Pixar Animation Studios has announced, during Disney’s annual showcase D23, two more yet-to-be-named feature films on the way, to be released by Disney in the early months of 2013.
The first one sounds like a fun premise that Pixar can execute well. According to the animation studio’s Twitter account, the film reimagines the history of the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs. However, in the film, the asteroid misses Earth and the dinosaurs keep on living.
The second movie’s description is a bit vague and obscure, especially for a Pixar film. The film will “explore a world that everyone knows, but no one has seen, inside the human mind.” Wonder if there will be cuddly stuffed animals modeled after the movie’s characters…inside the brain?
Both films will be released sometime in 2013. Meanwhile, Pixar is already working on a feature entitled “Brave”. The darker fantasy-adventure film, to be released on June 22nd, 2012, is Pixar’s first fairy tale and concerns the adventures of a young and courageous daughter of a king, Merida, in the ancient Scottish Highlands. The first trailer is already released, and the film is generating buzz already, for the animation quality and for being the first Pixar film that will star a (extremely redheaded) female protagonist.
Also to come out is a short film featuring Buzz and the gang from Toy Story. Since Pixar’s first Toy Story Short worked so well (the one featuring Ken and Barbie, ‘Hawaiian Vacation’, which was attached to Cars 2), Pixar is continuing the series. According to Huffington Post, the short film will be attached to the Muppets movie (coming out November 23rd).
