Dan Scanlon (Monsters University) is working on an original feature at Pixar.

Quote:
Q: After The Good Dinosaur, what else does Pixar have in the pipeline?

Jim Morris: We have a bunch of confirmed titles. There’s Finding Dory later this year. We’re working on The Incredibles 2, Cars 3 and Toy Story 4. Dan Scanlon, who did Monsters University is working on an original film.

I can't say I'm expecting anything out of this or the Mark Andrews one.

Scanlon's movie is tentatively called "The Untitled Pixar Film That Takes You to a Suburban Fantasy World". Why can't Pixar just give their projects real working titles instead of doing this long-winded mess? :roll:

This one seems to be inspired by Scanlans childhood. I think it could go either way though - really emotional like Inside Out or may fail to find an audience like Good Dinosaur.

The premise is a non-human world of goblins, elves, sprites where magic was hard to do and so people kind of forgot about it and invented things because they were easier to use - appliances, cars, fast food, etc.

Two teenage brothers go on a journey to try to spend one day with their deceased father whom they don't remember (paralleling Scanlans childhood).

The film doesn't have a title yet.

This must be one of the 2 Pixar films releasing 90 days from each other:

Here's the official synopsis and a piece of concept art:

Quote:
According to Scanlon, who lost his father at a very young age, the film is inspired by the question he’s always asked: who was my father? The story is set in a world with no humans—only elves, trolls and sprites—“anything that would be on the side of a van in the ’70s,” said the director. “In the film, we’re going to tell the story of two teenage elf brothers whose father died when they were too young to remember him. But thanks to the little magic still left in the world, the boys embark on a quest that will allow them a chance to spend one last magical day with their father.”

Would be great if this came out in 2020 along with Gigantic. I can see the headline: After 3 years of sellout/cash grab garbage, originality returns to WDAS/Pixar :clap:

Maybe there will be a return to the land of the dead as in Coco, but only a short visit rather than a whole movie (and obvious a very different version of it).

It does make me think of Steven Spielberg's A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001). But that's assuming the brothers end up doing what they have set out to do.

I doubt it'll have anything to do with Coco. Both are two very different mythologies which won't mix. The film sounds intriguing though.

No, I doubt it. I was just commenting potential similarities.

Oh sorry, I misread your post and thought you were saying that the film would feature the world of the dead from Coco. I definitely can see what you really meant though.

When the project was announced at the last D23 Expo, I also thought it had some similarities with Coco (which of course hadn't yet premiered by then, but we already knew some details about the story). But I think in this film the two brothers will probably bring their father back from the dead by casting some magic spell instead of going to a land of the dead. The magical world where the film is set also reminded me of Prince Caspian, the second Narnia book/movie. There there's also a fantasy world whose inhabitants have forgotten about magic. But it's still an original and interesting concept. I'm really looking forward to this movie and I hope it won't get cancelled like Gigantic.

Here are some more details from the D23 presentation:

Quote:
According to Scanlon, this is a modern fantasy world where, once upon a time, there was real magic. But learning magic is hard and, eventually, technological innovation became easier. Soon magic was replaced almost entirely with modern technology. Concept art showed a mystical, face-having tree looming over a parking lot full of ordinary looking sedans. There are no humans in this world; the residents are elves, trolls, and sprites. Scanlon joked that unicorns are so rampant they’re “practically rodents” as he flashed concept art of cute horned horses digging through an over-turned trash bin. Based on Scanlon’s own childhood dream to connect with a father who died before they could make any memories together, this new Pixar film promises all the imagination and emotional gut punches we’ve come to expect from the studio.

Quote:
"The story is based on a very personal story of mine," Scanlon began. He then went on to tell the story of how he was only a year old when his father died. His older brother was only three. While they watched home movies of him and saw photographs, they had never heard him speak. When the boys were teenagers a relative came forward with an audio recording of their father. Scanlon played the recording to the sea of people, who sat in rapt attention. You can only hear his father say two words: "Hi" and "bye." In true Pixar fashion, they had found the absolutely quickest and most effective way to get people to tear up.

"I have always wondered who my father was," Scanlon said. "And that question became the blueprint for this movie."

The filmmaker then went on to detail the project: it takes place in a fantasy world but, he was quick to point out, a "modern fantasy world." The premise is, as Scanlon put it, magic was "hard to do and complicated to learn and eventually they created machines that did everything magic could do." He went on to describe the world, which is a combination of "the fantastic and everyday" – mushroom houses have satellite dishes sticking out of them, etc. There are no human characters, they're all fantastical creatures ("anything that would be painted on the side of a van in the '70s" Scanlon joked). Also, unicorns are everywhere. They flashed an image of unicorns that had tipped over a trashcan, like glittery raccoons.

The premise of this is intriguing, but this above image is the one that stuck with me from that description.

Another one-word title. I wonder what it refers to, if it's actually the movie's title.
