WE ♥ PIXAR
"A major weapons test is eminent - we need to know how to destroy it…" Time for something a little fun to end the week. Mashup creator "Darth Blender" has released a video titled Rogue One: A Pixar Story, which combines footage from different Pixar movies. Playing off of the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, various characters from Pixar movies come together to capture Dr. Porkchop's spaceship. As cheesy as this sounds, it's actually an enjoyable mashup of characters and clips, mixing up the right moments from different movies to make this feel like a single movie worth watching. This also makes me want to rewatch Pixar's Brave again, which I haven't seen since release and it seems to be better than I remember. Have fun.
Now that you've seen it, what did you think? "She just kept swimming." Disney his released the latest Pixar Animation Studios movie, Finding Dory, the long-awaited sequel to Finding Nemo (first released in 2003). Directed by Andrew Stanton and co-directed by Angus MacLane, the animated adventure brings back the blue tang named Dory, and her two clownfish friends Nemo and Marlin, for another trip across the ocean. The voice cast features Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O'Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Hayden Rolence, Ty Burrell, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy. So how is it? As good as Finding Nemo, or better? Did it make you cry? Once you've seen it, leave a comment with your own thoughts on Pixar's Finding Dory.
Today marks the release of the 17th movie from Pixar Animation Studios. First launched in 1986, they have consistently been one of the most successful movie studios producing consistently outstanding content that wins over audiences of all ages, critics and even The Academy (26 Oscars!). To celebrate the release of Finding Dory, two fans put together this fantastic video called "The Evolution of Pixar" analyzing their progress with animation technology over these past 30 years. It's kind of amazing to see how far they've come, and they still produce some of the best animation, the best movies, and the best storytelling out there.
It's always exciting to see the latest short film in front of the latest Pixar film. They are consistently just as engaging and endearing as the feature film itself. Playing before Pixar's Finding Dory opening this month is a short film called Piper, about a little baby sandpiper bird looking for food on the beach. Explaining the style to THR, director Alan Barillaro said: "I love the painterly aspects of macro photography; the textures almost becomes a characters. I want to see computer animation fall into that world where lenses, just like in live action photography, can have a lot of expression." Disney released a short clip to tease the short. Enjoy.
"Our friend is in there, lost and alone!" Disney-Pixar has debuted a new trailer for their upcoming animated sequel Finding Dory, directed by Andrew Stanton and co-directed by Angus MacLane. Everyone is back for this follow-up, including Albert Brooks as Marlin, and Ellen DeGeneres as Dory, with plenty of new voices like Idris Elba, Michael Sheen, Dominic West, Diane Keaton and Kaitlin Olson. This new trailer is much more emotional and reveals large amounts of the story, and it really looks wonderful. The opening hints at where the movie begins and the story about Dory looking for her family. The rest of it takes place at the aquatic center, where Dory befriends an Octopus named Hank. I really really can't wait to see this, Pixar is better crafting the emotional core of their movies than just about any other animation studio.
Have you seen her? This looks like so much fun, I can't wait to see it! We've seen two trailers for Disney-Pixar's Finding Dory so far but they haven't revealed too much of the plot yet. Another new trailer for Finding Dory has debuted and it's from Japan - so all the voices have been dubbed in Japanese and it's kind of amazing to hear. There's something really fun about hearing the Japanese voices, even though I have no idea what they're saying. This trailer shows tons of new footage and reveals the plot - Dory gets captured and brought to an aquatic center, and Marlin + Nemo go looking for her there. Most of the footage shows her trying to get out, and them trying to get in, meeting new friends along the way including some sea lions.
"You and I were friends! It was so much fun because I'd tell you a story and you'd completely forget about it…" Disney-Pixar has unveiled another new teaser trailer for Finding Dory, the highly-anticipated and awaited sequel to Finding Nemo. Everyone is back for this follow-up, including Albert Brooks as Marlin, and Ellen DeGeneres as Dory, with plenty of new voices like Idris Elba, Michael Sheen, Dominic West, Diane Keaton and Kaitlin Olson. Compared to the first trailer for this sequel, while there is more footage, they're still holding back on revealing the full story and what happens with Nemo/Marlin. We can tell Dory ends up at a petting zoo kind of place, but the rest of this is still mysterious. Catch the new footage below.
Can you help us find Dory? Where did she go this time? Disney-Pixar have unveiled a gorgeous set of four teaser posters for Finding Dory, the upcoming sequel to the beloved animated adventure Finding Nemo. This animated sequel sees Dory, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, getting lost on a search for her parents, and Marlin, voiced by Albert Brooks, joining with Nemo to head back out and save her. We're still waiting to see more footage and get a better sense of the story aside from the original details (see paragraph below) but otherwise, I'm very excited for this just because I love all the different fish and animals found in the ocean. These are stunningly simple posters. I love the last one (with the sea anemone) the most. Take a look below.
Now that you've seen it, what did you think? The new Pixar movie is here! Now playing in theaters everywhere is the 16th feature film from Pixar Animation Studios (the second this year following Inside Out) titled The Good Dinosaur. Directed by Peter Sohn, the film is set in an alternate timeline where the dinosaurs evolved into intelligent species, and one of them named Arlo ends up on an adventure with a tiny human friend. Arlo is voiced by Raymond Ochoa. Along the way he meets a family of T-Rexes - voiced by A.J. Buckley, Anna Paquin and Sam Elliott. So how is Pixar's latest? Did it pull at your heart strings? Make you laugh? Once you've seen it, post a comment with your thoughts on Pixar's The Good Dinosaur.
"My family! They're out there!" Disney-Pixar has debuted the first charming trailer for the long-awaited sequel to 2003's Finding Nemo, titled Finding Dory. Marlin and Nemo and their new friend Dory are still friends, but this time it's Dory who ends up lost, as she just kept (sleep) swimming in an attempt to find her family and now they can't find her. I love the original Finding Nemo and this already looks like an amusing follow-up that isn't pushing the story too far from the characters we love. The voice cast includes Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Idris Elba, Dominic West, Diane Keaton, Ty Burrell and others. I'm sure there are more characters we'll meet down the line, including Dory's parents. Jump back in the water below.
"Just keep swimming! Just keep swimming!" Where'd she go! Disney has unveiled the first official teaser poster for Pixar's Finding Dory, the sequel to Finding Nemo, starring once again Dory the blue tang and her clownfish pals Marlin and Nemo. The voice cast includes Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Idris Elba, Dominic West, Diane Keaton, Ty Burrell and others. The teaser poster is very simple featuring nothing but Dory escaping out of frame, and the new tagline for the movie. The tagline is very simple as well, and almost too on the nose for my liking, but this is just a tease so there will be plenty more to see. For now, take a look.
Best friends are friends forever. The latest charming TV spot promo for Pixar's The Good Dinosaur is a very emotional, very sweet reminder of how important friendship is. The spot takes a quick look back at "20 years of friendship", and all the different stories they've told about friends. "A single friendship can change everything. From Toy Story to The Good Dinosaur, join us in celebrating 20 years of friendship from Pixar Animation Studios." The Good Dinosaur is also about a friendship - Arlo, the apatosaurus, and his human pet that he names Spot. I'm already excited to see this, even moreso after this wonderful look back at Pixar.
