Disney/Pixar’s Newt Gets Canned

Pixar can do no wrong, right? Just look at their track record; but now the cracks in their armour are beginning to show. Their latest orignal IP, Newt has been cancelled, and a big majority of their production releases for the next couple of years are now largely focussed on sequels. Is this pressure from Disney? Animation, specifically CG animation, is always years in development from concept to release, so a lot of thought is put into each piece of work. Has Pixar gotten too big? This news, coupled with their first real-life feature film (allegedly), John Carpenter of Mars, to be released in 2012, means Pixar is repeating Disney’s history, or they will once again prove they’re leaps and bounds ahead of anyone else in the industry. You know what? It’ll probably be the latter.
