There are five key emotions in Pixar’s Inside Out: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust. But did you know there were originally over 20 emotions that were going to appear? That’s just one of the surprising facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which journeys deep into the inner recesses of the Memory Dump to bring you this episode all about Inside Out.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that Finding Nemo didn’t really need a sequel. It was a completely charming, yet contained adventure, wrapped up pretty neatly. But, it was a very, very successful Pixar movie and, these days, that means sequel. Of the first seven Pixar movies, only Finding Nemo and A Bug’s Life (which has seemed to be almost ret-conned out of existence in the Pixar universe) hadn’t yet had sequels, but that’s about to change next summer as Finding Dory opens in theaters.
By the time Finding Dory hits theaters next summer, it’ll have been 13 years since we met everyone’s favorite neurotic and forgetful fish in Finding Nemo. Ellen DeGeneres’ Dory is returning to the big screen with her very own exciting adventure, and while we’re still waiting for the trailer, Pixar has revealed a rather charming poster for the sequel.
What qualities signify the best movie of the year? Could it be one that thoughtfully examines the human condition in the most striking way? Perhaps one that makes you laugh as much as it makes you cry and introspect over hard-to-swallow truths. Maybe even a movie that’s so visually dynamic its detailed beauty elevates the wonder of its evocative story. Now here’s the kicker: what if that movie was animated?
Pixar’s business model is simple but powerful. It’s a two-step process, essentially: choose a thing that does not talk, and then make it talk. Talking toys, talking bugs, talking cars, talking fish, talking rats — they’ve all worked in the past for Pixar, and so it only makes sense that Aaron Sorkin would draw on this same well of inspiration when dreaming up a pitch for the animation studio.
With two Pixar films in theaters this year, we have been truly blessed. After the success of this summer’s delightfully clever Inside Out, this fall brings the long-developing The Good Dinosaur to the big screen, and the latest clip from the upcoming animated adventure features some very familiar Pixar feelings.
Before Joy, Fear, Sadness, Anger and Disgust made the cut, 21 other emotions were considered for Pixar’s Inside Out. In a new special feature from the upcoming DVD for the animated film, courtesy of USA Today, director Pete Docter reveals the various emotions that were initially considered for Riley.
The title of True Pixar Obsessive cannot simply be claimed; it must be earned. And it’s not enough to simply see all the movies, either. A real acolyte of Pixar goes above and beyond in their hopeless devotion to the poignant children’s films that...
It’s hard to believe, but Pixar has been releasing films for 20 years. Beginning with Toy Story in 1995, the animation studio has delivered wonderful, funny, touching and inspiring movies for two decades. Their upcoming film The Good Dinosaur continues the tradition of creating delightful unlikely friendships, and in the spirit of that idea, the latest featurette for Pixar’s latest highlights 20 years of magical friendships.
Two new Pixar films this year means two new Pixar shorts, and while many (myself included) were not a fan of Lava, there’s still hope for the studio’s next short, Sanjay’s Super Team. And you can get your first peek at footage from director Sanjay Patel’s heartfelt and personal animated short with this new official clip.
