CricInfo title Disney’s Pixar and Disney Pixar: Is we still a Disney film?
article Disney has a number of movies coming out in 2017, including a new live-action film, The Lion King 2, and a live-Action TV series, Star Wars Rebels.
But we’re not exactly in a full Disney movie anytime soon.
Disney CEO Bob Iger says that the studio’s plans to release a full-length animated film are in limbo.
“Right now, we’re just waiting to see if we get the funding,” Iger told the Los Angeles Times in an interview last week.
“We’re waiting to get the studio to finish the film, and then we’ll figure out whether we want to continue with the films.”
Iger added that he and the rest of the Disney leadership team would have to “figure out a way to release the films,” but that they weren’t considering a theatrical release.
“I’m not sure if we’ll get to the point where we’re doing that, and I’m not even sure if it’s going to happen this year,” Igers said.
“We’ve got a long way to go,” he added.
Iger also said that the upcoming animated feature film would be the last of a trilogy.
“If we had a whole film series, we would have done it before,” Iged said.
But he also told the Times that he expects that Pixar’s next film will be a live action feature.
“It’s definitely going to be live action,” Iber said.
“That’s what we’re going to do.
There’s going be a lot of live action.”
Pixar is also developing a new feature film based on the first animated feature, Toy Story, and is set to begin shooting that film in 2017.
Iger has previously indicated that the company is still looking to bring a live movie to theaters in 2018, and that the goal is to release it by the end of the year.
“There’s a lot more things we’re working on, but we’re still doing it,” Igs said.
The studio is currently developing an animated film for the 2018 holiday season.
