Pixar & Disney Vets To Helm “Darkmouth”

Alcon Entertainment has hired two Disney Animation and Pixar veterans – David Pimental (“Moana”) and Douglas Sweetland (“Toy Story”) to direct an animated feature adaptation of Irish author Shane Hegarty’s fantasy adventure book series “Darkmouth”.

The comedic animated fantasy follows an overeager kid who bites off more than he can chew when he prematurely jumps into the family business: hunting monsters.

Lloyd Taylor (“Race to Witch Mountain”) will pen the script while Simon Brooks, Kira Davis, Craig Peck, Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove will produce.
