Elle’s latest animated movie, Leap! (formerly known as Ballerina) has a new release date… again. It had been moved to Labor Day weekend a while ago, and Deadline has just posted that it is now premiering on August 25 instead.

The Weinstein Co.’s animated feature, Leap! is changing dates yet again — this time moving up by five days to August 25. In this end-of-summer slot, the company still has horror film Polaroid for the weekend (which is likely to move now) as well as Tulip Fever (which also has jogged around the release schedule). Tulip Fever, which stars Academy Award winners Alicia Vikander, Judi Dench and Christoph Waltz, is getting a platform release.

Leap! not only has changed dates three times (the last time about four months ago), but the was re-voiced over the past few months and also put together a new soundtrack.

Along with music from Demi Lovato and Sia, the film also features new music from one of its stars, Carly Rae Jepsen. In addition to her already-released single “Cut to the Feeling,” the film will also features another new song from the “Call Me Maybe” singer titled “Runaways.”

“Our test screenings have been phenomenal – it was already great with Elle Fanning and Mel Brooks, but after adding Kate McKinnon and Nat Wolff, the scores went absolutely through the roof,” TWC Co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein said in a statement. “Carly Rae Jepsen’s song, ‘Cut to the Feeling,’ is going to be one of the top five songs of the summer, and we have incredible word-of-mouth, plus a partnership with Nickelodeon on the movie. We’re super excited about this.”

The song was released on May 26 digitally and didn’t crack the Billboard Hot 100 when it was released.
