Now that it’s out in the open, I guess I can mention an upcoming project that has had me very excited for a couple of months:
Yup, according to Pixar 3D Supervisor, Bob Whitehill, the film’s conversion is currently in development. Brad Bird is even on board to guide the process along.
Hey U Guys has the entire roundtable interview with Whitehill (focusing on Toy Story 3, spoilers), but if you want to hear his thoughts on Ratatouille 3D alone, skip to the seventh minute of the video. For more, keep reading below:
I’m not going to say that I was at the panel seen above, or that they told us to keep the Ratatouille 3D blurb to ourselves. 😉 Instead, here’s what I think about the re-release.
Although it might not seem conventional, Ratatouille is perfectly fit for 3D. If you’re not convinced, check out the kitchen scene. Remy’s scale would allow for great use of depth. You don’t see it in the video, but I also strongly petitioned for a 3D WALL•E…
Could this mean other Pixar 3D re-releases could be on the way? A Cars and/or Monsters, Inc. re-issue would make sense with sequels coming up…With that said, I have no idea when/if we’ll see ‘Rat’ or anything else like it.
How do you feel about Ratatouille 3D?
