The latest issue of Time Magazine has a detailed list of what we can expect from Pixar in the next couple of years or so. Their new film Ratatouille opens on June 29th. Here is what they are cooking up:
WALL*E, to be released June 27, 2008. The year is 2700. WALL• E, a robot, spends every day doing what he was made for. But soon, he will discover what he was meant for. The film is described by Pixar's Andrew Stanton as, "R2-D2 meets City Lights."
Up, to be released June 12th, 2009. Pete Docter and Bob Peterson are making this "coming-of-old-age story" about a seventy something guy who lives in a house that "looks like your grandparents' house smelled." He befriends a clueless young Wilderness Ranger and gets into lots of altercations. Pixar states, "Our hero travels the globe, fights beasts and villains and eats dinner at 3:30 in the afternoon."
Toy Story 3, to be released sometime in 2010. Lee Unkrich stated, "We got an idea we thought would be really. We're just starting to write the story. I wake up every morning hoping for a eureka moment." He and the Brain Trust have already had one inspiration: they've asked Randy Newman to write the score.
