Check out the first teaser for The Incredibles 2

There isn't much to go on in this teaser, honestly, but it does confirm a few things. Baby Jack Jack has a couple of new powers, and the Incredibles theme still pulls at my heartstrings the way it used too.  The sequel will ...

'The Incredibles 2' picks up where the first left off

The Incredibles ended on a high note, with the Parr family jumping into action to defeat The Underminer, and then a cut to black implying that their adventures would continue one day. Today we know that there is indeed a second Incredibles ...

Review: Cars 3

Pixar has made a name for itself these past few decades by delivering quality kids films that everyone can enjoy, regardless of age. Yet among those films, the Cars series is rarely included, and for good reason. The storytelling and jokes ...

New Cars 3 trailer looks sort of like Rocky III

That first trailer for Cars 3 was surprisingly somber. It teased tough times ahead for Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson). I sensed a troubling fall from grace, and maybe even a death. Okay, maybe not a death. But it was pretty darn ...

This Cars 3 teaser trailer is short and awesome

Cars is overall the worst Pixar series to date, but maybe Pixar is pulling a Toy Story 3 with the third film? This teaser trailer for Cars 3 is short, but it hits quite harder than I'd expect. It's already better than the first two, but I'm...

Newest Finding Dory trailer just keeps swimming

I know I'm supposed to look at sequel announcements with some kind of critical eye, but I just can't do that with Pixar. I've been waiting for a Finding Nemo sequel right after the first one ended, so every bit of Finding Dory footage is th...

Enjoy the first trailer for Finding Dory

Finding Dory is finally here... in trailer form. Of all the hotly anticipated Pixar films (which is all of them) I'm most hotly anticipating this one. This first trailer gives us a little hint at the story, which finds Dory, Nemo and M...

First Finding Dory poster swims in

I think I say this every time a Pixar sequel comes up, but it's worth saying: Toy Story 3 basically gave them carte blanche to do whatever the hell they want. When they knocked a third film out of the park when everyone was basically h...

Watch dinosaurs talk in a new trailer for The Good Dinosaur

In true Pixar fashion, the closer we get to the release of one of their new films, the more specific details we start to see in the trailers. While many early trailers for The Good Dinosaur showed off awe-inspiring shots of nature more than...

Toy Story 4 plot details are worrisome

After Toy Story 3 landed I promised I would never doubt Pixar again unless it involved automobiles, but they are making it hard. Good Morning America revealed our first plot details for Toy Story 4 and they seem a bit out of left ...

New Good Dinosaur trailer almost drowns a good dinosaur

Our first peak at The Good Dinosaur didn't give us much to go on, but it definitely wet our whistle for something that looks drastically different from previous Pixar films. Now, with this new trailer, we know it looks drastically diff...

New Pixar Short Brings Us Superpowered Hindu Heroes

One of the best parts of any new Pixar film (or most animated films these days) is the little short films before the feature. Usually these will showcase unsung animators, student works, or something the new guy was tasked to do. Of course,...

Review: Inside Out

I'm having a lot of trouble writing this review, and it's not because my computer crashed and deleted the almost finished product at one point. No, I'd already been through a few drafts before that and nothing was working. Usually I get in ...

First teaser trailer for Pixar's The Good Dinosaur

The Good Dinosaur has had a troubling development for the last few years. Hit with delays, losing a director, and a major reworking, the film we have now no longer resembles the original idea. It's hard to tell how much of the old ideas are...

Brad Bird to disappoint us all by making The Incredibles 2

"How would you like to make an incredible amount of money?" Brad Bird finally looked up from his desk. He hadn't gone home in two days - editing on Tomorrowland had been gruelling, and he wasn't even sure if the two hours of foota...

New image and logo from Pixar's The Good Dinosaur

For a Pixar film we've heard relatively little about The Good Dinosaur. That may be because it's run into so much trouble in production. It was delayed from a 2014 release to a November, 2015 release, but things seem to be rolling now as we...

Full trailer for Disney/Pixar's Inside Out is adorable

I've been digging how Pixar has been marketing their upcoming animated project, Inside Out. This latest trailer, like the last, may not feature any of the story, but it's got enough substance to chew on. I will never know what it's li...

Toy Story 4 is confirmed, gets 2017 release date

With the Toy Story series remaining a big marketing juggernaut long after the trilogy officially ended in 2010, it was almost inevitable that we'd get another film (especially seeing as how we're getting more and more TV specials featuring ...

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 ...

Disney planning Cars 3, The Incredibles 2

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 ...

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 grand tradition ...
