Andrew Stanton will direct the ‘Finding Nemo’ sequel!


It’s clear that Pixar as a company is now deep into making franchises out of their biggest hits, and as long as we get more ‘Toy Story’ franchises and less ‘Cars’ ones, you won’t hear me complaining much. I’ll admit that I need to revisit ‘Finding Nemo’, and apparently I need to do it in the next couple of years before the sequel hits. Deadline is reporting here that at least we’ll have a recognizable director shepherding it in Andrew Stanton. It makes perfect sense for Disney/Pixar to want Stanton back, but it initially seems like an odd choice on his part (especially after getting to do live action with ‘John Carter’), though there seems to be a method to his madness. After the jump you can see what he has up his sleeve, but in any event…try and get excited for another adventure with Nemo!

Here’s why this might be going down, according to Deadline:

I’ve been hearing for months that he would come aboard to direct the sequel to Disney-based Pixar‘s Finding Nemo, with the idea that Disney would give him another shot behind the camera on a live-action film.
