Woody, Buzz and the rest of the Toy Story gang almost visited their birthplace of Taiwan and had an encounter with Transforming robots in Toy Story 3. This was before Pixar came abroad the project, and the story greatly changed into what we know today. But new concept art has emerged, and offers a look at what could have been.
Back in 2004, Disney and Pixar were feuding over the rights to certain Pixar created characters, with Disney forming a new company called Circle 7 Animation. The studio assigned a creative team to come up with a concept for Toy Story 3, which was starting to move forward without Pixar's involvement. Over the years, the plot to this proposed sequel has been revealed in bits and pieces. It would have revolved around the Buzz Lightyear toy malfunctioning and being recalled back to Tawain.
Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan have signed on to voice the parents of 11-year-old Riley (Kaitlyn Dias) in Disney and Pixar's upcoming animated comedy Inside Out. We caught a brief glimpse of the parents in the first trailer that debuted in October, but we may see even more of them when the second trailer debuts on Wednesday, December 10. The story is set inside the mind of Riley, as we follow the emotions operating inside her head, Joy (voiced by Amy Poehler), Anger (voiced by Lewis Black), Fear (voiced by Bill Hader), Sadness (voiced by Phyllis Smith) and Disgust (voiced by Mindy Kaling).
During an interview with USA Today, writer-director Pete Docter revealed that the parents play an important part of the story, since Riley is seen through their eyes. Here's what the filmmaker had to say.

The story centers on Arlo, a teenage dinosaur who befriends a young human boy named Spot. The movie hit a snag in August 2013 when original director Bob Peterson was dismissed, which caused Pixar to push the animated adventure from its original May 30, 2014 release date all the way to November 25, 2015. Over the past year, new director Peter Sohn has been reworking the story, and while the basic premise remains the same, the filmmaker revealed to The Los Angeles Times that a lot has changed.
"The heart of the story remains the same. It's always been about this young dinosaur growing up. But the world itself has changed a lot. Nature has become a character."

In addition, Mashable has also debuted a brief video intro for Mindy Kaling's Disgust, and the actress herself sheds new light on her character in a brief interview.

"Disgust is very protective of Riley. She has high expectations for everyone around her and isn't very patient. Disgust is also very put-together because appearances matter to her."

Pixar is introducing fans to the main characters of their upcoming animated comedy Inside Out with a series of new posters and previews that are being released throughout the week, starting with today's one-sheet and featurette that feature Sadness, voiced by Phyllis Smith (The Office).
The story centers on an 11-year-old girl named Riley, who moves from her Midwestern hometown to San Francisco after her father gets a new job. The film takes us inside Riley's head, and the emotions that guide her, such as Sadness, Joy (voiced by Amy Poehler), Fear (voiced by Bill Hader), Anger (voiced by Lewis Black) and Disgust (voiced by Mindy Kaling), who all live in a "control center" in Riley's mind.
Phyllis Smith shared new details about her character Sadness in an interview with Mashable, where all five character posters will debut throughout the week. Here's what the actress had to say about how Sadness is always thinking ahead. »
Much in the way that Friday Night Lights isn’t just a show about football, CBS’ The McCarthys isn’t just a show about basketball. It’s also a show about crazy people.
Thursday’s series premiere introduced viewers to the titular family, a six-piece ensemble of basketball-obsessed lunatics — save for gay son Ronny (the impossibly likable Tyler Ritter), who couldn’t shoot a basket to save his life. Even though he does in the premiere. Twice.
Feeling stifled by his overbearing family, Ronny decides to accept a new job and move »
If there’s one thing animated movies have over their live action counterparts it’s their ability to craft a meticulous attention to detail in which everything that appears on screen is there for a reason. Of all the animation studios out there, Pixar has justly earned a reputation for cramming in a wealth of hidden details for the eagle-eyed viewer to spot.
Counting up all the easter eggs in Pixar’s filmography is an immense task – considering that they already had several movies in the pipeline from day one, it’s understandable that right from the beginning they found the time to populate their films with little visual touches referencing back and forth across their body of work.
From the frequent appearance of the phrase A113, an inside joke referring to the classroom in which John Lasseter, Brad Bird and other Pixar staff were taught at the California Institute of the Arts, »

While fans continue to wait for the first footage from Pixar's The Good Dinosaur, Disney has released a brief preview video that shows director Peter Sohn drawing the main character, a dinosaur named Arlo, from scratch.
Peter Sohn was originally set as the co-director alongside Bob Peterson, until Peterson was removed from the project in August 2013. This lead the studio to move the release date from May 30, 2014 to November 25, 2015. Our report from August 2013 stated that Pixar was looking to replace Bob Peterson with another filmmaker, while Peter Sohn remained on as the co-director. Now it seems that Peter Sohn is taking over as the sole director on the project.
The last we heard about The Good Dinosaur was back in August, when voice cast member John Lithgow revealed that the script has received a complete rewrite, and that he is going in to record new dialogue. The story centers on a family of dinosaurs, »
Following the first look at 11-year-old Riley back in August, Pixar has finally released the first trailer for Inside Out. The video actually begins with a montage of footage from Pixar hits such as Toy Story, Monsters Inc., Up and The Incredibles, with each scene highlighting a particular emotion. This segues nicely into the inner-workings of Riley's mind, where we meet all of the emotions that reside within her.
Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions »
