What Up would be like if Michael Bay directed it

At first glance I thought they totally missed the mark on this little edit of an Up trailer as it really feels like a Nolan film with all the drama and the WUuuuUUHHhUUHH music. Then the explosions start. Now that's some Michael Bay action.

First 'Inside Out' plot details revealed

It's been over four years since Inside Out -- the next project from Pixar -- was revealed. Now we finally have some plot details, and they...sound like somebody at Pixar has been digging around in DreamWorks' garbage. From th...

Disney planning Cars 3, The Incredibles 2
by Nick Valdez

Although I'm normally not a fan of sequels, I am a fan of Disney/Pixar sequels. You can argue back and forth over whether or not some of their films deserve sequels, but I'm glad they're coming. I'm one of the few people who loves the idea of Finding Dory, wants Toy Story 4 to happen, but all the while whined about not getting more of The Incredibles (It is one of the few 100s here on Flixist, after all). Not anymore. 

During the Disney shareholders meeting earlier today, Bob Iger announced Disney's plans for a third Cars film, and more importantly, a sequel to The Incredibles (written by Brad Bird, no less!). Both of these decisions make stupid amount of sense. Cars is a toy dynamo (with its Planes spin-off making money of its own), but Incredibles is definitely a surprise. 

But now that Disney is prepping a 3D re-release of Ratatouiile and The Incredibles, and The Incredibles figures are selling like hotcakes in that Disney Infinity game, it seems like the right time for an incredible revival.

Pixar short Party Central playing before Muppets

We've got a long wait for new Pixar movies since they've delayed The Good Dinosaur to 2015 (thankfully Disney is picking up the slack), but that doesn't mean we'll be completely devoid of the ol' Pixar magic in 2014. In the g...

2014 just got sadder: No Pixar films to be released

Well, it was a good run folks. Pixar was kicking out high quality animated movies on a yearly basis since 2006, but the fun has to come to a stop. We just can't have this many wonderfully human, touching and creative movies c...
