At this weekend’s D23 convention, Disney gave tidbits about two upcoming projects from Pixar.
The new Pixar projects are untitled but they are original creations and will follow upcoming releases Brave and Monsters University, according to Disney/Pixar chief John Lasseter.
In addition to Docter’s project, the Untitled Pixar Movie about Dinosaurs will be directed by Pixar veteran Bob Peterson and produced by John Walker.
The movie is aiming for a holiday 2013 release. The story is set in a world where an asteroid didn’t hit the Earth, thus allowing the creatures to keep living and evolving.
An image of concept art shown to the hall was of a small humanoid silhouette on top of the head of a brachiosaurus.
Peterson said he was inspired by a World’s Fair he attended as a child where he saw animatronic dinos created by Disney.
Docter’s project is the Untitled Pixar Movie that You See Inside the Brain, which is being produced by Jonas Rivera.
It’s eyeing a summer 2014 release and is in the early stages of work. Docter said the story will take the audience inside the head, “how we forget, why certain songs get stuck in our heads.”
“It’s a place that we’ve all been to but have never seen,” he said.
