I Love Brad Bird

Yay! We're getting another Brad Bird movie!

As I'm sure you know, Brad Bird is one of my favourite animators. He directed my all-time favourite movie, The Iron Giant, and he directed Pixar's mega-hit The Incredibles.

Well, it was announced today that Bird's next film will be Pixar's Ratatouille. It's about a mouse who lives in a Paris restaurant, and all the talking animals he runs into in France.

Ratatouille has been in development at Pixar for about three years under the guidance of Jan Pinkava. Pinkava is the writer/director of Pixar's Oscar-winning short film Geri's Game. (You know...the one in front of A Bug's Life.) It was always assumed that Pinkava was directing, so today's announcement came as a surprise to quite a few people.

Ratatouille - directed by Brad Bird - comes out in June 2007.
