Last November, during the rise of the #MeToo movement, The Hollywood Reporter alleged that Rashida Jones, and her writing partner Will McCormack, had left “Toy Story 4” because she had experienced unwanted advances by John Lasseter. Jones a…

Believe it or not, we are approaching the end of John Lasseter’s six-month leave of absence from Disney. Following allegations of inappropriate behavior, described as “missteps” by Lasseter, the creative mind behind Pixar stepped down for an extended p…

“So things haven’t spiraled out of control the moment I left?” Disney has debuted another new 60-second “sneak peek” TV trailer for Pixar’s Incredibles 2, and it contains a few more scenes of unseen footage. We keep seeing more and more in extra trailers, and the more footage we see, the more excited I get. I have a good feeling this might just be amazing, and we barely have any real sense of the plot because Pixar usually likes to keep it all a big secret (especially whatever happens in the second half). Craig T. Nelson is back to voice Bob, with Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, and Sarah Vowell. At this point, I’m ready to just watch this movie and find out what is going on here before any more of it is revealed in more TV spots and trailers. This new footage is also an announcement that tickets are on sale now for the June opening. Enjoy. Here’s the …

EMERYVILLE, CA – One aspect of CG animation that never truly gets the praise it deserves is the incredibly detailed production design that often goes into each film.  It’s mostly because of a perception that because animated films are digit…

EMERYVILLE, CA – “Incredibles 2” director and screenwriter Brad Bird has just sat down in a conference room at Pixar’s headquarters alongside the film’s producers Nicole Grindle and John Walker.  They’ve all just fin…

“Suit up, it might get weird.” Disney-Pixar have debuted the full theatrical trailer for Brad Bird’s superhero sequel The Incredibles 2, which we’ve been waiting a long time to finally see. And boy does it look like it will be worth the wait. Bird directs once again, and the synopsis only states that it’s about Bob navigating “the day-to-day heroics of ‘normal’ life”, allowing him time to bond with Jack-Jack, “whose superpowers are emerging—much to Dad’s surprise.” Craig T. Nelson is back to voice Bob, with Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, and Sarah Vowell. Most of the story is still a surprise – though this trailer gives us a better look at where the story is going with a new villain revealed at the end. This looks like SO much fun, I really can’t wait, I’m glad they’re bringing it back with Brad Bird. I’ve got very high hopes for this, even more now. Here’s the full theatrical trailer (+ new …

“Help me bring Supers back into the sunlight!” Disney-Pixar have released another teaser trailer for Brad Bird’s superhero sequel The Incredibles 2, which we’ve been waiting a long time to see. This teaser was debuted during the Olympics, along with a promo clip that integrated a few Olympics sports. The first teaser didn’t show much but this one actually has footage and gives us a nice introduction to the story. Brad Bird directs once again, and the plot synopsis only states that it’s about Bob navigating “the day-to-day heroics of ‘normal’ life”, allowing him time to bond with Jack-Jack, “whose superpowers are emerging—much to Dad’s surprise.” Craig T. Nelson is back to voice Bob, with Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, and Sarah Vowell. There isn’t a lot here, but honestly I’m loving what we do get, feels like an authentic continuation. Here’s the second teaser trailer (+ posters) for Brad Bird’s Incredibles 2, direct from Disney’s YouTube: You can watch the first …
