There's been some Hollywood shuffling today between the two major animated powerhouses, Pixar and DreamWorks Animation. On the same day that the Pixar experts revealed a new official logo for their Monsters Inc. prequel, Monsters University, parent company Walt Disney has pushed back the release from its original November 2, 2012 slot to a new premiere date of June 21, 2013.

No reason was given from Disney on the Pixar delay to the following summer but the studio did move forward their own animated project, Reboot Ralph, from a March 22, 2013 debut to the November 2, 2012 spot.

In response to Reboot Ralph moving out of the March 2013 position, DreamWorks Animation has taken up that space with their upcoming production, The Croods. The Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds-led animation isn't moving far here as its original date of release was March 1, 2013.

Check out the new official logo for Monsters University below.

I always have confidence in all of Pixars projects, seeing as all of their movies have been fantastic, minus maybe Cars IMO. Dreamworks however has never really got me in their corner. Was not into any of the Shrek films or How to train your Dragon. Maybe The Croods will be different.

I'm surprised they haven't gone with Monsters U. , personally, given that the U. would parallel the Inc. short form of Incorporated...
