Posted by Simoa • May 7, 2017

Ever since I joined Upcoming Pixar in 2014, I’ve been so excited to contribute to this long running site, bringing you all the latest news and updates from our favorite animation studio! Adding Nia’s own brilliant perspective as my cowriter was a great move in the right direction, and now we’re welcoming our third writer! Her name is Joanna. Here’s a brief introduction:

Hi, I’m Joanna and I discovered my love for Pixar after seeing Up in 2009. I have now lost count of the number of times Pixar has brought a smile to my face. Since 2012, I’ve run a Pixar tumblr ( where I make gifs and share my enthusiasm with fellow fans. I’m looking forward to contributing to the site and getting to eagerly await Pixar’s upcoming movies in good company!

I have absolutely no doubt that Joanna will be a valued addition to Upcoming Pixar. Nia, myself, and all of us here are so eager to have her join. We know you will be too!

Introducing Simoa, Our New Writer!

Pixar Planet, Pixar Planet, Upcoming Pixar, Upcoming Pixar

Posted by Brkyo614 • August 2, 2014

Back in 2012, Martin asked me to take over his writing duties at Upcoming Pixar. I couldn’t have been more honored, and the past two-and-a-half years running the blog have been an exciting and educational journey. Now, as I prepare to enter a new chapter in my life, it’s my turn to pass the torch.

Today, I’d like to welcome Simoa, our new lead writer at Upcoming Pixar! I have no doubt that she’ll be able to uphold the blog’s 10-year legacy while still bringing her own fresh voice to the table. Here’s a quick introduction from Simoa herself:

I’ve been a Pixar fan since I was a kid, but I didn’t come to truly love it until May of 2010. I watched Up for the first time and that kickstarted my interest in animation as a storytelling medium. It’s one of the most important movies of my life, and Ellie became my favorite Pixar character of all time. Soon I began seeking out all the short films I hadn’t seen as well as feature films I avoided. I’m really excited to be part of the Upcoming Pixar team, and hope to bring my unique perspective to an already awesome site!

While I’ll still be helping out behind the scenes, this will be my last official blog post. I can’t wait to see where Upcoming Pixar and Pixar Animation Studios go in the coming years — I think we have a bright future to look forward to!

Thanks for reading,
Bryan (Bryko)

All you have to do is delete your Pixar Planet cookies and voila! it should work again. I had an issue logging in through Safari 3.0.4 on my Mac, and others had trouble with Internet Explorer. It seems Firefox was resistant until now.
