Can the Pixar Magic transfer to Live Action

Ben Child asks a very intriguing question:

Does the idea of Pixar – or rather, Pixar’s people – moving into live action appeal to you? And do you expect to see Stanton thrive in his new arena, or struggle to make waves outside his natural habitat? Is the wonder of movies such as Up and Wall-E all in the animation, or do you, like me, suspect that these are works of unparalled dynamism and verve, filled with deceptively simple ideas that might just transform the wider film-making world?

The film, of course, is John Carter of Mars. See what Child has to say at the Guardian.
