Future Disney Pixar Films: Get the Popcorn Ready!

Kids love Pixar, and so do the parents who bring them to the theater. Here is a sneak peek at Disney Pixar films coming out in the next few years:

Inside Out

Release date: June 19, 2015.

A second Pixar film has been announced with a release date of June 19, 2015. The general concept appears to revolve around the world that exists inside a young girl's mind. Her emotions will be represented by different characters, and will be unlike any Pixar movie created thus far. The film is headed up by Pete Docter, who has a teenage daughter named Elle.

The Good Dinosaur

Release date: November 25, 2015.

Originally scheduled for release on November 27, 2013,the Dinosaur movie has been pushed back to November 25, 2015. Thomas Newman is creating the score for this film (he wrote the scores for Finding Nemo and Wall-E).

A dinosaur themed movie is due out for the holiday season in 2014. This Pixar film is based on the following original idea (presented at the D23 convention in Anaheim, California):

"What if that life-changing asteroid missed Earth? Director Bob Peterson’s hilarious tale depicts a world where dinosaurs never went extinct."

Finding Dory

Release date: June 17, 2016

Ellen Degeneres will return as Dory in this sequel to Finding Nemo. In this film, Dory will meet her loved ones and understand the meaning of family. Albert Brooks has signed on as the voice of Marlin, Nemo's father. Andrew Stanton (who directed Wall-E) is returning to the helm for this sequel.

Dia de los Muertos Film (Untitled)

Release date: unknown

Director Lee Unkrich (who directed Finding Nemo, Toy Story 3, and Monsters, Inc.) will direct this film, which will probably have a release-date near Halloween. This film will be an interesting take on the traditional Mexican holiday known as The Day of the Dead.

Rumor: Toy Story 4

In an interview with BBC, Tom Hanks stated "I think there will be [Toy Story 4], yeah. Yeah, yeah. I think they’re working on it now," he told interviewer Tim Muffett. "There you go." In a second interview with CNN's showbiz Tonight, Hanks stated, "I understand it's happening and if it is, I hope they'll hire me." The Internet Movie Database (IMDB) lists Toy Story 4 with a 2015 release date.

Luxo Jr.: The First Pixar Film

Previous Pixar Movies: 1995-2011

Toy Story (1995): The first full-length Pixar movie, Toy story explores the relationship between a young boy (Andy) and his toys. Will a brand-new astronaut toy replace his long-standing favorite cowboy? Themes of friendship and loyalty are explored in this film. Rated G.

A Bug's Life (1998): Ants work hard for a living, and indolent grasshoppers swarm the ant's stockpile of winter food. Flik, a young, imaginative ant, stages a rebellion against the grasshoppers' thieving ways and leads a rag-tag band of insects to victory. Rated G.

Toy Story 2 (1999): Andy has aged in this sequel to the original Toy Story Movie. He goes to summer camp, and a toy collector kidnaps his favorite toy cowboy Woody. Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the toy brigade band together to rescue their cowboy friend from his fate on a toy museum shelf. Rated G.

Monsters, Inc (2001): Mike and Sully are monsters who work for a corporation in the monster world. The "fossil fuel" powering the monster world are screams gathered from frightened children, though the monsters really mean no harm. A tiny toddler named Boo accidentally ends up in the monster's world, and it turns out the monsters are far more afraid of children than the other way around. Rated G.

Finding Nemo (2003): The lone surviving child of a widower clown fish, Nemo struggles against his overprotective upbringing. He is captured by a dentist, who plans to give Nemo to his deranged daughter: Nemo finds inner strength to escape his aquarium prison, and Nemo's father finds the strength to give his son independence. Rated G.

Wall E (2008): Long after the Earth is abandoned because of increasing pollution, the last remaining robot (Wall-E) continues his duties to clear the trash from the Earth. Wall-E has developed humanistic emotions, and longs to find someone to share his life with. Enter Eva, a robot designed to search the Earth for signs of returning life: she and Wall-E band together to save the planet's only tree, and to return humanity to life on Earth. Rated G.

Up (2009): An incredibly touching story about life's purpose and old regrets, Up follows the life of an elderly man who believes his life's dreams have been failures. As the man is threatened with a forced placement into a nursing home, he unleashes a plethora of balloons to spirit himself away to South America. Unfortunately, his pesky little neighbor is on the front porch at the time of the fly-away. The little boy helps the man realize his life dreams were realized, after all. Rated G.

Toy Story 3 (2010): Andy is grown-up and ready to go to college, but what will become of the toys? In a mix-up of donation boxes, the toys are accidentally given to a daycare center, where they are mauled and kept under the despotic leadership of a large, purple bear. This film explores the themes of growing up and letting go. Rated G.

Cars 2 (2011): In this much-anticipated sequel, Lightning McQueen and his friends will take an international journey and race against the fastest cars in the world.

Mérida (voiced by Reese Witherspoon) will struggle with her fate as a royal daughter and the desires of her heart, unintentionally causing a maelstrom of dark magic to strike her beloved home. Brave was shown with a Pixar short film titled "La Luna." Brave also tested out Dolby's new sound system, called Atmos.

Monsters University (2013): Monsters, Inc 2 is not a sequel, but a prequel to the original film. What is Monster College like? Find out as this film explores Mike and Sully during their college days at Monstropolis' University of Fear. As it turns out, Mike and Sully were not always the best of friends!
