Finding Dory: What We Know So Far

27 February 2015 1:43 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Sequels. A few years back, Pixar found themselves heavily involved in the sequels game. Toy Story 2 wasn.t the exception anymore. Cars begat Cars 2. Monsters Inc. gave way to Monsters University. A third and fourth Toy Story became realities. And now, Finding Nemo is getting a sequel. or, at least, a spinoff. Pixar.s summer release in 2016 will take audiences back into the water with everyone.s favorite forgetful fish. Finding Dory will reach theaters 12 years (!!) after 2003.s Finding Nemo introduced us to a nervous clown fish, his suffocated son, and the amnesic blue tang fish that helped them on their rescue mission. But what has changed between now and then? A lot, both on the screen, and off. Let.s dive in to Pixar.s latest sequel with our What We Know So Far guide to Pixar.s Finding Dory.

Check Out Pixar's 22 Essential Storytelling Rules

9 February 2015 1:26 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s hard to argue that Pixar not only revolutionized the world of animation by creating the first feature completely generated by computers, they also dominated their field during the entirety of the last decade. In terms of technical achievement and original, heartfelt storytelling, they raised the bar so high with their hat trick of three back-to-back-to-back masterpieces, “Ratatouille”, “Wall-e,” and “Up”, that even when they release perfectly fine and entertaining films that fall short of being greatness, we make ourselves believe that they’re in a slump. “Toy Story 3” was arguably the best in the series, “Brave” was underwhelming but fun, “Monsters University” was an excellent remake of “Revenge of the Nerds” for kids, and “Cars 2”, well, it wasn’t that bad, was it?  Apart from their revolutionary technical prowess, one of the most important reasons Pixar’s work is so beloved across cultures and generations is »

10 Heart-Breaking Pixar Backstories You Probably Missed

22 January 2015 3:06 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Disney Pixar

If you think Pixar movies are all endless sunshine, colourful characters and childish thrills, then you probably haven’t been paying attention. Or you’ve literally only seen cars. Either way, you’ve missed the depth beneath the pretty drawings that meant the animation studio went from being a collective of accomplished story-tellers into a formidable brand that ended up pretty much saving Disney.

The films released under John Lassiter’s reign as Pixar supremo have been some of the most impressively received in critical terms of the past 20 years (now there’s a revelation to take the wind out of you), and that success has been down to two things. Firstly, the animation is beautiful and cutting edge, and secondly because the stories – inevitably slanted towards entertainment – have dealt with some seriously weighty issues that are as universally important and devastatingly emotional as those personal demons Steven Spielberg »

With 'The Lego Movie' out of the mix, the animated feature battle is on

16 January 2015 12:32 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The biggest Oscar shocker yesterday morning, bar none, was "The Lego Movie" missing out on a nomination for Best Animated Feature Film. For many, it was the frontrunner to win the Oscar, and indeed, its absence has everyone still in the category thinking they might have a play on this thing. My bet would be on "How to Train Your Dragon 2," which won the Golden Globe last weekend. But there are those on the Disney campaign who are making everything they can of the statistic that no film that wasn't nominated by BAFTA has ever won this particular Oscar. So the "Big Hero 6" fire will surely get a lot of kindling next week. There was a bit of a silver lining Thursday night, however, as "The Lego Movie" won the animated prize at the 20th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards. Director Christopher Miller called the day a "roller coaster of emotions, »

Toy Story 4: what can we expect?

13 January 2015 5:59 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Can the post-Toy Story 3 shorts tell us anything about the upcoming direction of Pixar's Toy Story 4?

This article contains spoilers for Toy Story 3.

It seems to have become surprisingly tough to keep an open mind about Toy Story 4. Pixar have a mostly excellent track record in these things, especially when it comes to the Toy Story series. We struggle to think of a more consistently brilliant trilogy of films, so why were so many upset about the very real possibility of a fourth, also brilliant instalment, when it was announced last year?

Although some would cite the Cars films, or the impossible and yet still disappointing expectation that Monsters University would live up to Monsters Inc, it doesn't come down to anything so jaded. In all of the ways that Toy Story 3 is an excellent film, it's mostly because it feels like a near unimprovable conclusion to the series. »
