Huge Andrew Stanton interview.
This is a huge and detailed interview with Stanton. I’ll only quote his intro here and then you can fly over to reread the whole thing. I think Disney likes to spread these things around to more than just the top five geek/movie sites. I imagine this way they can hit a broader range of demographics. Hitting a Dad site makes sense. I’m a dad of the generation who certainly knew the books. They were just part of the culture when we were teens. We read the Marvel comics and collected and passed our Burroughs novels around. I even had one of my high school teachers borrowing them from me. -Jeff
