Pixar has gone and announced two peculiar new films with a what if concept that will definitely get you and your kids thinking!
“We’re going to announce two new films no one has ever heard about. Original films,” emphasized Pixar and Disney animation chief John Lasseter, rousing cheers from the auditorium at Disney’s D23 fan convention, where the news was revealed. “You’re the very first group anywhere in the world to hear what these are about. But I’m not going to tell you about it. I’m going to let the filmmakers tell you.”
The first film is The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs! which is due out during the holidays in 2013. Director Bob Peterson explains: “Science tells us that an asteroid put an end to the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. In our movie the asteroid missed the Earth and dinosaurs continued to live.”
“The inspiration for this came from when I was a little kid, and my mom and dad took me to the New York World’s Fair and I got to see something amazing — the animatronic dinosaurs created by Walt Disney. It made a big impression on me,” Peterson said.
Next is the project being helmed by the director of Up and Monsters Inc. Pete Docter which is being aimed for summer 2014.
“At Pixar we love to explore new worlds,” Docter said. “We’ve taken you from the depths of the ocean, to the mountains of South America, from Monstropolis to outer space. We’re excited to take you somewhere everyone has been to, but no one has ever seen.”
“The world inside your own mind.” It is currently being dubbed The Untitled Pixar Movie that Takes You Inside the Mind.
“Do you ever wonder how people make decisions? Why we remember, or how we forget? Why we dream? Why do songs get stuck in our heads?” Docter asked. “Most of us have had the experience of being around someone and thinking what is going on in their head!? This film will attempt to answer those questions.”
“We can’t wait to tell you more about it,” said producer Jonas Rivera. “As soon as we’re out of psychotherapy.”
