Ever since the release of Up, many of us (translation: I) have been anxiously awaiting for Pete Docter’s next directorial effort. His next film was announced at the D23 Expo two years ago. It was described as taking us inside the mind of a girl, with emotions embodied as characters. While we had a very brief synopsis, we still did not have an official title. A few months ago, there were reports that the film had been given a title, but had not yet been announced to the public. Today, in conjunction with CinemaCon, Disney/Pixar has officially titled the film Inside Out.
News On Pete Docter's 'Untitled Film That Takes You Inside The Mind'
First Look: Concept Art For ‘The Good Dinosaur,’Inside The Mind’ Film, And ‘Dia de los Muertos’ Film
This past year has been the busiest that we have seen from Pixar, with the release of Brave, La Luna, PartySaurus Rex, Finding Nemo 3D, Monsters, Inc. 3D and the opening of Cars Land in Disney California Adventure. On New Year’s Eve, the animation studio is looking directly ahead, as a number of original films are in the works. Pixar has shared brand new concept artwork for several of its upcoming films over the next few years, which you can take a peek at after the break!
There have been a rash untitled Pixar films that have been announced over the last few years – The Untitled Film About Dinosaurs (now called The Good Dinosaur), The Untitled Dia de los Muertos Film, and The Untitled Film That Takes You Inside The Mind. From the little that we know about these three films, I have found the Mind film to be the most intriguing, mostly because it is to be directed by Pete Docter, who sat in the director’s chair for Monsters, Inc. and Up. We had been unsure of when the film would receive its title, but a report has just emerged that the Docter film will be called The Inside Out.
Each year at CinemaCon, movie theater owners gather to get a preview of coming films from movie studios. This year, Pixar used the Disney presentation to announce the title for its previously untitled film about dinosaurs. Additionally, Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich, who was rumored to be working on a brand new Pixar film, is now confirmed to be working on a film due in 2015 or 2016. Get a rundown on the big news after the jump! [Read more...]
John Lasseter recently sat down with Charlie Rose for an extensive interview about Pixar, Steve Jobs, and Disney. He speaks at length about the beginnings of Pixar and how George Lucas sold the company to Steve Jobs, how important it is for the studio to focus on quality, and how animation is simply a medium for telling stories (just like in live-action films). Towards the end of the interview, Lasseter briefly describes Pixar’s upcoming slate – Brave, Monsters University, The Untitled Dinosaur Movie, and The Untitled Movie That Takes You Inside The Mind. The most mind-bending of those is easily the Pete Docter-directed Mind film and now we have a few more details on how the film will work. [Read more...]
Pixar brought its “A” game to D23 this year, showcasing Brave and Monsters University, while also announcing two brand new films. While we do not know much about Pete Docter’s 2014 film that has to do with how the mind works, we did see and hear some minor tidbits about the studio’s 2013 dinosaur film. As it is early in development, the film remains untitled as well. Director Bob Peterson, who is making his leap into solo directing for the first time, talked briefly about his inspiration for the film’s concept. Read on for more on this mysterious dinosaur film!

The huge Walt Disney Studios panel just let out here at the D23 Expo, and if Disney was trying to leave an impression with media and fans, they truly succeeded. Previewing films from Marvel Studios, their animation and live-action branches, as well as Pixar, Disney brought out a ridiculous amount of clips, directors, and writers to talk about their upcoming films. We were provided with clips and artwork from Pixar’s 2012 and 2013 films, Brave and Monsters University, respectively. Pixar also surprised the D23 attendees with the announcement of two brand new (and completely original) films – one involving dinosaurs and the other focusing on how the mind works. Read on for a quick recap of the fantastic presentation! [Read more...]
