As you’re all probably aware, the Lamp’s satellite studio, Pixar Canada, recetly opened in Vancouver. You might also be aware that they’ll exclusively focus on making content based on their “legacy characters” (AKA characters from past films) for TV, online and theme park distribution – mainly shorts.
We know right now that Pixar Canada will initially focus on producing Cars Toons and the rumored Toy Story Toons, but there’s so much potential in what we’ll see. Here’s a preview of the upcoming Cars Toons, Aviator Mater: pixarplanet.com/blog/woodys-news-round-up-042310
So the question is: What films or specific characters do you want to see explored in Pixar Canada projects?
lizardgirl- I’m almost 100% sure we’ll see some Monsters, Inc. stuff around pre-release of the sequel. As for pre-MI, I don’t know, but that sounds super cool!!
I agree with you, bring on Monstropolis, I’ve been looking forward to something like that since… Mike’s New Car! When the Monsters, Inc. Blu-ray was announced I was hoping they’d put some bonus MI short in there, but this more than makes up for it!
I’m still hoping for A Bug’s Life since it’s been listed on their website, simply because Pixar has not used those characters for quite a long time. To be honest though, I’ve gotten so caught up now with all the hype for Toy Story 3 that I haven’t been watching A Bug’s Life (or most of the other Pixar films for that matter).
Flik-E- Yeah, me too! Same as with Monsters, Inc. when they announced the A Bug’s Life Blu-ray I got hopeful for new ABL material. “The First Draft” was really cool, but I wanted to see some new adventures. I even have a rough draft of my own idea which I think is perfect. Anyway, it’s not a short, but they’ll be bringing back Heimlich soon! Here’s how: pixarplanet.com/blog/snazzy-pixa … d-of-color
I’m sure they’re going to have new Monsters Inc. shorts now that they’ve announced Monsters Inc. 2. I would also love to see those Toy Story Toons cause I know that they’re going to be more up to date with the sequels.
I agree 100% with that statement. On-topic, I think the Toy Story Toons that were hinted at will be Pixar Canada’s first big thing. They’ll probably be making the DVD-exclusive shorts everyone loves also.
So far, I like “Air Mater”, “Small Fry”, and “Time Travel Mater”. Pixar Canada shorts are fun, but I kind of hope there won’t only beCars Toon: Mater’s Tall Tales and Toy Story Toons. I mean, after a while, wouldn’t it make a little more sense to make shorts for the films that can’t really sustain another full-length feature? I’d like to see some a bug’s toons, Monsters, Toons, Ratatoons, etc. Other than that, I like the ideas for shorts you all would like to see.
