If Disney (NYSE:DIS) learned something from this year's The Lone Ranger flop, it's apparently this: Take your time producing movies. The company's film studio just pushed out the release of Star Wars: Episode VII to December 2015. That move follows delays in Disney's Pixar schedule that will make 2014 the first time in eight years without a new animated film release from that studio.
In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos talks about what the film delays mean for Disney and for rival DreamWorks Animation (NASDAQ:DWA). He argues that, despite the profit hit that Disney will take, investors and fans alike should applaud these moves that make it more likely that Disney will deliver high-quality products.
