The San Francisco Chronicle spoke with him at Pixar's studios in Emeryville about his experiences supervising a non-Pixar project, the English dubbing of Studio Ghibli's Tales From Earthsea, being distributed in the U.S. later this month by Walt Disney Pictures.
With his work on that film complete, Rydstrom is already working on another project, which he describes as "really fun". "I wish I could tell you what it was", he tells the Chronicle, "but it hasn't been announced."
It isn't immediately clear whether the project is at Pixar or not, but in all likelihood it is. Regardless, it appears that Rydstrom is very much on-board with the cancellation of what was to have been his feature directorial debut.
