Attending the D23 Expo was a last-minute decision. Jerrod was already going to the show to cover it for us, but once all the Pixar panels were announced I had a feeling this year would be special. Well, that was an understatement. At D23, we were shown previously unseen footage and artwork from Brave, learned new details about the story and the characters in Monsters University and the new Toy Story Toon, Small Fry, and were surprised with the announcement of 2 brand new (and totally original) Pixar films. That has to be a record for Pixar news over just a few days! [Read more...]

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.
