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.
Disney's newest film, "Big Hero 6," opens this week. And some eagle-eyed viewers have already spotted some Easter eggs in the trailer that was released over the summer. An Easter egg, as it relates to movies, is when the movie's creators hide something in the film that's an intentional inside joke.
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.
