Pixar Layoffs Occur Due to “The Good Dinosaur” Delay

Layoffs have occurred at Pixar Studios. The apparent reason due to which this downsizing has taken place is the delay in the movie “The Good Dinosaur”.

An undisclosed number of staff members have been laid off in an unprecedented move at Pixar Studios. The alibi is the procrastination of its upcoming movie titled “The Good Dinosaur”. The only information that was offered was that less than 5% of the more than 1200 working staff at the Studios had been downsized due to necessity. 

The original release date for the movie was late May, 2014. But now it has been postponed to late November, 2015. A full month before the drastic decision was taken, the director Bob Peterson was demoted from his position on the scheme. The re-evaluation and re-adjustment that went along with the change in schedule has caused a slashing of staff. 

The movie “The Good Dinosaur” is based on the conjecture: what would have happened if the asteroid that killed off all the dinosaurs and made way for mammals had never hit the earth? Supposedly, mankind and dinosaurs would have co-existed in peaceful harmony

While the whole project for the movie is undergoing reassembly, a substitute for the director has not been announced yet. The main problem is that now Pixar Studios doesn’t have a movie to show the world in the year 2014. A restructuring is occurring at the Studio premises. That means loss for some and gain for others as is natural in such shakeups.
