This film is still making news.

First they get rid of Brenda Chapman who was first female to direct a Pixar movie. The EW story says she will have co-directing credit. now, they lost Reese Witherspoon who was to have voiced the lead in Pixar's first film to have a female lead. Kelly McDonald (Boardwalk Empire) takes over as the lead voice and while I think she's great, she has nowhere near the prestige and visibility of Reese Witherspoon.

Why is this film full of constant controversy? It's not going to be released until June of 2012. Get it together. We need the first Pixar film with a female lead to be good and successful.
