Does Pixar have a part in all CG features now? Or was this done in the "old" Disney CG studios? B

Actually, from what little these clips show of the aborted Lost in Space series, it doesn't look too bad...surprised it never got the chance. Network executives! - Incompetent ninnies!!!

Let the "Disney ripping off Pixar" begin! This soulless clone of a Pixar film is exactly the reason that Disney needed to throw a grotesque amount of money at Pixar and buy them outright. Makes me want to VOMIT! I wish Pixar had split from Disney so that we could see what they would do without the yoke of Disney's money around their necks. Brad Bird RULES! out.

looked like it would have been as good as the movie, without the charm of TV's Joey!

money and some recasting and some added script tweeking and the show might have taken off [no pun intended]. Too bad though.

I got misty when I heard "Danger Will Robinson", though. I don't care how bad it is, that... moved me.

That Lost in Space show doesn't look too bad from those clips. Does anyone know where we might download the entire thing? BitTorrent maybe?

I grew up, inasmuch as I grew up, I managed a halfhearted effort at best, watching Lost in Space in the sixties. It was easily the coolest thing on tv at the time, along with Batman and (for us in the UK)Thunderbirds. The film was a bit of a disappointment, where was the ubercool Jupiter 2 (apart from a little stage 1 lip service) ? Why change the robot (but thank Asimov for Dick Tufeld's voice). As for the graphics up above, damn I just LOVE the retro sci-fi look. Count me in. All the way. IN !!!

you'll know that it doesn't look a THING like this developmental artwork. Sad.
March 4, 2007, 6:54 a.m. CST
remind me of the Lilo & Stitch ship designs. I remember hearing a designer saying that they wanted to get away from all the sharp edges on their designs. I think they were getting away from sharp edges so the toys from said film wouldn't be ostracised by the consumer product police.

Wow Disney bashing, haven't seen any of that his hour. When I see phrases such as "Let the Disney ripping off Pixar begin" I realise just how moronic half the people on this site are. I don't see any similarities between this and Pixar films other than that they're in the same medium. Oh what the hell, let's just slap the Pixar name on the front of this film then I'm sure everyone will love it right? Oops, how cynical of me to think there's ANY form of biased against Disney on this or any other site. Idiots.

Robot looks like shit and all the actors were wrong.

When the new LIS pilot was not picked up, Ronald D Moore bought up the Jupiter 2 sets for next to nothing and used them for the CIC onboard the battlestar Pegasus

You heard the story wrong, James Cameron bought those sets for his Jesus' Tomb Mockumentary. They look so Jerusalemy. The only thing redeeming about the LIS movie was Gary Oldman and Heather Graham's tits. The pilot looked awful (that's the Robot?).

I saw it in the theater when it came out, back when I lived in South Austin, and I remember thinking it was reasonably good fun. There was some CGI alien who was all crazy. Then again, maybe the fact I was so fucking high at the time that I was hearing voices had something to do with my overall impressions. Oh how I miss that cheap Mexican brick weed...
March 4, 2007, 12:46 p.m. CST
in the last clip? Tyra the skank?
March 4, 2007, 5:31 p.m. CST
What the hell is the movie ABOUT!? All the trailers and commercials are a strung together pieces of non-sequiter gags.
March 4, 2007, 7:33 p.m. CST
You're not going to see any similarities between "Meet the Robinsons" and a Pixar film because it is missing one key ingredient...heart. The comparison I was making was in the fact that the look and the design of the film is quite reminiscient of "The Incredibles", which is not better because it has the Pixar name on it, but better because it was a far superior film! "Meet the Robinsons" looks a lot more like a "Chicken Little" sized failure. A soulless damned creation whose only sin was having no heart. I'm not Disney bashing so much as I am voicing a complete distaste for the corporation and their product. If I were bashing them, I would disrespect all of their films out of hand without judging them on the merit of the work, but by the name that they bear. I just happen to dislike all of Disney's work as a matter of taste. I also dislike yogurt, are you also going to accuse me of yogurt bashing because I dislike all yogurt products?
March 4, 2007, 7:36 p.m. CST
or maybe you'll just refer to me as moronic because you like yogurt as well as Disney.

I really don't understand the appeal. There's a couple good gags in the trailer, but it all seems half-baked and uninspired--the bastard stepson of The Incredibles, with some Robots, Iron Giant, and Sky Captain thrown in for good measure. And acebandage, I was honestly getting a Chicken Little vibe from this for some reason.
March 4, 2007, 9:45 p.m. CST
That is EXACTLY what I was saying!

I actually really enjoyed Lost in space the movie. I was disapointed it didnt do that well, although it did open in first place at 20 million back in 1997 i was working as a projectionist at the Muvico Palm Harbor 10 in florida when it opened.LOST in SPACE was the first movie i Built up on my own as a projectionist after a month of training. there was one scene in particular that i allways made a point of being in the back of the auditorium to do a theatre check on. when the robinsons are trying to escape the planet and John Robinson chews up the scenery with the line "WE HAVE TO GO DOWN THROUGH THE PLANET...." oh that movie was so much fun, I thought the ideas they had for the sequal that they talked about on the dvd could have shown some real promise. Its ashame they never reach fruition
March 5, 2007, 1:54 a.m. CST
in fact im going to put the DVD on now on my Toshiba DLP home projector right now.

John Lassetter from Pixar is now head of all Disney animation and creative, including imagineering for the parks. Once he came onboard he scrapped 60 percent of the Meet the Robinsons movie and started over. He has stated that "Pixar is Pixar and Disney is Disney". and no Disney is not ripping off Pixar ....actually it is Lassetter who has led the way for a brand new state of the art studio being built in California for Disney which will bring back the 2-d hand drawn animation......including shorts (the first bringing back Goofys famous "how to" series....) Aint it cool news talkbackers suck.....your a bunch of babies. WAAAAAAAAA

I care not if Walt Disney, Orson Welles, and Gene Roddenberry came back from the grave to make this film. I still say it looks like reheated derivative crap. ____ P.S. : Jimmy Neutron is the other big influence I was trying to put my finger on. Thus making this film the bastard child of Jimmy Neutron and Elastigirl.
March 5, 2007, 6:10 p.m. CST
is fantastic as the voice of the tyrannosaurus!!!
March 5, 2007, 8:53 p.m. CST
fact one: Disney bought Lassiter and he is now as much a part of Disney as he is a part of Pixar. fact two: Meet the Robinsons is a DISNEY picture, not Pixar. and as you so eloquently pointed out, "Pixar is Pixar and Disney is Disney" fact three: this movie looks derivitive of many different animated films. Given these facts, along with my opinion that it looks like a derivitive pile of steaming cinematic failure, I am lead to sumise that my prior statements about the flop sweat dripping off of this project are in no way contrary to the facts which you have laid out. Now, if you don't mind, it appears I have made "boom-boom" in my "dipeys" and it is time for baby to go "beddy-by". Waaaa for now, Y'all!
