A new animated Grinch movie is still headed to the big screen, but the Dr. Seuss favorite will be arriving a bit later than originally planned. Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment have delayed Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas almost a full year. Originally planned for a November 10, 2017 debut, the Grinch movie will now hit the big screen November 9, 2018. It becomes the first major release to claim that weekend.

Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game, upcoming Doctor Strange) voices the title role in the newly-imagined version of the enduring holiday classic. Directed by Pete Candeland and Yarrow Cheney, and adapted from Dr. Seuss’ book by Michael LeSieur, the Grinch movie will be produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri, Janet Healy and Scott Mosier, and executive produced by Audrey Geisel and Chris Renaud.

With the Grinch movie delayed, meanwhile, leaves 20th Century Fox‘s Red Sparrow the only major release planned for November 10, 2017. An adaptation of Jason Matthews’s recently published espionage tale, the film arrives from director Francis Lawrence, best known for directing all three Hunger Games sequels.
