COCO Pixar

It’s almost hard to find a “bad” Pixar film. Even their weakest efforts have some very likable qualities, and almost every film is just gorgeous to look at. But when it comes to Coco, the animation studio has really outdone themselves. The latest trailer is full of vibrant colors and emotional musical pieces that really get at the heart of the film’s plot, which follows a young boy named Miguel who, desperate to become an accomplished musician like his idol, finds himself in the land of the dead during Mexico’s celebrated Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead. A love for family and music sing true in what is obviously a love letter to Mexico.

Check out the full Coco trailer here below.

It wasn’t too long ago that Disney announced that Netflix would no longer stream their content and that they would be launching their own streaming service in 2019. At the time, many thought that meant only Disney and Pixar features, with Marvel and Star Wars continuing to stream at Netflix.

Now it appears that is no longer the case. Everything under the Disney sun will be moving over to the still unnamed streaming site. More on the story below.

Disney has a lot of properties. A lot of properties. In addition to its live-action and animation library, they also own Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm. So all of those films would appear on Netflix just a few weeks after they’ve been released on Blu-ray and DVD.

But it appears that streaming Disney movies on Netflix will come to an end in 2019. The studio has announced that it will be ending its deal with Netflix, and instead will be launching its own streaming service. More on the story below.

D23 Expo 2017: Pixar’s Untitled Fantasy Set In Suburbia

It really wouldn’t be much of a D23 Expo without the animation studio making a few new announcements. One of those announcements was from Pixar. During the presentation, Pixar head John Lasseter announced an all-new original project from Dan Scanlon (Monsters University) that takes some inspiration from his life story of losing his father at an early age.

The still-untitled film is set in a modern fantasy world where magic used to be a part of life. But because it was hard to do and very complicated, the people lost interest and soon technology took its place. This world is filled with elves, trolls, and sprites, which is something you would see on the side of a 70s van, commented Scanlon. Here, unicorns are basically like rodents who run amuck and scurry across the streets.

Coco

Pixar’s Coco will attempt to chart the world of the dead. Directed by Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) and Adrian Molina, the movie centers on Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez), who is magically transported to the world of the undead, and joins trickster Hector (voice of Gael García Bernal) on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.

We’ve already seen two trailers, and now the studio has previewed some brand new footage just in time for this year’s D23 Expo. So if you are already pleased by what you have seen so far, get ready to get even more excited by the footage description. Check it all out below.

D23 Expo 2017: ‘The Incredibles 2’

The Incredibles 2 is easily the most anticipated film out of the Pixar lineup. While the studio has had no problems with releasing sequels and prequels, finding the right story to tell for a new Incredibles film hasn’t been easy. But it looks like director Brad Bird has cracked the story, and now fans will get to see what the Parr family, or should I say The Incredibles, have been up to for the last 13 years give or take. Oh, and let’s not forget Frozone.

The presentation on Friday at this year’s D23 Expo first started out with a celebration of Enda Mode (Brad Bird) for all the great work she has done for superhero fashion. Check out the clip in the tweet below.

Cars 3

Pixar’s Cars 3 is a huge change of pace for the franchise. The film sees Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) blindsided when a new generation of faster, more powerful, and younger racers join the racing circuit. Determined to stay in the sport that he loves, Lightning goes through a new-age training regiment with the help of Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo), an eager young technician who has her own plans for winning. And while they might not agree on which training method works, they discover they need each other to reach their goals more than they realized.

We were fortunate enough to attend the press day of Pixar’s latest animated film where the attendees talked about who inspires them, some of their personal struggles, how one person can make the difference, and more. Check out what they had so say here below.

Movie Review: Cars 3

Cars 3

Cars 3
Director: Brian Fee
Screenwriters: Kiel Murray, Bob Peterson, Mike Rich
Cast: Owen Wilson, Cristela Alonzo, Armie Hammer, Larry the Cable Guy, Bonnie Hunt, Nathan Fillion, Kerry Washington, Lea DeLaria
Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG| 109 Minutes
Release Date: June 16, 2017

One of the things that continues to impress me about Pixar’s Cars franchise is its resiliency and heart. Though it is considered to be one of Pixar’s weakest franchises, it managed to become a trilogy. It may not resonate as much with fans as some other Pixar films do, but Cars has continually shown that it has what it takes to be great. Even if it that means it needed to take two “very safe” films to get there. So Cars 3 doesn’t take any huge risks, it takes an unconventional approach to possibly ending Lightning McQueen’s (Owen Wilson) story.

While that is a bit refreshing for the franchise, it does come with its own set of issues and concerns. All of it depends on how you look at it. Check out my full review below.
