Pixar Planning New Feature From The Superb Teddy Newton And Derek Connolly

It’s Derek Connolly‘s week. Yesterday we were talking about his work on a new version of Flight of the Navigator and that he’d set up another, as yet secret picture at Disney with his Safety Not Guaranteed director Colin Trevorrow – which we now know is called Hank.

Now it gets better still as Variety reveal he’s also at work on a Pixar animated picture with Teddy Newton, director of the sublime Day and Night short and story man on The Incredibles and Iron Giant.

This video from the special edition DVD of Iron Giant goes into Teddy Newton’s special powers a little.

Now more details of the Pixar film are known, but Variety did run this nice little passage, starting with Connolly’s comments on his plush gig in Emeryville:

“It’s totally different, the way they do things up here. You’re here everyday. You don’t go away for three months and come up with a script. You’re involved with a director and it’s very collaborative.”

The Pixar gang also told him “not to dumb it down or treat animation like it’s for kids. “

Lucky bugger.
