What would have been his directorial debut is now officially off of Pixar’s schedule, but there’s life beyond Newt. In a recent interview, Rydstrom tells the San Francisco Chronicle what he’s been up to.
Beginning next weekend, you can see his work in the English dub of Studio Ghibli’s Tales from Earthsea. Although Rydstrom was new at directing actors (his debut short, Lifted, was dialogue free), the heavy sound design work was pleasantly familiar.
So what’s next? All we know is that his upcoming project is "really fun." Could it be a Pixar film? We think so. "I wish I could tell you what it was, but it hasn’t been announced," teased Rydstrom.
You can catch Tales of Earthsea in select US theatres on August 13th.
Disclaimer: I am so sorry for the terrible pun in the title.
