Pixar unveils two new features

If you were concerned the dream-weavers at Pixar were resting on their laurels and had become content with merely churning out sequels, fear not. Two new features have been promised by the studio at Disney’s D23 expo over the weekend.

According to Slashfilm, the first film comes from Bob Peterson, co-director of Upand will feature dinosaurs. It is set for a 2013 release. Here’s the official plot synopsis:

“What if that life-changing asteroid missed Earth? Director Bob Peterson’s hilarious tale depicts a world where dinosaurs never went extinct.”

That will be followed by a new, brain-based film from Peterson’s fellow Up helmer Pete Docter. It is set for release in 2014. Disney’s official plot below:

“Pixar takes audiences on incredible journeys into extraordinary worlds: from the darkest depths of the ocean to the top of the tepui mountains in South America; from the fictional metropolis of Monstropolis to a futuristic fantasy of outer space. From director Pete Docter (“Up,” “Monsters, Inc.”) and producer Jonas Rivera (“Up”), the inventive new film will take you to a place that everyone knows, but no one has ever seen: the world inside the human mind.”

Of course, before we see these flicks, we will be treated to Brave and Monsters University.
