Announced Today: Two New Pixar Films!


Today at the D23 Expo, the talent and concept behind Pixar’s much talked about mystery projects (known only as release dates) were publicly revealed!

Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs and Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside the Mind may not be real titles, but they sure do reveal a lot about the upcoming, original projects currently brewing in the Emeryville studio. No longer must fans speculate; check out what’s behind the previously revealed schedule.

DINOSAUR PROJECT (November 27, 2013)
Directed by Bob Peterson, Co-directed by Pete Sohn
Produced by John Walker (The Incredibles)
Concept: What if the fateful meteor that killed the dinosaurs never struck Earth? This project takes us into a world where dinos and humans co-exist, explaining the intriguing concept art we saw ages ago.

Directed by Pete Docter, Co-directed by Ronnie del Carmen
Produced by Jonas Rivera (Up)
Pete Docter’s next project explores a world that we all know, but we’ve never seen: the human mind. When I spoke to the Monsters, Inc. director earlier this year, he hinted at this ambitious project. They’re still ironing out the details, but it sounds like it could be Pixar’s Inception.

Set for the Fall of 2013 and the Summer of 2014, these original projects are sure to keep fans on the edge of their seats. As exciting as they are, we must not forget that Brave lands in theatres on June 22, 2012 and Monsters University scares its way into megaplexes everywhere on June 21, 2013.

Thoughts on the upcoming films?
