Elemental is coming to Theaters this 2023. My eyes are feasting from this visually delightful animation. CGI technology had improved immensely because I have visuals of translucent character models.
Why should you buy Turning Red even though you can see it on Disney+? Because the version you can actually own, instead of rent, comes with all sorts of bonus features and extra content you can’t see any other way. The exception are these deleted scenes, which you can see even if you have no Disney+ subscription (something had to be dangled out there to entice people).
Whether you realize it or not, an interesting experiment is currently going on in the home video marketplace: the selling of movies that made their debut not in theaters, but on streaming. In other words, to take something home that you already saw at home. The question is, will people be willing to pay for something they can already see via subscription? Is a hard physical copy important to enough consumers that this sort of thing can be supported? ….Honestly, I hope so.
Reportedly, the last thing Toy Story creator John Lasseter greenit before he left Disney in disgrace was something called “Lightyear.” We’re just now seeing what that is. It’s not another Toy Story sequel, it’s something else entirely…and kind of confusing.
Turning Red is an upcoming Pixar film about a young Chinese-Canadian girl who experience a Puberty like no other. Mei-lee (Rosalie Chiang) was the typical teenage girl. She loves to hang out with her friends and fangirl to boybands. She also experiences pressure because she has the typical strict mom (Sandra Oh) with high expectations. Despite that, she loves social life and she is excited for the new school year. Little did she know, her family has an ancient secret. Her family has a connection with Red Pandas.
Dug Days is coming to Disney Plus this September. It is a Series of Animated shorts that will continue the story of Up. Dug will be the central character of the show but Russell and Carl will still appear as recurring characters.
Pixar’s Luca is about two boys who get to enjoy their summer at the scenic views of Italy. They get to enjoy Italian food like Gelato, Pizza, and Pasta as well. Both of them also get to befriend a girl. The plot description I gave sounds like a plot of a “Slice of life” anime but there is a twist. Luca is a Sea monster pretending to be a human boy. For some yet to be revealed reason, Alberto, the human boy he befriended becomes a monster too.

For the first time in several years, we’re getting two Pixar movies within one year. 2020 will see the release of Onward, about a magical community that’s become domesticated, in March — and then three months later, we’ll get Soul, the latest from director Pete Docter.
Tired of sequels? You’ll be pleased to know that after Pixar gets Toy Story 4 out of their system, they’ve got a lineup of straight unseen original concepts for the next few years. And the first of these, Onward, premieres in theaters next March.
Before he got kicked out for boundary issues, one of John Lasseter’s last acts as Pixar Czar was to put Toy Story 4 into production. The story goes that he initially didn’t think continuing the story after the planned trilogy was a good idea, but then he was so moved by the concept of Woody setting out to find his lost love Bo Peep, he couldn’t resist.
Rare is the entertainment service that actually nails it right out of the gate. True, Disney has a ridiculous amount of resources at this point, but money can’t always buy you competency. We were ready to laugh at Disney+, the behemoth’s attempt to muscle into the streaming market, but….based on their presentation yesterday, we’d say they got it right, and we have little to complain about.
