We first learned of Pixar’s plans to convert Ratatouille to 3D all the way back in 2010, but is it any closer to hitting theaters?
Pixar’s director of 3D production Josh Hollander gave some vague updates, via Screen Daily:
We have a version of Ratatouille, which works really well in 3D and we’re trying to figure out exactly what the release strategy for that will be.
So it sounds like it’s done and it’s just a matter of when, but even though it’s been in the works for a few years now, they seem like they are more actively pursuing a different 3D conversion, though he gives no timeframes for this one either:
Right now we’re working on The Incredibles, which is a lot of fun in 3D. I’m not sure what the release strategy for it will be.
It’s been an interesting challenge to work on technology because – while the film was released 10 years ago – the technology is even older as it took four years to make.
They must be on their way soon, though, especially given how successful Disney re-releases have proven to be in the past few years.
