Pixar and Disney today announced that they are moving the release date of “Cars” to June 9, 2006 from November 2005. “Cars longs to be a summer movie,” said Pixar (and Apple) CEO Steve Jobs. “We plan to finish Cars on its original schedule, and look forward to Cars and our future films benefiting by summer theatrical releases and holiday DVD releases.” Commenting on the announcement, Dick Cook, chairman of Walt Disney Studios, said, “The move… makes perfect sense. Cars is the quintessential summer film for audiences of all ages. It has a fantastic story full of action, adventure, comedy, heartfelt emotion with cutting edge animation and incredible voice talent. In the vein of Finding Nemo, we feel the movie will have legs throughout summer and beyond.”
