And speaking of Pixar, the film previously known as Untitled Disney-Pixar Inside the Mind Film now has an actual title: Inside Out. It’s “told from the perspective of the emotions inside the mind of a little girl“ and is directed by Pete Docter, who also directed Monsters, Inc. and Up (via The Daily Blam, /Film)

Disney Reveals Its 2013 Holiday Movie, Frozen (Which Is Not About Dinosaurs)

There was a small bit of confusion when Disney said it would be making an announcement about its new feature set for November 2013. During the D23 Expo, we learned about two new Pixar movies, one of which would be about dinosaurs. The other was said to be about going inside the human mind. Well, this movie is neither of those, nor is it PIxar — it’s called Frozen, and is based on the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale, The Snow Queen. And we already have a picture — of the villain, at least. Because here’s what we can start getting psyched about: a new Disney heroine.

Disney Pixar Announces Two New Animated Features at D23 Expo

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!

Prequel to Monsters Inc. Confirmed

Disney Pixar has confirmed a prequel to Monsters Inc., in which its star monsters, Sully and Mike will meet and become friends. Because according to the press release, that is not how their relationship began:

Everybody knows at this point Mike and Sulley are amazing friends, the best of friends, but as it turns out in this story, that wasn’t always the case. From the moment they met at university, they couldn’t stand each other.

This story takes you through the ups and downs, and how they overcame their own differences.

So, it’s kind of in between Aaahh!!! Real Monsters and the first movie. But it’s definitely an about-face from the scrapped sequel, which was supposed to be about Boo growing up and the monsters searching for her. My guess is that much like Toy Story 3, there would have been much crying involved.

Monsters University is expected to be released on November 2, 2012 and does not have a director attached. (The original director, Pete Docter, is working on his own “top secret project” slated for 2013 or 2014.) It is also worth mentioning that there is a Dreamworks project called Boo U, about ghosts going to “scare school.” One for ghost people, one for monster people. I guess that’s why they keep doing that?
