Pixar Animation Studios sent ComingSoon.net
a really fun holiday gift: a fold-out card featuring concept art
for four of their upcoming films. We love just about everything
Pixar does, almost as much as our kids love it, and are excited to
learn more about the new films.
In the meantime, here's a little sneak peek:
We can tell from the Monsters University
website that's already up-and-running that this is going to be
a great prequel to the family favorite "Mosnters, Inc.". To hold
you over until the set theater release date this June, click around
the website and learn more about the coolest monster school.
We love learning about dinosaurs. During visits to the Field,
you practically have to drag us away from staring at Sue. So you
could say we're pretty excited for this May 2014 release. According
Wiki, "The Good Dinosaur" is about a world in which the
cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually
missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became
extinct. Sounds pretty cool, as long as those giant dinosaurs don't
get all "Jurassic Park" on us.
There isn't a lot of information out yet about this currently
untitled film but just like all of our favorite DisneyPixar movies,
we're sure it will be an exciting journey. All that's been promised
is a trip inside the mind, which sounds pretty interesting to us.
Plus, we can already imagine those little guys in the concept art
as plush toys.
We learned a lot about Dia de los Muertos this year through a
visit to Pilsen and are excited to see this cultural holiday
get more recognition. This film isn't scheduled to be released
until 2016 but it's already 2013 and time seems to fly by these
days. We don't know a lot about the film yet, except the team that
created "Toy Story 3" is behind it and that's a great sign.
All four of these films sound great and we can't wait to see
more art and the movie trailers for each.
