First look at Stanton's John Carter (and what the rest of the Pixar boys are up to)

A couple of Pixar's biggest directors have been shooting movies with actual live human beings in them Brad Bird (director of The Incredibles and Ratatouille) has directed the upcoming fourth Mission Impossible movie, and as of today we get our first look at Andrew Stanton's (director of Finding Nemo and Wall*E) upcoming John Carter feature with Disney (no, it's not about Noah Wyle's character on ER, it's based on the classic sci-fi novel.

Get a load of the trailer here

Looks really fun, and after his aforementioned movies, I have a lot of trust in Stanton. Meanwhile, Pete Docter (Up and Monster's Inc.) is sticking with Pixar for his next movie, though we don't know just what it'll be yet. No word on if Toy Story 3's Lee Unkrich will be helming another Pixar feature, but I'd be surprised if he didn't. John Lasseter, on the other hand, has his hands pretty full overseeing Pixar, Disney feature animation, and consulting on the parks (maybe that's part of why his Cars 2 was not up to standards. Don't spread yourself too thin, John!).
