Kung Fu Panda Ties for Most Annie Award Nominations

2 December 2008 6:48 PM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

The Academy Awards are slowly creeping up, just three months away now with buzz seeming to only surround a handful of movies.  But one piece of the puzzle and a solid indicator of the “Best Animated Feature” Oscar are the Annie Awards, now in their 36th year.

DreamWorks Animation’s Kung Fu Panda earned 16 total nominations, a tie for the most in the history of the ceremonies.  The other movies to pull that off were 2004’s The Incredibles and 2005’s Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

Since the Annies started, the Annie Award for “Best Animated Feature” has predicted the Oscar winner every single time but once.

This is huge for DreamWorks, who makes successful animated movies like Shrek, but hasn’t seem to put out the quality of film that Pixar seems to churn out on a regular basis.  Just for comparison, this year’s expert pick for »

DVD Review: Wall*E: Special Edition (2008)

21 November 2008 7:21 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Maybe someday a Pixar flick will tank at the box office, but that day didn.t come in 2008. With a $222 million gross, the summer.s Wall-e fell into box office territory pretty similar to its predecessors, as the vast majority have earned somewhere in the mid-$200 million range. And given its unusual subject matter and story-telling style, I think it.s reasonable to believe only Pixar could.ve done so well with the tale at hand.

Set more than seven centuries in the future, humans overwhelmed the Earth with all their garbage and abandoned the planet until it again becomes habitable. .Wall-e. stands for .Waste Allocation Load Lifter . Earth Class.. That means Wall-e is a robot created to clean up the tremendous amount of trash that covers the Earth so people can eventually return. Wall-e used to have partners, but they.ve all broken down, so he remains the only cleaning droid. »

Groovy Early Art from 'The Incredibles'

2 October 2008 8:02 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

I wanted to call this a Fan Made post, and I suppose you can technically say artist Lou Romano is a "fan" of the designs he produces, but it's a weird line and so we're not attaching any labels. Romano, of course, is a member of the art department over at Pixar Studios, and over on his blog he's just thrown up a slew of early concept images for The Incredibles, Jack-Jack Attack and Mr. Incredible and Friends. Romano introduces the enormous set by saying they're "some other samples of Incredibles work I did between 2000-2004. Development/color styling/and dvd bonus materials." The image above (one of my personal favorites), he calls "more of a gag drawing."

The Incredibles happens to be right up there with my favorites of Pixar -- and with the popularity of superhero movies and the popularity of The Incredibles, I'm real surprised Pixar isn't »

Lou Romano, a member of the art department at Pixar, has posted to his blog several early pieces of artwork that he produced for The Incredibles between 2000 and 2004.

Goofy is Back With a New Animated Short

1 October 2008 9:52 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

In his first theatrical appearance in nearly 50 years, Disney has brought back Goofy for an all new animated short. Much like others in the "How To" series (such as How to Ride a Horse, How to Play Football, and The Art of Skiing), Goofy learns how to hook up a home theater in How to Hook Up Your Home Theater, released in theaters last Christmas.

Directed and co-written by Kevin Deters in his debut, the short was also voiced by Disney veterens Corey Burton and Bill Farmer with music by Michael Giacchino (Lost, The Incredibles). There are lots of nods to previous Disney favorites and it will bring you back to the last Goofy short you saw in theaters in Aquamania in 1961.

The short was partially produced using a new "paperless" production pipeline for Disney, the first major change in production technique for hand-drawn animation at Disney since the introduction of Caps, »

Fashionably Late, by Elayne Riggs

17 September 2008 4:46 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Whoever thought that lipstick would make major Silly Season news in the 21st century? Although I have to admit I’d rather hear about it being applied to pit bulls and pigs than human beings, but I’ve never had the best relationship with makeup, accessories and other fribbles, as this past week has reminded me.

Every September sees the re-emergence of Fashion Week here in New York City. In keeping with the acknowledgement that this Silly Season is in many ways sillier than most, this year Mercedes-Benz, the chief sponsor, has even decided to go with an election theme on the event’s home page. Maybe they want to emphasize how uselessly trivial it all is. Or, to be fair, how much “fun” people have ooh’ing and aah’ing at emaciated creatures who rarely resemble real people strutting the catwalks wearing creations that rarely resemble real clothing.

Ever since Toy Story showed the artistic—and, more attractively in Hollywood, financial—potential of CGI animated films, studios have rushed to follow, crowding theaters with CGI kids' romps that generally come packed with celebrity voices and commercial calculation. Meanwhile, Pixar—the studio behind the Toy Story movies, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, and more smash hits—has continued breaking molds, and stayed ahead of the pack largely by focusing on story and taking risks. The latest stretch comes in the form of Andrew Stanton's audaciously non-commercial Wall•E, an animated feature that adds in live-action footage, leans thematically on scenes and songs from a 1969 musical flop, and largely eschews English dialogue for half its runtime. It's Pixar's most daring experiment to date, but it still fits neatly into the studio's pantheon: Made with as much focus on heart as on visual quality, it's a sheer joy. Opening on a trash-covered, »

Andrew Stanton

25 June 2008 9:03 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Writer-director Andrew Stanton got in on the ground floor at animation studio Pixar and apparently never looked back. He's been involved in virtually all things Pixar for the past decade and a half; he co-directed A Bug's Life (with John Lasseter) and Finding Nemo (with Lee Unkrich), collaborated on the scripts for the Toy Story movies, A Bug's Life, Monsters, Inc., and Finding Nemo, and provided voices for almost all the above, plus Cars and The Incredibles. This year sees the release of his first solo writing-directing project, the Pixar picture Wall•E, about a trash-compacting robot still doing his job after 700 years alone on an abandoned Earth. The A.V. Club recently spoke with Stanton about the Pixar mentality, making live-action films in slow-motion, Wall•E's resemblance to another movie robot, and why Wall•E is so obsessed with the Barbra Streisand movie Hello, Dolly!

One More Trailer for 'Wall-e'

20 June 2008 9:10 AM, PDT | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

I'm going to go ahead and say it: We need more Rated G films. I mean, what's wrong with a story that's intended for general audiences? But then, the MPAA needs to realize that if Bambi was a G, Bridge to Terabithia should be a G, as well. Likewise, I can't understand why Amelie is Rated R when The Love Guru is Pg-13. But the bottom line is, very entertaining movies have been G-rated, and as long as Pixar is around, that will continue to be the case. (Curiously, they, too, have had a Pg rating in the past, with The Incredibles.)

Wall-e is the first G-rated effort of the summer, and we pretty much know what to expect. Kids will demand to see it, parents will oblige, all will leave happy. That's the role of a Pixar movie, and they don't disappoint. Curiously, though, director Andrew Stanton recently claimed »

4 January 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

SAN DIEGO -- THQ said Thursday that it is developing a game based on the upcoming summer Disney/Pixar movie Wall-E, continuing what has been a productive relationship between the gamemaker and film studio.

To date, THQ has shipped more than 35 million units of games based on Pixar films, including The Incredibles, Cars and last year's Ratatouille. The Wall-E game is being developed internally at THQ by Heavy Iron Studios for various platforms including the Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony's PlayStation 3 and PSP, Nintendo Wii and DS as well as PC and Mac.

Set to reach theaters June 27, Wall-E centers on a robot left to clean up the Earth who falls in love with another robot. THQ said the game will contain story lines and environments that expand on the movie's plot.

THQ senior vp global marketing Bob Aniello said the company plans to have Wall-E games on stores shelves about a week before the film opens to take advantage of the marketing and hype surrounding the movie. »
