British animated feature Ron’s Gone Wrong has been moved by Disney again, to a later 2021 date.
Locksmith Animation has been hard at work on its first animated movie, Ron’s Gone Wrong, for a good year or two so far. The film was to be part of a three picture deal with 20th Century Fox, a deal that was then ended prematurely courtesy of Disney’s takeover of the studio.
That said, Disney was keeping the commitment to release the first of the three pictures, and had originally announced a release date for the movie of November 6th 2020. Then, in a release date jiggle that took place at the end of 2019, the studio then decided to push the film into 2021, with a February 26th 2021 date announced. And now, it’s been put back again. The latest release date for the movie now sits at April 23rd 2021. We’re very much looking forward to seeing the film.
Locksmith is a new-ish animation studio based in London, headed up by Sarah Smith and Julie Lockhart (both Aardman alumni). It opened its doors in 2014, and it’s a high-end computer animation studio – arguably the only one of its kind in the UK – committed to making family movies.
It’s got a slate of several films it’s looking to make, and Warner Bros is its new studio partner. As we hear more, we’ll let you know…
