‘Coco’ Teaser Trailer Debuts!

2 Comments

The teaser trailer for Pixar’s upcoming film based on Día de Muertos, Coco, has debuted!

I’m really looking forward to it! The film does seem reminiscent of other animated films like The Book of Life and Kubo and the Two Strings, but it’s different enough to be its own thing. I love the animation, the characters, and just the overall feel of the movie! Even the dog with the weird tongue is endearing, lol!

Coco hits theaters on November 22, 2017. Are you looking forward to it?

Pixar’s latest film is one that I honestly wasn’t dying to happen! I mean, I wasn’t against a Finding Nemo sequel, but I wouldn’t have been disappointed if we never got a sequel either! So like a true animation fan, I went to see Finding Dory with an open mind. What did I think of it? Well, read on to find out!

‘Cars 3’ Teaser Trailer Debuts!

12 Comments

The first teaser trailer for Pixar’s upcoming Cars 3 has debuted:

What can I say except…Wow?! Everyone’s talking about how dark and gritty Pixar is getting with this franchise. I mean, seeing an injured near-retirement Lightning McQueen try to get back in the race does sound interesting! The film is set to be released in June 2017, so I wonder when a voice cast will be announced?

What did you think of the teaser? Are you excited for the film?

Pixar Swaps ‘Toy Story 4’ and ‘The Incredibles 2’ Release Dates!

Well, this news will either make you happy or sad depending on how you feel about either film, but Pixar has announced that they’re swapping the release dates of Toy Story 4 and The Incredibles 2. The Incredibles 2 is now set to be released to theaters on June 15, 2018 and Toy Story 4 on June 21, 2019.

So if you’re a fan of The Incredibles, you’re getting the sequel earlier. If you were waiting for the Toy Story sequel, you gotta wait one more year. I’m neutral about both films, so this news doesn’t really affect me.

What do you all think of this swap?
