Pixar Updates: Dinosaur Movie Title Announced, 'Nemo' in 3D & More

April 24, 2012

Pixar - Dinosaur Movie

Tonight at the industry convention CinemaCon, The Walt Disney Company hosted their big presentation, looking at their upcoming slates of movies in 2012, 2013 and beyond. One half of the presentation focused on Pixar, and their slate coming up, from screening the first 30 minutes of Brave footage (which really impressed me) to their upcoming films in 2013, 2014 and even 2015, as they announced a June 19th, 2015 release date for Pete Docter's next new film, currently known as The Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside the Mind. But there's more! Another title was just announced and a few other details were revealed.

One of the other major Pixar announcements made by John Lasseter during the presentation was that the project, being directed by Bob Peterson, formerly known as "The Untitled Pixar Dinosaur Movie" now has a title. It's called The Good Dinosaur, and it's the dinosaur project we've been catching hints of for a long time. Here's the only plot description officially out from Pixar for this upcoming May 2014 film: What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? This hilarious, heartfelt and original tale is directed by Bob Peterson (co-director/writer Up; writer Finding Nemo) and produced by John Walker (The Incredibles, Iron Giant).

Finally, they announced Lee Unkrich's new film, about Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead), but we have more details on that in a separate update. As part of the presentation, they showed us a few minutes of Finding Nemo that they converted to 3D. That 2003 Pixar movie is their latest 3D re-release coming up this fall (with Monsters Inc also getting a 3D re-release early next year). The footage looked spectacular, the oceans and the underwater style of that movie are perfect for the 3D experience, and I can't wait to revisit it in theaters (I have very fond memories of watching that movie my first time back in 2003). Totally worth it.

Lastly, I must mention the final screening of the opening 30 minutes of Brave, their summer 2012 movie, that capped off the Disney panel. While I always trust that Pixar will deliver an outstanding movie in the end, I haven't been that into Brave up to this point. Something about the footage from the trailers seemed too goofy to me, but it was this opening 30 minutes that finally showed me how wonderful, how engaging, and how amusing Brave will truly be. Story and character really shine, and so does Merida's curly red hair.

      I will take my 4 year old to see it to relive some of my past experiences with her the same way that my father took me to a re-release of Star Wars when I was a boy.

      They may be trying to push away from sequels a bit to get new ideas out and developed first. Just think of it this way, as they keep working on new projects their skills in animation with further develop to new heights. Then, if there is an Incredibles 2, the graphics and story will be phenomenal. Hopefully, one day, there will be a sequel. Until then, we can enjoy all of the other wonderful movies they make.
