Pixar News Update!

Some good news and some bad news coming out from Pixar.  Let's lead with the bad news.  Brenda Chapman was supposed to be Pixar's first female director on a movie that featured a female lead.  But now, only Brave will have a female lead in Merida as Chapman has stepped aside and now Mark Andrews will take over.  I had hoped this wasn't true but there you go.  There are so few female directors out there and especially those in the animation industry.  I hope the movie doesn't suffer for it but it's highly unlikely.  Pixar has been in this spot before with Toy Story 2 and Ratatouille and the changes just made the movie that much better.  We'll see you in your next project, Ms. Chapman.

First the Cars 2 teaser trailer was just released and now some gorgeous concept artwork to confirm that the story indeed is taking place on the international circuit.  Empire Online has the first images.  They also report that the animated short preceding the film might have Toy Story characters.  Might we see Woody and Buzz Lightyear again?
