Disney-Pixar have issued a press release about their upcoming projects after “Brave” this year and “Monsters University” next year. In the process came a few new tidbits of information.
First up the previously untitled Bob Peterson-helmed dinosaur film now has a name, “The Good Dinosaur”, and a release date of May 30th 2014. The premise is based on the idea that the cataclysmic asteroid that wiped out the giant dinosaurs didn’t arrive – as a result they never became extinct.
Then there’s first word on a new project from “Toy Story 3” director Lee Unkrich which is being described as a “wholly original Pixar Animation Studios film that delves into the vibrant holiday of Dia de los Muertos”. It currently has a “Dia de los Muertos” working title and rough 2015 date, however both could well change.
Finally the untitled Pete Docter-direct film has been pushed back a year to June 19th 2015. The only detail of the story is the same log line we’ve been hearing for some time – that the action will be set in the world inside the human mind.
