ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Beanstalks will grow, animals will walk upright, oceans will part, a forgetful fish will remember her family, and toys will fall in love in Disney and Pixar Animation's upcoming films.The studio previewed its animation slate and made a number of announcements at the fan convention D23 Expo on Friday, with special appearances from some voice actors including Ellen DeGeneres and Dwayne Johnson.
While Pixar's "Inside Out" may not be the emotional powerhouse that its predecessors "Toy Story" and "Up" were, its animation is unlike anything you've seen before. That's because the animation studio blew through its budget to do so.
Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) announced a fresh addition to the company’s hit animated movie franchise “Toy Story” on Thursday.
In a conference call with investors, Disney CEO Bob Iger said that Toy Story 4 will hit theaters on June 16, 2017. The company also revealed a new Star Wars movie, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, scheduled for release next year.
When Disney CEO Bob Iger casually announced "Toy Story 4" during an earnings call in November, it was a huge surprise. The successful Pixar trilogy didn't appear to need another followup. 2010's seemingly final film came full circle.
For the first time in 9 years a Pixar film will not be on the summer movie schedule. Fans will have to wait until next year's "The Good Dinosaur" to enjoy the vibrant colors and heartfelt story that has help make Pixar an animation giant for over a decade.
