At the D23 Expo, Pixar surprised attendees with a screening of the first half of its upcoming television special, Toy Story of Terror, which will air on ABC in October. The preview confirmed that the special would be a send-up of the horror genre, but would also pack in plenty of laughs and heart. A commercial has just been released, providing those who were unable to make it to the Expo their first look at the groundbreaking project. After the break, check out the commercial and a brand new still featuring Mr. Pricklepants and others from the lovable cast of toys!

Monsters University is currently screening for college students and faculty around the country, and judging from the overall consensus, the film is on track to delight audiences across the globe. To raise and maintain awareness of the film’s release, which is less than two months away now, Disney/Pixar has just released the final theatrical trailer.

Major entertainment events are often seen as the go-to place for studios to debut TV spots for films that are still several months out from seeing release. The Super Bowl is the biggest of them all, a venue where many highly-anticipated films provide audiences with a first look. The Kids’ Choice Awards is appealing to studios for the show’s ability to draw the younger crowd, with last year’s presentation bringing in over 11 million viewers. Disney/Pixar chose the awards show, which was held this weekend, to debut a brand new commercial for Monsters University. Watch the TV spot after the break!
The trailers and ads that Disney/Pixar releases for its films in North America deliberately keep more of the film’s plot hidden from audiences. The international trailers, though, are known for being more revealing in the hopes that additional interest is generated in the increasingly important markets overseas. A new Monsters University trailer was recently released for the Japanese market and it gives away far more than its North American counterpart. Take a look at it, if you dare, after the break!
We have been anxiously anticipating a new trailer for Monsters University for months. Aside from the teaser trailer that was released alongside Brave way back in June, the campaign for the film has mostly involved viral marketing which included a ridiculously detailed college website for the fictional school. Today, in conjunction with Toy Fair, where Disney is previewing toys and merchandise tied to the upcoming film, a brand new trailer has been released. Check it out in HD after the break!
The clever viral marketing campaign for Monsters University began with the launch of a website dedicated to the university. It provides a history of the school since its inception in the year 1313, lists school news and events, and lays out a campus map among many other details that are usually found on university websites. A commercial for the school recently debuted, and it once again effectively captures what we have come to expect from a university. Watch the commercial in HD after the break!
Taking into account the fact that Pixar has never released more than one feature film per year, 2012’s privilege of three films from the animation studio is quite special. Yes, both Finding Nemo and Monsters, Inc. are being re-released in 3D and are not brand new films, but having the chance to take in classic Pixar films on the big screen is a wonderful opportunity. Disney/Pixar has just released the new trailer advertising the 3D re-release of Monsters, Inc., which you can watch in HD after the break!
The team behind the Live-Action Toy Story Project has been working for years to develop an authentic experience for viewers who know the original Pixar film backwards and forwards. They have painstakingly recreated the film shot-for-shot using their own toys and materials. To spread word about its recent completion, they have used their live-action footage to mirror the first trailer released for the film back in 1995. Take a look at it after the break!
Late last night, we had the arrival of the first piece of concept art from Pixar’s first prequel film, Monsters University, with the promise of a new teaser trailer. Early this morning, Disney/Pixar quadrupled down on that promise with the release of four different versions of the MU trailer! We won’t spoil the teaser, as it is laugh-on-the-floor hilarious, but the various versions involve slightly different lines from Mike Wazowski (once again voiced by the great Billy Crystal). Watch all the different versions of the teaser after the break, and take a look at the first stills from the film! [Read more…]
Along with our fellow Pixar blogs, we are excited to exclusively premiere the trailers for “Brave: The Video Game.” The video game adaptation of the highly anticipated Pixar film looks to continue the wonderful streak of high-quality games from Disney Interactive based on Pixar properties.
