Pixar is making a shift on a few upcoming movies and it looks like sequel fever is here to stay.
While sequels to Toy Story, The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, and Cars had been announced in the past, it seems like a few of these titles would be getting new dates after an announcement by the studio on Thursday.
According to the release, Pixar would be shifting Toy Story 4 — which was to mark the release of director John Lasseter to the franchise — to June 15, 2018, pushing it a year back from its intended release. The old date was given to Cars 3, which will now come out on June 16, 2017.
Finding Dory, the Nemo sequel, is still set to be the studio’s solo 2016 release but it seems like we will be waiting even longer for The Incredibles 2, which is set to open on June 21, 2019. Writer/director Brad Bird has already »

The biggest story from Pixar's wide-ranging announcement was that Toy Story 4 will be delayed for a year until 2018.
It's rare for movie news to unite all film fans, but it seems like everyone is in a strop about it.

Last November, Disney made the announcement Toy Story fans had been eagerly awaiting, that Toy Story 4 is finally happening. The studio initially had set a June 16, 2017 release date for the animated sequel, but now those plans have changed, with Disney shifting the release by almost exactly one year, to June 15, 2018. As of now, there are no other movies slated for release on that date, but it will be situated directly between two highly-anticipated sequels, Warner Bros.' Godzilla 2 (June 8, 2018) and Universal's Jurassic World 2 (June 22, 2018).
John Lasseter, director of the original Toy Story and Toy Story 2, will direct Toy Story 4, which opens a new chapter in the lives of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the Toy Story gang. The story was dreamt up by Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich, the storytellers who have been the driving force behind all three Toy Story films. Rashida Jones and »

Disney's upcoming Pixar film slate includes a lot of sequels: Its schedule, announced Thursday, features just two original additions to the Pixar universe out of the studio's next six films. Those two new films are the The Good Dinosaur (out next month) and the previously untitled Day of the Dead–themed Coco, set for 2017. We can now expect Brad Bird's long-awaited The Incredibles sequel to bow in 2019. Unfortunately, Toy Story fans will have to wait a year longer for its fourth installment; Toy Story 4 has been pushed back from 2017 to 2018. Here's what the next four years of Pixar currently looks like: The Good Dinosaur (November 25, 2015) Finding Dory (June 17, 2016) Cars 3 (June 16, 2017) Coco (November 22, 2017) Toy Story 4 (June 15, 2018) The Incredibles 2 (June 21, 2019) Disney's Jack and the Beanstalk imagining, Gigantic, has also been set for March »

New York Comic Con is in full swing this week, and while there, Disney revealed a bunch of release dates for Pixar projects that are due out in the next few years.
"The Incredibles 2" is now expected to hit theaters on June 21, 2019, nearly 15 years after the first flick's release. Fans have been desperate for a sequel ever since "The Incredibles" debuted back in November 2004, and there has been plenty of talk from Pixar and director Brad Bird in the meantime (Disney also revealed at Nycc that most of the main characters, including Samuel L. Jackson's Frozone, are expected to return); now, at long last, moviegoers have a specific date they can circle on their calendars.
"Toy Story 4," meanwhile, has been pushed back from its previously-announced 2017 release date, and will instead debut the following summer. A release date of June 15, 2018 has now been slated, marking the longest drought »

I am not a gun. In 1999, we had fully embraced the future of animation. Toy Story and A Bug’s Life had already put Pixar on the map and Toy Story 2 was due out before y2k forced us to recreate all computer technology (or not). Because not only were fully computer-animated movies coming out (in addition to the Pixar collection, Antz was another fairly celebrated film and the first Shrek was just on the horizon), they had good stories. They had celebrity voices. They had the backing of major studios who were turning what was once known as kid’s movies into a behemoth the whole family could enjoy and pay full price admission for. This is why a brilliant film like Brad Bird’s The Iron Giant largely gets forgotten. A 2-D, low-budget, Warner Bros. animation feature film was never supposed to have an impact on the box office.

Well, here it is, folks: definitive proof that Toy Story is real. In this adorable video, a dad sits his 3-year-old daughter Sophia down to talk to her after she paints her Barbie doll with blue Disney nail polish—which is a no-no. It does not take long for Sophie to snitch, and blame Barbie for what went down. "She told me to," says the super-cute guilty party, choking back tears. "She said it a hundred times," claims Sophie. "And I be saying 'no.'" Barbie was clearly that lady at the nail salon. The cameraman dad tries to clarify the peer pressure story of Sophie vs. her dolls, while reminding her that there's to be no nail polish »
In typical Disney-Pixar fashion, “The Good Dinosaur” will definitely tug on audiences’ heart strings. A new trailer for the Nov. 25 release focuses on the despair a young Apatosaurus named Arlo feels when he gets separated from his father. Luckily, a young human boy — who appears to have more in common with a dog — comes to the rescue, and helps him on his journey. Actors providing their voices for what could easily be another animated hit for the studio behind “Up” and “Toy Story” include Jeffrey Wright, Frances McDormand, Anna Paquin, Sam Elliot and Steve Zahn.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the animated film that brought to life Andy.s room full of toys, and audiences' imaginations. Toy Story marks the first ever Pixar animated feature film, and the beginning of a now 20 years of iconic animated films that will forever hold the test of time. But, the initial versions of the Toy Story scripts featured many different character traits in some of our all-time favorites, particularly the good-hearted cowboy Woody. Apparently Woody was first created as the very detached, and not-very-nice toy of the bunch. In celebration of Toy Story.s anniversary John Lasseter and president of Pixar, Ed Catmull participated in a panel discussion sharing stories about the making of the first-ever fully computer animated film (via Variety). Within the panel, Lasseter discussed some of the difficulties he faced in bringing his story successfully to life. He touched upon the many changes »
At the Academy’s 20th anniversary celebration of “Toy Story” Thursday night at Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, Disney/Pixar’s John Lasseter said the plan was to always portray the toys as adults.
“The fundamental thing that we did was we always viewed the toys as adults,” Lasseter said. “We viewed them that when Andy leaves the room it becomes a work place. What we wanted was for Woody to be the leader, he was Andy’s favorite toy but he made sure everybody got played with and they had staff meetings.”
The night opened with a showing of the original “Toy Story” trailer straight from the archives on 35mm film and continued to tell the story of Pixar’s founding until the making of “Toy Story.” They also screened the first Pixar animated short “Luxo Jr.,” which was the first appearance of the now-famous lamp that stars »

While more and more blockbusters are being released in 3D, the medium has not necessarily translated into Oscar night success stories. While the glasses may sometimes be uncomfortable for theater-goers, the immersive quality that 3D provides makes it a big money maker for CGI-heavy films and big summer releases.
Oscar, on the other hand, has historically preferred more traditional visuals, i.e. the 2D variety. Only six films that have received wide releases in 3D have been nominated for best picture in Academy history, and none have won. Director Robert Zemeckis is hoping that his latest film, The Walk, which was released this Wednesday, will become the seventh 3D film to earn a nomination and finally take home the big prize.
Here’s a look at the last six films widely released in 3D that were nominated for best picture at the Academy Awards:

Rome – The Rome Film Festival has unveiled the lineup of its 10th edition comprising a rich mix of crowdpleasing and more esoteric fare, including local launches of James Ponsoldt’s “The End of the Tour,” Michael Almereyda’s “The Experimenter,” Peter Sollett’s “Freehold,” Lenny Abrahamsson’s “Room,” and Paul Thomas Anderson’s docu “Junun” (pictured) about Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood’s travels to India.
Under new direction by New York-based Italian journalist and academic Antonio Monda, the Rome fest has been renamed Festa del Cinema – which translates literally as “Film Party” rather than festival. The only award is given by the audience.
Monda said he decided to do away with the competition, the juries, and the opening and closing ceremonies “all rituals that I view as too stuffy and conventional, inappropriate to what I had in mind.” He instead kept the audience nod “to underscore the idea of a »

The Walk, the true story adaption of high-wire artist Philippe Petit’s (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) 1974 walk across the World Trade Center from director Robert Zemeckis, premiered this Saturday at the 53rd New York Film Festival. The film has been receiving major Oscar buzz for Gordon-Levitt and Zemeckis, and hopes to garner a best picture nomination.
However, the film’s rating, PG, makes it a bit of a rarity in relation to recent Oscar success. Though it is not considered a children’s film by any means, with moments of extreme tension and drama, The Walk is nonetheless a family-friendly picture and its Npaa rating reflects that.
Since the turn of the new millennium, the majority of best pictures noms and winners have been rated PG-13 or R, a trend Zemeckis is hoping to buck this season.

The season finale of the eighth season of The Big Bang Theory came with a doozy of a cliffhanger. Leonard revealed to Penny that he had kissed another woman whilst they were together and Amy said that she needed time to reconsider her relationship with Sheldon, who unbeknownst to her had been preparing to propose. It was a big narrative kick up the rear end for a show that can often be accused of treading water in its central storylines.
That’s not something that ‘The Matrimonial Momentum’ could be accused of, though, as we were thrown right into Leonard and Penny’s wedding in Las Vegas. The pair selected a wedding package that allowed their friends back in Pasadena the ability to watch the ceremony live on the internet. »

Today audiences know Pixar Animation for delivering stunning feature length computer animated movies. But before they were able to complete the incredible feat that was Toy Story, they created computer animated shorts in the late 1980s. One of their earliest shorts was Tin Toy, a predecessor to Toy Story in more ways than one, and […]
