We’ve already filled you in on everything you ever wanted to know about the making of Finding Dory. Now get a look at some lovely concept art—we’re already in love with Hank the cranky octopus!—for Andrew Stanton’s Finding Nemo sequel, which will be in theaters June 17.
For almost 10 years, Finding Nemo was Pixar’s most successful film. And yet, other movies kept getting sequels while our favorite fish story didn’t. At last, in 2010, writer/director Andrew Stanton got inspired. Five years later, on June 17, Finding Dory is coming to theaters.
Master toy customizer Sam Kwok has turned Hot Toys’ sixth-scale Starboost Iron Man XXXIX figure into what Toy Story’s Buzz Lightyear would almost certainly look like in real life. If Tony Stark ever started doing children’s birthday parties, this is definitely the armor he should wear.
Often, one of the best things about a new Pixar movie is getting to see a brand new short film beforehand. These are Oscar-quality animations with a huge variety of subjects, and the latest is no different. It’s called Piper.
Could a relationship between an astromech droid and an anthropomorphised articulated desk lamp ever really work? Debatable. But it’s worth a shot, because if it did, their offspring would be this fantastic R2-D2 Architectural Desk Lamp that ThinkGeek is now selling for $60.
If there’s one thing animators love, its sneaking visual references into movies, and Disney’s geniuses are some of the best at it.
In the second Finding Dory trailer, we’ve got a lot more scenes of Dory and Marlin on the journey to find Dory’s family. It’s completely charming, and yet somehow exactly the same as Finding Nemo—right down to what looks like Dory’s terrifying capture by humans.
For several years, Pixar’s animated films made Pixar’s parent company, Disney, look good. And meanwhile, Disney’s own in-house animation studio was going through a rough patch—the company wasn’t making the kind of films people expected from Walt Disney’s namesake.
Pixar has lost one of its most talented screenwriters. Daniel Gerson, who co-wrote both Big Hero 6 and the Monsters Inc. movies, passed away this weekend after a battle with brain cancer. He was 49.
Ratatouille has never looked better than it did in the Pixar movie. A perfect accordion of vegetables of different colors winding themselves in a pot glazed with visual deliciousness. Which makes sense because one of the best chefs in the world, Thomas Keller, imagined the recipe up for the animators at Pixar to make.…
Over the past few years, fans have complained that Pixar has become increasingly depended on sequels. That changed this year with two brand new, original films, one of which—Inside Out—was a runaway critical and financial hit. So, of course, now the sequel talks have begun.
Pixar movies are great because of their characters and their storylines but also because they pay homage to the great movies that came before it. And they’re not even’t imitating animation movies, it’s a tribute to cinema, it’s live action films that get paid the form of flattery. Many of the scenes you can recognize…
This is a cool experiment: Jordan Hanzon has gone and taken Pixar’s Inside Out and edited out all of the scenes from Riley and her parent’s heads: the result is a poignant story of a girl adjusting to a new place.
At first glance, The Good Dinosaur looks weird as hell, even by Pixar standards. It’s the story of an alternate world where the dinosaurs never went extinct, and it’s a “boy and his dog” story where the “boy” is an apatosaurus and the “dog” is a human child named Spot. But one layer below the surface, this is a very…
We finally have the first trailer for the Finding Nemo sequel–and it focuses on what we all knew the plot is: Dory trying to find her family.
Way back in the mists of time, Aaron Sorkin was approached by Pixar—in the form of Steve Jobs—to write an animated feature for the studio. It never materialized, but Sorkin’s still got that idea kicking around.
Inside Out’s refreshing look at the human psyche focused on the personification of 5 main emotions: Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger, and Disgust. But the movie began with quite a few extra emotions running around in Riley’s brain—26 of them, in fact.
It’s kind of amazing that The Good Dinosaur is hitting theaters in a few weeks. And it actually looks great. Just a couple of years ago, we kept hearing The Good Dinosaur was in the midst of a huge creative crisis. So we talked to director Pete Sohn and producer Denise Ream to find out how they saved the movie.
Star Wars fan or not, you probably got emotional watching the most recent trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Even if you were just annoyed at how excited everyone else was, it made you feel something, and now everyone’s favorite feelings have weighted in.
Pixar’s new movie The Good Dinosaur takes place in a bizarre alternate history—what if the dinosaurs weren’t wiped out 65 million years ago? But the process of making this wild, ambitious film required a very different counterfactual: What if the way animators create scenery and characters had been turned on its head?
