Because teenagerdom is a mess, but some people handle it better than others.

It’s not often triplets find a suitable family costume so when one mom saw Pixar’s Brave featured three brothers, she knew it was only a matter of time before she’d dress her boys up. On her blog Three at Once she says she spent a month making their costumes for a Halloween trip to Disneyland. “The whole night the boys loved the attention they were getting for their costumes and it was nice to have them dressed as Disney characters,” she says. “All night they insisted on saying hi to all of the little girls dressed as Merida saying ‘it’s our sister.’”

We previously saw a small sampling of this project – a live-action version of Disney’s original Toy Story. Now, after two years, it’s complete and all we can do it be impressed by 21-year-old Jesse Perrotta and 19-year-old Jonason Pauley’s hard work. The official Facebook page for the project features link to a few foreign language dubs and you can even watch outtakes here. “I wasn’t positive we were actually really going to do the whole thing,” Perrotta told ABC. “I was worried about the scenes at the end. We had to train the dog, get a moving truck, film a chase scene with toys – but we just stayed positive and took it one day at a time.”

Look, I was expecting to be reeling from a hurricane this morning. I wasn’t expecting to hit the end of my work day with the news that Disney now controls all of its own properties, those of Marvel comics, and those of Lucasfilm. But it’s true. As confirmed by Reuters and several legitimate business sources, Disney has acquired Lucasfilm, and with Lucasfilm the Star Wars franchise. They’re also promising Star Wars Episode 7 by 2015, the same year as The Avengers 2 and Warner Bros. putative Justice League.READ MORE

We’ve see a lot of fantastic clips, featurettes, and trailers from the upcoming Pixar movie Brave, but I think I can go on record officially saying this takes the cake. Read on to watch a brand-new spot from the creators of the film, wishing mom’s everywhere a Happy Mother’s Day with something we’ve not yet seen – a baby version of Merida. Brace yourself.READ MORE

Okay, so, it’s baseball season for the next 17 months or so. But fortunately, those of us who are football fans can still get little bits and pieces of our game in the off-season, like when Eli Manning hosts Saturday Night Live on May 5, and the NFL draft! And it’s the latter that has provided the ad wizards in charge of promoting Pixar‘s Brave with material for a genius spot. Genius. Seriously, this football/Pixar fan is so happy right now. Good morning, indeed.

In one of the biggest cases of “pick your battles,” the owners of the Atlanta Braves baseball team are reportedly “in negotiations” with Disney Pixar over the title of their next big release, Brave. Because it’s called “Brave,” and that is also the singular version of “Braves,” and now there is a trademark battle that the Atlanta Braves have chosen to pursue. Because apparently, after experiencing one of the worst collapses in baseball history, the Braves need a victory, so they’re going after Disney …? Yeah, guys. This is a great plan.READ MORE

Above is a preview scene of the independent efforts of one filmmaker to do a “shot for shot” remake of Toy Story. I put “shot for shot” in quotes only because the original film is computer animated and the remake is a live-action version using the actual toys. We have no idea what Disney Pixar can do about this, but we hope they can just sit back and appreciate it — because it’s pretty cool-looking so far! You can watch the progress on the project’s Facebook page, run by the filmmaker, a lad named Jonason.

Tons of news is coming out of D23, the fan event for the most extreme Disney fans that is taking place in Anaheim this weekend, and it included new footage from Brave, Wreck-It Ralph, and news of two new Pixar movies. While no titles have been announced, estimated release dates have: November 27, 2013 and May 30, 2014. One will be about the human brain and the other will be about — wait for it — dinosaurs. All this, plus a definitive Pixar lineup for the next three years after the jump!READ MORE

Kees Van Dijkhuisen, who has done montages for MIchel Gondry, Baz Luhrmann, and Wes Anderson, just to name a few, has done another tribute to the films of Pixar that is just as wonderful and weep-inducing as the movies are. Why do we do this to ourselves, voluntarily going on an emotional roller coaster of fun, grief, angst, and love? Because it’s Pixar, and it is just able to possess us completely.
