Rydstrom Helms New Pixar Feature

Animation World Magazine has confirmed rumors that Gary Rydstrom is currently helming a feature length animated film at Pixar.

Gary pitched three ideas for a short film to Pixar, and one was accepted and received an Oscar nomination. Entitled ‘Lifted’, it will be released theatrically with Pixar’s Ratatouille.

His success with that has resulted in this feature gig. Also comes word that Jim Capobianco, story supervisor of Ratatouille and Kiel Murray, writer for Cars, is also attached to the new project.

Rydstrom is an award winning sound designer who’s worked on such films as “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” “Spaceballs,” “Terminator 2: Judgement Day,” “Jurassic Park,” “Titanic,” “Saving Private Ryan,” “Minority Report” and “Finding Nemo.”
