Disney has officially released the teaser trailer for John Carter, the live-action directorial debut of Andrew Stanton, director of WALL-E and Finding Nemo. The mysterious teaser holds far more back than it reveals, as the plot is barely touched upon. However, this being our first look at footage from the highly-anticipated film, it is exciting to get a glimpse at how the film will look up on the big screen. Read on to watch the teaser trailer for John Carter! And yes, it is perfectly fine to get excited.
2012, the year of the film’s release will be momentous for the property, as it will be the 100th anniversary of the publication of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Princess of Mars, the book that started it all. Science fiction films owe a great deal to the book series. It may be difficult for audiences to ‘get’ that John Carter isn’t ripping off sci-fi films from the past 25 years. However, with Andrew Stanton’s direction (come on, the guy brought us WALL-E, where robots can fall in love, and it’s totally believable), we are hoping for another creative science fiction story.
The John Carter teaser trailer begins playing in theaters with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 at midnight tonight. The film hits theaters on March 9, 2012!
Note: John Carter is a Disney film, not a Pixar film. We are covering it because Andrew Stanton (director of Finding Nemo and WALL-E) is making his first foray into live-action and is directing the film for Disney.
