Pixar's upcoming slate is really taking shape, we have a lot of exciting projects; some sequels, some originals, some new directors. One thing we're a little short of though is titles. Up co-director Bob Peterson's directorial debut only recently got its title and some plot points, The Good Dinosaur, we know very little about films beyond that though. Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich is bring us an, untitled, film about the Mexican holiday, Día de los Muertos, first-time feature director Teddy Newton will be bringing us a film, and Andrew Stanton returns to animation with, the tentatively titled, Finding Nemo 2. Sandwiched inbetween all that though, on 19th June, 2015, is the new film from Monsters, Inc. and Up director Pete Docter, which now has a title.
The film takes place inside the human mind, the mind of a little girl actually, with the emotions being the characters. Up until now, it's gone by the not-so-catchy title of The Untitled Pixar Film That Takes You Inside The Mind, but Bleeding Cool reports that it's now called The Inside Out.
Bleeding Cool's Brendon Connelly cites a source in the know, as well as a Primissima interview with Disney's head of Italian distribution, Stefano Bethlen. Connelly does stress though that the title isn't official yet, but "it’s the one Pixar want".
Exciting stuff, for sure, as we, little by little, hear more about the adored studio's future. Now if we could only get newt back... In the meantime though, Dan Scanlon (Mater and the Ghostlight) takes over directing duties from Docter's original Monsters, Inc. for next year's prequel, Monsters University - due on 21st June, 2013 (US) and 12th July, 2013 (UK).
Monsters, Inc. 3D also hits cinemas in two weeks, on 19th December. To get you into the Monsters, Inc. mood, and the festive one for that matter, check out the above Chirtsmassy doodle by the Inside Out director (via D23).
