    Why Pixar Will Not Make Live-Action Movies Of Their Classic Hits?

    Pixar movies occupy a major portion of our childhood memories. They have given us some magical moments to cherish.

Many fans have pointed out that they would like to see their favorite movies in live-action

    In a recent interview, Pete Docter was asked what he thinks about the viral fan campaign to make ‘Ratatouille’ into a live-action film. However, the CCO of Pixar does not even want to think about it. “No, and this might bite me in the butt for saying it, but it sort of bothers me,” he told Times. “I like making movies that are original and unique to themselves. To remake it, it’s not very interesting to me personally.”

    Pete Docter further explained saying, “So much of what we create only works because of the rules of the [animated] world.” And so making a live-action film about a rat chef might actually not work. He added, “So if you have a human walk into a house that floats, your mind goes, ‘Wait a second. Hold on. Houses are super heavy. How are balloons lifting the house?’” 

    Docter continued, “But if you have a cartoon guy and he stands there in the house, you go, ‘Okay, I’ll buy it.’ The worlds that we’ve built just don’t translate very easily.” He referred to the iconic house scene from ‘Up’.

    Pixar has been producing some incredibly successful movies all this time. But the recent launches like ‘Soul’, ‘Luca’, ‘Turning Red’ could not impress viewers. So Pete Docter understands the importance of ‘Inside Out 2’ performing well at the theaters.

    If this doesn’t do well at the theater, I think it just means we’re going to have to think even more radically about how we run our business,” says Docter. He also talks about how hard it is to find ideas that the audience would appreciate. 

    A lot of people say, ‘I totally thought toys came to life when I wasn’t in my room.’ ‘I totally believed there were monsters in my closet,’” he says. “We’re still rummaging around for things like that, but it’s harder and harder to find as we’re into our 28th movie or whatever.”
