^How do you suppose that? We know nothing about it virtually! Besides the setting and theme.

Lee talked about the film recently! Apparently he's pitching story ideas to the Brain Trust. The interview says it took place "mid-May," so that could mean the meeting is this week or next, depending on your idea of "mid."

Slashfilm implies that Pixar chose the project partly because TS3 did so well in Mexico. Which isn't a great reason for making a film, but if TS3's high box office got the folks at Pixar thinking about different stories and they happened to land on a good story, I guess that works.

idk if it's the main reason, I doubt it's the ONLY reason. But it defintely is a perk.

Like with Princess and the Frog. A side reason it was made was becaues people complained lack of an African or African American leading lady. And it makes sense monetary wise, little girls lik ehaving dolls they look like/relate to. Think of all the merchandise you could sell!

Study merchandise and sociology, it's true.

Anyway, it sounds like a guess the magazine is making.

Probably Unkrich fell in love with the art of the holiday, or he suddenly thought of a story set during the celebration on a sleepless night.

Sometimes people like to attribute every decision made in the film business to a marketing move, when there are other things to it.

New art. I think I recognize the artist, but I'm not 100% sure:
