Re Disney animation, the L.A. Times had this earlier today:
“Phineas and Ferb” movie, originally slated to be released July 28, 2013, has been pushed back to 2014, the exact date to be determined. “Saving Mr. Banks,” about the origins of Disney’s “Mary Poppins,” is now to be released on Dec. 20, 2013, and Disneynature’s “Bears” is due out April 18, 2014.
Two as-yet-untitled animated films from Disney Animation and Pixar Animation are slated for Nov. 7, 2014, and Nov. 25, 2015, respectively.
While I was running around, a veteran staffer told me a about projects in various stages of work.
There's Big Hero Six and Frozen going into production, and then three projects after that. One of them Ron and John's feature, and two more. Nobody knows what order they'll be in, John Lasseter hasn't decided. But we've got more features in development. Three or four more beyond those three ..."
At which point my informant hurried off and I kept shambling around, telling people about the oncoming ratification vote.
Add On: For those wondering what "TSL" means, it' the anacronym for "The Secret Lab*" -- a visual effects division that was embedded inside Disney Feature Animation from 1999 to 2003. The division created visual effects for a number of live-action films, and then was allowed to die a quiet death.
But the contract under which The Secret Lab operated lives on, and today covers the animation work done at Disney Toon Studios (Glendale) and Walt Disney Animation Studios (Burbank).
The name "The Secret Lab" comes from The Emperor's New Groove. Disney also holds a contract named "The Traveling Lab." (TTL) which mirrors the TSL contract.
* You can find a long-winded account of the beginnings of The Secret Lab here. Some of it's inaccurate, but when Jim H. is telling a good yarn, why would he want to stick to ... you know ... facts?
