From the Academy Award nominated team of director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.”) and co-director Bob Peterson comes “Up,” a comedic adventure taking off (and lifting spirits) in summer 2009. Carl Fredricksen spent his entire life dreaming of exploring the globe and experiencing life to its fullest. But at age 78, life seems to have passed him by, until a twist of fate (and a persistent 8-year old Wilderness Explorer named Russell) gives him a new lease on life. “Up” takes audiences on a thrilling journey where the unlikely pair encounter wild terrain, unexpected villains and jungle creatures. When seeking adventure next summer â€” look “Up.”
What happens when the last remaining male and female blue-footed newts on the planet are forced together by science to save the species, and they canâ€™t stand each other? Thatâ€™s the problem facing Newt and Brooke, heroes of “newt,” the Pixar film by seven-time Academy Award winner for sound Gary Rydstrom, and director of Pixarâ€™s Oscar-nominated short, “Lifted.” Newt and Brooke embark on a perilous, unpredictable adventure and discover that finding a mate never goes as planned, even when you only have one choice. Love, it turns out, is not a science.
The Bear and the Bow (now known as Brave) synopsis:
A rugged and mythic Scotland is the setting for Pixarâ€™s action-adventure “The Bear and the Bow.” The impetuous, tangle-haired Merida, though a daughter of royalty, would prefer to make her mark as a great archer. A clash of wills with her mother compels Merida to make a reckless choice, which unleashes unintended peril on her fatherâ€™s kingdom and her motherâ€™s life. Merida struggles with the unpredictable forces of nature, magic and a dark, ancient curse to set things right. Director Brenda Chapman (“The Prince of Egypt,” “The Lion King”) and the storytelling wizards of Pixar conjure humor, fantasy and excitement in this rich Highland tale. Itâ€™s voice talent is as follows: Reese Witherspoon, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson.
Cars 2 synopsis:
All the worldâ€™s a racetrack as racing superstar Lightning McQueen zooms back into action, with his best friend Mater in tow, to take on the globeâ€™s fastest and finest in this thrilling high-octane new installment of the “Cars” saga. Mater and McQueen will need their passports as they find themselves in a new world of intrigue, thrills and fast-paced comedic escapades around the globe. “Cars 2” is being directed by Brad Lewis, producer of the Oscar-winning film “Ratatouille.”
We all know that Ratatouille is Pixar’s latest movie but what about next year and the year after that? We’ve got you covered!
For 2008, Pixar has WALL-E lined up, directed by Andrew Stanton (writer/director of Finding Nemo). The story goes something like this: â€œThe year is 2700. WALLâ€¢ E, a robot, spends every day doing what he was made for. But soon, he will discover what he was meant for.â€
In 2009 we’ll be treated to Up, about a 70-year old man who befriends a clueless young Wilderness Ranger. He travels the globe, fights beasts and villains and eats dinner at 3:30 in the afternoon. Up will be directed by Pete Docter (Writer/Director: Monsters, Inc., Writer: Toy Story 1 and 2) and co-director Bob Peterson (Writer: Finding Nemo).
And last but certainly not least, Toy Story 3 will finally make its debut… in 2010. It will be directed by Lee Unkrich (co-driector of Toy Story 2 and Finding Nemo). They’re keeping the plot to this one secret for now, but whatever it is, I’m sure we’ll all love it.
To infinity and beyond!
