At yesterday’s CinemaCon presentation John Lasseter gave some pretty big news about what we can expect to see from Disney/Pixar in the near future.
First up, they just announced that they will be making a PIXAR film based around the Mexican Holiday, Dia De Los Muertos. They didn’t really say much more beyond that, but it is still enough to get me curious.
The also named the upcoming Bob Peterson film slated for May 30th 2014. It is now called The Good Dinosaur.
Finally, they’ve also announced that Pete Docter’s next big Pixar project will be a movie that takes us inside the human mind. That one is slated for June 19th, 2015.
The Good Dinosaur Official Synopsis:
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”).
Teaser Synopsis for Pete Docter’s “Mind Trip”
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.
