Pixar must have known what it was doing when it scheduled Toy Story 3 for Fathers’ Day weekend 2010, over a decade after the release of Toy Story 2. For as much as kids were eager to catch up with Woody and Buzz, it was the fathers who inevitably stayed in their seats during the film’s closing credits, trying to compose themselves before their children noticed dad’s cheeks were wet. Adult conversations about the film that summer often began with, “Sooo… Did you cry?” or rather, “How hard did you cry?”
Toy Story 3 cracked a lot of adults’ armor, »

The official Marvel site has revealed that actor and comedian Patton Oswalt (King of Queens, Ratatouille) is set to join the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., where he'll guest star in the role of Agent Eric Koenig, a character who made his comic book debut in the pages of Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos as a wartime associate of Nick Fury. Here's a look at Oswalt in character....
"I got a call from my agent saying they want you on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and I said ‘hell, yes,'" states Oswalt. “I’m lucky that I’m visible enough that they wanted to bring me in to play this character. I’d worked with [Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Executive Producer] Joss Whedon before on Dollhouse, and I guess I wasn’t too annoying and they decided to put me on another one of his shows. So I was very lucky... When they first »

Comedian and actor Patton Oswalt, best known for his work in films such as Big Fan (2009),Young Adult (2011),and The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013), as well as voicing the star of Pixar’s Ratatouille (2007), is set to guest star on a brand new episode of Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D later this season.
Oswalt plays a character from the comics – Agent Eric Koenig – a character who debuted in 1966 as a member of Nick Fury’s World War II battalion. Clearly there’s to be some rejigging to be done here on the writers part, but it will be interesting to see what Oswalt’s character will bring to the show.

Oswalt is to play Agent Eric Koenig in a fothcoming episode, whose first appearance was made in Sgt. Fury And The Howling Commandos issue number 27. It's the actor/comedian's second involvement with a Whedon-led project, after his role as Joel Mynor in a couple of episodes of Dollhouse.
Since the end of long-running sitcom King Of Queens, Oswalt has made guest appearances in a range of cult comedy hits, from Flight Of The Conchords, to Community, The Venture Bros, Portlandia and more. Arguably one of his best performances though, is in Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody's Young Adult, »
Does it make me a bad person if I'm still surprised each time Patton Oswalt is cast as an actor? Don't get me wrong… I think he's very good. I think the work he's done in films like "Big Fan" and "Ratatouille" and "Young Adult" is great. It's just that I still think of him primarily as a stand-up. I also think of him as a consummate fanboy, a guy who unabashedly loves what he loves, and a big part of what he loves is the world of comic books. It must be delightful when your various passions all converge, and I'm willing to bet that Patton practically sprinted to set when he got the call to join "Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D." as Agent Eric Koenig. If you're a fan of Nick Fury's history, you might recognize Koenig's name. He was a member of the »

The Ratatouille and Justified actor will appear in an upcoming episode of the ABC series as Agent Eric Koenig. The character was part of Nick Fury’s team of World War II soldiers in the original Marvel comics.
“I got a call from my agent saying they want you on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and I said ‘Hell, yes,’” Oswalt said. “I’m lucky that I’m visible enough that they wanted to bring me in to play this character. I’d worked with before on Dollhouse, »

Animation studio also to produce Cars 3 film, along with Finding Nemo follow-up, Finding Dory
Disney-owned animation studio Pixar is to produce a sequel to the Oscar-winning animation The Incredibles, more than a decade after Brad Bird's hugely popular tale of a family of retired superheroes first hit cinemas.
The new instalment was announced yesterday by Walt Disney's Bob Iger at a briefing for shareholders in Portland, Oregon. Iger also said Pixar would work on a second sequel to 2006's Cars.
The Incredibles is set in a world in which superheroes exist but have been banned from crime fighting. Mr Incredible (voiced by Craig T Nelson) has been living incognito as plain old Bob Parr when a mysterious offer gives him the chance to return to action. Soon he and his wife Helen (nee Elastigirl), along with their three children (who are developing superpowers of their own), are caught up »

It looks like Disney and Pixar are in the sequel game for good now with three Toy Story films, two Cars productions and one Monsters Inc. prequel under their belt, they’re not stopping there.
Everyone knows that sequels tend to make more money at the box office these days, and it just so happens that Pixar are not only extremely popular, but they also make exceptional follow-ups to their work. With the upcoming Finding Dory as well as the recently announced 3D conversions of The Incredibles and Ratatouille, you would think Pixar have enough exciting prospects on their hands. However the multi-award winning animation studio have just dropped another sequel bomb that many movie-goers have been anticipating for a very long time.
Pixar have just announced that The Incredibles 2 and Cars 3 are currently in early stages of development. Of course Cars 3 was all-but-a-given for the studio with the success of the previous two instalments, »

Disney just announced that it will re-release 3D versions of "The Incredibles" and "Ratatouille" in theaters. Pixar fans immediately responded by letting the studio know that instead of re-releasing "The Incredibles," it should instead make "The Incredibles" sequel. Now comes word that Disney has been planning exactly that. CEO Robert Iger announced that work on "The Incredibles 2" has already started, despite the fact that director Brad Bird has been saying that a sequel will likely never happen. It's not clear whether Bird will replace. During the same announcement, Iger said that "Cars 3" is also in development. No surprise there since the "Cars" franchise is one of the biggest sellers of toys and other merchandise. Iger made sure to confirm that Pixar will be working on both sequels rather than Disney's animation department. »
The movie sequels were confirmed by Disney President Bob Iger today (March 18).
Speaking at the 3D Creative Summit in London, Pixar's director of 3D production Josh Hollander told the audience: "Right now we're working on The Incredibles, which is a lot of fun in 3D. I'm not sure what the release strategy for it will be.
"It's been an interesting challenge to work on technology because - while the film was released ten years ago - the technology is even older as it took four years to make. »
Disney Company chief Bob Iger has revealed that Disney and Pixar are moving forward with the animated sequels Cars 3 and The Incredibles 2. He made the announcement today in Portland Oregon during the company's shareholders meeting.
Brad Bird, director of the original The Incredibles, is penning the screenplay for the sequel. Fans have wanted a follow-up for over a decade, with Brad Bird occasionally teasing that he would return for a second installment if the story was right. It is not known if he will direct. He is currently in the midst of production on Disney's Tomorrowland, which hits theaters this Christmas.
No other details were revealed about either project.

Recently, we reported on Pixar Animation Studio.s progress when it came to bringing past classics back to theaters with 3D upgrades. The films of Brad Bird were in the spotlight, as Pixar was fashioning enhanced visions of The Incredibles and Ratatouille.

The news was revealed at an annual stockholders. meeting (and reported . amongst other places . on InsideTheMagic.net).

“Cars 2,” Pixar’s 12th film, earned nearly $560 million worldwide in 2011; $191 million in the U.S. While somewhat of a critical disappointment, the film, directed by John Lasseter, still minted millions for Disney from consumer products like toys, apparel and other merchandise, a series of “Cars Toons” shorts, and helped spin off the company’s newest franchise, “Planes,” a film that was originally developed as a direct-to-homevideo title but went on to launch its own toy line and earn around $220 million worldwide when it was released theatrically in 2013. A sequel, “Planes: Fire and Rescue” bows July 18.

3D has probably outstayed many naysayers predictions, becoming an integral part to the box-office take of any big budget motion picture. However, it isn’t just new releases reaping the benefits of the extra dimension, but also re-releases that take older favourites and go all post-converted on us. One company that’s had a lot of success with this formula is Pixar, the guys behind Toy Story, Monsters Inc. and Finding Nemo. Now they are set to put two more of their animated films through the 3D process as both The Incredibles and Ratatouille are currently in development.
I’m still not a convert when it comes to 3D and I think the last 3D film I saw was Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace upon its re-release a couple of years ago. I’m much more of a 2D kind of guy, and it’s something that Josh Hollander, »

It was only a matter of time before we started seeing older Pixar films re-released in 3D. Thanks to Screen Daily we've learned that Ratatouille and The Incredibles are currently being prepped for a 3D release. These are my two favorite Pixar films, but I still don't think I am going to pay the money to see them in 3D. Pixar’s director of 3D production Josh Hollander had this to say in a statement about The Incredibles:
“Right now we’re working on The Incredibles, which is a lot of fun in 3D. I’m not sure what the release strategy for it will be. It’s been an interesting challenge to work on technology because - while the film was released 10 years ago - the technology is even older as it took four years to make.”
He then goes on to talk about Ratatouille, saying,
“We have a version of Ratatouille, »
