A week after Floyd Norman let it slip that "Monsters2" (now Monsters University) was to be helmed by a new director, we find out just who that is.
According to Mike of The Pixar Blog and other sources, at the Cars 2 Blogger event today, it was announced that Mater and the Ghost Light co-director, Dan Scanlon, will direct Pixar's first prequel. Scanlon also did storyboards on Cars and on Toy Story 3. Once again, it's great to see Pixar trust a new director with one of their established franchises.
Sure, it's no Bob Peterson, but I'm still excited to see how Dan fairs in the director's chair!
