Movie release dates

The Orlando Sentinel has this story about the planned released dates for several Disney movies. The movies include "Muppets 2", "1952", "Maleficent", and "Pirates of the Caribbean 5".  "Maleficent" is an updated version of "Sleeping Beauty", which will star Angelina Jolie in a story told from the villain's viewpoint.  Another misunderstood villain no doubt - hmm, sounds a little like "Wicked".  As Kermit has eloquently mentioned, it isn't easy being green. Malificent may have some other issue.
The news was part of an omnibus announcement, as Disney also announced "Pirates of the Caribbean 5" will open July 10, 2015. The next "Pirates" will star Johnny Depp with a script by Jeff Nathanson, but no director has been attached.
The 2011 "Muppets" reboot earned a sequel after grossing $158 million at the worldwide box office, giving producers Todd Liberman and David Hoberman a second crack at the iconic characters. James Bobin, who directed that movie, is directing the sequel from a script he wrote with Nick Stoller. Stoller wrote the first film with Jason Segel, who will not reprise his role in this film.
The plot of the movie "1952" isn't publically known yet but, as the article mentions, the script was written by the co-creator of "Lost".
