Pixar Announces Projects About ‘The Good Dinosaur,’ Inside The Mind and Dia De Los Muertos

During all the festivities of CinemaCon in Las Vegas this week, the folks at Pixar announced several things. One being that their latest film Brave would help test Dolby’s Atmos format, a revolutionary new sound system that we reported on yesterday. The other — perhaps bigger — announcement is that they gave updates on three upcoming projects, all from original stories and all featuring Pixar veteran directors. Can’t wait to hear about Up co-director Bob Peterson’s dinosaur movie? How about Pete Docter’s trip inside the human mind? Or maybe you’re interested in Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich’s film about Dia De Los Muertos. It’s an interesting slate, about which we’ve compiled all the available details just after the jump.

The Good Dinosaur

Directed by Bob Peterson, Peter Sohn co-directing. U.S. Release Date May 30, 2014. What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? This hilarious, heartfelt and original tale is directed by Bob Peterson (co-director/writer, “Up;” writer, “Finding Nemo”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles,” “The Iron Giant”).

Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside The Mind

Directed by Pete Docter, Ronnie del Carmen co-directing. Pixar takes audiences on incredible journeys into extraordinary worlds: from the darkest depths of the ocean to the top of the tepui mountains in South America; from the fictional metropolis of Monstropolis to a futuristic fantasy of outer space. From director Pete Docter (“Up,” “Monsters, Inc.”) and producer Jonas Rivera (“Up”), the inventive new film will take you to a place that everyone knows, but no one has ever seen: the world inside the human mind.

Untitled Pixar Movie About Dia de los Muertos 

Directed by Lee Unkrich. From director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson, the filmmaking team behind the Academy Award®-winning “Toy Story 3,” comes a wholly original Pixar Animation Studios film that delves into the vibrant holiday of Día de los Muertos.

This is all we know for now. Of course, if anything else comes available, you’ll be the first to know.
