It was much more of an action-adventure, and we really wanted to go more musical, with more comedy. I made a commitment to writing the script with the songwriters, where you're going back and forth a lot. So we all had to be on the same page and have the same vision. I was getting excited about Bobby and Kristen's ideas (the husband-and-wife songwriting team of Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez)
they were getting excited about my ideas. Really, it's just about creating a very powerful, emotional story, but also having it be something that is a lot of fun and actually quite epic, something big.
We know what we made. But at the same time, I feel like once we hand the film over, it belongs to the world, so I don't like to say anything and let the fans talk. I think it's up to them. Disney films were made in different eras and were all celebrated for different reasons, but a 2013 film would have a 2013 point of view.
