The second untitled project announced comes from director Pete Docter. It plans to take viewers inside the human mind. No other plot details were discussed. It will come to theaters on May 30th of 2014.

    So we'll be getting a Pixar version of Inception? Cool.

      I just realized, maybe Pixar will finally expand on Dinoco :D

        no i meant Theodore Rex, not Dinosaur or We're Back the reason being that Theodore Rex is a punch line and the other two aren't kind of the way, say, if i had a bad meal i'd say "this is the Ishtar of meals" not "this is the Maid in Manhattan of meals" even though Isthar is technically better than Maid in Manhattan, it's just a better punch line

          @bawnian-dexeus I vaguely remember We're Back. But still, Pixar on Dinosaurs? Could be as epic as the first Land Before Time.

                  so... it's Theodore Rex followed by Osmosis Jones?

                    In regards to their Dino idea, dunno why but I just thought about it already being done (We're Back!). But that was an entirely different situation, am I making any sense?

                      Can't wait to see BOTH of these. And people think Pixar is going downhill?!

                        @moviegeek i think the mind movie sounds like Inception. Haha, just kidding.

                          I'm already looking forward to the first one. A Pixar dinosaur movie from the director of Up? Sign me up (no pun intended). As for the second, that has potential as well, since Docter also worked on Up, but damn...that first film is just a great combination. DINOSAURS. Gotta love 'em haha

                            @moviegeek Good idea! :P That'd be a cool cameo, though he is a toy so I doubt it lol

                              I wonder if Rex from Toy Story would make a funny cameo in the dinosaur one haha.

                                @corey i think the human mind one sounds better.

                                  "this new adventure will look at our modern world as though dinosaurs never went extinct"--Already sounds like it can be a masterpiece, easily.

                                  "

                                  It plans to take viewers inside the human mind."--This second one could be great as well. We'll see more on that!

                                  Both of these will be great! I LOVE Pixar.

                                    @moviegeek Agreed, man. This sounds more like the Pixar we expect, not lame sequels to lame franchises.

                                      I agree with everybody below me. Pixar is and will hopefully be the best animation studio ever!! Better than disney. I love toy story and ratatoullie.
