WB Ex­tends An­i­ma­tion Slate to 2018 May 7: Warner Bros., buoyed by the box of­fice smash hit The LEGO Movie, has an­nounced plans to up its an­i­mated fea­tures game, with two as-yet un­ti­tled 3-D projects now slated for Feb. 10, 2017, and Feb. 9, 2018.

While Warner has not con­firmed de­tails of the 2017 and 2018 re­leases, last year the An­i­ma­tion Group re­vealed it was de­vel­op­ing a cou­ple of fea­ture projects. The first, Storks, would have a script by Stoller and be di­rected by Doug Sweet­land, who helmed the Pixar short Presto. The sec­ond, Small­foot, is to be writ­ten by Requa and Ri­carra from an orig­i­nal idea by di­rec­tor Ser­gio Pab­los ( De­spi­ca­ble Me). When these projects were an­nounced in Jan­uary 2013, the films were ten­ta­tively sched­uled for 2015 and 2016, re­spec­tively.
