Here is some big animation news, from the biggest of the big. Pixar has released their projects through the year 2012. There are a couple of sequels in there–which is to be expected–but plenty of shiny new goodness as well.

So, this is a packed schedule, but rest assured, if any of the new release titles take off, this could be revised to add sequels.

The next film up is Wall-E, but following that release, here is the rest of the schedule.

Up
featuring the voices of Christopher Plummer, John Ratzenberger and Jordan Nagai.

Tinkerbell will go direct-to-DVD, followed by three sequels.
(My note: This could be a good franchise, and straight to DVD as well. Kids should be happy)

Rapunzel
is back and in full CGI.
(My note: Make it good and don’t go for the damned awful “cute” factor)

King of the Elves
is another film coming from Disney animation in 2012, and it’s based on a Phillip K. Dick story.
(My note: this is the most exciting show for me)

Toy Story
and Toy Story 2 to be released in 3-D in 2009 and 2010.

Toy Story 3 hits theaters on June 18, 2010
(My note: I wonder how well Woody and Buzz have aged?)

Newt
will
be Pixar’s film in 2011, and it comes with this description: “What
happens when the last remaining male and female blue-footed newts on
the planet are forced together by science to save the species, and they
can’t stand each other?
(my note: just what the world needs, a romantic comedy referencing newt sex, sounds laugh a minute to me!)

Cars 2
coming in 2012!
(my note: I can wait. I know it was popular, but the game really needs to be upped here)

So there it is. Not the most inspired schedule, but Pixar is playing a money game as well as an artistic one. I will never bag on Pixar for what the company has brought to animation, but some of these seem a bit lifeless on delivery.

Is it too much to ask for a bit of spreading the proverbial wings?

Oh well, time will tell.

Cheers,
Eban
