Pete Docter's Next Pixar Movie Will Take Place In...

Nordling here.

Earlier this year at the D23 Expo, Pixar revealed some of the movies they have coming in the next few years, and one of the ideas was very intriguing - a film set inside the human mind.  And that's all we got.  No idea of the plot, or characters (if any), just that it would be Pete Docter's directorial follow-up to UP and that it was coming sometime in the future, probably 2014.  It sounded like a film that Pixar had never done before, but they're always breaking new ground with their films, so that's no surprise.

Well, John Lasseter recently told Charlie Rose a little more about the film, and the premise sounds unique, to say the least.  Docter's new film would indeed take place inside the mind - of a little girl, according to Lasseter.  He stated, "It is about her emotions as characters, and that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen."

Very curious to say the least.  Is the girl a young child or a teenager?  What would her emotions look like?  I doubt Pixar would go the cliché route of rainbows and unicorns.  It's also nice to see another film that won't be for the boys.  Will the story be able to sustain a feature-length film?  Knowing these guys, I'd say that's a yes.  It's good to see that Pixar is still pushing those limits, and I can't wait to see what they have cooked up.

Nordling, out.
