Now I find this a little unbelieveable, as for it to come out in 2009, Andrew Stanton would have to be working on 2 projects at once, that is, WALL-E and this project. It still might be a Pixar project however, as they have nothing set for release in 2009. Still, the timing doesn’t feel right to me. John Lasseter has only been reported to have aquired the rights to this recently. If it was CG, you need at least 4 or 5 to put it through production. They would only have 2 1/2 years left really. That is of course, unless they didn’t already start on it without the rights with the knowledge that they would aquire the rights.
