I am going to make it my business to get into CinemaCon next year. There has been tons of info coming out of the convention, with Disney and Pixar revealing their plans for new projects and a confirmation that there will be a ‘Muppets 2‘.

Disney revealed that there are plans to film a ‘Muppets 2‘ and this really isn’t much of a surprise, considering the ‘Muppets‘ movie did really well in theaters.

What is interesting is Pixar’s new projects, two of which are centered on Latino culture. For example, one of the projects is about Mexico’s Dia de Los Muertos. I am intrigued…

The Good Dinosaur – This Pixar comedy is from director Bob Peterson, co-director Peter Sohn and producer John Walker. According to Pixar, it’s about what would happen “if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct?” It will be released in the U.S. on May 30, 2014.

Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside The Mind — From Disney-Pixar’s announcement: “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.” The film is slated for release June 19, 2015.

Untitled Pixar Movie About Dia De Los Muertos — Per Disney-Pixar: “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. No release date yet.

We’ll keep our eyes open for sure.
