Here is the press release for those into that sort of sadism:

DISNEY'S 'FAIRIES' DIRECT-TO-DVD FRANCHISE WILL ALSO DEBUT

NEW YORK, April 8, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- The Walt Disney Studios unveiled a diverse and ambitious slate of 10 new animated feature films from Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios to be released through the year 2012 at a New York press conference held today by Dick Cook, chairman of The Walt Disney Studios, and John Lasseter, chief creative officer for Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios.

The line-up includes new films from Disney and Pixar's accomplished team of filmmakers, and features vocal performances by such top celebrity talents as John Travolta and Miley Cyrus ("Bolt"), Reese Witherspoon, Billy Connolly and Emma Thompson ("The Bear and the Bow"), Anika Noni Rose and John Goodman ("The Princess and the Frog"), as well as return engagements by Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and the rest of the "Toy Story" vocal ensemble ("Toy Story 3"). The roster of new animated features includes six new films from Pixar Animation Studios, four from Walt Disney Animation Studios, and the first four in a series of direct-to-DVD films featuring Disney Fairies from DisneyToon Studios. Starting later this year with the release of Disney's "Bolt," all Disney and Pixar animated features will be presented in state-of-the-art Disney Digital 3-D(TM). Additionally, newly converted 3-D versions of the beloved classics, "Toy Story" and "Toy Story 2," are set to debut in 2009 and 2010 respectively.

Among the upcoming animated films on the 2008 release schedule are "WALL*E" (Pixar) from Academy Award(R)-winning director/writer Andrew Stanton ("Finding Nemo") opening nationwide June 27th; "Bolt" (Disney) from the talented new directing team of Chris Williams and Byron Howard, due in theatres on November 26th; and the Disney DVD and Blu-ray release of "Tinker Bell," the first in a new franchise of original entertainment set in the world of Fairies, on October 28th. The Studio's 2009 animated slate includes the summer release of Pixar's first 3-D feature, "Up," from director Pete Docter ("Monsters, Inc.") and co-director Bob Peterson, the Christmas Day release of Disney's original animated fairy tale "The Princess and the Frog" from acclaimed veteran Disney directors John Musker and Ron Clements ("The Little Mermaid," "Aladdin," "Hercules,") and the Disney DVD and Blu-ray release of "Tinker Bell North of Never Land" (working title). 2010 brings the highly anticipated return of Buzz and Woody in the Disney Digital(TM) 3D summer release of Pixar's "Toy Story 3" directed by Lee Unkrich ("Finding Nemo," "Monsters, Inc."); followed by the Christmas arrival of Disney's version of the classic fairy tale, "Rapunzel," featuring the directing debuts of animation legend Glen Keane and directing partner Dean Wellins, and the Disney DVD and Blu-ray release of "Tinker Bell A Midsummer Storm" (working title).

In the summer of 2011, Pixar's "newt" marks the directing debut of multiple Oscar(R)-winning sound designer Gary Rydstrom. Christmas 2011 brings Pixar's first fairy tale, "The Bear and the Bow," from acclaimed filmmaker/writer Brenda Chapman ("The Prince of Egypt"). The Disney DVD and Blu-ray release of "Tinker Bell A Winter Story" (working title) also debuts in 2011. The year 2012 will mark the return of Lightning McQueen, Mater the tow truck, and an international cast of favorite and new car characters in Pixar's "Cars 2," directed by Brad Lewis (producer of "Ratatouille"). Scheduled for Christmas 2012 from Walt Disney Animation Studios is "King of the Elves," an adaptation of a Philip K. Dick short story, directed by Aaron Blaise and Robert Walker ("Brother Bear").

Commenting on the announcement, Cook said, "We couldn't be more proud and excited about our upcoming line-up of feature projects. With so many great films literally on the drawing boards and computer screens, we felt that now was the perfect time to give moviegoers all over the world an update on the state of our art. In a year when our Studio is marking the 80th anniversary of Mickey Mouse, the character that started it all for us, it seems especially timely to share our plans for the future of animation. With John Lasseter and Ed Catmull guiding our creative efforts both at Emeryville and in Burbank, this is as exciting a time as any in our history."

Lasseter added, "This is an amazing time for animation at Disney and Pixar, and it's a thrill to be working on such a diverse and original group of films with such an all-star team of filmmakers. The thing I love best about my job is that I get to work at both Disney and Pixar with filmmakers who are passionate about their projects and who are the absolute best in the business. We're excited to be pushing the boundaries of 3-D and computer technology to tell our stories in the best possible way. At the same time, we're drawing on our past to emphasize memorable characters, original edge-of-your-seat stories, and believable worlds. Walt Disney and his creative team taught us how to blend comedy, powerful emotion, and action-filled excitement in our films, and this group of incredible filmmakers is bringing their own originality and sensibilities to the
process."

WALT DISNEY ANIMATION STUDIOS/ PIXAR ANIMATION STUDIOS RELEASE SCHEDULE
2008 -- 2012:

2008:

WALL*E (Domestic Release Date: June 27th, 2008)

What if mankind had to leave Earth and somebody forgot to turn off the
last robot?

Academy Award(R)-winning writer-director Andrew Stanton ("Finding
Nemo") and the inventive storytellers and technical geniuses at Pixar
Animation Studios transport moviegoers to a galaxy not so very far away for
a new computer-animated cosmic comedy about a determined robot named
WALL*E.

After hundreds of lonely years doing what he was built for, WALL*E
(short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) discovers a new
purpose in life (besides collecting knick-knacks) when he meets a sleek
search robot named EVE. EVE comes to realize that WALL*E has inadvertently
stumbled upon the key to the planet's future, and races back to space to
report her findings to the humans (who have been eagerly awaiting word that
it is safe to return home). Meanwhile, WALL*E chases EVE across the galaxy
and sets into motion one of the most incredible comedy adventures ever
brought to the big screen.

Joining WALL*E on his fantastic journey across a universe of
never-before-imagined visions of the future is a hilarious cast of
characters including a pet cockroach, and a heroic team of malfunctioning
misfit robots.

Walt Disney Animation Studios
Directors: Chris Williams, Byron Howard
Producer: Clark Spencer
Voice Talent: John Travolta, Miley Cyrus, Susie Essman
For super-dog Bolt (voiced by John Travolta), every day is filled with
adventure, danger and intrigue -- at least until the cameras stop rolling.
When the canine star of a hit TV show is accidentally shipped from his
Hollywood soundstage to New York City, he begins his biggest adventure yet
-- a cross-country journey through the real world. Armed only with the
delusions that all his amazing feats and powers are real, and with the help
of two unlikely traveling companions -- a jaded, abandoned housecat named
Mittens (voiced by Susie Essman), and TV-obsessed hamster in a plastic ball
named Rhino -- Bolt discovers he doesn't need superpowers to be a hero.
Miley Cyrus ("Hannah Montana") brings her vocal talents to the role of
Penny, Bolt's human co-star on the television series.



TINKER BELL (Disney DVD and Blu-ray Release Date: October 28th, 2008)
DisneyToon Studios
Director: Bradley Raymond
Producer: Jeannine Roussel
Enter the magical world of fairies and meet the enchanting creatures of
Pixie Hollow, who "nurture nature" and bring about the change of the
seasons. Changing the colors of the leaves, moving a sunbeam to melt snow,
waking animals from their winter slumber, or giving a patch of sproutlings
a sprinkle of water are all within the realm of these seasonal specialists.
Tinker Bell thinks her fairy talent as a "tinker" isn't as special or
important as the other fairies' talents. But when Tink tries to change who
she is, she creates nothing but disaster! With encouragement from her
friends Rosetta, Silvermist, Fawn and Iridessa, Tink learns the key to
solving her problems lies in her unique tinker abilities ... and discovers
that when she's true to herself, magical things can happen.

to its fullest. But at age 78, life seems to have passed him by, until a
twist of fate (and a persistent 8-year old Wilderness Explorer named
Russell) gives him a new lease on life. "Up" takes audiences on a thrilling

A cars sequel before an Incredibles sequel? Color me disappointed.

(Don't get me wrong, Cars was a surprisingly good movie; but The Incredibles universe just feels like it has more stories left to tell.)

I hope Pixar isn't getting stretched too thinly.

I don't know if Incredibles needs a sequel... that movie was kind of perfect as is...

Cars 2... I don't get that one either... definitely the weakest of the pixar movies.

The Bow and the Bear sounds interesting...

It's the 'weakest' as far as adults are concerned. As far as my friends' kids are concerned, it's one of the best. *shrug*

Modern Disney has always been more kid-oriented - one of the reasons they fail.

Yeah, my son and all his friends are nutzo for all things Cars.  And the merchandising is ridiculous.  They have cars you can buy from cars who may or may not have been in a race scene somewhere in the movie.  I bet there at 15 Lightning McQueen matchbox sized cars, all with slightly different lead paint.

Yes, Brad Bird is moving into live action which is likely the chief reason for no Incredibles sequel.

Not indefinitely. At least I hope. But he's working on a live-action film about the San Francisco earthquake near the turn of the century that was so devastating. I know at some point he talked about wanting to do an animated film noir that was very serious, which I genuinely hope to see someday.

Yeah I can't decide which one tastes better, purple Ramone, green Ramone, gold Ramone, or red Ramone.  I'm waiting for the special edition Joey Ramone to come out.

It's the 'weakest' as far as adults are concerned. As far as my friends' kids are concerned, it's one of the best. *shrug*

Modern Disney has always been more kid-oriented - one of the reasons they fail.

They do?

Yeah, if a studio doesn't make a gazillion dollars on opening day, it failed.  Trust me, I took economics in community college.

I think the most interesting aspect of that whole press release is how firmly Disney is committing to 3D. Couple that with strong industry push to get theaters outfitted with digital 3D projection, and it appears we are on the cusp of 3D finally becoming mainstream.

I wonder if several years from now our kids will be complaining when they have to watch the boring "flat" movies without the glasses.

Ok, so now that Disney owns Pixar, Disney is making them do direct-to-video releases. That's never a good thing, and I fear Disney might make them stretch themselves too thin, especially in the creativity department.

One of the things that has made Pixar stand out is that you'd get one really good movie a year from them. But I just don't see the same level of quality coming out if they start churning out movies like there's no tomorrow. I was already quite disappointed with Cars. I thought that I'd like it, but I felt there was something missing. I guess Disney feels the cars are easy to market to children, hence the sequel.

Other than that, I'm very iffy about the list. It doesn't really sound like there's anything catching my eye. Nothing very inspiring.

Was Toy Story 2 direct to DVD?  I don't recall.  It's better than the first one though.

It was originally intended for Direct-to-DVD but it became apparent early on that it was better than "Direct-to-DVD quality" so it was shifted to theatrical release.

Kind of bizarre aside:

Last year during our annual "Azalea Festival" one of the "celebrities" who came down was the lady who was the original animation model for Tinkerbell. We went to a concert and she came out and spoke for a few minutes before the show and did the Tinkerbell "preening" gestures that the animators modeled for use in Peter Pan.

It was pretty bizarre watching an 80-year old woman prancing around the stage acting exactly like Tinkerbell. However, it was all worth it when the crowd started chanting, "TINK-ER-BELL! TINK-ER-BELL!." The old lady was grinning from ear to ear. Was kind of cool to see somebody with such a tiny footnote in film history with so much pride in what she had done.

Well, and you have to figure that Disney makes a mint off of Direct-to-DVD stuff.  Any idea that they were going to stop it altogether was just crazy talk.  It seems that now they're just trying to bump up the quality and develop some new properties instead of making Peter Pan 8: I'm Tired Of Being Young Just Let Me Die Already.

You aren't reading this correctly... these are not all Pixar releases, they are both Pixar AND Disney Animation releases...  If you look at the list again you will see that Pixar is only doing a movie a year.

Yeah, I got no problem with Direct-to-DVD stuff (in fact, as a parent I very much appreciate them).  It's the cheap cash-in of classics that bothers me- we don't need Cinderella 2 & 3.  Or Peter Pan 2.  But a Tinkerbell spinoff?  Sure, why not.  I'm sure my daughter will love them.
