When you think of the all-time great production companies in film one of the most popular these days is the Pixar group, their movies are almost always great even when they’re “bad” it’s still better than some of the “good” movies released by other companies. (wikipedia) It’s tough to pick a true favorite from their roster of films, when you think that you’ve selected your favorite suddenly another one springs into it’s place, as much as I love the original Toy Story it’s hard to say it’s better than Up. (mic) They’re so good at putting together films that they’ve even been able to make sequels to films that were just as impressive if not more impressive than their predecessors, I mean who would honestly ever rank The Godfather Three above The Godfather? (rottentomatoes) There are few companies that can mention they’re going to release a movie and immediately have people interested in seeing that movie immediately, whether it’s in theaters or direct to video you know you’re getting quality for whatever price you pay to see the movie. (typepad) The history of Pixar films is great, but their upcoming slate of films looks to be just as impressive with another stellar sequel in the mix as well. (pixar)
One of the more intriguing movies planned from Pixar is the story of an eleven year old girl and her emotions, taking us on a trip through what goes through the mind of a child who’s uprooted from one setting and lands in a completely different setting. (wikipedia) This promises to be another classic from the people at Pixar, with the co-director of Up taking the helm of the film he’s promised that he’ll be breaking new ground for a Pixar animated film by doing some “stretchy and squashy” things. (hollywoodreporter) I’m really looking forward to seeing the movie, and not just because it’s got Lewis Black playing a role that he was essentially born to play in the emotion of anger, but because it looks like it’ll be a beautiful movie just like everything else Pixar has done in years past. (cinemablend) After this we’ll be treated to The Good Dinosaur, a movie that was pushed back this year and has broken a streak going back to 2005 of at least one Pixar film released per year. Then the sequel to the massively popular Finding Nemo, the aptly titled Finding Dory in 2016, the next couple years look awesome for Pixar and I, for one, can’t wait to see what comes of it.
