Woody's News Round-Up! (12/8/12)

Awards Brave News Pete Docter Round-Ups Short Film

Happy December! None of these new stories are earth-shattering, but they still provide a small glimpse into Pixar’s future:

Pixar’s Next Short Nears Completion: Over the past few months, Rainy City Tales 332 has been quietly cataloging the development of an animated short that’s all but confirmed to be from Pixar. Yesterday was the final day of sound mixing for the production, suggesting that the short is essentially complete. With Monsters, Inc.
3D launching in less than two weeks and still without an attached short film, I think it’s possible that the studio could unveil this
mystery short very soon.

Pixar Returning to Netflix: Disney and Pixar movies were once available on Netflix through a deal with Starz, but the expiration of their agreement caused the films to be pulled down earlier this year. This week, however, Disney signed a deal with the video streaming service stating that future films from Disney and Pixar will be available for streaming beginning in 2016. The deal also mentions Disney’s direct-to-DVD output launching on the service in 2013, which may include next year’s Planes. (Via Deadline Hollywood)

More Brave Rewards News: Continuing its recent awards push, Disney has opened up its official awards site, highlighting Disney Animation’s excellent year with pages for Brave, Frankenweenie, Paperman, and Wreck-it Ralph. Additionally, Awards Daily (Via Pixar Times) posted a trio of new awards ads for Brave here.

Possible Title for Pete Docter’s Next Feature: Previously known as The Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside the Mind, Bleeding Cool has learned that the final title for Pete Docter’s 2015 Pixar film could be The Inside Out. There’s still no word from Pixar, so look out for an official announcement in the future.
