Pixar Titles Bob Peterson’s Dinosaur Movie ‘Frozen’

22 December 2011 1:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Walt Disney Studios has announced the title for Pixar's Holiday 2013 movie -- Frozen. I'm kind of surprised that the MPAA approved the title considering there was a popular indie movie released under the same title only two years ago, Adam Green's horror thriller Frozen. When the project was first announced at the D23 Expo, they revealed a joke working title (complete with logo seen above): "The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs". More details after the jump. Previously: Here is the official plot synopsis from Disney: What if that life-changing asteroid missed Earth? Director Bob Peterson’s hilarious tale depicts a world where dinosaurs never went extinct. And here is a bit of information on the filmmakers behind the movie: Bob Peterson started at Pixar as an additional animator and layout artist on Toy Story, and worked on the story team for A Bug's Life and Toy Story 2. »

Easter Eggs: Robin and More Hidden in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Trailer, Pixar Nods in ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’

21 December 2011 7:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Chances are you saw the new trailer [2] for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises and didn't catch Robin the boy wonder or a reference back to the very beginning of the trilogy: Batman Begins. And you probably also saw Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol in IMAX but somehow missed the hidden Pixar easter eggs that Ratatouille/The Incredibles director Brad Bird hid within the film. Aren't you glad we're here to point them out to you? Find the easer eggs, after the jump. [3] A113 [4]: What started as an inside joke of CalArts alumni (a reference to the classroom number that was used by Animation students, including John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Brad Bird, Pete Docter) has been present in not only every Pixar film, but Disney movies, Iron Giant, The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, Powerpuffgirls and Tinytoon Adventures. [5] Director Brad Bird has put the reference in every project »

Pixar’s Next Film from the Doctor Goes Inside a Girl’s Mind?

Pixar’s Next Film from the Doctor Goes Inside a Girl’s Mind?

The Pixar/Disney team has taken us into many strange new worlds where everyday objects are given personality (Toys, Cars) but now we’re going to see emotions as characters.

Pixar’s top guy, John Lasseter, shared some of Pixars’s future plans during an interview on the Charlie Rose show recently, revealing that director Pete Docter’s new untitled film takes place inside the mind of a girl, with her emotions being the characters.

Docter has previously brought us Monsters, Inc and Up so I’m willing to see where he goes with this, because I loved those other two films, and I was shocked to find myself like Up, which really didn’t seem to offer much when you just listened to the basic plot. There’s no word at this time on if ‘girl »

John Lasseter Provides Some Details on Pete Docter’s Next Pixar Project

7 December 2011 3:13 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Director Pete Docter isn’t really saying what’s going on in his head for his next project, but Pixar’s chief creative officer John Lasseter has an idea. During D23 Expo this past August, Docter and producer Jonas Rivera (“Up,” “Toy Story 2”) appeared on stage to announce “The Untitled Movie That Takes You Inside The Mind.” At the time, Docter described it as a movie that explores “what we think, dream and reason.” In an interview with Charlie Rose, Lasseter provided a little more detail on Doctor’s next project. “Pete Docter, from ‘Monsters, Inc.’ and ‘Up’ is doing a new film that takes place inside of a girl’s mind and it is about her emotions as characters, and that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen,” he explained. Here is the official premise provided by Disney/Pixar: Pixar takes audiences on incredible journeys into extraordinary worlds: »

New Pixar Film Takes Place Inside Girl's Mind

6 December 2011 7:28 PM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Back in August, Disney revealed that director Pete Docter (Up, Monsters Inc) was working on a new Pixar film. The studio went on to reveal the cryptic plot synopsis. Plot: Pixar takes audiences on incredible journeys into extraordinary worlds: from the darkest depths of the ocean to the top of the tepui mountains in South America; from the fictional metropolis of Monstropolis to a futuristic fantasy of outer space. The inventive new film will take you to a place that everyone knows, but no one has ever seen: the world inside the human mind. Now, John Lasseter has revealed a few more details about the new film, which is set to hit theaters on May 30th, 2014. He said: "Pete Docter, from 'Monsters, Inc' and 'Up,' is doing a new film that takes place inside of a girl's mind and it is about her emotions as characters, and that »

John Lasseter says new Pixar film 'takes place inside of a girl's mind'

6 December 2011 6:07 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

While appearing on Charlie Rose last Friday, Pixar and Disney animation guru John Lasseter let slip a tantalizing new detail about one of Pixar’s upcoming films. Previously, director Pete Docter (Up, Monsters Inc.) announced at Disney’s D23 expo in August that his new film would take place in “the world inside your own mind.” Last week, Lasseter revealed that the mind in question will be one of a young girl.

Pete Docter, from Monsters Incorporated and Up is doing a new film that takes place inside of a girl’s mind,” Lasseter told Rose, “and it is about her emotions as characters. »

The Next Great Pixar Characters Might Come from Our Own Human Emotions

6 December 2011 2:35 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

They've covered everything from insects to toys to monsters to fish to robots to rats to a family of superheroes, so what does the future hold for Pixar and their upcoming original characters? After back-to-back sequels (Cars 2, Toy Story 3) Pixar will once again return to original storytelling with this year's Brave, and looking ahead Pete Docter's (Monsters, Inc, Up) mysterious new film might just introduce Pixar's most ambitious set of characters yet: our own human emotions. We've known for a little while now that Docter's new film -- due in theaters on either November 27th, 2013 or May 30th, 2014 -- takes place within the human mind, but that's all we've got. There's no title, no cast and no images. But during an appearance on the...

The Characters In Pixar’s Ambitious “Mind” Project Will Be A Girl’s Emotions

6 December 2011 2:02 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

During Disney’s D23 Expo this past summer, we got word on new projects from Pixar. In light of the horrendous Cars 2, these especially timely announcements were a welcome remind of the creativity churning in the studio. We learned of a new film from Up co-director Bob Peterson, going under The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs. It was described as, “What if that life-changing asteroid missed Earth? Director Bob Peterson’s hilarious tale depicts a world where dinosaurs never went extinct.” That will arrive on November 27th, 2013, but we got word on another film, from the other Up co-director.

Pete Docter‘s  “inventive new film” was described as an exploration of a “world that everyone knows, but no one has seen: inside the human mind.” We finally got a few new details on the project, thanks to a recent appearance by John Lasseter on The Charlie Rose Show. (via »

John Lasseter Reveals New Pete Docter Pixar Film Takes Place In a Young Girl's Mind

6 December 2011 12:18 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you're tired of the recent rash of Pixar sequels (because, really, who hasn't been longing to find out about Mike and Sully's monstrous college adventures?), then you're very much in luck. Not only is next summer's "Brave" an all new property, part loving homage to Celtic myhtology, part feminist parable (we hope), but in the next few years we also have a new film about man's coexistence with dinosaurs (directed by Bob Peterson) and, even more tantalizingly, a film directed by "Up"'s Pete Docter and set inside the human mind. Pixar/Disney bigwig John Lasseter was recently on "Charlie Rose" (via Slashfilm) and spilled a few more details about the secretive project. Right after the project was announced at D23, we announced that Michael Arndt (of "Toy Story 3" and "Little Miss Sunshine" fame) would be writing the screenplay and that it would be about the formation of ideas. »

John Lasseter Talks Pixar's Mind Movie

6 December 2011 11:03 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Back in August, at the Disney D23 event, Pixar stalwart and Monsters, Inc/Up director Pete Docter announced that he and producer Jonas Rivera were hard at work on a new film for the studio, due in 2014 and currently called The Untitled Movie That Takes You Inside The Mind. Now John Lasseter has revealed a tiny extra snippet about the plot.Talking on the Charlie Rose show, Lasseter broached the subject of Pixar’s upcoming slate, which includes mythological adventure Brave, prequel Monsters University, The Untitled Dinosaur Movie (being directed by Docter’s Up collaborator, Bob Peterson) and the Mind pic.While he didn’t give away much (this is, after all, John Lasseter, a man who guards his company’s future film secrets the same way Jj Abrams does), he did say a little bit, including mentioning the setting.

Pete Docter’s Next Pixar Film Goes Inside a Girl’s Mind to Explore Her Emotions

6 December 2011 10:03 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Back in August, we reported that Up and Monsters, Inc. director Pete Docter had Pixar's strangest and possibly most ambitious movie lined-up.  The film's logline claims Docter "will take you to a place that everyone knows, but no one has ever seen: the world inside the human mind."  In an interview with Charlie Rose last night [via The Pixar Times], Pixar head John Lasseter revealed that the human mind belongs to a girl.  Said Lasseter, the "new film that takes place inside of a girl’s mind and it is about her emotions as characters, and that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen."  Lasseter didn't comment on whether the girl was a child or an adolescent.  Either way, it will be the second Pixar movie featuring a female protagonist (next summer's Brave will be the first). I'm even more excited for Docter's film than I was before, but it's still a ways off. »

Pete Docter’s Next Pixar Film is Set Inside a Young Girl’s Mind

6 December 2011 9:30 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The next film from Monsters, Inc. and Up director Pete Docter is still quite a mystery -- we've known next to nothing about the plot and characters -- hell, we don't even have a title. The movie is likely meant to occupy one of the two dates that Disney and Pixar have penciled in for the next couple years (November 27, 2013 and May 30, 2014), probably the later date. We've heard that  the script is by Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3) and is about "the formation of ideas." That latter point seems pretty spacy, but new comments from Pixar head John Lasseter make things a lot more clear. During an appearance on Charlie Rose [1], Lasseter said, Pete Docter, from Monsters, Inc. and Up, is doing a new film that takes place inside of a girl’s mind and it is about her emotions as characters, and that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. »

A Few More Details on Pete Docter's 'Inside the Mind' Pixar Project

6 December 2011 9:10 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Don't get too excited yet! I hate to jump ahead to hype a 2014 release, since that seems so insanely far away right now, but that's where Pixar's focus is at the moment. The next movie from Pete Docter (director of Monsters Inc, Up) was announced/unveiled at D23 this year, known simply as The Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside the Mind, or Inside the Brain. We don't know much about it at all beyond that, but thanks to a new quote from a Charlie Rose interview (here) with John Lasseter, via The Pixar Times, we now actually have at least a better idea of the characters, and it sounds very intriguing, to say the least. Here's the short quote from Lasseter pulled from his Charlie Rose interview, as found by The Pixar Times: "Pete Docter, from Monsters, Inc. and Up, is doing a new film that takes place »

10 Film Production Companies Doing It The Pixar Way And Making A Difference

14 November 2011 2:55 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The studio system is long gone and as the Hollywood powerhouses reign supreme over the box office, smaller production companies fall by the way side. Yet innovative filmmakers are currently redefining the industry and creating powerful companies of their own, ones which could change cinema for the better as well as possibly competing with these Hollywood heavyweights in the future.

Due to Pixar’s success as a family orientated studio from the mid 90’s onwards, others are catching on to this ultra collaborative notion. Pixar has a large but focused family of filmmakers which work together to produce perfect movies. We’ve all seen glimpses inside the studio with its fuss ball tables and arcade games; they promote creativity and work together for the greater good. There are no egos at Pixar just a unit pushing forward as a team.

Here’s a look at some promising and quite successful »

Av Room: Toy Story 3D Blu-Ray Combo Pack

8 November 2011 1:23 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Toy Story 3D Blu-Ray Combo Pack Walt Disney Home Entertainment 1995 & 2009/Rated G/Running Time 81 Mins List Price: $49.99 – Available November 1, 2011   Back during the Fall of 1995, I had absolutely no interest in seeing Toy Story. Disney had enjoyed tremendous success and a resurgence of quality film-making that began with the 1989 release of The Little Mermaid. Classic Disney quality films were back and the subsequent releases of Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King, secured their new foothold in the industry and at the box-office. Yet the studio was also in danger of becoming a cold corporate entity. For every Beauty and the Beast, their live action division was turning out crappy soulless films like The Three Musketeers or the Pauley Shore vehicle In The Army Now.As the first full length computer animated feature Toy Story had a cold, soulless look to it upon first glance. As impressive as CGI was, »

John Lasseter Gets the 2453rd Star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame

1 November 2011 6:32 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

While Disney was promoting the Blu-ray and DVD release of Cars 2 on November 1, the day Disney/Pixar animation czar John Lasseter happened to get his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, it was still a happy day and a well-deserved honor. Disney's Rich Ross and Sean Bailey, Pixar's Ed Catmull, Bob Peterson and Pete Docter, voice talent Owen Wilson, Bonnie Franklin, Patton Oswalt, John Ratzenberger and Don Rickles, as well as composer Randy Newman, all showed support for the guy Emily Mortimer called a "genius." That he is--no one has delivered a more consistent body of stellar work on film since Walt Disney himself, from the first Oscar-winning CG short, Tin Toy which Pixar owner Steve Jobs approved, saying "make it great," and »

‘Toy Story 3′ Writer Michael Arndt To Tackle Disney’s ‘Phineas And Ferb’

31 October 2011 6:37 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If he doesn't have a key already, they might as well give him one because Michael Arndt--the Oscar winning writer of "Little Miss Sunshine" and one of the co-writers of "Toy Story 3" (that also earned him a nomination)--is going to be a fixture on the Disney lot for the next few years. This year the mouse house has been busy lining up projects for the man, tasking him with "Snow And The Seven" as well the ambitious, under wraps and currently untitled Pete Docter movie over at Pixar about the formation of ideas inside the human mind. Well, he's… »
