    First Poster & Clip Arrive For Latest Pixar Short 'La Luna'

    We're be decidedly un-enamored of Pixar's recent approach to their features: this year's "Cars 2" looks, if anything, worse than its predecessor, and being jammed between last year's "Toy Story 3" and 2013's "Monsters University," the studio, one of the true bastions of creativity in the industry, seems to be heading towards the sequel-happy approach of every other big company, with next year's "Brave" being the only confirmed original project on their slate (although we've got no doubt that there are plenty of other films in the works), and big name directors like Andrew Stanton and Brad Bird being wooed away to the live-action world for fil...

    Soundtrack Includes Weezer, Robbie Williams & Brad PaisleyOK, so we know that Disney makes literally billions and billions of dollars a year off merchandise for the original "Cars," so the sequel was something of a no-brainer for them, but do they really need to sell it this hard?

    Pixar Head John Lasseter Confirms That The Studio Killed 'Newt' Because Of Similarities To 'Rio'

    Regardless of how "Cars 2" turns out, Pixar still has the most consistent track record of any studio today. Not only do their films routinely rake in billions of dollars around the world, but they're 11 films in with nary a dud in the bunch. The studio has come close to creative disaster a few times, perhaps most notably with "Toy Story 2" being completely retooled with less than a year to go before its release. The result? One of the best sequels ever made and one that stands up to the classic original. (Jessie's "When She Loved Me" montage makes us tear up just thinking about it.) In fact, the closest thing you can find to a failure for the...

    Kelly Macdonald Replaces Reese Witherspoon As Lead Of Pixar's 'Brave,' First Concept Art Revealed

    Craig Ferguson, Robbie Coltrane Also In Voice CastConsidering the run the studio have been on recently ("Ratatouille," "Wall-E" and "Up" all in quick succession), it's a little sad that we're facing such a gap of original material from Pixar -- "Toy Story 3" came last year, and, much worse, "Cars 2" this year. But we're now heading toward the light at the end of the tunnel: 2012 will see "Brave," formerly known as "The Bear & The Bow," and shows the company once more moving into new territory -- with its first fairy tale, and its first female lead (the delay in the arrival of the latter being something that they've faced criticism for recentl...

    Pixar Plans 'Toy Story' Short In Front Of 'The Muppets' & Direct-To-DVD 'Cars' Spinoff 'Planes'

    Diluting the brand much? One of the great things about Pixar when they first came onto the animation scene is that they abandoned the very practices that watered down the once mighty Disney. Story came before merchandising, and more importantly, the up-and-coming studio didn't diminish their quality features by churning out sub-standard straight-to-video features. Until now. With Pixar now firmly under the Disney umbrella, the merchandising machine is going into overdrive and with good reason. "Cars" alone brings in literally billions a year thanks to branding; last year, combined with box office and merchandising "Toy Story 3" brought in $10...
