'Tangled' Directors Reunite For New Disney Film
Nathan Greno and Byron Howard, the directors of Tangled, revealed that they will reunite for a new animated Disney feature. Digital Spy spoke to Byron Howard who mentioned that he and Greno starting pitching ideas to John Lasseter, chief creative officer at Walt Disney Animation Studios, during the making of Tangled.
“We actually love working together. When you work on these films for so long and so intensely, when you get to the end of them suddenly there’s nothing to do,” Howard said. “Once you’re done with the film it’s almost like empty nest syndrome, your kid has moved out of the house.
“You see directors spin you a year, year-and-a-half looking for the next project to do. About six months ago Nathan and I said, ‘Let’s not do that, let’s make sure we have something cooking.’ We pitched six ideas to John Lasseter and he said, ‘This idea is great, this idea is great. What if you mushed them together?’”
“The thing it will share with Tangled is it’ll have great action, memorable characters and emotion in a world you’ve never seen before,” he said of the untitled action-adventure movie.
Howard added that the project will be “really wild, like nobody’s ever seen before”.
