In case you’ve not been following my blogging lately, most of my free time has been consumed with Legend of the Seeker news but I still love other science fiction and fantasy projects.
And it was way past time I check out what was going on with Disney/Pixar’s “John Carter of Mars” movie project. Unfortunately, I don’t have time to do a decent writeup here so I’m just going to link to some threads I started at SF-Fandom. I hope that will suffice for now. I did, however, find a couple of fan sites that are working hard to publish spy reports and I expect I’ll be visiting them often.
- Thomas Haden Church *almost* reveals info on “John Carter” (updated)
- IO9 Captures Sneak Peak of John Carter props and set
- Two fan sites with John Carter of Mars spy reports
- The Scotsman interviews Mark Strong
- Examiner runs an animation test with a Green Man
- MovieScope publishes teaser with “John Carter of Mars” Asst. Dir. Tommy Gormley
- How Utah drew Disney’s attention for “John Carter of Mars”
- Story about “John Carter of Mars” impact on Page, Utah
- Wales Online profiles Mark Strong (Matai Shang in “John Carter of Mars”)
