A few days ago, rumors started surfacing that director Bob Peterson—a mainstay of Pixar for years—had been pulled off of the studio’s 2014 film The Good Dinosaur. I was really hoping that the report would turn out to be untrue, but sadly confirmation has surfaced that Peterson has indeed been removed from the film. While one would think that co-director Peter Sohn would make an easy replacement, apparently that is not the case. So who, exactly, is directing The Good Dinosaur—a film that is slated to hit theaters in just nine months? Well a team of filmmakers is reportedly overseeing the production as the search for a replacement director ensues.
Hit the jump for more, including why Peterson was removed from the film and which filmmakers are currently steering the ship.
