Con l'uscita nelle sale di Monsters University, la Disney introduce alla convention D23 i tre prossimi film prodotti dalla Pixar che ci accompagneranno sino al 2016: The Good Dinosaur, Inside Out e Finding Dory.
The Good Dinosaur, Lasseter said, was sparked by "the biggest what-if question ever." He then rolled a short animated introduction that showed a giant asteroid heading for the dinosaur-ridden Earth 65 million years ago -- and missing the planet altogether.
65 million years later, it turns out, dinosaurs have become farmers. Another delightful video clip showed them hard at work: brontosauruses digging furrows; stegosauruses doing the threshing; triceratopses acting as bulldozers.
The plot of The Good Dinosaur revolves around Arlo, a 70-foot tall apatosaurus, who discovers the first human being ever seen by dinosaur-kind: a boy hunter named Spot. [...]
Previously known only under the working title The Pixar Movie that Takes You Inside the Mind, the second movie on Pixar's slate is called Inside Out. Lasseter joked that Disney's marketing department had saddled him with the title.
Inside Out, set for 2015, follows a teenage girl called Riley, who becomes a fish out of water when her family moves from Minnesota to San Francisco, Calif. More precisely, it follows five emotions inside her mind (above): Anger (played by Lewis Black), Fear (played by Bill Hader), Sadness (played by The Office's Phyllis Smith), Disgust (played by Mindy Kailing, also formerly of The Office) and Joy (played by Amy Poehler). [...]
Finding Dory will be set one year after the original film, when a tragic event forces our favorite blue fish's "homing instincts" to kick in. Director Andrew Stanton said that he'd often been asked about a Nemo sequel, but that there was only one question left hanging from the original movie that interested him: where was Dory's family, anyway?
We saw concept art of a few of them, and Pixar revealed that Dory's mother, Jenny, will be voiced by Diane Keaton. Her father Charlie will be played by Eugene Levy. But that's not all. Stanton said Dory's family turns out to be "bigger than she imagined," and featured a number of sea creatures including an otter, and a beluga whale voiced by Modern Family actor Ty Burrell.
