Awesome Pixar News Bundle!
A lot of awesome new things have been going on in the Pixar world lately (as always). Read below to find out what the awesome new things are.
-I sometimes like to save the best for last, but this was too exciting to hold off until the end. OK, here it goes. The first teaser trailer for Cars 2 has been released on the Internet! Woo Hoo! It was assumed that it would be coming for the first time on the DVD/Blu-Ray for TS3, but it came two weeks early! While I'm on the subject of Cars 2, the official website now includes the teaser trailer and some cool concept art of the film, including the art seen above and below. Also, director Brad Lewis has now been made co-director, while former co-director John Lasseter takes his spot as director. This is pretty exciting for me because I am a huge fan of John and he hasn't directed a film since the first Cars. Wow, there sure has been a lot of news about Cars 2 lately. The new trailer, Michael Giacchino is composing, John Lasseter directing...what's next? They may be having a few difficulties with the film as has been rumored, but I totally doubt Pixar will make a bad movie! I have complete faith in Pixar, and they would definitely not screw up after 11 hits! A bad Pixar movie...there is NO SUCH THING!!!
-The director has also been changed for another upcoming Pixar movie. Brenda Chapman is no longer directing Brave. However, she is not leaving Pixar, as previously assumed. Mark Andrews will be replacing her as director. This is a bit of a shocker. Brenda Chapman was going to be Pixar's first female director, and she came up with the story for Brave herself. But I'm sure whatever it is they're doing at Pixar, it's for the best.
-Just a quick announcement, The Incredibles is coming to Blu-Ray high definition next spring!
