Let the 'Toy Story 4' rumors begin! (Again!)
Pixar announced today release dates for four upcoming projects from 2016-2018, three of which were previously unannounced. So, let's get into some big-time speculation to see what lies ahead for the future of Pixar Animation.

With all the Pixar sequels in the works, many fans have been left asking why we're not getting an 'Incredibles 2.' Up until this point it's been because writer/director Brad Bird has been reluctant to return to the franchise but now Bird is softening his stance giving hope that a sequel to one of the best superhero movies (seriously!) could be on the way some time soon.
Although there are no plans for a 'Toy Story 4' (yet), Pixar hasn't been shy about utilizing their most iconic characters for short films (see: the 'Toy Story' Toons and the 'Cars' Toons). But now, the latest adventure of Buzz, Woody and the gang will be heading to TV for Pixar's first Halloween special. Titled 'Toy Story of Terror,' was teased by Pixar today, giving us a first look at the project and letting us know where we'd be able to watch it.
With 'Monsters University' only about two months away, we finally get our biggest and best look at the collegiate world of Mike and Sulley in this brand new 'Monsters University' trailer. And from what we can see, this looks like it could be Pixar's funniest movie yet.
How does Pixar do it? The animation studio has an almost pristine track record with their films and has become one of the most trusted brands in all of film. With another film on the way this summer - the 'Monsters Inc.' sequel 'Monsters University' - we set off for Pixar's Emeryville campus to peek inside the hallowed walls, talk to the creators and find out a literal answer to that question. How does Pixar do it?
Although 'Monsters University' reunites much of the original cast of 'Monsters, Inc.,' plenty of new voices have been added to the mix, making this one of the most star-studded Pixar movie to date. Heck, it's DreamWorks-esque how many big names are associated with this movie. The voice actors involved have been slowly revealed over the past few months, but a few more were announced today, including John Krasinski and Nathan Fillion.
Pixar formally announced 'Finding Nemo 2' this morning, revealing that the sequel will be titled 'Finding Dory' and would bring back stars Alfred Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres. Want to know what 'Finding Dory' will be all about? We've got the official details.
'Monsters University,' Pixar's prequel to 'Monsters Inc.,' brings back Billy Crystal's Mike Wazowkski and John Goodman's James P. Sullivan to tell the duo's awkward college stories. But we get to go even further back in time in the brand-new 'Monsters University' trailer to see the moment when little toddler Mike first wanted to attend college. The only downside, for non-Japanese speakers at least, is that the trailer's all in Japanese.
What if two of your favorite Pixar characters were people instead of robots? The answer: they'd be just as adorable.
'Monsters University' has a lot of monsters at their...university. And what better what to show off Pixar's new student body than with a new 'Monsters University' poster that shows off the diverse cast of characters!
