With Pixar’s most recent movies, Toy Story 3 and Cars 2, both being sequels fans have been calling for more original movies from the company. Thankfully we’re getting one in June 2012 called Brave, which is set in the mystical Scottish Highlands and will feature the first female protagonist in a Pixar film (expect a teaser with Cars 2).
As for 2013 we’re getting Monsters Inc. prequel Monsters University, which follows the origins of Mike and Sully’s relationship all the way back to their time at the University of Fear. However Pixar recently announced that they’re planning to release another movie in 2013, on November 27, and it will feature an original story.
Details of what it will be are currently unknown. Last year Pixar cancelled Newt, which would have followed the last remaining male and female blue-footed newts on the planet. That project is unlikely to be revived, but at least we have another original Pixar movie to look forward to.
