Last night at CinemaCon, The Walt Disney Studios updated attendees on the current slate of Pixar movies.  We already knew about the “Inside the Mind” feature, but what does Pixar have in store for its take on Día de los Muertos?


U.S. Release Date: June 19, 2015
Director: Pete Docter
Co-Director: Ronnie del Carmen
Producer: Jonas Rivera

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.


U.S. Release Date: May 30, 2014
Director: Bob Peterson
Co-Director: Peter Sohn
Producer: John Walker

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”).


Director: Lee Unkrich
Producer: Darla K. Anderson

From director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson, the filmmaking team behind the Academy Award®-winning “Toy Story 3,” comes a wholly original Pixar Animation Studios film that delves into the vibrant holiday of Día de los Muertos.

So not much information on the release date or story behind the Day of the Dead, but considering Good Dinosaur is a 2014 release, followed by Mind in 2015, and knowing that Frozen looks to be on a fast track for a potential 2013 release (Frozen is not a Pixar film), along with Pixar’s Planes, Dia de los Muertos might be a ways off in 2016.

    • Kids don’t want to see movies about middle aged super heroes. I enjoyed Incredibles, but it missed the mark. It should have been about the kids and their desire to be Supers like there parents were.

      Imagine if Syndrome had gotten Dash to put on a costume and go vigilante, and while Dash is “stopping crime” he is actually furthering Syndrome plot some how. Then Mr. incredible is forced out of retirement to track down this “new villain” only to find out its his son. Thay would have been a better plot and probably get the sequel we want.

      • So you think that Kids are the only audience for a pixar movie? I’m not sure if they are even the MAIN audience. The think the family as a whole is the target. Up, for instance, was not specificly aimed at kids.
