Thomas Newman to Score ‘The Good Dinosaur’!

Soundtrack, The Good Dinosaur

Posted by Brkyo614 • March 16, 2013

Of all the composers behind Pixar’s musical scores, Thomas Newman may be one of the most beloved; his work on Finding Nemo and WALL-E brought unparalleled emotional depth to those films. So it’s exciting to hear that he will once again be collaborating with the studio for The Good Dinosaur!

At a Le Moyne and Syracuse University event, Newman revealed that The Good Dinosaur‘s score will be his next project. He also spoke about the challenge of writing music for animation: “[Writing for] animation is a lot different. In live-action, you can settle on a mood or tone that lasts for a long time. In animation, the tone is shifting every two or three seconds. There’s a lot more writing, a lot more notes. It can be scary.”

His music will undoubtedly bring plenty of life to Bob Peterson’s directorial debut, which is set to release on May 30, 2014. Read the synopsis below:

What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? This hilarious, heartfelt and original tale is directed by Bob Peterson (co-director/writer, Up; writer, Finding Nemo) and produced by John Walker (The Incredibles, The Iron Giant).

Disney Dates 2015 Pixar Film!

Dia De Los Muertos, Monsters University, Pete Docter, The Good Dinosaur

Posted by Brkyo614 • October 15, 2012

In a batch of updates to their feature film release schedule this morning, Disney announced that a currently untitled Pixar project will hit theatres on Wednesday, November 25, 2015.

This new addition to Pixar’s lineup is the most distant yet, with Pete Docter’s Mind movie coming on June 19 of the same year and Monsters University and The Good Dinosaur set for June 21, 2013 and May 30, 2014, respectively. Though a title wasn’t included with the announcement, it’s fairly safe to assume that the film is the Dia de los Muertos-centric production that was teased at CinemaCon.

Pixar has struggled to launch two films in the same year for nearly a decade. Each time, though, plans consistently fell though due to the cancellation of Newt and numerous release date shifts. With this newly announced film and Pete Docter’s project both scheduled for 2015, could this be the studio’s first successful attempt? Stay tuned.
