The people at Pixar are used to routinely blowing the minds of audiences around the world. So it's natural to get excited about their new projects, even when the details are a little slight. So it is at the Happiest Con on Earth, D23, where Pixar announced a few tantalizing details for 2 future features.

The first one involves, of course, dinosaurs. Set for release on November 27, 2013 (Pixar is nothing if not prepared), the currently untitled project will be directed by Bob Peterson, who most recently co-directed Pixar's Up. According to the panel the movie "centers around an alternate version of earth wherein the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs missed the planet entirely, so humans have evolved side-by-side with dinosaurs." Some analysts have pointed out that this is weirdly similar to the premise of that live-action Mario Bros. movie, which might make this a good time to go ahead and admit that I haven't seen the live-action Mario Bros. movie.

[post-video postid="217984"]The second movie is set for release on May 30, 2014, and is even more mysterious than the dinosaur movie. Directed by Up's Pete Docter, it's said to take place "inside the human mind" and deal with "the formation of ideas," which might make this the Disney/Pixar version of Inception. Anyway, Cars 2 notwithstanding, it would be tough not get at least a little excited about these projects. (The Playlist)
