In a brilliant marketing campaign debut, Disney and Pixar teamed up with Ellen DeGeneres, AMC Theaters, Regal Cinemas, and Cinemark Theaters to unveil four brand new Finding Dory posters. Each poster cleverly plays with having to "find" Dory, creating an interactive hunt for audiences, playing along with the #HaveYouSeenHer? campaign. Check out the four new Finding Dory posters after the break!
In an interview with Pixar's newly appointed President Jim Morris, Timout.com has confirmed that 4 new original films are in development, not including Lee Unkrich's November 2017 film Coco! This development comes on the heals of some fans, including myself, worried that Pixar may have gone down the path of having too many sequels in the pipeline. With Finding Dory coming this Summer (2016), Cars 3 in 2017, Toy Story 4 in 2018, and The Incredibles 2 in 2019, the lineup looked rather dismal for original films, excluding again Coco in 2017. There were even some recent rumblings that Pete Docter and Jonas Rivera, who both just completed Inside Out, were working on a sequel to the wildly successful emotional adventure. So who are the director involved and when could we see films' release dates announcements? Speculation time! But first, read the segment from Jim Morris' interview with Timout.com after the break!
