Pixar Announce Their 2014 & 2015 Films


By Garth Franklin Wednesday April 25th 2012 08:15AM

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 Día 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.

While Pixar's upcoming Dia De Los Muertos is still years out from release, we've already learned about a few key components of the film. For one, the feature will be helmed by Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkirch. It will also explore the Mexican culture's uplifting view of death. (The film's title, translated in English, means "Day of the Dead.")
Now, Disney and Pixar CCO John Lasseter has revealed a few more tidbits on the project, describing it as a "really a fantastic story of family." While no other details have been divulged, /Film speculates that the movie could center on a human protagonist who suffers from a death in the family and explores the ritualistic heritage of the Mexican holiday as a call to action -- an interesting theory, although this is purely based on an educated guess.
In the meantime, the studio still has several other projects lined up to come out before this one, including Monsters University, The Good Dinosaur and Pixar's untitled film set in the human mind

Disney Drops Controversial ‘Dia De Los Muertos’ Trademark Bid After Online Uproar

By JEN YAMATO | Tuesday May 7, 2013 @ 6:59pm PDTTags: Dia De Los Muertos, Disney, Trademark
After raising the ire of critics online, The Walt Disney Company quickly backed away today from its move to quietly trademark “Dia de los Muertos” for an upcoming Pixar animated feature. Criticism exploded on social media in recent days as word spread of Disney’s efforts to trademark the name associated with the November holiday. Although the studio still is moving forward on its Pixar project inspired by Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations, it has withdrawn its application to trademark “Dia de los Muertos” for various merchandising applications. “As we have previously announced, Disney-Pixar is developing an animated feature inspired by the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos”, the studio said in a statement. “Disney’s trademark filing was intended to protect any potential title for our film and related activities. It has since been determined that the title of the film will change, and therefore we are withdrawing our trademark filing”. Pixar’s Dia de los Muertos film was announced last April and will be directed by Oscar-winning Toy Story 3 helmer Lee Unkrich with Darla K. Anderson producing.

Probably for the best. Disney trademarking holiday names would catch who knows how many small independent businesses in their crosshairs if they ever wanted to get evil greedy.

I suppose just naming it "Los Muertos" would be a bit too grim for a Pixar movie.
