Pixar Animation Studios LogoComingSoon.Net reports in from CinemaCon with a few bits of terrific news on Disney-Pixar’s upcoming projects. This includes the announcement of the title for the previously Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs, an update on the The Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside The Mind and a brand new film announced around the holiday of Dia de los Muetros. The great news is, none of them are prequels or sequels!

First up, the untitled dinosaur film will now be called The Good Dinosaur, and is now due for a US release on 30 May 2014. The film proposes that the evolution-changing asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs actually missed the Earth, and dinosaurs still exist and continue to evolve. It will be directed by Bob Peterson (Up).

The previously hinted Lee Unkrich project, now will be produced with Darla Anderson and will be set around the holiday of Dia de los Muertos. Disney-Pixar describes the film as follows:

“From director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson, the filmmaking team behind the Academy Award®-winning Toy Story 3, comes a wholly original Pixar Animation Studios film that delves into the vibrant holiday of Día de los Muertos”.

Finally, the Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside The Mind has now been pushed back from 30 May  2014 to 19 June 2015. The extra year can perhaps help them find a title. The official synopsis was released late 2011:

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.

A prequel to Monsters Inc, titled Monster University, is also slated for 21 June 2013. With Brave due out in cinemas very soon, it is an exciting time to be a fan of Disney-Pixar!
