Pixar has seen what comes from Dreamworks' shiatshows like Shark Tale. They know better.

Of all people to rework "Herman's Head", I never would have guessed Pixar.

I'd pay to see it

And those films are pure gravy for the talent. No make up, no traveling and no having to deal with the other actors. Dream job

Maybe Pixar will do a spin on Cheers. But the characters are all drinks. OOH!

I'm copyrighting this idea.

Why can't they just go back to real voice actors?  Does anyone really go see an animated feature because it's being voiced by some actor?

Do we really need Chris Pine inflicting his "skills" on animation when there is a far superior professional voice actor out there looking for work?

/Seriously, stunt casting run amok
 
2013-08-09 10:52:37 PM  
I will see this in the theater.  I think voice acting is the best acting.

I can't wait to see Finding Dory. Some actors are really good voice actors. Ellen Degeneres is one of them.

This.

Although "all star voiceover" doesn't hurt Studio Ghibli when Disney wants to bring their shiat over.

/I thought you Pixar drones were all about teh animations or story or whatever crap they are supposedly good at.
 
2013-08-09 10:56:33 PM  
Pixar blew any goodwill with me when they did nothing but sequels and shiatty property development for Disney.
 
2013-08-09 11:23:48 PM  
I'd love to see what they can do with a cast that doesn't include a single famous person.

I'm sick of big-screen animated features being full of voices I can identify immediately. I want to hear the CHARACTER, not the actor, and none of these folks will "do a voice" -- They'll just use their own voice.

Those two were amazing as Batman and Superman. Kevin Conroy imo doesn't get enough work; he has an amazing voice.

This is slightly similar to a 10-minute film shown in the Wonders Of Life pavilion at Epcot called Cranium Command, filled with some of-the-day SNLers...

They could hire better voice actors for these gigs.  People who are good at this and not just a recognizable name.  Maybe some folks like; Billy West, Tom Kane, Tom Kenney, Tara Strong, Kevin Conroy, John DiMaggio, June Foray (still kicking at 96), E. G. Daily, Jim Ward and even Rino Romano would do a great job.  And Pixar had a habit of one or two people from in house who worked on the film in some other capacity.  Brad Bird comes to mind.  Stunt casting doesn't always pan out.
 
2013-08-10 02:19:48 AM  
If I can listen to a voice and say "Hey that's Chris Rock" or "that's the chick that voices the neighbor girl from King of the Hill" then the casting director has completely failed. I'm supposed to be thinking about the dialog and action in the film, not trying to place where I've heard that voice before. There have to be enough under-used and wannabe actors out there to make this possible.

"Disney•Pixar's "Inside Out" takes you to a place that everyone knows, but no one has ever seen: the world inside the human mind."

 Riley, an 11-year-old girl who recently moved with her family to San Francisco,  is not the main character but the setting for the film.

Jeez, was Brave really that much of a disappointment.

Changing a storyline for an animated unrealistic movie due to real life events is courageous?  lol  Really?   FML I'd think that was more on the lines of weeniedom.

I love Pixar.  I've been a huge fan since day one back in '86.  But since Disney bought them out, they've been on a downward spiral in the sheetcan of meh movies.  Cars 2?  Hello?  Don't even get me started on my rag about Ratatouille....

Finding Nemo is one of the best of Pixar's creations and I was really looking forward to its sequel, Finding Dory.  But learning all this b.s. about it?  Ummm  I dunno, I've pretty much lost my gigity over it.

Same reason that studios want name stars in their non animated movies: the belief that those stars will draw in people no matter what the movie is about.

How many movies lately have you seen that had a newcomer or an unknown in a major role? Those movies do exist, but there aren't many of them. Instead some "bankable" star is inserted with little consideration for how appropriate they are for the role.

Animation takes this to the extreme. Few people know the names of good animation directors. And even fewer know the artists who draw the characters or run the computer software. So the people bankrolling animation want big name, easily recognizable stars for the voices. Something to plaster on the ads and film trailers.

And maybe names are important. No big name was attached to any character in "The Nightmare before Christmas", so they plastered Tim Burton's name all over it. Except he wasn't the director, Henry Selick was. Tim was the executive producer, the title usually given to someone who convinced a studio to make the movie, but who may not have had much else to do with it. Tim did write the original story, but that was refined by another writer as well, Michael McDowel. Henry Selick also directed the movie "Coraline", without Tim Burton's name attached. It didn't do nearly as well, although it got good reviews and scores high on IMDB.

Tim Burton's name was attached to coraline. I just don't think that film was very marketable.

Came here to say this.

Here are two arguments to support that, that if someone in the busines is reading, should convince them:

1) HIRING STARS DO NOT DRAW A CROWD. NO ONE GOES JUST BECAUSE DANE COOK IS DOING THE VOICE.

2) IT WOULD SAVE AT LEAST 75% OF THE COST. YOU CAN PAY A VOICEACTOR EXTREMELY WELL, AND IT WOULD STILL BE A FRACTION OF PAYING A "STAR" TO DO IT.

I used to be really excited by the upcoming Pixar announcements. But for the past few years? Meh.

Maybe I'm just getting too old for animation.

Really looking forward to Pixar's Dios de los Meuertos film. They got off to a rocky start when Disney tried to copyright the term 'Dios de los Muertos' in an effort to control any and all marketing of sugar skulls and possible look-alike merchandise once the film was released. Luckily, the public outcry was nearly unanimous that Disney had no basis of a claim to a holiday and tradition that pre-dates even Walt.
