"We’re excited to be pushing the boundaries of 3-D and computer technology to tell our stories in the best possible way," said John Lasseter, chief creative officer for Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios." At the same time, we’re drawing on our past to emphasize memorable characters, original edge-of-your-seat stories, and believable worlds."

The first digital 3D movie to be released is "Bolt" the story of a dog of the same name that believes he has superhero powers. John Travolta is the voice of Bolt and the popular singe/actress Miley Cyrus is the voice of Bolt’s owner Penny in the film, which opens on November 26.

"We couldn’t be more proud and excited about our upcoming line-up of feature projects," said Dick Cook, chairman of The Walt Disney Studios.
