Leading up to next year’s Christmas, the Mouse has bumped up George Clooney sci-fi pic “Tomorrowland” to Dec. 12 in wide release, with “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” now slated to bow Oct. 10, 2014.

Also in 2014, Disney Animation will release a sequel to “Planes,” called “Fire and Rescue,” on July 18, followed a month later by DreamWorks’ Lasse Hallstrom-directed “The Hundred-Foot Journey.” The studio’s “Muppets” sequel, which is dated for March 21, is now titled “Muppets Most Wanted.”

Into the Woods,” which stars Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt, is directed by Rob Marshall, based on the Tony-winning tuner by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim. Pic follows a baker and his wife who, while fighting to break a witches curse, encounter several well-known fairy tale characters.

This year, Disney has added a limited engagement for “Saving Mr. Banks,” about the making of “Mary Poppins,” on Dec. 13. The film expands wide Dec. 20 as planned previously.
