The first announced feature, currently operating under the tongue-in-cheek title ofThe Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs, will be directed by Bob Peterson, an animator, screenwriter and director at the studio who’s probably best known for voicing the dog Doug in Pixar’s Up!.
Due in theaters during the 2013 holiday season, the film will exist in an alternate version of our world where the asteroid that hit the planet, wiping out the dinosaur population, missed.
People and dinos co-exist, just like the Flintstones! We’ll have to be patient — it is currently scheduled for the holiday season of 2013.
And the summer of 2014, Pete Docter of “Up” and “Monsters Inc.” will bring us a Pixar movie that is about the brain, where ideas come from. It makes me think of Epcot’s delightful “Cranium Command.”
Before that, we can look forward to next summer’s “Brave,” Pixar’s first movie with a female lead, and the prequel, “Monster University,” with more from Mike and Sully.
