Over the years, Pixar has increased the number of its employees in order to better manage the building scope of its films. This expansion has not yet allowed them to release more than one feature film in a year, though. There have been a number of times in the past few years that two Pixar films were scheduled to bow in theaters in the same year, but dates were eventually shuffled. Pete Docter‘s Inside Out and Andrew Stanton‘s Finding Dory are currently slated for 2015, so we may finally see two releases in a year from Pixar soon. Disney just announced the release dates for four Pixar films that are scheduled to hit from 2016 to 2018, which means two more films have been scheduled to arrive in one year. The day where we will see two Pixar films in one year is now rapidly approaching.

Next Pixar Short To Be Scored By ‘Eternal Sunshine’ Composer Jon Brion

I found various clues scattered throughout the blog, such as a Pizza Planet reference and a supposed hint at Monsters University. While there was strong evidence that Rainy City Tales was throwing us hints about the next Pixar short, a new article from The Playlist seems to solidify the blog’s nature even further, confirming that the short film will revolve around an umbrella and will be scored by great composer Jon Brion.

Exclusive: Viral Marketing Reveals New Pixar Short?
Throughout its success with feature-length films, Pixar has maintained focus on short films as well. Last year’s La Luna was arguably one of the best shorts from the animation studio, receiving widespread critical praise and an Oscar nomination. Around this time last year, we knew that the stunning Enrico Casarosa-directed short would be the studio’s next – but, what is to be the next Pixar short? We have come across some viral marketing that may very well allude to what it may be. [Read more…]
