Pixar unveil details on forthcoming features

The celebrated animation studio goes prehistoric, inside the mind and Mexicana...

Disney have revealed more details on the Pixar films announced at last year's Disney D23 event, including an official title and a tidbit of Monsters University info, as well as a whole new feature.

The latest word on all the animation house's project comes from the CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas (via The Playlist).

The previously untitled Pixar 'film about dinosaurs' directed by Bob Peterson, the animator who voiced the talking dog Dug in Up, will be called, imaginitively, The Good Dinosaur.

The film will ask the question: “What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct?” and the official plot synopsis promises a “hilarious, heartfelt and original tale.” It should arrive on 30 May 2014.

Pete Docter, director of Monsters Inc. and Up, is directing 'The Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside The Mind' in which they claim "Pixar takes audiences on incredible journeys into extraordinary worlds" as they have "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." That one's not due until 19 June 2015.

And, most intriguingly of all, the Toy Story 3 production team of director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson are working on “a wholly original Pixar Animation Studios film that delves into the vibrant holiday of Día de los Muertos.”  But we'll have to hang onto our seats until Autumn 2015 or Summer 2016 for this Mexican themed marvel..

Apparently too Monster Inc.'s Sully used to play practical jokes on Mike whilst he slept in his dorm: and we'll find out exactly what he did in a teaser trailer coming soon. Eek!

Rumours are also rife of a second Muppets movie and future adventures for Winnie The Pooh. A whole load of Disney magic to come in the next few years then.

Pixar's Brave opens in the UK on 17 August 2012.

      Erm... That bit about Pixar taking you on incredible journeys isn't the plot of the 'Mind' film, it's just them saying that the mind will be the setting for the NEXT incredibly journey... All the others are from previous films (Nemo, Up, Monsters, Wall E).

      Newt (the lizard one) was shelved because Blue Sky and Twentieth Century Fox stole the story idea and made that meandering Rio film ... unfortunate for sure !
