MOVIE: Pixar announces two new movies
At the D23 Expo, Pixar announced two new projects for 2013 and 2014. Neither have names, but both have release dates, and descriptions.
Unnamed 2013 Pixar Movie:
What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? This hilarious, heartfelt and original tale is directed by Bob Peterson (co-director/writer, “Up;” writer, “Finding Nemo”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles,” “The Iron Giant”).
The untitled dinosaur movie arrives November 27, 2013.
Unnamed 2014 Pixar Movie:
Pixar takes audiences on incredible journeys into extraordinary worlds: from the darkest depths of the ocean to the top of the tepui mountains in South America; from the fictional metropolis of Monstropolis to a futuristic fantasy of outer space. From director Pete Docter (“Up,” “Monsters, Inc.”) and producer Jonas Rivera (“Up”), the inventive new film will take you to a place that everyone knows, but no one has ever seen: the world inside the human mind.
The untitled journey into the mind movie arrives May 30, 2014.
And for those who are dying to see yet another Toy Story movie, there’s a Toy Story short film on the way.
“Small Fry” (Working Title)
Director: Angus MacLane
In the latest Toy Story Toon, Buzz Lightyear is left behind at a fast food restaurant when a kids’ meal toy version of Buzz takes his place. While Bonnie’s toys are stuck with the annoying 3-inch-tall Buzz impersonator, the real Buzz is trapped in the restaurant at a support group for discarded toys. As Woody and the gang devise a way to rescue their friend, Buzz tries to escape the toy psychotherapy meeting.
I’m sure we’ll get official titles on these by the time Disney rolls out its big investor event at the first of the year. It should also be noted that the above release dates, are not the same release dates as the Disney/Marvel dates previously announced.
