Pixar Sets Dinosaur, Day of the Dead Films
Disney Animation and Pixar boss John Lasseter and actor John C. Reilly presented footage from their upcoming animated feature film Wreck-It Ralph at CinemaCon today. The movie follows the eponymous villain (voiced by Reilly) of an 8-bit video game who yearns to be a good guy. The Rich Moore-directed movie is a valentine to video games, including clever nods to everything from Donkey Kong to Halo.
Pixar Animation boss John Lasseter made some announcements about the studio's upcoming slate at yesterday's CinemaCon in Las Vegas. He announced two new projects at last year's D23 expo, one of which was an untitled dinosaur film. That movie now has a title: The Good Dinosaur.
Here's the official synopsis for the film, which opens May 30, 2014: "What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? This hilarious, heartfelt and original tale is directed by Bob Peterson (co-director/writer, Up; writer, Finding Nemo) and produced by John Walker (The Incredibles, The Iron Giant).
Lasseter also formally announced Dia De Los Muertos, a new film slated for 2015 from the Toy Story 3 duo of director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson. It will delve into the vibrant Mexican holiday also known as the Day of the Dead.
