How come we don't get cool holiday cards like this? Coming Soon received a holiday greeting from Pixar that, when folded out, revealed concept art from their upcoming movies The Good Dinosaur, Untitled Pixar Movie About Dia de los Muertos and Unititled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside the Mind. These images were all revealed at last year's D23 event, but this is the first time non-attendees will get a good look at them.
Above is image from The Good Dinosaur. The synopsis for this one:
What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct?
Here, Pixar. Here is all of our money. In 2014, anyway, because that's when The Good Dinosaur is coming out.
That image is from the Inside the Mind feature, which hits in 2015. I actually wish that was the style of the film - sketchy and jazzy like that. It'll likely be a more traditional CG style when all is said and done. Pete Docter is the guy behind this film.
And again, this concept art is so evocative I wish the movie would be in this style. Sometimes 2D just looks awesome, doesn't it? Especially when it's hyper-stylized. Maybe that's the direction Pixar is going... although I really doubt it. Anyway, Dia de los Muertos movie hits in 2016, and that's from Lee Unkrich.
