Paper Beats Pixels For Pixar Info - So Much New News

I recently linked to an article on the Time website called Why Pixar is Better. Now, the industrious uberfans at JV Pixar News have found out from the similarly keen and sharp Upcoming Pixar that the print version of the piece contains a lot more information. Superb.

There is information on Wall-E, Toy Story 3 and Up. Here's a snippet of each.

On Wall-E: Those who remember the 1931 Charlie Chaplin film [City Lights], about a blind girl wooed by a tramp she mistakenly believes is a rich man, can transpose the story to a lonely planet and guess from there.

On Toy Story 3: "We got an idea we thought would be really great." Lee Unkrich will be THE director....he co-directed Toy Story 2 and Finding Nemo. He says, "We're just starting to write the story"....and confides, "I wake up evey morning hoping for a eureka moment.

On Up: Pete Docter and co-director Bob Peterson are preparing this 'coming-of-old-age story' about a seventysomething guy who lives in a house that "looks like your grand-parents' house smelled." He befriends a clueless young Wilderness Ranger and gets into lots of alter kocker altercations. Says Pixar: "Our hero travels the globe, fights beasts and villains and eats dinner at 3:30 in the afternoon."
