Kung Fu Panda 3 Backs Down From Star Wars: The Force Awakens


DreamWorks Animation and partner 20th Century Fox have recently pushed back the release date for Kung Fu Panda 3, changing its schedule from December 23, 2015 to March 18, 2016. Not that anybody will be surprised, but the reason for the delay is Fox not wanting to compete for the box office against the juggernaut that is J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which opens on December 18, 2015.

“Kung Fu Panda is one of DWA’s most treasured properties, and we want to make sure it is positioned where it has the best chance to reach the broadest audience,” Fox president of domestic distribution Chris Aronson told Deadline. “In reviewing the competitive landscape, which we do on an ongoing basis, we feel that the spring availability does just that — gives KFP the maximum amount of air to breathe in order to have a long, successful run.”
