I buzzed through the hat building in the A.M., and the CGI crew is working six-day weeks on Tangled but happy to have jobs (and overtime). "We're employed, and that's good" ...
Meantime, Winnie the Pooh is in the last couple of months of animation, after which:
"A new hand-drawn project called [X] has been greenlit for development. It's the only thing on the traditional side right now, so hopefully it will stay on track ..."
A story person informed me that Richard Ross, the production honcho across Riverside Drive on the Main Lot, is looking at animated projects in early development as they progress and has said: "If I don't like something at its first stages, I usually don't start liking it more after more development ..."
(Now. How true the Ross quote is, or how accurate, I cannot say. But I know it sure as hell sounds like a studio head's words. But you can judge for yourself.)
