Tweet of the Day, We’re Not The Only Ones Wondering About The Cars Universe edition.

Pixar’s people have their own, highly macabre, theories as well.

The possibly-hopeful-maybe Cars 3 Trailer.

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I would not be heartbroken to hear that all the people responsible for Pixar’s past rough patch had been unceremoniously fired from their jobs and were now in Japan doing knockoff animation.  Not least because of the historical irony involved. But this? This does not look half-bad.

I would not object to Cars 3 not sucking.  Neither would my kids, obviously.

The ‘Coco’ trailer. (Disney/Pixar)

Looks like Coco’s going to be Day of the Dead-style urban fantasy with a metric butt-ton of Spanish-style guitar playing, which means that I’m probably going to be buying the soundtrack during the second half of the movie. I am an absolute sucker for good acoustic guitar playing. And, oh yeah: Pixar movies, too.

The Cars 3 Trailer. I’m sorry, but I have to say it…

…I’ve got a bad feeling about this.

This may be going somewhere… dark.

Netflix would like to let you now that BOOM, BABY, they got first crack at Disney and Marvel now.

Here we go:

From September onwards, Netflix will become the exclusive U.S. pay TV home of the latest films from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s head of content, wrote on their company blog.

…Dannnnnnng. I mean, you can get a bunch of the old stuff from most of those shops at any given time; but exclusive first-look?  That’s pretty neat-o, if you have Netflix. Which I do.

‘Inside Out’ Trailer.

Anybody but Pixar, I’d raise an eyebrow.

 

And Pixar doesn’t quite bat 1.000 these days, at that.  Still… not safe to bet that they can’t pull it off.

Your absolutely horrid thought of the day: Adolf Hitler exists in the Cars universe.

No, really.

That’d make one hell of a reverse Downfall parody video, though. Up until the moment that the maker of it was sued into oblivion.

PS: By the way, The Pixar Theory is endlessly fascinating.

Annnnd Pixar’s “Brave” trailer.

This one may be more iffy: as my wife has noted, Pixar’s female characters are… not often all that distinguishable (her gold standard for a good female animated character is Disney’s Mulan*), and this may be conventional tween angst-fodder.

On the other hand, Pixar.

Moe Lane

*I’d back her up on this: Mulan would not be the only Disney princess who I’d allow to join my adventuring party, but she would be the only one that I’d let stand watch or take point right away.

The Trailer for Up.

Meh.

This looks likes it’s just going to be yet another freaking spectacular Pixar film.

Showoffs.

Moe Lane

PS: Oh, look: it has a zeppelin.

Animated “John Carter of Mars” movie scheduled for 2012.

You probably already knew about it.  Thanks to skipping around Ain’t It Cool News, now I do to.  The movie is going to be directed by Andrew Stanton – click on the name to see why the animation fanboy behind you is cooing, or just contemplate the mystical and wondrous Power Word: “Pixar” – but apparently it’s not going to be animated:

Discussing the move from fully 3-D animated movies to live-action, Stanton added: “I think that’s the only way. I mean, there are so many creatures and characters that half of it’s going to be CG whether you want it to be [or not], just to realise some of these images that are in the book. But it will feel real. The whole thing will feel very, very believable.” (more…)
