Upcoming Pixar Projects Unveiled at CinemaCon

CinemaCon-150

Attendees at yesterday’s CinemaCon event in Las Vegas learned all about Pixar’s upcoming animated slate and found out details about the sequel to Disney’s Muppets movie. Here is the Pixar slate:

The Good Dinosaur. Directed by Bob Peterson with co-director Peter Sohn and producer John Walker. This comedy takes a look at what happens “if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct?” It will be released in the U.S. on May 30, 2014.

Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside The Mind. 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.” The film’s release date is June 19, 2015.

Untitled Pixar Movie About 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. No release date yet.

Disney also announced that director James Bobin will return to direct the sequel to the 2011 hit Muppets movie, based on a script by Bobin and Nicholas Stoller. No release date has been announced.
