Comedian Paul Savage has hit on something brilliant—giving the vehicles from Mad Max: Fury Road eyes from Pixar’s Cars. [click to continue…]

Fan theories have been thrown around for ages about how all of the Disney Pixar movies are connected. Now Disney/Pixar has chimed in with a video that essentially confirms that there is some truth behind the theories. Watch it below. [click to continue…]


Over a five year period, Andrew Coats and Lou Hamou-Lhadj of Pixar created a 7-minute animated short entitled Borrowed Time which tells an adult tale of regret, perseverance and forgiveness with the studio’s typical blend of incredible animation and immersive storytelling.

A weathered Sheriff returns to the remains of an accident he has spent a lifetime trying to forget. With each step forward, the memories come flooding back. Faced with his mistake once again, he must find the strength to carry on.

Check out the video below, and prepare to have your heartstrings tugged. [click to continue…]


Sometimes you see a toy and you think, “Huh. I’m not sure that needs to exist.” This is not one of those toys.

Call it Voltron, call it a Megazord, call it whatever you like – this Toy Story “Chogokin combiner” from Tamashii Nations takes several of the classic toys from Andy’s toy chest and turns them into robots which combine to form one 9″-tall mega-awesome cowboy-themed robot-y thing. What do the individual toys turn into? I’m very glad you asked – nothing. But their combined form looks incredibly cool.

The set drops in Japan this November, priced at $169.99. The set will eventually make its way to the US, though that’ll likely come with a higher price tag. Tamashii Nations have also hinted at a second model based on Buzz Lightyear possibly coming at some point in the future.

peek a boo robot

Alonso Martinez, a technical director with Pixar, developed what might be one of the cutest robots in existence. Her name is Mira, and she’s designed to be a sort of “desk companion.” She uses a facial tracking system to interact with users, and she thoroughly enjoys playing “peek-a-boo”.

Unfortunately, while Mira is pretty flippin’ cute, there isn’t any word just yet concerning if and when the robot might be made available to the public. The good news is that development is ongoing, so there’s hope.

inside out

Spoiler alert–Inside Out is a good movie:

inside out rotten tomatoes

It’s more of what the world at large has come to expect from Pixar: Animated movies that are fun, smart, and moving enough to be enjoyed by children and adults (with gorgeous visuals besides). In recent years, other studios–Walt Disney with Wreck-It Ralph, DreamWorks Animation with How to Train Your Dragon, Warner Bros. with The Lego Movie–may have edged in on Pixar’s one-time reputation as the only (non-indie) company delivering animated movies at the highest level of quality, and I say the more the merrier, but damn does this movie illustrate exactly what makes Pixar… well, Pixar.

Spoilers follow…

Last year Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that Pixar was set to begin work on The Incredibles 2. ‘Bout freaking time right? Unfortunately, it seems that the project isn’t as far along as we hoped.

According to a recent interview with NPR about the sequel, Brad Bird said it was “percolating”. He notes:

“I’m just staring to write it, so we’ll see what happens.”

So does this mean that work has literally just begun? We doubt it. Odds are a story has been in place since the announcement and Bird, now free of commitments, has begun hammering down the script. This scenario seems more likely given Bird’s comments at a 2007 Wondercon panel:

“But I think at Pixar, the bottom line is the story that you’re telling. And Pixar does not look at sequels as a financial plan. We feel we have a relationship with the audience and that they believe in each movie we put out. We believe completely in every movie we put out. If I can come up with a story that is as good or better than that first film, then I’d love to return to that world, but it would have to be story first.”

Either way, one thing is for sure—we’re going to have to be patient and wait a few more years before The Incredibles 2 becomes a reality.

scully and mulder

At New York Toy Fair 2015, which kicked off on Saturday and is running through Tuesday, there is A) a lot of Frozen, B) A LOT OF FROZEN, C) a Tribble coin purse from The Coop (bless), and D) all the Funko you can shake an adorable plastic figurine at. If you weren’t there either because you weren’t in New York or you were in New York but made the completely reasonable decision to stay indoors where it wasn’t frakking freezing, you can live the experience vicariously through me. There’s no visual aid for my reaction to the upcoming X-Files figures, above, but it was something like this. Behind the cut: Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jaws, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Arrow, Firefly, The Fifth Element, Star Trek, and more!

Pixar’s newest movie Inside Out already looks like will have that mix of adorable, comedic, and serious that we’ve come to appreciate from Pixar.

It’s the adorable that really comes into play with these new Funko POP!s of Riley’s inner feelings; Anger, Joy, Despair, Sadness, and Fear.

I want all of them.

You can get a better look at them along with the trailer for the movie after the break.

toy story 3 art

Pixar movies might seem magical, but like most stories, they go through several rounds of revisions and edits. Sometimes the original plots are nothing like the finished project, and that seems to be the case for Toy Story 3. The film was released in 2010, but Disney (who was feuding with Pixar and owned the rights to their characters at the time) used a newly created company called Circle 7 to start developing the story back in 2004. Fortunately, Disney purchased Pixar outright and Circle 7 was dissolved along with the original ideas for the film.

Artist Jim Martin posted a batch of concept art based on that initial plot, and it shows a very different movie that lacks the warm and fuzzy aspects of the final product.

It looks like the movie focuses on Buzz Lightyear and takes place in Taiwan. From Imgur:

“The other toys become concerned when Buzz Lightyear starts to malfunction and decide to ship him to the Taiwanese that originally built him.”

Woody and the gang then have to go Taiwan to bring Buzz home.

Huh. I’m feeling pretty good about the version of Toy Story 3 we saw, and I’m looking forward to catching Toy Story 4 in a few years.

See a gallery of the concept art after the break.
