Will Disney Make An Animated Movie Set In The Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Will Disney Make An Animated Movie Set In The Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Head of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation John Lasseter talks here about how Big Hero 6 is solely a product of the latter and not Marvel Studios, whether we'll see an animated feature set in the MCU, and director Don Hall comments on how his movie compares to Guardians of the Galaxy...

Believe it or not, it's been five years since Disney bought Marvel for a whopping $4 billion! However, the one thing that many of us thought would happen hasn't, and that's a joint production between Marvel and Disney. Disney Animation's Big Hero 6 appeared to be a step in the right direction, but while it may be using Marvel characters, it's not exactly a Marvel movie! When asked by Vulture about whether there have been discussions of some sort of team up, John Lasseter revealed: "Not yet. No, we haven’t. If we went directly into the Marvel Universe, that would mean we’d work more directly with Marvel. Without question, it was made 100 percent here. They’d forgotten the books existed." Director Don Hall meanwhile believes that people will gravitate towards the quirky looking Big Hero 6 for the same reason that they did for Guardians of the Galaxy. "They do feel like distant cousins,” said Hall. “Guardians is a Marvel movie, but it’s sort of gone off on a different branch. It indicates that fans of superhero movies are willing to try new flavors. We don’t call it a superhero movie. We call it a super nerd movie."

it would be cool if they did this to test the waters for some lesser known characters.

@Vadakin where did you find that?
Pasto - 8/28/2014, 6:24 PM
I'm all for it, but how exactly would that work?

If it's done well, ok. But if it's just another goofy kiddie movie, no thanks.

No no no
DrDoom - 8/28/2014, 6:31 PM
I certainly hope not. Animated and live action should not cross over in this case.
DylanTBest - 8/28/2014, 6:32 PM
Yeah, I'd rather Marvel sticks to sophisticated films made for adults like they currently are!
DylanTBest - 8/28/2014, 6:35 PM
They said TEAMING UP with Marvel [Studios], not directly making a film set in the MCU.
Marqy47 - 8/28/2014, 6:35 PM
Wonder how many will actualy read the quotes and how many will just come here to express their vocal opinions.
ScottMontgomery - 8/28/2014, 6:36 PM
I just want Pixar to make an Incredibles sequel...
MrBlackJack - 8/28/2014, 6:36 PM
Yeah, not gonna happen.
Sipprelle - 8/28/2014, 6:41 PM
@Vadakin No....
HAILHYDRA - 8/28/2014, 6:41 PM
This is another click bait article from @josh. I feel like this kind of article is written just to invite people to hate on the MCU. There's nothing here that would suggest that conclusion but yet your headline acts like it's more likely than not.
DylanTBest - 8/28/2014, 6:42 PM
They said a few months ago Incredibles 2 is in developement (In fact a few plot rumors have already been floating around.)

Also, I'm surprised there hasn't been an article about Daniel Radcliffe meeting with Marvel, the news has been out for DAYS (I tried telling about it, but my comment wouldn't get through for some reason.)
Marqy47 - 8/28/2014, 6:42 PM

MCU movies are made for the same audience as every other CBM whether its from Sony, Fox or WB. Those who think differently are kidding themselves.
XelCorp - 8/28/2014, 6:43 PM
Damn...this would really advance us to Disney Princesses Level 10
Marqy47 - 8/28/2014, 6:45 PM

Im already level 10. Where have you been ? :)
Demongod20 - 8/28/2014, 6:47 PM
@ DrDoom

To late DrDoom the Star Wars movies, animated series, comics, and video games are canon. :P
HAILHYDRA - 8/28/2014, 6:48 PM
This article has no credibility and is more of an editorial than actual news. There's nothing cited that suggests Disney wants to make an MCU film but next thing you know, Marvel haters will be citing this article as if it were fact when they probably didn't read the article at all. Today's trend of click bait reporting has killed journalism. Way to go @josh.
UltimateHunt - 8/28/2014, 6:49 PM
Mhmmmmmm. No.
DrDoom - 8/28/2014, 6:50 PM
Demongod, notice how I specifically said 'in this case'?

No, I guess you didn't.
XelCorp - 8/28/2014, 6:51 PM
@Maxi91291 - Loool well expect to be advance another 10 levels when Age of Ultron comes out
TheDarkKryptonian - 8/28/2014, 6:51 PM
As long as it's not as bad as the animated movies Marvel makes now.
HAILHYDRA - 8/28/2014, 6:51 PM
When a casual user posts an editorial under the news category you guys a scream and shout for it to be removed but when @Josh posts an editorial like this you guys act like it's news.
XelCorp - 8/28/2014, 6:51 PM
NolanMarek - 8/28/2014, 6:52 PM
Incredibles sequel first!
Kong - 8/28/2014, 6:53 PM
Animated Star Wars/Indiana Jones Original Trilogy or GTFO
Marqy47 - 8/28/2014, 6:54 PM

At minimum. :)
Kong - 8/28/2014, 6:54 PM

LOL you say that like it's not happening.
Pasto - 8/28/2014, 6:57 PM
This IS news. Stop being so insecure.
imaginejim - 8/28/2014, 7:01 PM
I think Pixar would make a great Power Pack movie. That would be perfect for them :)
DylanTBest - 8/28/2014, 7:04 PM
Don't even take the time to reply to him, he knows it's actual news.
HAILHYDRA - 8/28/2014, 7:04 PM
@markymark I don't expect everyone to know the difference but when a writer states facts and then draws his own conclusions they are no longer reporting news. They are editorializing. The headline itself was editorializing. It should've read "Big Hero Six makers address the idea of making an MCU movie". @Josh instead decided to make a headline that was less accurate and more grabby so that his article would get more hits and he can feed his kids.
HAILHYDRA - 8/28/2014, 7:08 PM
@Josh himself has admitted to starting flame wars for the sake of getting more clicks. Check his avi. This is another example of that.
