John Carter Director: Edgar Rice Burroughs Influence was akin to the Beatles influence in music

Andrew Stanton, John Carter News

‘John Carter’ director Andrew Stanton says the Edgar Rice Burroughs books that his movie is based on, had as much influence on the genre at The Beatles had on the music industry. The ‘Finding Nemo’ filmmaker made the comments at a recent UK press conference to publicize Disney’s forthcoming Sci-Fi epic.
Stanton told reporters, “To me it’s like the influence that The Beatles’ music did. It just made great artists do things that was of a similar inspiration but they gave it their own thumbprint, their own DNA”. The director continued, “And that’s what great art does – it inspires other artists to do great art, and that’s what it should do. There’s nothing that you like in this world that wasn’t influenced by a bunch of key things; nothing came completely clean out of a vacuum”.
