HAPPILY EVER AFTER? Disney announced a bunch of title shifts and release dates today, and two are of particular note--the sequel to The Muppets is now formally titled Muppets Most Wanted, and will release March 21, 2014, apparently looking to the Spring Break release window that was very profitable for The Croods this year. (I wouldn't be shocked to see a teaser attached to Monsters University.) Into The Woods is also formally dated for Christmas Day, 2014, giving Disney an interesting one-two punch in December 2014 of the Brad Bird/Damon Lindelof/George Clooney Tomorrowland and ITW two weeks later. More oddly, they've also announced that Planes, this summer's spinoff of Cars, will get a sequel quickly--next summer, in fact.
