Pete Docter is the guy behind some of Pixar’s best films. He wrote and directed “Up” and “Monsters, Inc.” and provided the story for “Wall•E.” Any time there’s an announcement about a new Docter project it is exciting but this one sounds especially good. Collider reports that in an interview with Pixar founder and now Disney animation head John Lasseter last night with Charlie Rose, Docter’s new project will take us inside the mind of a young girl. It sounds a little like the adorable “Cranium Command” show at Epcot.
It’s great news that Pixar is working on another story about a girl (their first, “Brave,” is due out next year), but we won’t see it for a while, probably not until 2014. Before that, we have the prequel to “Monsters, Inc.,” “Monsters University” and then an untitled movie about dinosaurs to look forward to.
