 on December 23.
According to LA Times, which first reported the story, it’s unclear why DreamWorks is pushing back the film. Some sources at the studio claim that DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg was “unhappy with the progress of the film,” while others say that its June slot was too competitive, especially since Pixar will release Inside Out that same month.
A DreamWorks spokesperson told the Times, “Animated features are our most valuable asset and we regularly evaluate how to maximize their value, including determining the most opportune time to release a film.”
