Meet The 5 Major Characters From ‘Inside Out’

Inside Out - 5 Emotions

The premise of Pixar’s next feature film, Inside Out, is easily one of the most creative we have seen from the studio. The story takes place inside the mind of a young girl named Riley, where we will meet the five characters that represent her emotions: Joy, Anger, Sadness, Disgust, and Fear. Although the film’s plot surrounds Riley, the emotions will be the true main characters, led by Joy, described by director Pete Docter as the emotion most significant to Riley. Get to know all five emotions after the break! [Read more…]

‘Toy Story 4′ Officially Announced, Heading To Theaters In 2017

Toy Story

The Toy Story franchise is perhaps Pixar’s most important franchise. After all, it was the original Toy Story that launched the animation studio into the spotlight. In 2010, 15 years after the first film, Toy Story 3 concluded the trilogy, and was only the third ever animated film nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. In the years since, we have seen a mixture of Toy Story shorts and TV specials, but the question of whether we would ever see a fourth film remained. That has been answered today, as Toy Story 4 has been officially announced. Find more details after the break! [Read more…]

Inside Out is one of Pixar’s most highly-anticipated films in years for a number of reasons. The film is the first project from director Pete Docter, whose last film Up was a major hit with both critics and audiences around the world. Its release will also be two years following Monsters University, the last feature film from the studio, which amounts to the longest wait we have had to endure for a feature-length Pixar film since the two year wait between Toy Story 2 (Nov. 1999) and Monsters, Inc. (Nov. 2001). We have waited quite a long while for a teaser trailer for Inside Out, and it is finally here. Watch the ingenious footage after the break! [Read more…]

Pixar is focused on producing original films next year, with Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur both slated to arrive in theaters in 2015.

It is scheduled to arrive in 2016, and although we do not have many details about its story, we now know that it will feature a small reunion for two actors from The Wire. [Read more…]

Watch: First Clip From Pixar’s Short ‘Lava’

LAVA

Pixar’s shorts often feature ideas that are more bold than those seen in the studio’s feature films. The shorts allow Pixar to experiment with new technology, while also providing its talent with a space to be more creative. Given that the shorts do not provide Disney and Pixar with much of a financial benefit, the short films are the perfect avenue to take more risks. The animation studio’s next short, Lava, is a musical that stars a volcano searching for love – sound unique enough for you? Watch the first clip from the short after the break! [Read more…]
