the incredibles 2

2004’s The Incredibles ends with a stirring call-to-action, the promise of one more big action scene, and then…a cut to the credits, spurred on Michael Giaccchino’s thrilling musical score. It’s a perfect ending for a near-perfect superhero movie: the promise of more adventure for the super-powered and united Parr family, even if we don’t get to see it.

However, it looks like The Incredibles 2 will finally let us see exactly what goes down between the heroic family and the villainous Underminer. It’ll just take 14 years.

Pixar TV Show Pitches

Though Pixar Animation puts out some of the most popular animated movies in the business, but for the most part, they haven’t tried to bring their movies to TV. There have been shorts like Toy Story That Time Forgot and Toy Story of Terror, as well as shorts like the Cars Toons and Toy Story Toons. Plus, there was a 2D animated series called Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. But Fairly OddParents creator Butch Hartman has some great ideas for Pixar TV shows that would spin-off from some of their movies.

Hear Butch Hartman’s Pixar TV show pitches below along with some awesome art illustrating them. Read More »

The Most Underrated Moments in Pixar History

The 12 Most Underrated Pixar Moments

Whenever there’s a conversation about the work of Pixar, it tends to shift into emotional reactions their films produce. And when you’ve been having these conversations for as long as I have, you tend to notice that the same specific moments are always brought up. These would likely include the emotional rollercoaster that begins Up, the intense start to Finding Nemo, or the edge-of-your-seat climax of Toy Story 3. But with such a rich catalog of feature films (and shorts), there are many funny, lovely, and truly bizarre moments within the company’s history that seem to never get the spotlight they deserve.

So with the release of Cars 3 this week, it seems only right that a new list of moments needed to be created. Some of these are funny and others might make you cry, but as with anything related to the house that made Buzz and Woody, there’s a lot of mushy feelings involved. So sit back, grab onto your Luxo Jr. ball, and let’s take a look into some of the more underrated Pixar moments.

Gallery Nucleus - Pixar Animation - The Incredibles

Gallery Nucleus has been host to some pretty cool artwork exhibitions inspired by pop culture. They don’t get featured quite as often as Hero Complex Gallery or Gallery 1988 since they don’t have new pieces available as frequently, but they still have some incredible artwork. A new exhibition opening this weekend is no different with artwork inspired by each of the films of Pixar Animation, from Toy Story to Finding Dory. There’s one for each movie, and what’s awesome is that each piece was handpicked by Pixar chief creative officer John Lasseter for the show.

Brad Bird Commentary

Brad Bird is one of the best filmmakers working in animation today. He doesn’t have an endless list of films in his career, but quantity doesn’t necessarily equal quality, and when you know that the few films he has directed are The Iron Giant, The Incredibles and Ratatouille, then you know why he’s such a respected talent.

For anyone looking for a little more insight into Brad Bird’s creative process, editor Kees van Dijkhuizen Jr. has put together a little video essay of sorts featuring explanatory voiceover on top of clips from the director’s movies. Watch and listen to the Brad Bird commentary on animation after the jump. Read More »
