I find it kind of odd having Pixar do it, but maybe it will be that much better. So does this mean Pixar is getting into live action? I'm mixed on that too, but I would not be surprised if after seeing this I'm sold. We'll see.
Pixar isn't doing it. Andrew Stanton is directing the film for Disney. It's almost like Pixar is loaning Stanton for this project. CG effects are being done by ILM. I know people say that this is wrong and that its all Pixar and blah blah blah, but it's not going to be billed as a Pixar film, which is what I mean. So yes, people from Pixar are working on it, but its not a Pixar film. That would be like saying that Walt Disney made The Wizard of Oz because MGM brought him in and took suggestions from him.
As for the story content, while yes, it has a lot of sex and violence, it would not be that hard to keep the spirit of the story and lessen the more graphic parts. Tarzan is actually the same way. I don't get why so many people aren't entertained unless someone is in bed with someone else or someone graphically kills someone else. I don't get it.
I agree. I haven't read the stories like some of the other members here, so I don't know for sure, but wouldn't it be possible for Disney to adapt the story without sex and without a ton of violence? And remember, we are living in an era where it is acceptable to have a PG-13 Disney film due to violence, so as long as they keep the violence PG-13 and the sex PG, then its fine. Although, like Pirates, this could be the film that pushes the boundaries even further.
