Disney•Pixar Announces The Good Dinosaur and Dia de los Muertos Movie
April 24, 2012
Disney•Pixar has just provided updates on a number of projects at today's CinemaCon presentation:
• First announced last August, the upcoming Bob Peterson dinosaur film now has the title The Good Dinosaur and will be released on May 30, 2014. The film is described as follows:
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”).
• Oscar-winning Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich's upcoming project with producer Darla Anderson will be about the holiday of Dia de los Muertos.
From director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson, the filmmaking team behind the Academy Award®-winning "Toy Story 3," comes a wholly original Pixar Animation Studios film that delves into the vibrant holiday of Día de los Muertos.
• The still-untitled Pete Docter film that takes you inside the mind has been pushed from May 30, 2014 to June 19, 2015, and they're still trying to figure out a title for that one. It's describes as follows:
Pixar takes audiences on incredible journeys into extraordinary worlds: from the darkest depths of the ocean to the top of the tepui mountains in South America; from the fictional metropolis of Monstropolis to a futuristic fantasy of outer space. 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.
