Since 2006's 'Cars' Pixar has pumped out a film a year, but production delays in 'The Good Dinosaur' mean that they're sitting out 2014, and the company is not used to taking this much time off. And so last night -- a year to the day before they release it -- director Pete Docter and producer Jonas Rivera presented a scene and the opening five minutes of 'Inside Out.'
For the first year since 2005 we won't be getting a new full-length Pixar film, and while that's kind of a bummer to think about, we do have some wonderful Pixar news to share today. The studio has released an official synopsis for one of two (yes, two) new films aimed for released in 2015: Pete Docter's 'Inside Out.' And, as a bonus, the studio has debuted a new 'Cars' short on its Disney Movies Anywhere platform today, just in time for the holiday.

Now that Disney has gobbled up everything that's important to you and your childhood, they're going to start doing what any corporation worth its salt would do: start squeezing every single possible dollar out of your bank account until your wallet cries uncle. The first step in their recent wave of corporate synergy was giving the 'Star Wars' comic license back to Marvel. Step two is an even bigger deal: giving Pixar a 'Star Wars' movie to make.
After the success of this past Halloween's 'Toy Story of Terror,' Pixar and ABC have announced another new holiday-themed 'Toy Story' TV special: the Christmas-themed 'Toy Story That Time Forgot' which will premiere later this year.

As we're currently in the throngs of awards season, studios are combing through movie reviews to find the most beaming critiques to place in new "critics" TV spots to promote their films' Oscar clout -- look at ones for 'Gravity,' 'Dallas Buyers Club' and the like.

In news that should surprise no one who keeps an eye on Disney's finances, word has surfaced that 'Cars 3' is in the works over at Pixar.
