Voice Casts & Production Art For Future Pixar Films

It seems as though D23, the Disney exclusive convention, is giving us animation-heads tons to be talking about. First up on the list are two upcoming Pixar films, both of which sound very original and incredibly fascinating. THE GOOD DINOSAUR, from director Bob Peterson, is set on an Earth where dinosaurs never died out and now live happily with humans. The good dinosaur in question will be named Arlo and voiced by Lucas Neff. Neff will be supported by an excellent cast which includes Bill Hader, Neil Patrick Harris, and Judy Greer as his siblings and John Lithgow and Frances McDormand as his parents. Scheduled to hit theatres on 30th May 2014, Dinosaur films don’t usually pass the ‘Meh!’ barrier, with a few notable exceptions. Hopefully Pixar are going to give us something amazing.

If that premise wasn’t good enough for you, then how about the ambitious and intriguing INSIDE OUT, which explores the mind and emotions of a young girl? From UP director Pete Docter, INSIDE OUT takes place inside an 11 yearold girl just as she moves to San Francisco, with the characters being her emotions. Considering those emotions are things such as Disgust, Fear, and Sadness, this sounds as though it could be a dark and introspective look at the feelings of a child. Amy Poehler will play Joy, Lewis Black will be Anger, Mindy Kaling takes on the role of Disgust, Phyllis Smith is Sadness, and Bill Hader is cast again as Fear. INSIDE OUT is looking at a 19th June 2015 release date.

Both of these films sound amazing, especially INSIDE OUT which does what Pixar does best, and that is treat family movies with maturity and sincerity. I haven’t been impressed with a Pixar movie since UP, so I’m glad to see that some films which aren’t sequels or prequels are coming to the big screen. See below for concept art and the official synopses. THE GOOD DINOSAUR

“The Good Dinosaur” asks the generations-old question: What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? In theaters May 30, 2014, the film is a humorous and exciting original story about Arlo, a lively 70-foot-tall teenage Apatosaurus with a big heart. After a traumatic event rattles Arlo’s tranquil community, he sets out on a quest to restore peace, gaining an unlikely companion along the way—a young human boy named Spot.


From director Pete Docter (“Up,” “Monsters, Inc.”) and producer Jonas Rivera (“Up”), Disney•Pixar’s “Inside Out” takes you to a place that everyone knows, but no one has ever seen: the world inside the human mind. Riley, an 11-year-old girl who recently moved with her family to San Francisco, is not the main character but the setting for the film. Moviegoers will go inside her mind to explore how memories are formed and how a mixture of five emotions—Joy, Disgust, Anger, Fear and Sadness—defines life experiences. In theaters June 19, 2015.
