The rest of me is... Irish...

Last name's dead giveaway!

if we want to talk about race and stuff lets go to the thread about race we dont wanna get this one closed

It's okay to talk about race so long as one doesn't get racist. :)

But yes, I think we should move back on-topic. Sorry for the deviation. :)

I didn't know they did contracts.


What? But I thought she was still working at Pixar. :S Now I'm confused.

I just really want to know if she actually left or not. At this point I'm starting to get really annoyed at the lack of information we have regarding this subject, not to mention Brave has been the only Pixar film that I've been looking forward to since the first day that it was announced. It's already disappointing enough that Chapman won't be directing anymore, but the fact that we've heared absolutely NOTHING regarding her status at Pixar is frustrating to me even more. :\

It would be great for them to tell us, but I get this bad feeling that we'll never ever know.

Most likely she is leaving, and they are just negotiating the terms. She'll probably sign a non-disclosure agreement (meaning she will never ever talk publicly about what happened, so we will never know how she got booted officially), and she'll get paid lots of money, then she'll move on to another studio soon.
I think my posts will just look better if I put a signature in.

If she is leaving Pixar, does anyone think she'll go back to DreamWorks? It was where she directed her first film (and if she's leaving Pixar I doubt she'd return to Disney).

darn, I was so disappointed when she was removed as director, but her still working at the studio softened the blow. There goes my dream of Brenda directing her own fairytale...

Well that just blows. :( It completely shattered my idealistic image of Pixar too (which might actually be a good thing though).

I have mixed feelings about this right now. I don't know whether to be excited for the movie or be extremely disappointed that Chapman isn't at Pixar anymore.

^I agree with that. I still love PIXAR, but after all the storyboarding she did on wonderful Disney films, and directing the Prince of Egypt at DW, this really hurts.

it was a pitty that Brenda left the project, but I am so glad that a genious like Mark Andrews takes the lead of it,,,,,, if you look closely to the credits of the last pixar films, you will realize that Andrews has been involved as the story supervisor (Ratatouille) in some films, and he is also a writing John Carter with Andrew Stanton, he is the second unit director of that film

Since Brenda Chapman would have been Pixar's first female director, much controversy came about when it was declared she would not direct "Brave" anymore, people claimed that Pixar was making decisions out of sexist thoughts. Of course I completely disagree, here is what I wrote in my blog: "This switch in directors that took place in mid-production caused much controversy against Pixar with claims of sexism. My opinion? Of course I do not know the reasons behind Pixar’s change in plans, but I do know one thing: Pixar is most certainly not sexist. Pixar has proven themselves to be wholesome, and respectful towards sexes and different races alike. Very few know what goes on inside the great minds of the big wigs in charge at Pixar who made this change, but the company, itself have proven themselves to not be sexist or racist."

Lauren Faust’s (developer and creative director of My Little Ponies: Friendship is Magic) recently wrote a deviantART journal entitled ‘Brenda Chapman, Brave and women in animation’, in which she expressed her disappointment upon hearing of Brenda Chapman’s departure from the director role of the upcoming Pixar film Brave. You can read my reply to her journal in the link below, but I just want to point out that in my comment, I mention that there are many possible reasons for Brenda's sudden departure. Sexism could be one of them. She could've honestly chosen to relinquish control of the project, or maybe she was under a 'gag order' from Pixar. We may never know. The biggest casualty though, is as another reader summed up:

KittMouri wrote:The worst is that this was her original idea and concept. How could they fire her from what is essentially her "brain child"? That, in itself, is a tragedy.


And in this respect, I wholeheartedly agree.
