Who Will Direct Pixar's 'Cars 3' and 'Incredibles 2'?

23 February 2016 3:54 PM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

Two upcoming films on Pixar's slate were met with two very different reactions when they were announced. 

First up is a sequel to 2004's The Incredibles. Just about everyone, myself included, wanted this to happen, and was happy to hear Pixar was finally moving forward with it; however, the even better news was that the original film's writer/director, Brad Bird, would be returning to script the flick. Now I'm happy to tell you what we all assumed (hoped?): Bird will also be directing!

The other upcoming sequel is Cars 3. If you're like me, as any reasonable person should be, you're a bit surprised. After all, the first Cars film didn't blow up the box office, at least not by Pixar standards, and the second fared only a little better (again by Pixar standards).

At any rate, it was a real Wtf!? moment, but, be that as it may, »

It’s safe to say […]

"Monsters University" Helmer Tackles "Cars 3"

23 February 2016 6:52 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Monsters University" director Dan Scanlon has come onboard to take the helm of a third movie in the "Cars" franchise at Disney and Pixar according to Pixar Planet.

The site noticed a recent official blog post which lists Scanlon as co-director on the film, but there's no other name listed. No formal announcement about Scanlon being on the project has been made by the studio.

Despite the critical drubbing and soft box-office of the first two films, the "Cars" franchise has been a massive success for Disney in terms of tie-in merchandising, the first film alone raking in $10 billion in merchandise sales in the first five years since its release.

John Lasseter and Joe Ranft helmed the first, Lasseter and Brad Lewis helmed the second. The third is currently targeting a June 16th 2017 release. »
