Pixar fans already counting the days to Toy Story 4‘s 2017 release date need to reset their calendars. The fourth outing of Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the gang has been officially pushed back a year, and that shiny parking space of a release date now belongs to Cars 3.
More on the new Toy Story 4 release date can be found after the jump.

Just recently a wonderful fanmade montage took a look at the range of emotions that have been on display in the 20 year history of Pixar Animation‘s feature films. It’s truly impressive how Pixar’s films have the power to make adults and kids run through the gamut of the emotional spectrum, and a new video finally explains how they do it.
The secret to Pixar’s emotional appeal is something called the SadLab, a group of people working to to discover new ways of making audiences cry as much as possible. The Pixar SadLab has been doing a pretty bang-up job so far. Read More »
Today audiences know Pixar Animation for delivering stunning feature length computer animated movies. But before they were able to complete the incredible feat that was Toy Story, they created computer animated shorts in the late 1980s.
One of their earliest shorts was Tin Toy, a predecessor to Toy Story in more ways than one, and one Pixar fan has given the main character in the film a building block makeover. Now Master builder and Flickr user Koen has recreated Tinny, a tin toy of a one-man band, in LEGO form, and it’s a very well-done version of the toy that captures the simplicity of the early animated short and brings him into the real world.

So far we’ve seen two different trailers for Pixar Animation’s second film of 2015, The Good Dinosaur. And while we’ve seen some stunning animation and have a basic idea of the story about a young apatosaurus named Arlo befriending a feral young boy in the wild, we’ve only heard one word of dialogue from the movie.
But that changes today in a quick new The Good Dinosaur trailer from overseas. This one has Spanish voiceover and bumpers, but it doesn’t make the trailer harder to follow because all the dialogue is in English, and it includes more lines from Raymond Ochoa as Arlo, as well as the first dialogue from Sam Elliott as the gruff, intimidating tyrannosaurus rex named Butch and more.

If you’re a lover of animation, then one of the places you’re likely dying to visit is Pixar Animation Studios. Unlike most major production companies, Pixar is nowhere near what people regard as Hollywood. Instead, the Pixar campus is situated far north, in Emeryville, California. And today you can get an idea of what it’s like to be on Pixar’s big, fun campus.
Over the weekend, Disney fan Keith Lapinig had the opportunity to take a private tour of Pixar’s campus, and thankfully, he brought a camera with him so that those of us who aren’t lucky enough to be there can still check it out. So if you’ve got 15 extra minutes, watch the Pixar Animation tour video below! Read More »

Hopefully by now you’ve met the voices inside your head by way of Pixar’s wonderful Inside Out. It’s a touching, funny, wonderful animated tale that will make you have all the feels.
But now filmmaker Nelson Carvajal has given Inside Out a new feeling (no pun intended) by mashing it up with the trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Inception. Pixar’s emotional adventure gets a little more dramatic by being set to Zack Hemsey’s “Mind Heist” track, making the proceedings that occur in Riley’s mind all the more urgent.

If you’ve seen Pixar‘s latest film Inside Out, then you likely felt a swell of all the feels a few times throughout the movie. And while it’s easy for some of us to get caught up in the emotions of the film (both as feelings and as characters scrambling on the big screen), there are those who may not be as moved by the struggles 11-year old Riley has in the movie.
A clever new video has surfaced online called Pixar Depression, presented as if it were a prescription commercial for some kind of anti-depressant. In reality, what it does is poke fun at the hardships presented in the movie by pointing out that Riley just has a case of first world problems. Watch Pixar Depression after the jump! Read More »
While there’s plenty of sound design, editing and recording that has to be done for live-action movies, the job seems a little more difficult when it comes to feature-length animated films. Every single sound you hear has to be manufactured for the film. And that job gets exponentially harder when you have to give sound to a location you’ve thought about, but have never been to, like the inside of an 11-year old girl’s mind.
That’s the challenge that faced director Pete Docter and producer Jonas Rivera and supervising sound editor Shannon Mills from Skywalker Sound with Pixar’s latest film Inside Out. And now SoundWorks Collection dives into how the sounds of the movie were created, and as you would expect, it’s very fascinating. Learn about the sound of Inside Out after the jump! Read More »
