All this talk about the stacked summer of 2015 largely forgets one big movie: Pixar’s Inside Out. That’s the latest film from the Oscar-winning director of Monsters Inc. and Up, Pete Docter, which takes place inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl. Up until now, that’s pretty much all we knew about the film, but in a new interview, the director revealed that it works off multiple story lines and features some very unique looking characters.

Couple good little Pixar notes today. The first is that the next film from Up director Pete Docter has officially been titled. Instead of the Untitled Disney-Pixar Inside the Mind Film, it will be called Inside Out. Which we mostly knew, but it’s good to have that point settled. The temp title was just awkward.
The movie will take place inside a human mind, and more specifically will be “told from the perspective of the emotions inside the mind of a little girl.” The art above is really all we’ve got as far as visuals for the film, but expect more soon. [ComingSoon]
After the break, a Monsters University featurette features director Dan Scanlon explaining the new film, and giving up quite a few little plot points. Read More »
Outside of naming a certain director for a certain sequel taking place in a galaxy far, far away, I can’t think of a better way for Disney to kick off 2013 than looking ahead to three upcoming Pixar films. This year will bring the prequel Monsters University, but we already know the three films on Pixar’s slate after that. 2014 will bring Bob Peterson‘s The Good Dinosaur, 2015 will bring Pete Docter‘s inside the mind movie, possibly called The Inside Out, and then Lee Unkrich will release his latest film, a still untitled movie about a family that takes place on the Mexican Day of the Dead.
Concept art from all three of those films has just been revealed in the form of a Pixar holiday card and the images are our first real look at work from any of the films. Check it out below. Read More »
I didn’t ever expect to see any link between metal and a Pixar movie, but we’re living in a wonderful world. And so the metal band Mastodon, which has already scored Jonah Hex (twice!) and contributed music to the Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie, will have a song in Monsters University. Weird, right? The info comes straight from the band, and I can confirm that it isn’t a joke. Unfortunately I can’t tell you just how the song is being used, but expect to hear it in a good context to bring the band into the film’s world.
We probably won’t know any more until Monsters University is much closer to opening, on June 21, 2013.
After the break, Pete Docter‘s new Pixar film — the one taking place inside a young woman’s mind — is reportedly titled Inside Out; Disney’s Snow Queen retelling Frozen gets a new logo; and an animation director’s roundtable breaks down the business.
