2015 is the rare year with not one but two Pixar films: this weekend’s Inside Out, and this fall’s still-mysterious The Good Dinosaur.
Most of what we’ve heard about the latter so far has had to do with its offscreen woes. The Good Dinosaur was originally scheduled for release in 2014, but was yanked off the calendar for extensive retooling. Now that it’s on track for a fall 2015 release, Pixar and director Peter Sohn are eager to show off some of the goods.
In an hourlong presentation this morning, Sohn offered a first look at some charming new footage from the film. In addition, he offered new details about the story and making of The Good Dinosaur, including his inspirations for the movie. (Yes, Jurassic Park came up.) Find out everything we learned after the jump. Read More »

We’ve been pretty excited about this summer’s Inside Out, but that’s not the only treat Pixar has in store for us this year. Coming this fall is The Good Dinosaur, directed by Peter Sohn. Now the first The Good Dinosaur teaser trailer has arrived, and it does nothing less than alter history itself. Watch it after the jump. Read More »
A director swap, a 18 month delay, what exactly when went down behind the scenes of Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur. In an alternate world, we’d have already seen the movie by now, as it was originally scheduled for release Summer 2014. However, story problems forced the film to get delayed a year and a half, change directors, and change a lot of what was happening in the movie.
In a revealing story in the Los Angeles Times, new director Peter Sohn explains why the film was delayed and what he’s done to change it for the better. Read about the Good Dinosaur delay, changes, and see a new image, below. Read More »
There’s no new Pixar movie in 2014, but we’ll get two from the studio in 2015. June brings Pete Docter’s Inside Out (which you can read lots about here) and then, November 25, 2015, they’ll release The Good Dinosaur.
The Good Dinosaur was originally scheduled to hit theaters in Summer 2014, but a change of directors and lack of confidence in the story pushed it back over a year. New director Peter Sohn doesn’t want people to forget the film is coming, though, and released a cute, short little teaser on Twitter. Check it out below. Read More »
Monsters University features all the entertainment and heart you’ve come to expect from Pixar, and then some. We meet Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sulley (John Goodman) during their college years, as the company’s first prequel is set years before the events of 2001’s Monsters Inc.
Director Dan Scanlon turns that simple story idea into a great, fast paced college comedy with an intriguing blend of emotional highs and lows. Every single character and moment is played to near perfect effect, leaving the audience dumbfounded at how the movie constantly keeps raising the bar. Just when you think it can’t get better, it does, and you’ll leave the theater fulfilled, but also wildly surprised at where Pixar goes this time around.

Though it announced a new title and release date for The Good Dinosaur last month, Pixar’s been loathe to give away too many plot specifics at this early stage. When first announced, all the studio would reveal was that the basic idea is “What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct?”
And while we still have no idea what species of dinosaur will take center stage, or how (or if) they’ll interact with humans, or who the lead characters are, we do have a better idea now of what other themes will tie into that central premise. Read more after the jump.

Over the weekend at Disney’s D23 Expo, Pixar announced two new films. One is jokingly called The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs, to be released on November 27, 2013. The film is directed by long-time Pixar veteran and voice actor Bob Peterson (he voiced Dug the dog in Up) and co-directed by Peter Sohn, also a Pixar vet with storyboard and animation experience, and who directed the short Partly Cloudy.
A temp logo was shown off at the expo, and while it doesn’t likely tell us anything at all about the film — it just plays with the joke of the temp titled — you can now see that image below. Read More »
