A Beginner’s Guide to John Carter ‘s Mars


This Friday, Finding Nemo and WALL•E director Andrew Stanton will go where no other filmmaker has managed to go before, as he tackles the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs in Disney’s John Carter, and genre fans, whether in comics or movies, may be pleasantly surprised by the familiarity of some of the themes, being that Burroughs’ work had such a huge creative influence on fantasy and science fiction writers in the hundred years since the first book, “A Princess of Mars.”
