Disney Pixar Onward Title

Last year, at the D23 Expo 2017, Disney announced a previously untitled Pixar project that would be directed by Dan Scanlon (Monsters University) and produced by Kori Rae. At the time the film was described as a fantasy set in suburbia.

Now Disney and Pixar have titled their fantasy pic Onward. In addition to that, they have confirmed that the voice cast will include talents like Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, Octavia Spencer, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. More on the report below.

Keanu Reeves joins Toy Story 4

Toy Story 4 isn’t due out in theaters until next year, but we’ve already got two very interesting teasers featuring three new toys. In one trailer, Forky (Tony Hale) is seen going through somewhat of an existential crisis. In another trailer, Bunny (Jordan Peele) and Ducky (Keegan-Michael Key) had some trouble reciting Buzz Lightyear’s famous catchphrase: “To Infinity And Beyond.” But it looks like the toy chest is going to need some more room. That’s because Keanu Reeves will reportedly voice a new character in the film. More on the report, below.

Toy Story 4 Ducky and Bunny

Following the release of yesterday’s teaser trailer for Toy Story 4 comes the release of yet another teaser for the upcoming Disney•Pixar sequel.

While it doesn’t reveal any huge plot details, we do get introduced to two new toys: Ducky and Bunny. Voiced by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, respectively, Ducky and Bunny are two carnival toys who can’t quite remember Buzz Lightyear’s catchphrase. This leads up to all sorts of hilarious exchanges between the two. Check it out below.

Toy Story 4 header

It’s hard to imagine Toy Story continuing its story after the way the third installment of Pixar’s flagship franchise ended. But here we are with Toy Story 4 on the way. And despite some of the behind-the-scenes troubles that plagued the production, it looks like things moved on swimmingly. So now Pixar has released their first teaser trailer for Toy Story 4, which will see the return of Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), Jessie (Joan Cusack), and more. It also features a very first look at a brand new toy called Forky (Tony Hale). Only thing is, Forky is not like any of the others. Check it out below.

Incredibles 2

It has been 14 years since the first Incredibles hit theaters in 2004. Back then, superheroes weren’t such a big deal. But now they are at the forefront of the film industry. Most, if not all, are record-breaking films. But what separates Incredibles from the Marvels and the DCs is its timeless classic vibe.

Now Incredibles 2 has finally arrived. The sequel may look like it’s taking place in the ’60s, but it is able to connect to a modern audience with its likeable characters and universal stories. We were fortunate enough to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to the cast and director Brad Bird about the long-awaited sequel. During our time, Bird spoke about why it took so long to do a sequel, some of the changes he made, and making a film for everyone of all ages. Check out what he had to say, below.

‘Bao’ Interview: Domee Shi and Becky Neiman-Cobb On Pixar’s Newest Sweet (and Weepy) Short

Bao Pixar Short

Like all Pixar films, there is always one short that precedes the feature. And Incredibles 2 is no different. Before audiences get into the thrill of watching the animated superhero sequel, they will get to see the tasty Bao.

Pixar’s latest short is a play on the fairy tale story of the gingerbread man. In Bao, a Chinese mother is now adjusting to her new life as an empty nest parent. But she gets a second chance at motherhood when one of the baos she made comes to life. From there she learns to care for it as if it were one of her own. The word bao actually has two meanings. One means the delicious title food. Another means treasure. Directed by Domee Shi, the short draws a lot of inspiration from her own upbringing. So it makes sense that she use the dual meanings of Bao in the film to reflect upon her life. Where there was plenty of food and her mother treated her as one of her precious treasures.

We had a chance to talk to Shi and producer Becky Neiman-Cobb about capturing the spirit and Asian culture and putting it into the short, what its like to be the first Asian female director for a Pixar short, the road to becoming a Pixar short, and more below.

‘Incredibles 2’: Samuel L. Jackson On Being A Part Of A Super Family

The Incredibles 2

Incredibles 2 follows the Parr family as they enter a new phase in their lives. Helen Parr aka Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) takes up a new superhero job, leaving her husband Bob Parr (Craig T. Nelson) to hold down the fort in their new home. But he soon discovers that fatherhood isn’t as easy as it looks. Dash (Huck Milner) has trouble with his math homework. Violet (Sarah Vowell) has a crush on a boy, who had his memory wiped. And Jack-Jack has developed new powers. All of this is happening as Elastagirl is investigating a new villain who is bent on controlling the world through media screens.

So as Mr. Incredible is trying to live up to his name as a father, he will get some big help from his friend Frozone. Samuel L. Jackson returns to reprise the cool and icy hero. If his role in this and the Marvel Cinematic Universe tell us anything, it’s that he plays characters that are the glue that binds his superhero families together. Whether it’s the father-figure in The Avengers or the surrogate uncle Frozone in Incredibles 2, you can always rely on his character to be there.

We were invited to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to Jackson, the cast, and director Brad Bird about their experience on the sequel. Check out what Jackson had to say about his parental-like roles in Incredibles 2 and The Avengers, and if kids recognize if he’s Frozone, below.

John Lasseter

This was the only possible good outcome of this situation. Earlier this year, John Lasseter took a leave of absence from Pixar after allegations of sexual misconduct became public. The once happy animator who was the head of Pixar and helped change Disney Animation Studios to what it is now had two choices: stay on and be a pariah or make a graceful exit. The latter was chosen.

Reports confirm that Lasseter will be staying on at Pixar for the duration of the year. After that, he will no longer be working for the company that he helped build. More on the story here below.

Check Out The Honest Trailer For ‘Cars’ / ‘Cars 2’

Honest Trailer Cars Cars 2

With Pixar trying to ring the cash register again with Cars 3 next week, the gang at Screen Junkies decided to tackle the original 2006 film for their Honest Trailer. Solely based on the strength of the name Pixar, this movie somehow earned over $460 million worldwide. In full disclosure, I never saw Cars and never cared to. This was during the time where my younger sister was too old for kids movies, and I was yet to have kids so animation was kinda dead to me as a moviegoer. And when Cars 2 came out in 2011, all I ever heard about that one was, “it’s the worst Pixar movie ever.” Anyway, because… apparently someone demanded it, we’re getting a trilogy. So sit back and watch as narrator Jon Bailey shreds some of the lesser material in the Pixar catalog.

Check out the Honest Trailer below.
