‘Toy Story 4’ Officially Announced With Original Director John Lasseter Returning
  |  @   |  

The Walt Disney Company chairman Bob Iger has officially announced that Pixar is making Toy Story 4, and that original Toy Story director John Lasseter will be returning to helm the fourth installment himself.

Disney has also locked in the June 16, 2017 calendar spot for a release date. The story will see Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the toys beginning a new chapter. The idea for the story was developed by some of the Pixar Brain Trust, including two-time Oscar-winner Lasseter (Toy Story, Tin Toy), two-time Oscar winner Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, WALL-E), Oscar winner Pete Docter (Up), and Toy Story 2 co-director and Oscar-winning Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich.

Disney In Depth: Movie Review: Finding Nemo 3D
  |  @   |  

Somewhere beyond the sea, Finding Nemo returns to theatres in 3D! The breathtakingly gorgeous animated feature first provided audiences with a glimpse into the environments and lives of the ocean’s inhabitants just about ten years ago. Only Pixar could develop such an enchanting atmosphere with a heart-tugging story that grasps the audience’s full attention as much as the visual “eye candy.” For a number of reasons, this is quite possibly the most immersive and entertaining 3D film I have experienced.

To be considered in this extraordinary league requires several components, and Nemo delivers in all of these ways. For one, you need a compelling plot. Who can argue with gripping storytelling that ties us to the universal theme of parents allowing their children to let go? In this case, little clownfish Nemo’s surprising capture by a diver startles us. Here, caring father Marlin (voiced by the perfectly-cast Albert Brooks) finally brings Nemo (Alexander Gould) to his first day of school, and in a matter of minutes and an act of defiance, Nemo wanders beyond the reef. Caught. Gone. We feel for Marlin, lost without his little boy, and also for his son, now stuck in a dentist’s office aquarium. Now it’s up to each of the fish to face their fears, overcome their doubts, and attempt to reunite. Compelling, check.

Disney In Depth: Top 10 Funniest Pixar Characters
  |  @   |  

Welcome to another edition of Disney In Depth! This week, in honor of Disney-Pixar’s most recent feature, Brave, I will be focusing on some of the best elements of Pixar’s films: funny characters. They evoke a laugh or two during perilous scenes, and manage to make us smirk when a situation seems far from humorous. These are the funniest of the bunch, offering a witty quip or inspiring a gag. This animation studio is known for developing deep characters, in both their personalities and designs. Thanks to Pixar’s brilliant team of writers and the talented voice artists who made these images into fully-fleshed individuals, we have a bunch of characters to root for and giggle along with. Here are the ones I find as most hilarious.
