Universal Pictures has postponed the theatrical release for the Illumination film Migration from 30 June 2023 to 22 December 2023.
Migration was set to open on its prior date against Disney’s Indiana Jones 5. On its new opening weekend, it will open against titles including Disney’s Star Wars: Rogue Squadron and an untitled Star Trek sequel from Paramount.
According to Deadline, Migration is billed as a modern-day comedy following a family of ducks who convince their overprotective father to go on the vacation of a lifetime as they attempt to migrate from New England, through New York City, and ultimately down to the Bahamas.
Oscar nominee Benjamin Renner (Ernest et Célestine) is directing the film from an original screenplay by Mike White (School of Rock, The White Lotus). Illumination founder Chris Meledandri is serving as producer.
