Hopefully these “Hawaiian Vacation” shorts won’t end in Mr. Potato Head getting buried at sea or something.
Have you always had the perverted yet overwhelming desire to lick the backsides of your favorite Pixar characters? Well then, it looks like you’re in luck! The U.S. Postal Service is continuing their “Art of Disney” stamp line with images from several Pixar films.
Despite the belief that they would clean their room and eat all of their vegetables like a good animation house, Pixar isn’t ready to put their toys away just yet.
There are no plans to make another Toy Story sequel, but that won’t stop Woody and the gang from returning to the big screen. According to director Lee Unkrich, the iconic characters will be back in theaters for a series of animated shorts which will run before full-length Disney films, starting with this summer’s Cars 2.
Good news for people who like things that are unbelievably awesome. Jason Segel and the team involved with the next Muppet movie recently met with the bigwigs at Pixar to discuss ways to make your head explode.
Some of the members of the so-called "Pixar Brain Trust" — filmmakers John Lasseter, Brad Bird, Pete Docter, Andrew Stanton, Michael Arndt, Bob Peterson and president Ed Catmull — were there for the consultations. Docter is a particularly avid Muppets fan, so he almost certainly was one of the attendees. On the Disney side, Muppets director James Bobin and producers David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman were likely in the room along with Segel.
While plot details are hard to come by, as long as they don't have Kermit and Fozzie experimenting with homosexuality and adopting African children, I'll pay to see it twice. And even if they did go that route, with this kind of talent behind the film, it's hard to imagine how it could end up sucking. In fact, I haven't been this excited about a film's prospects since I first heard that an unfettered George Lucas was working on a little film called Phantom Menace. (THR)
In this exclusive, behind the scenes look at Toy Story 3, Ned Beatty and Michael Keaton join an ensemble cast for the most powerful chapter to date in the beloved franchise. When Andy heads off to college, adventure fanatic Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) takes his toy friends on a river-rafting trip into the dangerous American back-country. During a chance encounter with a group of locals, an offhand comment about moonshine by Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear (Beatty) leads to a violent sexual assault. The trip soon descends into a nightmare in which both nature and mankind conspire against the toys, putting their lives and perhaps even their souls at risk.

The IESB has posted three behind-the-scenes clips from Disney-Pixar's Up. In total, it's 15 minutes of straight up, fly-on-the-wall making-of goodness, with none of the gloss one might expect from a Disney promo. Yeah that's right. It's 15-minutes of watching a dude sitting in front of a computer while it renders seven frames of the movie. There's also this part where Pete Docter orders a cheese sandwich from the cafeteria.I kid, I kid. It's pretty cool. Watch the other clips after the jump.
