Sound Bite: John Travolta – on being first animated movie
Yes I’d been offered a few but they weren’t the right ones and I you know I had a high end comparative because Tom Hanks and uh Robin Williams are friends of mine and they had done Aladdin and toy Story and I thought “well if I ever do one of these animated features I want it to, you know I’d rather it be a classic or a high end one at least’ you know I don’t want to, if I do it I want to do it right. So then this came along with John Lasseter from Pixar you know kind of over seeing it and uh High End Disney animated feature, Walt Disney and uh I thought well it’s a good script, it’s a good cast, uh top animators, this has the earmarks of a good classic animated feature.

(talks) yeah in an action movie (talks) Yeah Face/Off or Broken Arrow and I thought well I’ve done those kinds of roles so it had to be a mix of like a hardy tough guy and a a very sweet thing too you know.
Sound Bite: John Travolta – singing on soundtrack
Yeah I loved you know I was invited by Dick Cook to sing a song with Miley Cyrus and I very excited about that and then she wrote a terrific song with her partner and I couldn’t get over how uh great uh that was. (talks) Yeah I met her at the Oscars, we sat together in the audience at the Oscars and my wife had met her at her concert with my daughter. So a little bit I knew her but really is a project had us get to know each other better.
