Chris Sanders Loses Grip on "American Dog"
A shocking report has come from Disney watcher Jim Hill Media concerning Walt Disney Feature Animation's new project of "American Dog (aka Bolt)." The site reveals that the studio's execs John Lasseter and Ed Catmull have both fixed their mind to pull director Chris Sanders off of the flick, which was slated for a summer 2008 release.
The reason behind the decision is said to be due to the pair's conclusion to bring WDFA back to its roots as a "traditional" animation company exclusively which was against Sanders' intention to develop "Dog" as a CG animated film. Hill observed that even though the twosome's plan has not yet been "entirely embraced" by Disney CEO Robert Iger, Sanders' version of the flick has positively been put to sleep as a consequence.
With this result, "Meet the Robinsons" will likely be the last CG picture coming from the studio as the full responsibility to make computer-animated movies for Disney will be given to Pixar in turn. Meanwhile, WDFA itself is now taking full concentration to develop both "Rapunzel" and "The Frog Princess" in 2-D.
