Pixar announces two upcoming films

Pixar fans have two new reasons to get excited. The famed animation studio announced an upcoming movie about dinosaurs and another about the inner workings of the human brain over the weekend, according to a release from Disney's D23 Expo.

At D23 on Friday, Pixar also revealed details about a new animated “Toy Story” short. “Small Fry,” featuring the character Buzz Lightyear, will premiere before “The Muppets” movies. And then on Saturday, the famed studio unveiled the loglines for the two forthcoming feature films.

The first project is about what might have happened had dinosaurs not been wiped out, and is due out November 2013. Pixar released a description of the film:

“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’).”

The second movie, to be released in May 2014, will get inside the human brain.

“From director Pete Docter (‘Up,’ ‘Monsters, Inc.’) and producer Jonas Rivera (‘Up’), the inventive new film will take you to a place that everyone knows, but no one has ever seen: the world inside the human mind.”

Pixar's next film is “Brave,” about a Scottish princess who has to display some courage after she goes against the wishes of her parents and inadvertently puts the kingdom in jeopardy as a result. The full-length feature will hit theaters in June.

  1. Dino

    Im all up for the Dino one but if it's going to have things like pople riding on dinosaurs, then I'm out. Dino's should do what they were ment to do, DOMINATE OVER ALL! Even if that means that the humans end up dying, well then boo hoo for the humans! We deserve it for destroying the earth like we do and being so weak and helpless! And yes, I do know that this is Pixar and that little kids will want to be watching it, but that's just it! If little kids will watch tv, than why not actually teach them something instead of rotting their brains out!?! I means seriously, if dinosaurs where still alive today, we would all be dead right? I mean, I'm all up for the real stuff, but if you want to go right on ahead and waste all of your time, money, and also electricity, on making a FAKE film than go right on ahead but I'm ain't paying for it! I know how how to survive and that's enough for me!

    The next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesn't fail me as much as this one. After all, I know it was my choice to read, but I genuinely thought you'd have something helpful to say. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something you could fix if you were not too busy searching for attention.

    Oasis, Lindsey Lohan, SOTC women and Karl Lagerfeld are going to sue Pixar for using their images in the dinosaur movie.

      I think the dinosaurs should sue for making THEM look like Oasis, LL, SOTC and Lagerfeld.
