Pixar Go Prehistoric With Next Movie 'The Good Dinosaur'

Pixar fans rejoiced on Tuesday (April 24, 2012) after the animation studio announced its forthcoming projects at the CinemaCon 2012 convention in Las Vegas, according to Hit Fix.com. Perhaps the biggest news was that Pixar's formerly "untitled movie about Dinosaurs" now has a name: The Good Dinosaur.

Helmed by the 'Up' writer and co-writer Bob Peterson, the film will "present an alternate reality in which the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs missed Earth completely". The movie is expected to hit cinemas on May 30, 2014. The Good Dinosaur is described by the studio as a "hilarious, heartfelt and original tale", though details of casting are not yet known. Perhaps Peterson will want to stick with veterans Christopher Plummer and Edward Asner, who provided the voices for 'Up'. The second Pixar project - previously announced as D23 - is called now known as 'The Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside the Mind'. The movie is slated for a June 19, 2015 release and is being directed by Monsters Inc filmmaker Pete Docter. The official synopsis says the film will take audiences on "incredible journeys into extraordinary worlds: from the darkest depths of the ocean to the top of the tepui mountains in South America; from the fictional metropolis of Monstropolis to a futuristic fantasy of outer space".

The last of the projects has working title of 'The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dia de los Muertos' and will be directed by Toy Story 3's Lee Unkrich.
