    Johnny Walks!! Yes. Love that guy.

    Oh and then there’s Brad Bird. What else needs to be said? I’m super pumped but at the same time kinda bummed that it’s live action.

    Whatever, a good story is a good story.

    Why is WB a part of this production? Is Brad Bird still under contract to them from his Iron Giant days or something?

    Probably the Reason why Warner Bros is co-financing this film is that it is a very risky
    film for Disney/Pixar to make as it is quite different
    to anything that Pixar have done before. Its Money
    reason really not anything to do with the Company’s
    liking each other.
