Pixar News: Untitled 2013 Release; Austin Fetes Lasseter
Disney has scheduled an untitled 3D movie from Pixar for release in theaters Nov. 27, 2013.
According to a report on Deadline.com, the release will be an original feature and not a sequel. No other details on the film have been confirmed, though speculation runs high that the film will be a dinosaur-themed project, the next film from director Pete Docter or a project about the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
Pixar has Cars 2 due out this Friday, June 24, with Brave scheduled for next June and Monsters University, the prequel to Monsters, Inc., for June 2013.
In other Pixar news, the writer-oriented Austin Film Festival has announced that Pixar and Disney Animation chief creative officer John Lasseter will receive this year’s Extraordinary Contributions to Filmmaking Award.
