Studio adds 'Phineas and Ferb' to schedule

Now that it’s wrangled the budget of Jerry Bruckheimer’s “The Lone Ranger,” Disney has dated the Johnny Depp starrer for May 31, 2013 — a lead berth in which the pic will kick off that summer for the Mouse.

Delays in production forced Disney to move the Gore Verbinski-helmed release, which had originally been skedded for Dec. 21, 2012.

As a result, Marvel’s “Thor 2,” is shifting to the fall and will now bow Nov. 15, 2013.

Disney has also found a home on its sked for the “Phineas and Ferb” movie: July 26, 2013, a prime summer spot for the pic, based on the popular animated Disney Channel series.
