Ratatouille Returning to Theatres in 3D?

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:

Ratatouille 3D!

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?

    I didn’t get to see many of Pixar’s movies in theaters, so having them re-released (in 3D or not) would be great.

    I’d love to see things at Remy’s level! Ratatouille seems really cool to see in 3-D, and I’ll probably make the effort to catch it in theatres when it’s out. But I would most like to see WALL-E in 3-D! It has a lot of potential.

    My initial thought was the following: If you are going to 3D a Brad Bird Film, why not do The Incredibles? I’ve warmed up to the idea of Rat in 3D since then, but I still feel Brad Bird’s first Pixar film would have been a better choice.

  4. The Toy Story releases were great because it had been so long, and with a sequel coming up it would be great to jog peoples memories with a fresh viewing with the new 3D technology to add to it. Ratatouille on the other hand was not only not that long ago, but it’s also not one of Pixar’s most popular films either, and there’s no sequels or anything like that. The 3D might add to it, I can see that, but a theatre re-release sounds unneccessary.

  5. I too am excited at the prospect of seeing Ratatouille in 3D.The problem though, is one the YouUnculturedSwine pointed out, Ratatouille, while (in my opinion) on of Pixar’s best films, was one of their weakest in terms of attendance (domestically, anyway, I know it took off really well internationally). I’m not sure how well a re-release will do and it might even make sense for Pixar to do another double-bill with a more popular film to try to raise attendance.

    I think it would make more sense to have another double feature. It doesn’t have to be a Cars/Cars 2, thing. I just think more people would come to see a Rat/Nemo double feature or something like that more so that just seeing a rerelease of just one movie.

    3D WALL•E

    I like the idea of rereleasing Pixar films in theatres, but there’s just no reason to convert them into 3D. Toy Story 1 and 2 were nothing special in 3D and I doubt Ratatouille will be either.

    I think another Pixar movie would be best to release 3D movie Cars such that? that premieres next year 2 and so would make cars and toy story and then another year that draw monsters inc monsters inc 2, my favorite movie monsters inc pixar in probably the best I’d love to see it in 3D, and Wall- and also m not mind going to see her again in 3D.

  11. oh my gawd. this is just awesome. one of my favorite movies are in 3D? nothing starts a day but a good news. 😀

    I’m actually really warming up to Edu_22’s idea. Re-releasing Cars in 3D before Cars 2 to build anticipation would make the most sense. I’m pretty sure the technique worked well for Toy Story 3.

    Does’nt Pixar have anything new coming through? You read about projects being cancelled but I would like to see news on what Pixar do best – new and exciting films.

    To be honest, I’m not very big on the whole 3D scene. I’m a little neutral on the idea. I mean…really the movie on Blu-ray is eye candy enough as it is, but while I think about it, Blu-ray is basically 3D without the headache. HD is technically good enough for the movie, but I would definitely see “Ratatouille” in theaters again just because when I originally saw it in theaters, it was in our dinky little theater in town that had poor audio quality. It would be a thrill for me if I had the second chance of seeing the movie on a bigger and better screen.

    Terrible choice of a movie to bring back! They could do so much better!

    Personally I am exited for this. I will definitely be going to see it. I hope they do WALL•E 3D, and Nemo 3D would be cool also. But what would be absolutely awesome is A Bug’s Life. I doubt they would do it though since it’s so overlooked.

    I like the idea of this awesome 3D film. To be very frank, I’m not very big fan of 3D scenes and be happy
