First up is Monsters University. No great surprises here, we have trailers and promotional imagery to back this one up, it is just a nice little bonus to see some lovely, detailed concept art for the upcoming prequel.
Next The Good Dinosaur, directed by Up co-director Bob Peterson. The film posits the idea of what would happen if the cataclysmic asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs actually missed and lead to a world where humans and dinosaurs lived side-by-side. This could be something special; kids love dinosaurs, most non-creationist adults love dinosaurs (though they won't admit it, and I'm sure a few creationists are partial to them too) and it's courtesy of a talent responsible for one of Pixar's masterpieces. The Good Dinosaur is set for release in 2014.
Following The Good Dinosaur is the Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside the Mind. Coming from Up director Pete Docter, little is known about this title beyond what the placeholder title tells us. The concept art seems to indicate the setting for this film will be within a child's mind, which makes sense for the studio, if it wants to appeal tp children (and avoid any weird Freudian qualities). The nameless project is set for release in 2015.
Finally, we have another anonymously titled project, The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dia de los Muertos. From Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich,this title is about the Mexican holiday known as the Day of the Dead. Could we expect some ghoulish Pixar fun? Considering 2012's wonderful trend of horror-slanted family animation, that would be most welcome. The title is set for release in 2016.
So the future looks bright for Pixar, if they can pull out of this mild critical descent they have found themselves in, they could be adorning their mantles with more Oscars before we know it.
