Disney and Pixar just revealed the key characters and voices for their upcoming, highly anticipated sequel to The Incredibles.

When a new Pixar film arrives, it’s usually accompanied by a charming animated short. I loved these shorts growing up—sometimes they’re even better than the feature they precede. That’s why it was so hard to watch as Disney scrapped the tradition and instead spat out a never-ending ad for Frozen merchandise last night…

Disney’s latest Pixar film, Coco, may feature gorgeous visuals and shambling skeletons, but as shown in the final trailer for the upcoming film, the heart of Coco is family. And grandma’s tamales.
When it came to making the Land of the Dead skeletons for the upcoming Disney film Coco, Pixar had a unique challenge on its hands. Since so much of animation is about ooey-gooey humans, how do you build characters stripped of their flesh, muscle, and organs without terrifying an audience of kids? By making two little…
Watching Coco, I couldn’t stop thinking about Back to the Future. Both films are about young men who travel to an impossible place and have to solve an issue with their family.
