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.
The INSIDER Summary:
• "Finding Dory" missed out on an Oscar nomination.• It's yet another sign that Pixar is no longer the top animation studio.• Pixar has produced some highlights in the past years, but it's a mixed bag.
