Practically everyone who has seen Toy Story 3 would agree that it was a perfect end to a long trilogy that defines Pixar Animation Studios. So it was a bit hard to understand why they would ever want to continue the franchise given how it all ended.
However, Toy Story 4 defies that by giving its fans the perfect epilogue. And now we get to bring that home on 4K, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital. Along with the terrific sequel, there are a ton of bonus features to look forward to, all of which we will cover in our review below.
A new trailer for Disney-Pixar’s Finding Dory was bound to drop sooner or later, and who better to release the trailer than Ellen DeGeneres, the voice of Dory, the lovable and absented-minded blue fish. The film is the follow-up to 2003’s Finding Nemo, which also won an Academy Award. The new trailer is scheduled to make its debut on Wednesday, March 2.
Disney has released the first teaser trailer for the next animated feature from Pixar, Inside Out, which is set to premiere next summer.
Directed by Pete Docter (Monsters Inc., Up) from his own story which was likely whipped into script form by Pixar’s vast human brain trust, Inside Out tells the story of a little girl named Riley and the different emotions she experiences during the story, which are portrayed on-screen as unusual characters living in her head voiced by Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Mindy Kaling, Phyllis Smith, and Lewis Black.
Pixar’s animated shorts are nothing short of splendid whimsical fun for everyone. But underneath all of that is a creative team hoping to make their dreams come true and make it big. These animated shorts showcase a lot of directing and animating talents. Like all of the Pixar features before them, Monsters University will have a short of its own that will lead into the big feature. The short is called The Blue Umbrella and it comes from technical artist Saschka Unseld.
Well we have a short clip here below short courtesy of the people over at the Wall Street Journal. Check it out.
In The Blue Umbrella, it looks like the Pixar team is experimenting with photorealistic technology, which begs the question, what exactly do the people have in store for us if Blue Umbrella looks this good. At first I thought I was looking at a live-action clip. The rain and texture of the umbrellas look all too real to be animation.
Disney‘s D23 Expo is in full swing, and plenty of juicy morsels are finding their way out to the masses.
Of the many announcements made, two come from the folks at Pixar Animation, who revealed two upcoming movie projects. Neither of the two have titles at the moment, but they will be the next two films to follow Brave (June of 2012) and Monsters University, the Monsters, Inc. prequel that’s set to arrive in June of 2013.
