That project has now been shunted aside though it will, I’m sure, will find […]

Tangled Getting A Spin-Off Short Film

Anything Pixar can do, Disney can do… too. As with the Toy Story Shorts and Cars Toons, there’s to be a spin-off short film that revisits the world of Tangled.

Nathan Greno, Byron Howard And Glen Keane Talk To Me About Tangled

I recently took part in a virtual roundtable with Glen Keane, long time Disney animator and key player in Tangled, the House of Mouse’s latest feature length toon.
