Pixar To Consult On 'The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made'

The creative team involved with Disney's 'The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made' flew to Pixar headquarters in California, on Wednesday for a table read of the project and to get feedback on the script from the "Pixar Brain Trust".

Brad Bird, Pete Docter, Andrew Stanton, Michael Arndt, Bob Peterson and president Ed Catmull were there for the consultations to Muppets director James Bobin, writer Jason Segel and producers David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman.

This is the second recent example of the animation giants assisting its Disney partner with a live-action feature after it helped shape reshoots for the upcoming 'Tron Legacy.'
