Pete Docter's Next Pixar Movie Will Take Place In...

Nordling here.

Earlier this year at the D23 Expo, Pixar revealed some of the movies they have coming in the next few years, and one of the ideas was very intriguing - a film set inside the human mind.  And that's all we got.  No idea of the plot, or characters (if any), just that it would be Pete Docter's directorial follow-up to UP and that it was coming sometime in the future, probably 2014.  It sounded like a film that Pixar had never done before, but they're always breaking new ground with their films, so that's no surprise.

Well, John Lasseter recently told Charlie Rose a little more about the film, and the premise sounds unique, to say the least.  Docter's new film would indeed take place inside the mind - of a little girl, according to Lasseter.  He stated, "It is about her emotions as characters, and that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen."

Very curious to say the least.  Is the girl a young child or a teenager?  What would her emotions look like?  I doubt Pixar would go the cliché route of rainbows and unicorns.  It's also nice to see another film that won't be for the boys.  Will the story be able to sustain a feature-length film?  Knowing these guys, I'd say that's a yes.  It's good to see that Pixar is still pushing those limits, and I can't wait to see what they have cooked up.

Nordling, out.

    It is true their two most recent films were sequels in TOY STORY 3 and CARS 2, but one of those was excellent. Their next movie BRAVE looks fantastic. The 3 films before that were UP, WALL-E, and RATATOUILLE, and while WALL-E was about a cute robot I don't think you can call making kids films about a rat that wants to be a chef or an elderly man who flies his house to South America rather than be put in a home as playing any sort of fomula.

    Not a ripoff or anything, but it did immediately make me think of Inception and The Cell. Of course, a film taking place inside of "headspace" if you will, that is a setting that could be used more than a few times and done in very different styles and genre with different themes running through it.

    Okay, first of all...

    by Jon Forbing

    ... could everyone stop making the "Herman's Head" connection as if they're the first? There's been like fifteen now. We got it. Secondly, yeah, there's been a few things that have done this idea, but I would say there's still a lot of new ground to break with it. "Psychonauts" was great, but it didn't do all that well commercially so many people never played it. "Herman's Head" was actually a really cool idea for its time, but that didn't change the fact that it was just another BS three-camera sitcom. I think if anyone can make something out of this, it's Pixar.

    The premise doesn't necessarily sound *that* original, but come on, we still know barely anything about it. But I like the idea. And Pixar usually sticks the landing when it comes to ambitious kids' movies, in my opinion. Let's just hope it's a little more Finding Nemo and a little less Osmosis Jones.

    does this mean we'll finally get a realistic child performance from PIXAR?

    by soma_with_the_paintbox

    Most of the adult characters/mature animals/whatever in pixar films are fully realized, well-crafted characters but most of the kids/immature characters have been interchangeable, adorable-on-steroids little fuckers with grating, marble-mouthed voices straight out of Central Casting. Maybe it's their Disney overlords, maybe it's a hurdle intrinsic to animation, maybe they've always known who butters their bread and what they like, but c'mon. I'm not saying you need The Fall or Ponette-esque themes to extract realistic performances from children, but they could try a little harder. Yi Yi, The Tree of Life, even WTWTA (yes, the kid was a brat, but realistically so) featured unaffected child performances. The kids in Pixar films are myopically context-specific in the same way that the kids from, say, Hook are: inane skater brats. Pixar manages to pull this off without much topicality at all, which is impressive in a bad way. I want to see a "timeless" child performance in a Pixar film. Some Pixar films do feel timeless, but paradoxically not because of anything that hinges upon a child's performance or the character he or she is playing.

    by SebastianHaff

    I get it! You've seen Herman's Head and this sounds remotely familiar! Do we need every other post being another know-it-all making sure we know there's a movie called Herman's Head that has a similar premise? Fuck, this is like saying because American Tail was about rodents that Ratatouille was a total rip-off, unoriginal, and not worth making. This could still (and probably will) present the idea in a way we've never seen before. <br><p> As for this nonsense about Pixar selling out because their last two films were sequels and they've got a prequel on the way, have you ever heard of this thing called making money? Without Cars 2 and Monsters University, the Pixar boys aren't guaranteed to have the kind of leverage they do now to make fucking weird movies like WALL-E and Up. They're almost operating similar to Del Toro with the whole 'one for me, one for them' philosophy to their films. That's not selling out, that's being smart.

    I never saw either of the Cars films nor Toy Story 3, but the sheer vitriolic frustration on these threads is always baffling. Yes, those films are obviously more "plebian" than the rest of their output. That is ovbious even from the trailer. They don't try to hide it. They put the same care and craft into those films. The goals just aren't as lofty, the themes not so abstract. Again, they dont try to hide that its also A MASSIVE CASH GRAB. Still head and shoulders above dreck like Alvin and the Chipmunks or Gnomeo and Juliet. So whence the frustration? as in, LOL Y U SO MAD THO?

    by ChaunceyGardiner

    The door corridor chase sequence is one of the best chases in film history. I remember the first few times I saw that, and I just had to shake my head in wonder. That one scene suddenly opens up that entire world into a believeable universe. It again proves that despite the beauty of Pixar's rendering, it is the writing that distinguishes its best pictures. And its animators are talented enough to rise to the challange. An Idea Factory if there ever was one.

    hermans head was a tv show, just so ya know. and the reason peeps are getting perturbed about it is lasseter was quoted as saying: "It is about her emotions as characters, and that is ---unlike anything you’ve ever seen---." well, no---thats the exact setup for the tv show hermans head. emotions and thoughts as literal characters. so it ---isn't--- unlike anything we;ve ever seen. im not saying its gonna' suck because of that--not hatin' on the project itself (mostly cause it still in development). i'm hatin' on the claim of an idea as being completely original...when the exact description you give is the tagline for a tv show. the saying goes, "don't piss on my head and call it rain".

    And, Soma, I encourage you to grab a look at "Toy Story 3."

    by ChaunceyGardiner

    I worked in a school system for several years now and have watched the trilogy through a good handful of times. Every time I rewatch "Toy Story" now it seems a revelation, a look into a world where nothing like it had ever been seen before (sort of maybe like those early summers of "Jaws" and "Star Wars"). And, accordingly, it feels like such a classic. The story, the characters, their adventure, the central theme about the value of friendship, they all ring true, new and wonderful. It is a picture that captures my attention and imagination every time I see it. "Toy Story 2," on the otherhand, has never been that type of picture for me. I like Woody's story - but by separating him from the group I feel that it loses the wonderful dynamic of community that buoys up the original story. It is merely an enjoyable sequel. A good placeholder. And then we arrive at "Toy Story 3." And wow. I actually didn't see it in theatres because of my fear. I couldn't really imagine a final film that did justice to the original and yet brought us to a place in which we were comfortable leaving the

    Like Nothing We've Ever Seen

    by JonQuixote

    I hope it looks like nothing we've ever seen. If it's highly-detailed, brightly-colored backgrounds, with huge-eyed plastic-looking cartoon characters... well, you can still probably count me in. But I won't be thrilled about it. PIXAR is becoming a victim of their own brand. I mean, I'd still rather stare at a John Lasseter bowel-movement floating in the bowl for 90 minutes than most other animated movies from other studios, but PIXAR has been feeling less and less fresh, y'know. I cringed when the beautiful trailer for BRAVE had its Rennaissance-painting quality broken up by a character that looked like she could have been in UP. Or WALL-E. Or TOY STORY. Or... They need to start expanding their visual artistry beyond "This character's hair has 1,000,000 distinct strands, as opposed to 500,000" technological advances. Because their stories aren't feeling as fresh as they used to, and even their great concepts often wind up regressing to kid-friendly hijinx by the 3rd act.

    "Toy Story 3" - continued.

    by ChaunceyGardiner

    And then we arrive at "Toy Story 3." And wow. I actually didn't see it in theatres because of my fear. I couldn't really imagine a final film that did justice to the original and yet brought us to a place in which we were comfortable leaving the characters. The emotional investment that the audience had involved with the series needed to be addressed. And it just wasn't something I could see happening. Even if Michael Ardnt was writing it. WARNING! WARNING! The Following Paragraph Explains and Expounds Upon My Appreciation of "Little Miss Sunshine." Trolls are the recommended reading audience. YOU HAVE BEEN FOREWARNED! Every time I rewatch "Little Miss Sunshine" my esteem of it grows. The journey of its characters is a very real odyssey and I feel that its Screwball ending is entirely justified. The theft of Grandpa's body, if you truly consider the implications of that bizarre and desperate act, cements it as the great piece of writing that I feel it is. So stressed is their illusion of a society that has seemingly disregarded them and their hopes and dreams that they react in a truly deranged, if insanely logical, fashion. Its characters have arrived at a place where their valuation of one another supercedes their considerations of the opinions of others. A rather beautiful roadtrip comedy about "Fear and Loathing in the Middle Class." THE END. and the rest follows. The brilliant thing about Ardnt's story for "Toy Story 3" is its balancing of orginality and respect for the accomplishments of the original picture and its characters. That it takes the conventions of a genre picture (the Prison Movie) in order to breathe life into whatever predicaments and challenges the Toy Family might face allows a creative framework in which the characters can be expanded. And what we get is a tremendous statement about the value of togetherness. That all battles can be faced by a people if they are faced together, as a whole. And into that pwerful story is thrown some of the best characters of in the series: Beatty's Lots-O and Keaton's (brilliant, absolutely brilliant) Ken. The gambling hall scene in the vending machine had me sold. It is an expansion of the toys' world of the safety of a child's room and that child's seemingly endless embrace, and into the outer world where dark things might be harboured - mirroring the sadness of Sid's childhood in the first film. Awesome. It truly has a depth that "Toy Story 2" could only counter with the excitement of its brightly coloured world. "Toy Story 3" has a real sense of loss and danger to it. And yet it feels true to the love espoused in Buzz and Woody's first adventure together. I feel it is one of Pixar's best achievements and a true example of their dedication to the power of telling a good story.

    Thank you for the concern CountryBoy.

    by ChaunceyGardiner

    Personally, my fantasy version of the last twenty minutes would have been closer in reality to the scene in "The Big Lebowski" where the Dude's roach blows back into his lap as he drives and he attempts extinguishment by pouring his bottle of Kahlua onto his (unwashed) shorts. Which then results in the funniest car accident ever. That is, next to Walter's incompetent crouch-drop-and-roll out of the El Dorado, Uzi in tow, which then shoots out the tires, which then sends the car into a telephone pole. In actuality, it was more like a scene out of Sarah Polley's "Away From Her." Except starring a 30-something who suddenly forgets how to competently use a computer. (They teach in "Human Development" classes how increasing age is truly a give-and-take situation. They could not be more right.)

    Such as Ms. Miller. A disillusioned prostitute stuporous on opium while Warren Beatty bleeds to death in a snowdrift while the church burns and everybody is doing everything but what is important. Yes. But a male version. And not high. Or particularly jaded. Oh, and not a prostitute. And not blonde. Or beautifully endowed with long lustrous eyelashes. And not the star of many great films from the 70s. But amnesic? Quite possibly. Especially after the big fuzz of the day leaves me in a deep dusky evening faded state. (Actually had a moment today at work where I couldn't close a series of cabinet drawers without others opening and dispelling their contents which was so seemingly dictated by cosmically brilliant comic timing that, if it had of been captured on camera, I would be hailed as a genious. Nine decades ago. Yes.) Or as CreepyThinMan says, "FACT!"

    Walt Disney's wartime short "REASON AND EMOTION" took us into the mind of a young woman as she grappled with wartime 40's life. I bet you dollars for doughnuts that's what's inspired this new film, just as "SUSIE THE LITTLE BLUE COUPE" inspired CARS. And there's also the old Cranium Command attraction at EPCOT, same thing (journeying inside the mind). I bet you REASON AND EMOTION is on YouTube. It's also on the Disney on the Front Lines DVD set.

    Toy Story is similar to -- Velveteen Rabbit, Old Bear and friends, Raggedy Ann & Andy, Corduroy, Winnie the Pooh, The Mouse And His Child, Babes in Toyland, The Indian In The Cupboard, Pinocchio etc. (toys that come to life) Monsters Inc. -- Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, Little Monsters (M Inc. is also a little like the Little Nemo stories). Cars -- MGM Tex Avery toon "One Cab's Family," and "Little Johnny Jet" Ratatouille -- add one part Ralph S. Mouse, and a dash of The Elves and the Shoemaker. Also, Rizzo the Rat is the chef, with help from his rat friends, at Pete's Luncheonette in "Muppets Take Manhattan" Finding Nemo -- typical animal journeying home, or animal separated from family story. Talking fish stories are typical in folklore. And the more recent "Pierrot Le Poisson Clown" WALL·E -- Most people said Short Circuit, but I'll go slightly obscure for ya: "For a Breath I Tarry' by the great fantasy author Roger Zelazny. Also, the humans in the story remind me of Mojo from X-Men, and the Mad Magazine short bit called "Blobs" (though that was probably homage). Up -- Above then Beyond. Also, search Seattle Times + Edith Macefield. Any number of stories involving balloons tied to something or a person to be swept away, Dug the Dog, and his single-minded fixations, is a rip-off of the talking dog from Dexter's Laboratory.

    Herman's Head sucked. Flying Blind, now THERE was a show.

    And to whoever said all Pixar child characters are sweetness and light from stock casting...um, how about Sid in the original TOY STORY? Or Sid's sister, for that matter?

    What character will be in charge of self mutilation and cutting?

    by FluffyUnbound

    If there's no character named CutCut or something, this will totally not be realistic. CutCut should run around saying shit like OH NO WE DON'T HAVE A BOYFRIEND SOMEBODY GET CONTROL OF OUR HAND AND MAKE A LONG CUT ON OUR ARM. Shit like that.

    how about this from 1974?

    "The Magical Mystery Trip Through Little Red's Head" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOv-iBrWhXQ http://satambrainfood.com/timerspecials.html which "shrinks young siblings Carol and Larry in order to take them on a journey into their big sister's head. While the first special taught us about the importance of general health, our trip into Red's head aims to educate us about the mind and all it entails: Feelings, emotions, senses, etc. While we're busy learning, Little Red gets caught up in a modern-day (by 1970s standards, at least) twist of the classic children's story that bears her name. You know, the one with the wolf. Along the way we're treated to the same entertaining song and dance quotient as we got on our first magical trip -- trippy animation sequences and all -- as well as plenty of wacky friends, old and new. I won't spoil the ending for you, but if you already know how "Little Red Riding Hood" ends, just imagine that with more karate. "

    jesus i hate you people so much

    wah wah wah, pixar sucks now cause they made one bad movie. Oh really? Cause I'm pretty sure they're the only major studio that's been consistently putting out nothing but B+ material or better for the past 15 years. Wah wah we're sick of sequels. Really? Cause in the past ten years Pixar has put out 9, count 'em, NINE films, and only the last two of those were sequels, and one of those sequels is probably in the top 3 Pixar films. And the rest were based on original ideas, not adaptations. They've given us Finding Nemo, Ratatouille, WALL*E, Up, Monsters, Inc, all the highest quality animation at the time of their release, all still beautiful pictures...honestly what are you all bitching about? You know next to nothing about this film that's two and a half years away from being released, outside of a couple throwaway loglines. You have absolutely no idea what the aesthetic will be. It's Pixar, and it sounds interesting. End of story. Shut. The. Fuck. Up.

    tb4000, yes we are and proud of it.

    by Grammaton Cleric Binks

    We remember movies before CGI. We remember real actors. We remember classics. We remember when people had an attention span before they were Bayified. Having said that, I watched Herman's Head once or twice, and that was it because the show sucked.

    Pixar doesn't make bad films

    by SifoDyasJr

    They've made a couple of 'not as good as their other films' films, but even those are better than most of what Dreamworks has put out. 50 years from now, your grandkids will be watching Pixar films on their holocubes and they won't have a clue as to what the hell a Shreck is.
