Wall-E Lego design by Angus MacLane
This is a story very near and dear to my heart. We all know Pixarian Angus MacLane is a huge Lego collector and designer (and Wall-E is my favorite Pixar film). He submitted his Wall-E design as part to Lego and it has been selected by the Lego Ideas Review Board! A release date has been announced yet, but check out the video for more details!
Puppies and Pixar. What else could you ask for?
With Inside Out coming out first this year, it’s easy to forget that Pixar has two new films this year. The Good Dinosaur is flying a bit under the radar, but I’m very excited to see more. Disney-Pixar recently released the official logo and a new piece of concept art with Spot and Arlo by Pixarian Huy Nguyen.
The Good Dinosaur, directed by Pete Sohn, hits theaters on November 25, 2015.
As part of Pixar’s Holiday calendar, new concept art for Pete Docter’s Inside Out emerged. This beauty was done by legendary Pixarian Ralph Eggleston and Albert Lozano. So good….
Here’s another recently released image:
We’ve learned a lot about the five emotions that drive Inside Out, but director Pete Docter recently talked about 11 year-old Riley (voiced by Kaitlyn Dias) and her parents (voiced by Kyle McLachlan and Diane Lane) with the USA Today.
Docter on the parents role in the film: “I started out doing a film about growing up, but it turned out it’s a film about me watching my kids grow up,” he said. “These parents are realizing that their kid is changing. That’s difficult. But it is a part of life.” “These guys are the pillars on both sides. They are pivotal parts, knowing how joyful this kid Riley used to be and the young woman she’s changing into.”
On the emotions: “We’re intercutting to show what’s going on inside each of their heads behind the scenes,” reveals Docter. “What seems like a simple family dinner is actually fraught with all sorts of emotional angst and drama.”
Inside Out will be released on June 19, 2014.
Disney-Pixar has released the first full trailer for Pete Docter’s Inside Out. It’s exclusive in the U.S. to iTunes right now, but you can watch the UK trailer above. Some of the footage dates back to D23, but plenty is new. It’s basically just one scene and I think that’s a great way to avoid spoiling too much, too soon. Enjoy!
A plot summary for Andrew Stanton’s Finding Dory has been released as Pixar President Jim Morris spoke recently at a Brazilian Comic-Con.
The film will take place a few months after Finding Nemo. The film begins when Dory accompanies Nemo on a school field trip, when memories of her past and family are triggered. The gang will travel to California in an effort to find Dory’s parents and the majority of the film will take place at the Marine Biology Institute of California.
In addition to Ellen Degeneres (Dory) and Albert Brooks (Marline), the film will feature Eugene Levy as Dory’s father, Charlie, and Diane Keaton as Dory’s mother, Jenny. A Beluga whale named Bailey will be voiced by Ty Burrell. Finding Dory will be released on June 17, 2016.
To coincide with the character posters for Inside Out, we know have character videos to check out.
