Cars movie release date pushed back to 2006

The release date from Pixar's new animated movie "Cars" has been moved  from November 4, 2005 to June 9, 2006. Release dates for major international territories have also been set for summer 2006 - France on July 12, Germany and Switzerland on July 13, the UK and Spain on July 14, Japan on July 15 and Italy on September 1.

Walt Disney Studios chairman, Dick Cook said:

"The move from November 2005 to June 2006 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."

Also Pixar's CEO Steve Jobs said:

""Cars" longs to be a summer movie. 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."

The movie centers on speed-obsessed race car Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson), who gets lost on his way to the track. He lands in Radiator Springs, a downtrodden town off fabled Route 66 that has been bypassed by the interstate. There, he learns about what really matters from the cars of the 1950s and '60s.
