It has been an incredible journey for the Toy Story gang. Though Toy Story 3 is hailed as one of the best of the franchise, many questioned the need to have another sequel about Woody and Buzz. Well, everything seen and heard in Toy Story 4 validates that need.

An emotionally and visually beautiful epilogue to Pixar’s flagship films, Toy Story 4 takes some bold risks by inserting heavy themes and thrusts beloved characters into unfamiliar territory. By doing so, we get to see these treasured characters in a whole new light and are given even more reasons to continue loving them. Most importantly, the film continues to have all the heart and the humor that the franchise is known for. Check out my full review here below.

Toy Story 4

Pixar’s Toy Story 4 is a return to familiar ground that is fully realized with groundbreaking animation and riveting storytelling. The heart of these films is the relationships that people have with their toys, and a toy’s purpose in life to give kids joy. And in Toy Story 4, it questions what makes a toy a toy? It’s the kind of film that will see one new toy go through an existential crisis and a dear friend reunite with a lost love who presents the idea of paradise for a toy.

For the past few weeks, we have shown you what it was like to visit Pixar, shown the technological advances, and shared a roundtable discussion with Toy Story 4 director Josh Cooley and producer Mark Nielsen.

Now we are sharing some of the things that we have learned about Toy Story 4. Check out the 40 things we learned about the highly anticipated animated sequel including the development of a story, how a virtual camera works, designing sets and characters, and more, below.

Stranger Things Netflix banner

The number of directors for the first season of the Netflix series Stranger Things was limited to three people. The Duffer Brothers helmed six of the eight episodes, while Shawn Levy was behind the lens for two. Since the show caught fire last year, it comes as no surprise that other creative filmmakers would want to direct an episode or two in Season 2. One of those people will be Pixar’s very own Andrew Stanton, the director of Disney’s Finding Nemo, Wall-E, Finding Dory, and the underrated John Carter.

Meanwhile, The Duffer Brothers discussed why they needed to change some of the episodes for Season 2. Because apparently the internet is way too smart and have discovered some connections. Check out more on these stories here below.

Sequels are becoming more popular over at Pixar. While the studio prides itself more on its original storytelling, their sequels are not to be overlooked. As we have seen, these sequels are not just an easy cash grab, they have heartfelt meaningful stories that are able to tap into every emotion. Finding Dory is proof of that. Not even 13 years since the release of the film was enough for fans or Ellen DeGeneres to forget about the impact that Finding Nemo has created. Now the Blu-ray is out, and we are here to review all the special features for you. Don’t forget to check out our review of the film. Check it out below.

How ‘Finding Dory’s Influential Message Is Universal In More Ways Than One

Finding Dory

No one could have ever imagined that there would be a sequel to Finding Nemo. And yet, 13 years after the film’s release, we are getting one. But Finding Dory isn’t exactly the kind of film you’d expect to see, especially in a sequel. If anything, the film can stand on its own, and you don’t even need to watch Nemo to know what is going on in Dory. In it, we see that Dory is able to recall a once long-lost memory of her parents, and sets out on a journey with Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo (Hayden Rolence). Together, they swim across the Pacific to an aquarium sanctuary, where Dory meets some old friends and makes some new ones too. But there is a real heartfelt message that may hit close to home for some. Remember, Dory suffers from short-term memory loss, and she sees that as a debilitating weight that can frustrate and worry those around her. But her optimism and upbeat personality, plus living by the “just keep swimming” mantra, gives her the spirit she needs to carry on and look for new ways to do things in her own way.

We were recently invited to sit down with a group of journalists to talk the to cast and directors of the film to talk about that message and how it really isn’t meant for one specific group of people but something that is more universal.

Check out what they had to say after the jump.

FINDING DORY

Finding Dory

Cast: Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Hayden Rolence, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Kaitlin Olsen, and Ed O’Neill
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 103 Minutes
Release Date: June 17th, 2016

Sequels are no longer a rarity over at Pixar. While most of their films do not necessarily warrant one, they have proven that they do not make sequels just to cash in. It’s through years (approximately four) of research and perfecting the script that they can give us something that is more than satisfying than we could ever expect. So imagine our surprise when it was announced that Pixar would be following up Finding Nemo, 13 years later no less, with Finding Dory, a heartwarming and touching film that has a truly powerful message.

Our full review below (spoilers!).

‘Finding Dory’ Trailer: Remember That One Time A Fish Swam Her Way Home

Finding Dory

As beautifully animated as Finding Nemo was, the real star of the show was Dory (voice of Ellen DeGeneres), a regal blue tang fish whose memory lasted as long as she could swim. The character provided the humor in a story about a father searching for his son. But the film didn’t really explore how Dory ended up in Australian waters or how she became so forgetful. Flash forward to 2016, and we are getting a sequel called Finding Dory.

Disney•Pixar has just released a new trailer for the film that takes a look at Dory’s journey across the pacific in search for her family. Along the way we see familiar faces, meet new friends, and learn that aquatic animals don’t like to be poked or prodded by human fingers. Check out the full trailer below.
