Disney‘s D23 Expo is in full swing, and plenty of juicy morsels are finding their way out to the masses.
Of the many announcements made, two come from the folks at Pixar Animation, who revealed two upcoming movie projects. Neither of the two have titles at the moment, but they will be the next two films to follow Brave (June of 2012) and Monsters University, the Monsters, Inc. prequel that’s set to arrive in June of 2013.
While not much is known yet about the movies, there are a few details to be shared. The first movie—set for release on November 27th, 2013, just five months after Monsters University—will take place in a world where that devastating asteroid never hit Earth, and dinosaurs never went extinct. It will be directed by long–time Pixar animator and artist Bob Peterson, who more recently wrote Finding Nemo and Up, which he also co–directed with Pete Docter. Peterson has also lent his voice to numerous Pixar roles, including Roz from Monsters, Inc., Mr. Ray from Nemo, and Dug the dog from Up.
And speaking of Mr. Docter, he’ll be directing the next untitled Pixar movie announced at D23. This project has an interesting concept, as it will take place inside the human mind. The movie will be co-directed by Ronnie del Carmen, and is set for release on May 30th, 2014.
