I'm glad to hear original projects from Pixar instead of them "selling out."

Death is a common theme in arts. And the setting and plot of this will be completely different (about the second thing I can only guess, but I'm pretty sure)


Yeah, totally! My comment was jokingly poking at uncalled comparisons that Brave got drawn with How to train your flying lizard, and whatnot :mrgreen: There are literally a billion of directions this movie can take, so it's going to be curious what Unkrich is developing. Real-life setting (aka Rio) or fantasy-laden (aka Brave)? Contemporary or historical or futuristic?Another female protagonist? Possibilities are endless!

Oh, I get you, then. Yes, it would be similar to those comparisons.

I think Día de los Muertos (in original Spanish) could be a nice and attractive title.

I am SO excited! I've been fascinated by Dia de los Muertos ever since that Wild Thornberrys episode. I can't wait to see what they do with this!
Great. Now I have guilt!

Sounds great, but seems like it could run into a similar issue as Newt: Guillermo del Toro is already working on an animated Day of the Dead movie with the creator of the Nickelodeon show El Tigre.

With the way Disney changes titles these days I bet it will be changed to a single word title. If they don't go with The Bear and the Bow I can't see them sticking with Dia de los Musrtos.

I hope Lee gets to do the Tumblr(sp?) pic thing again like he did a few months ago before it disappeared. After reading what his next film would be about I would keep checking it out. Especially when it gets closer to the release date.

I really hope that's not the case and they continue with the film. Plus, I've never even heard of Reel FX.

Maybe Pixar will be able to get away with it because their film probably won't be a "Romeo and Juliet-style love story" set within the holiday. At least, I really doubt it will be. It does still seem oddly coincidental that they're both working on a film about this holiday, though :/

Well, Del Toro is Mexican.

I really hope they can sort this out. This is the Pixar project I'm looking forward the most, at least until we know more about the Mind film.

I'm very curious about this. I'm not too familiar with the Day of the Dead, but the concept is really interesting.

There's a celebration of it where I live like every year, but I've never participated. I can't wait to see what Pixar does with it.

Pixar has captured France and Scotland fully in films, and now they're doing Mexico. This is great news :D Also, for some reason I get the feeling this could be the next Pixar franchise, with at least one sequel.
