Pixar to Celebrate Día de los Muertos

It’s Día de los Muertos for Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3). The untitled Pixar movie will celebrate the vibrant Mexican holiday known as Day of the Dead, in which the deceased are remembered and honored Nov. 1-2, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day. Darla K. Anderson (Toy Story 3) will produce.

Meanwhile, Bob Peterson’s dino movie gets a title and a release date: The Good Dinosaur (May 30, 2014). What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pete Sohn (Partly Cloudy) co-directs and John Walker (The Incredibles) produces.

Also, Pete Docter’s untitled “Inside the Mind” feature (exploring the emotions of a girl, the second female protagonist in Pixar history) was also given the release date of June 19, 2015. Ronnie del Carmen (Up) co-directs and Jonas Rivera (Up) produces.

Meanwhile, yesterday at CinemaCon 2012 in Las Vegas, John Lasseter brought out John C. Reilly to promote Disney’s next animated feature, Wreck-It Ralph (Nov. 2), about an arcade video game baddie-turned nice guy, directed by Rich Moore.
