Pixar Announce Future Slate

Recommended Posts

Yes, I'll get rid of that topic until we know a bit more. What are we looking at here, 2016, do you think?

At the earliest. Their slate is full until 2016 (maybe 2017 if their Day of the Dead film gets bumped back, which is possible) and it takes a long time for them to develop these projects so it could be even later.

Andrew Stanton Confirms 'Finding Nemo' Sequel?

While discussing the financial letdown of John Carter and its effect on him with LA Times (a worthwhile read), Andrew Stanton may have let it slip that he’s working on the rumored Finding Nemo follow-up.

Buzz surrounding the sequel was backed by multiple outlets back in July, but Disney and Pixar never confirmed nor denied the allegations. When questioned about the motivations behind Finding Nemo 2, however, Stanton himself finally responded to the rumors:

"What was immediately on the list was writing a second ‘Carter’ movie,’ he said. "When that went away, everything slid up. I know I’ll be accused by more sarcastic people that [‘Nemo 2’]‘s a reaction to ‘Carter’ not doing well, but only in its timing, but not in its conceit."

Sounds like the sequel is definitely in the pipeline for Pixar, presumably with Stanton at the helm. Whether you support the idea of a Nemo sequel or not, there’s not enough information about the project out right now to take a final stance for or against it.

Finding Nemo 2 could reach theaters sometime in 2016.

That last image reminds me of Grim Fandango...boy, I'd love to see an animation set in that world!

Theoretically it could be exactly that, as Disney own that series now but of course it won't be. Still, one can dream, right?

If they made a Grim Fandango film then we could get a game too?

I watched Up today. They can make whatever they want, just throw money at them.

From the D23 expo -


“The Good Dinosaur” asks the generations-old question: What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? In theaters May 30, 2014, the film is a humorous and exciting original story about Arlo, a lively 70-foot-tall teenage Apatosaurus with a big heart. After a traumatic event rattles Arlo’s tranquil community, he sets out on a quest to restore peace, gaining an unlikely companion along the way—a young human boy named Spot.

And the first still from Toy Story of Terror, a 30 minute Halloween adventure -

After one of the toys goes missing, the others find themselves caught up in a mysterious sequence of events that must be solved before they all suffer the same fate in this “Toy Story OF TERROR!” From director Angus MacLane and producer Galyn Susman, “Toy Story OF TERROR!” premieres on ABC Oct. 16, 2013.

The Good Dinosaur has lost its director and the film has now been pushed back from Summer 2014 to November 2015. That means for the first time 2005, 2014 will be a year with no new Pixar release. And with Dinosaurs being moved, Finding Dory has also been push back six months, to Summer 2016.

It shows that they think first about what is best for the final film, not the person who was original given the opportunity to helm it.

The culture at Pixar seems to be: they encourage a lot of things amongst their staff but do not allow for indulgence.

A clip from the latest Toy Story short which will accompany the 3D re-release of Finding Nemo:

So the Vancouver satellite studio behind this short got some bad news this week:

From Variety:

Vancouver facility shuttered immediately as B.C. incentives fall behind

According to Canadian news site The Province, Disney spokesperson Barb Matheson said “A decision was made to refocus operations and resources under the one roof, Staff were just told today. Not great news, obviously.” That one facility is Pixar’s HQ in Emeryville, Calif.

Disney was drawn to Vancouver by tax incentives, and this closure comes in the wake of British Columbia incentives falling behind those offered by Ontario and Quebec. It is possible the Mouse House might look at Ontario or Quebec as new locations for a Canada branch. But a Pixar spokesman declined to comment on that possibility and released the following statement: “The team at Pixar Canada is incredibly talented and we are so proud of the excellent work we have produced there. However, as we look at the creative and business needs of our studio, we’ve made the decision to refocus our efforts and resources under one roof in Emeryville and will be closing the studio in Vancouver.

Pixar Canada has produced several shorts for the studio, including “Air Mater,” “Small Fry” and “Partysaurus Rex” (see above and below), since 2010. Pixar’s shorts have been a proving ground for new directors and concepts for the studio. Operations there will cease immediately.

This coming off the back of two big delays and director being turfed off a film (kept very much on the DL until they had to), I expect that something's systematic is up.

Or it's a case of Steve Jobs no longer being there to push back against Disney's will.

If you ask my 3 year old son, cars & cars 2 are the best films ever, so in that respect the target audience is happy. They may not have the deepest message but they are perfectly watchable films.

After one of the toys goes missing

I adore Pixar but it seems that the plot of about 75% of their output is "Someone goes missing, rest of cast set off to find them".

All 3 Toy Stories, Bugs Life, Nemo, Cars, Wall-E, Even Up to a degree.

--

Also Cars is brilliant but I can see why it wouldn't be.

Both fims are massively, massively packed with very nerdy motoring and motor racing references. If you're missing those I can see you're missing out.

Basically if you didn't recognise the King in Cars 1 by voice, you're going to miss out.

The Man Who Invented the Name Pixar Retired Yesterday

A (now-deleted) tweet last night by Pixar director Mark Walsh announced that one of the companys earliest employees, Loren Carpenter (pictured above right, with Ed Catmull and Alvy Ray Smith), retired on Friday at the age of 66. To give a sense of his impact on the company, Carpenter was the guy who invented the name Pixar. The invaluable book Droidmaker by Michael Rubin recounts the evening that the name Pixar was created:

Loren Carpenter was still lobbying for Cinematrix for either the product or the division, but couldnt get anyone to sign on. One evening, Loren, Alvy [Ray Smith], Jim Blinn, and Rodney Stock headed out to dinner to try to work through the problem. They settled into a booth at The Country Garden, the nearest place to their offices where you could sit down and get pretty good food at any hour. It was a little noisy, but comfortable.

Lets just name it after what it does. It makes pictures, pointed out Alvy. But it should sound cool and scientific, like laser.

Everyone gave nods of agreement between bites. The er at the end is good. Its a Spanish suffix that makes it a verb. Laserpixel laserpixer

Alvy stopped. Pixer? Thats pretty good.

It sounds weird, said Loren.

Well, something like pixer.

That name will never stick, said Loren.

Why not?

Loren thought for a moment.. It just sounds kind ofstrange. What about pixar.

Thats good, said Alvy.

Jim and Rodney didnt stop eating, but their eyes registered consensus. Loren was mulling it over.

Then it sounds a little more like radar, and sort of astronomical, like quasar or pulsar, Loren added.

Blinn, as an unofficial space program delegate to the meal, looked up from his soup and nodded in agreement.

Alvy was pleased. You know, ar is another Spanish verb ending, he said, in further support of his case.

I like it. If we call it Pixar it will stick, and it sounds cool, said Loren. This will stick.

The Incredibles 2, anyone?

http://www.insidethemagic.net/headlines/cars-3-and-the-incredibles-2-announced-as-pixar-sequels-at-walt-disney-shareholders-meeting-star-wars-episode-7-timeframe-revealed/

Today at the Walt Disney Company’s annual shareholders meeting, Disney CEO Bob Iger ran through their upcoming slate of movies for the next few years. After barreling through live-action films, Iger turned to Pixar making some surprising announcements.

New sequels to “Cars” and “The Incredibles” are in the works at Pixar. No further details were given, other than to say director Brad Bird is back for “The Incredibles 2″ and “Cars 3″ is also in development.

While a sequel to The Incredibles is long overdue, Pixar really have milked the sequels in the last few years. Its quite depressing, really.

Cars 5 lol

I'm the odd one out here but I didn't get on with the first one. It had a nice opening 30mins, showing super heroes stuck in real world with the likes of super heroes being sued was at the time quite interesting but it soon turned into a Saturday morning cartoon affair with no depth or emotion. Doesn't make it a bad film by any stretch but it just lacked that punch but then I find the same problem in a lot of Pixar films like Up, Wall-E etc where they touch on the idea of depth before it transforms into a saturday morning cartoon caper. Regardless, I can still appreciate all the work that goes into these films on some level and respect that they didn't cash in on this sequel earlier considering how popular it was.
