Disney’s Pixar Animation Studios is co-producing a feature film about the dinosaurs, with Disney CEO Bob Iger and Pixar Co-founder Pete Docter on board.
Disney, Pixar and Iger have joined forces for the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The collaboration follows Docter’s announcement last year that Pixar was working on a dinosaur animated feature film, which Docter said was “not a Disney thing.”
Disney is also developing an animated feature called The Powerpuff Girls.
Sources tell THR that the Disney-Pixar collaboration was first discussed when Disney chief content officer Ted Sarandos visited Pixar in January.
Iger was at Pixar’s headquarters in Burbank, California, during a meeting to discuss the project.
Docter and Docter were present, as were Disney Chief Creative Officer Tom Brevoort and Iber Fellow John Lasseter.
In addition to Docter, Iger, Docter-Pizzarini, and Lasseters, the filmmakers will be produced by Iger’s The Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Pixar Animation Productions.
The project is expected to hit theaters in 2019.
