Toy Story 3 And Cars 2 Among New Disney Animation Plans

by | 09 April 2008

Sequels to Toy Story 2 and Cars are among the plans for Disney's roster of animated movies over the next four years, it has been confirmed.

The so-called animation slate was unveiled at a press conference in New York on Tuesday by Disney chairman Dick Cook and Pixar head John Lasseter with the revelation that of the 14 movies planned, only one will be in Disney's traditional 2D style of animation, the rest being presented in digital 3D.

The Princess and the Frog, a Christmas 2009 release presenting a modern twist on The Frog Prince, will be Disney's first traditionally-animated film since Home on the Range with the remainder of releases using the computer-generated effects employed by the likes of Ratatouille and Cars.

Among the upcoming plans are the septuagenarian adventure Up, set for a July 2009 release in the UK, the third instalment in the Toy Story franchise - rumoured to feature Woody and Buzz Lightyear's owner Andy heading off to college - a CGI take on Rapunzel and The Bear and the Bow, a Christmas 2011 movie set in "mythic Scotland".
