When Pixar was a new and unknown company, it broke from the Disney mold by making feature length animated movies that specifically weren’t musicals. Nowadays, their template has become the norm. Every animation studio is trying to make emotionally satisfying stories filled with compelling characters (with mixed success, of course). Well, leave it to Pixar to sail against the winds they created. According to the latest rumors, Pixar is working on its first musical.
Disney and Pixar recently announced that they’re working on ‘Toy Story 4,’ which was a little surprising considering that the studios previously maintained that they would not make another ‘Toy Story’ film. And while we’re waiting for the fourth installment in the beloved animated franchise, let’s revisit some unused concept art for ‘Toy Story 3,’ which reveals a totally different sequel than the one that was eventually released in 2010.
The last 'Inside Out' trailer was fine, but mostly left us wanting more. It was a teaser in the truest sense of the word. Today, however, we get our first good look at Pixar's newest film and it's as good as we hoped.
Get a first look at Pixar’s long-delayed animated movie about dinosaurs, and find out why they had to replace its original director.
Even though we were told, once upon a time, that Disney and Pixar had no plans for 'Toy Story 4,' it seems that those plans have changed. After a series of short films that kept us up to date with the adventures of Woody and Buzz Lightyear and friends, Disney CEO Bob Iger has just announced that we'll finally be getting a 'Toy Story 4' after all, and it has an official release date and everything.
We got an early look at the new 'Toy Story' holiday special, 'Toy Story That Time Forgot,' through an early poster from San Diego Comic-Con, but the official one-sheet for the ABC event has now debuted. Get your first look at the toys back in action!
Coinciding with New York Comic Con, Pixar is promoting its new short film, ‘Lava,’ that will play before the theatrical release of ‘Inside Out’ next June. ‘Lava,’ directed by James Ford Murphy, is the story of a lonely volcano who sings – in a style inspired by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole’s version of ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ – in an attempt to find his one true love. It’s a sweet story that will garner attention as all the Pixar shorts seem to do – and can serve as a springboard for feature length animated films. How does one get an animated short approved by Pixar? Here, ‘Lava’ director James Ford Murphy explains the process, which started on a napkin.
This year was the first year in a very long time that we didn't get a new Pixar movie, but that's okay, because 2015 will see two of them -- 'Inside Out' and 'The Good Dinosaur.' While the latter hit a couple production snags along the way, Disney and Pixar have released the first 'Inside Out' trailer with the first footage from the film.
From 'A Bug's Life' to 'Finding Nemo,' Pixar's many movies have wowed movie lovers since it's very first work, 'Toy Story' in 1995. While there are many aspects that make up a Pixar creation, these films have bathed in colorful sequences, and a new supercut celebrates just that.
When it was first announced that Disney was purchasing Marvel, the minds of many fans leapt immediately to the possibility of a Disney-Pixar animated Marvel movie. We're sorta getting that in November with 'Big Hero 6' but as that movie approaches, it's become very clear that it's not really much of Marvel movie at all, other than being loosely based on the obscure 90s comic. What fans really want to know is if we'll ever see a Disney or Pixar animated movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. John Lasseter, who runs both Disney Animation and Pixar, has your answer: no.
