Andrew Stanton Will Direct Finding Nemo 2

Finding NemoThe great animated director Andrew Stanton, who botched Disney’s John Carter is coming back home. The Wall-E, A Bug’s Life, and Finding Nemo Director is jumping back in the water with Finding Nemo 2.


Yes, he’s now officially come aboard the Finding Nemo sequel and has a concept the studio loves. Pixar continues to not be helpful on this, as they don’t comment on development. It’s understandable why Disney and Pixar would be excited by this. Stanton won two Oscars for his animation work on Wall-E and Finding Nemo. That original 2003′s fish tale’s $867.9 million worldwide gross makes it still Pixar’s second highest grossing film, and the third biggest Disney animated film release ever. And that comes before Finding Nemois re-released in 3D in September.


With his Pixar brother Brad Bird exceeding all expectations in the franchise-best Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (and plans to follow it up with another major live-action film), it’s a bit of a shame that Stanton, the master behind Wall-E, didn’t find similar success in his live-action debut. No matter now, Finding Nemo 2 will be a smash and he will soon be back on top. The film should be ready for release in late 2014.
