Variety on the Problems of 3-D Animation for Oscars in 2009

by on December 11, 2008

Variety has examined some of the problems that may result from the many animated movies being released in 2009 which will have 3-D versions. Specifically, the limited ability to watch 3-D movies nationwide might mean that members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will not be able to see an animated movie in 3-D. Alternately, there is also no guarantee that the filmmakers would want members of the Academy to see the movie in 3-D vs. 2-D. The article quotes Bruce Davis, executive director of the Academy, and John Lasseter, chief creative officer of Disney and avowed 3-D buff.

The article also lists the 3-D movies coming out from major studios in 2009: Up (Pixar), Monsters vs. Aliens (DreamWorks Animation), Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (Sony Pictures Animation), Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (Fox/Blue Sky), and Coraline (Laika).
