Pixar’s reveal of Finding Dory came with the reassuring news that Nemo director Andrew Stanton is on board with the sequel as director. Apparently, though, he won’t be alone in his directing duties. Sharing the work of longtime Pixarian Angus MacLane, Stanton tweeted the following:
From my co-director’s clever Lego "couch" series:
Since joining the studio in 1997, MacLane has gradually risen through the ranks at Pixar. After making his directorial debut with BURN·E, he went on to direct the Toy Story short Small Fry and last year’s Toy Story of Terror. Going by Stanton’s tweet, Finding Dory will be his first feature-length film as co-director. MacLane seems to be a smart choice for the role, given his experience at the studio.
Finding Dory is scheduled for release on June 17, 2016.
