The studio announced the delay in a press release yesterday.
“The weather in Japan has been extremely harsh this week,” Universal said.
“Due to the severe weather, we are postponing the release of the Serenity and Maleficent sequels.”
In addition to the delay, Universal also announced the cancellation of the “The Princess Bride” remake and the release date for the “Serenities” sequel, as well as the cancellation and rerelease of “Rising Sun” and “Sailor Moon: Princess of the Sun.”
Universal Studios Tokyo said last week that “Serena” will be delayed again for the winter.
