Big Screen Animation has linked to an interview with John Lasseter, director and the chief creative officer at Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios, on the Charlie Rose show on Friday. Along with highlighting the amazing run of films that Pixar has had over the years, and promoting the next Disney/Pixar film Brave, he gave some details about future Pixar projects.
Previously announced only as The Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside The Mind, we still don’t have a title, but Lasseter confirms that Pete Doctor is directing and hints at what we can expect from the film.
“Pete Docter, from Monsters, Inc. and Up, is doing a new film that takes place inside of a girl’s mind and it is about her emotions as characters, and that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.”
The Pixar Times also adds the official synopsis of the film:
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.
This sounds like the stuff of classic Pixar, but it will be a very long wait until 2014.
The full video of the excellent interview, which also includes a lengthy tribute to Steve Jobs and a discussion on animation generally, can be found embedded below.
The Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside The Mind will be released on 20 May 2014 from Disney/Pixar.
