Disney Developing Movie For Their Mouse Logo Guy
Burny Mattinson, who almost makes me wish I was an old man so I'd have a name like "Burny," is the supervising story artist for the lovingly hand drawn new Winnie The Pooh movie. He worked on the 60's Pooh cartoons, which are referred to at Disney as "Pooh Classic." Mattison's now working on a new pitch:
I am working on just an idea of my own which is basically a Mickey, Donald, Goofy feature film idea. We have to present it first to the bosses to get the green light.
This project will probably excite our younger readers, who'll be thrilled that those funny anthropomorphic animals from Kingdom Hearts are getting a movie. However, I doubt 75 year old Mattison's writing big parts for Sora and Riku. (Did kids play Epic Mickey? I found it very, very frustrating.) But I like the idea of a Mickey film in general. If it's anywhere near as awesome as A Goofy Movie, which you may not think is awesome but it actually is, I'm in. (Bleeding Cool)
