I don't even like Cars but hopefully this doesn't diminish the world created in the film.

I was able to get a look at some of the visual development for the next group of Toon Disney features (waay different than Tinkerbell) and my first reaction was: "That's going to make the Mouse a lot of money!" Because it is a real commercial property.

There's also a new c.g.i series of features at Diz Toons -- apart from the Tinkerbells -- in early development. Stories being scripted, characters being developed. (New characters, but cousins of other creations in the Disney empire).

Disney Toons does whole series of features. So it's not like they have one Planes or one Tinkerbell.

The fourth Tinkerbell video feature is well into boarding, and the first feature of the new series is getting put up on story-reels, with a screening for John Lasseter sooner rather than later. (I'm hearing October).

The "Planes" films are being done with the blessing of Pixar and the supervision of Lasseter. They take place in a world with the Cars world, if you remember there are other vehicles in the film. This is their story. A story for boys (Think of this as the boys version of Tinker Bell). And if it's successful (most likely) then get ready for Ships, Trains and other characters in this world.

I've heard a lot of people venting about this series and many have felt as this as something along the lines of a desecration of the Lamp's label. But this series is something that has been in the planning for a couple years. As the Tink series was in full production, the powers that be realized that they had to address a couple of things. First, the focus on characters and issues that play primarily to girls/women. Second, the missed opportunity to maximize boys obsession with the "Cars" franchise. This gave John and the crew over at the Toon Studios the opportunity to work more in the world of Cars and focus on that male demographic.

Unlike the Disney Fairies, this is a series that has had Lasseter's blessing from the get go. Tink was a series that he was given with the expectation of delivering, which he has in spades. This series, which storyboard artists will begin working on a second draft of the film in November after John's note are analyzed, will have even more focus than Fairies. The film is currently set for a late 2011/early 2012 release if everything continues running smoothly. Should this film be successful, the crew has plans to work on many of the other humanized vehicles of this world: Trains, Boats, ect. He's done a great job of turning the DVD series into a credible and profitable franchise, now he's got the opportunity to focus on expanding and growing the offerings of this division.

The "Planes" characters are new and will be in the world of Cars or one like it. The Cars characters are not a part of it. This isn't a sequel that someone else is doing. And Lasseter is handling the film. No one else will be doing it. The original guy that made Cars 1 & 2 will be doing it so I don't think you'll have to worry about the content not being up to Pixar's standards.

It seems that Disney is trying to animate every mechanical vehicle than has been conceived. Can "Trains" really be that far behind? Scratch that. Forget you ever heard me say that. Hmmm.

And though the news has been out and about on the internets for a while now, and though I've been looking at artwork for the movie for at least a year, the Mouse has finally announced this. The designs for the new picture are beguiling. This item from Disney Toons will end up making a lot of money, both in merchandise and DVD sales.

Is it only me that got a little sad that even DisneyToon Studios has gone all Pixar for their upcoming projects? It's like WDAS and its legacy is dying inside the company little by little...


The 2nd sentence is something that I've definitely thought of...hence any "conspiracy theory" mentions that I've made. But that's an interesting point about DisneyToon...I mean, we don't know what they have in mind post-Tinker Bell besides Planes.

Um, I know Pixar has been perfect so far, but I really worry that that may end this decade. They suddenly got sequel happy and now this?! I trust Pixar, but right now it's turning into an uneasy trust. DTV films have never been THAT good. A few have been ok, fun to watch, but never "Beauty and the Beat," "Lion King," Toy Story," or "Up" good.

I worry.

Cars wasn't as good as any of those films either. Maybe they feel more comfortable making a DTV line with that idea than any other.

For a while we've been talking about the possibility of a conspiracy theory against WDAS.... what if it's the opposite! (this is me just rambling, but something i've thought about.)

I mean, it seems that Pixar is starting to travel a path that was already tread by WDAS and has lead to failure.

all in all, isn't WDAS the only studio working on original and new ideas compared to Dreamworks and Pixar?

Ok, so I guess I did use the cream of the cream of the crop as my example. Let me try again. I have yet to see any DTV films as good as "Great Mouse Detective," "Cars," "Fox and the Hound," "A Bug's Life," or "Dumbo." Better? :P

Anyway, what a frightening reality, Disney is actually working on more original ideas right now then Pixar? Maybe Lassiter is not watching Pixar as closely anymore in favor of the Mouse House? Maybe Pixar has pride issues and wants to show that they can do what others have failed to do with too many sequels and DTV films? When your 11 for 11, it could be easy to get a big head? I'd love nothing more then for them to kill at this and be amazing. It's just, I don't have much faith in the format they want to use.

Animating the inanimate is what Pixar has been doing from the start. all the way back to Luxo Jr and various commercials. All that matters is the execution. That being said I think this sort of thing mainly only works in short form, not in full length movies or tv series. the longer their on screen the harder it is to justify the logic of the world their living in.

I wonder how they will make Trains, without inviting comparisons to Thomas the Tank Engine? Needless to say, it will be very difficult.

at this rate they might as well merge the 3 ideas and call it Pixar's Planes, Trains and Automobiles :P

Though that title has been used in a comedy already in a movie totatlly unrelated to Disney :lol:

Its not even being made by pixar guys, not even their Canadian studio as speculated (what the heck are they up to anyway, have they been doing nothing all this time?).

This is the cars equivalent of the Buzz Lightyear series basically. it'll probably be a hit with kids, but pixar and/or disney fans shouldn't feel obligated to watch it. Like it or hate it, its not going to matter much in the long run other than give them more money to produce more original stuff.

What are you talking about? It was known from the beginning, that Planes is the follow-up project of the Toon Studios, after the Tinkerbell series is done.

Before long, it'll be followed by yet another franchise: Trains.

Then we'll have ourselves Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. :lol:

I thought that was just a rumor, not officially confirmed.
