Why do you think the release date of Httyd 3 was pushed a year?

 I saw on another topic that Httyd 3 was pushed to 2017. Why? Did they make a mistake? Do they need more time then needed? Movies don't just push their release date a year for no good reason...what's your opinion? I am patient when it comes to movies, but on that topic, it said Disney was bullying Dreamworks. Is that why?

Pixar scheduled another movie to be released in the same month as HTTYD3, and while HTTYD is a popular franchise, if kids had to pick a movie to see that month, they'd most of the time go with a Disney movie. Due to their new software, Dreamworks can make animated movies much faster, so they would be finished by that date, but they can't have their movie be released the same month a Disney movie does, especially if it was Finding Dory, which I believe that's what's going to be released?

Probaly because making

Probaly because making detailed animated movies is very difficult and takes around 3 years at best...

Disney is not bullying dreamworks. That is just unrealistic. The post you saw was a disscusion post, which we all decided that there was no bullying.

Hi

 Oh...yeah, Dreamworks makes good quality movies really quickly. They are really good at making 2's (Which in my opinion, Disney has a hard time at that). Btw, I have heard of Finding Dory, what is it about? Is it like Finding Nemo? Too bad Dreamworks pushed Httyd 3 a year! I couldn't wait to see the next one! Although (Spoilers!) I heard they will probably end it telling why there are no more dragons today or ending it seperating Hiccup and Toothless...

They've actually confirmed it will explain why the dragons aren't on Berk anymore. While upsetting, I'm also excited to see how they handle it.

 

And actually, they created a new animation program while working on HTTYD2, which made it so much easier to animate, takes much less time as well.

 

Unfortunately, I have no idea what Finding Dory is about, though it will probably be about finding out something about Dory's memories or something like that. 

I actually heard something about Toy Story 4 (boooooooo) and that it may have been announced to be released close to HTTYD3's new release date, possibly making them push it back even further. It may not be Toy Story 4, but it is something close to HTTYD3's new release. So yes, you could actually say Disney is bullying Dreamworks a bit, releasing sequels to popular movies so close to HTTYD3's release.

Hi

 Well for Pete's sake! Boy! This must be one big movie is Disney is attempting to try to push Httyd 3 even further! Or maybe they're competing with each other. Or maybe Disney has good movies, but doesn't want any movies from other companies to come out...Well, I know one thing, they are not doing a big attempt to push Kund fu Panda 3 further. Btw, I heard Kung fu Panda 3 has somethin' to do with Po meeting his long lost father, any relations?
Httyd 2-Hiccup meets his long lost mother

Kung fu Panda 3-Po is going to probably find out his father is still alive

They probably took the ideas from each other. :)

I actually haven't been keeping up with kung fu panda, lol. Eh, I don't know, even if they are the same type of main story, finding a lost parent, it still works for both movies very well.

Hi

 Yeah...I just hope because Dreamworks just announced a new date for Httyd 3, Disney doesn't release another movie then too...

Hi

 Wait...nevermind. I see now why they changed it. I was looking up on what Finding Dory is about and I saw the release date to be June 17, 2016 which is around the time Httyd 3 comes out...

Actually, that is the exact same day that HTTYD3 was scheduled to be released.

Hey, eh, you seem to... not answer me. A while ago I asked you about your Stormcutter, as I have one named OceanBreeze witht he exact same color scheme. Why is that? Is it a coincidence? :/

There was a reason behind the

There was a reason behind the push back, a completely logical one. It's that they need three years to make the script and animation and such for the movie as great as possible. Two years just isn't enough time to do that.
