It’s not as simple as just playing sad music over sad scenes. No, Pixar plays with our emotions through music, sending out contrasting messages through what we see and what we hear to tear at our feelings even more. Which means, mixing happy music over sad scenes is how Pixar really gets us.
It’s almost always happily ever after. Pixar movies end with every one cheery, problems solved, relationships mended, fish found, and smiles animated. That is, they all end so damn nicely that they’re all utterly forgettable. I love most of these movies and can recall classic scenes in my head, and yet I don’t…
With a film like Finding Dory in theaters, it’s hard to argue against Pixar and their sequels. The movie is a delight and it’s doing gangbusters. Several more sequels are coming in the next few years: Cars 3, Toy Story 4 and Incredibles 2.
Pixar movies are funny and fantastic and all ploy at your emotions with wonderful characters and an always relatable story. But almost everything works out in the end of all their movies. What if they didn’t?
Pixar’s Finding Dory is out today, and it’s pretty damn good. Burger Fiction took the opportunity to look back at the history of the beloved animation studio’s groundbreaking work from 1984 to the present.
Pixar’s latest film, Finding Dory, opens this weekend and it comes with incredibly high expectations. It also comes with a brand new short film called Piper, directed by Alan Barillaro. A short clip from it is now online and it’s well worth checking out.
After it’s been released, a Pixar movie is so simple and enjoyable that it seems like it must have been almost effortless to create. The truth is Pixar’s films can and do change, almost right up to their release—and Finding Dory, which hits theaters June 17, is no exception. In fact, writer/director Andrew Stanton …
Cars 3 isn’t due out until next year, but we’ve just learned a new tidbit about the latest entry in the popular Disney-Pixar series: there will be a character whose purpose is to help the aging Lightning McQueen adapt to the newfangled ways of high-tech racing. Bonus: it’ll be a female character, too.
The new trailer for Finding Dory tugged at our heart strings earlier this week. These three new international trailers don’t quite do the same thing, but they do show off quite a bit more footage of the upcoming Finding Nemo sequel.
The trailers for Disney Pixar’s Finding Dory have been really good so far; they evoke the feelings of the 2003 original while providing some nice steps forward. This new trailer, though, uses some iconic music and new footage to really tug on those heartstrings, a lot more than the others.
If Netflix wasn’t already the most essential streaming service before, it probably will be soon. (Well, essential for those of us too lazy and/or strapped for cash to go buy our own copies.)
To be honest, it’s everything. The depth of their characters, the artistry in their animation, the comedy, the relationships. It’s a combination of all that that makes (most) Pixar movies excellent. But what makes Pixar movies special? It’s the story. It’s how Pixar movies try to weave a story that we can all relate…
We’ve already filled you in on everything you ever wanted to know about the making of Finding Dory. Now get a look at some lovely concept art—we’re already in love with Hank the cranky octopus!—for Andrew Stanton’s Finding Nemo sequel, which will be in theaters June 17.
For almost 10 years, Finding Nemo was Pixar’s most successful film. And yet, other movies kept getting sequels while our favorite fish story didn’t. At last, in 2010, writer/director Andrew Stanton got inspired. Five years later, on June 17, Finding Dory is coming to theaters.
Master toy customizer Sam Kwok has turned Hot Toys’ sixth-scale Starboost Iron Man XXXIX figure into what Toy Story’s Buzz Lightyear would almost certainly look like in real life. If Tony Stark ever started doing children’s birthday parties, this is definitely the armor he should wear.
Often, one of the best things about a new Pixar movie is getting to see a brand new short film beforehand. These are Oscar-quality animations with a huge variety of subjects, and the latest is no different. It’s called Piper.
Could a relationship between an astromech droid and an anthropomorphised articulated desk lamp ever really work? Debatable. But it’s worth a shot, because if it did, their offspring would be this fantastic R2-D2 Architectural Desk Lamp that ThinkGeek is now selling for $60.
If there’s one thing animators love, its sneaking visual references into movies, and Disney’s geniuses are some of the best at it.
In the second Finding Dory trailer, we’ve got a lot more scenes of Dory and Marlin on the journey to find Dory’s family. It’s completely charming, and yet somehow exactly the same as Finding Nemo—right down to what looks like Dory’s terrifying capture by humans.
