    As confirmed Friday at D23 Expo, Disney and Pixar will release The Incredibles 2 on June 15, 2018, 14 years after the original animated superhero hit became an instant favorite and eventual two-time Oscar winner. Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl — were in Anaheim to tout the upcoming sequel, but both admitted to Yahoo Movies that they are surprised the film has finally come to fruition. “I didn’t think they were going to do it,” Nelson said.

    As the first teaser trailer implied, Cars — until now Disney-Pixar’s most light-hearted franchise — is speeding in a decidedly darker direction with the upcoming threequel. The preview showed our red- and yellow-hued hero Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) flipping through the air in slow motion on his way to what will no doubt be a thunderous crash.

    How the R-Rated Animated 'Sausage Party' Owes Its Existence to Pixar

    It wasn’t the envelope-pushing South Park that most inspired Seth Rogen and the creators of the new R-rated animated film Sausage Party (though they did take notes from the cartoon mainstay’s creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, on how to sneak loads of lewd content by the MPAA). “It was mostly born out of a love for animation, and a love for Pixar movies, and DreamWorks Animation movies,” Rogen told Yahoo Movies (watch above) when he stopped by our studios with costar Michael Cera. “Well, that’s what we thought,” Rogen said.

    Finding Tons of Easter Eggs in 'Finding Dory' (Spoilers!)

    Aside from Dory, Marlin (Albert Brooks), and Nemo (Hayden Rolence), Finding Dory features appearances from old friends like the sea turtles Crush (voiced by the film’s director, Andrew Stanton) and Squirt (Bennett Dammann), Mr. Ray (Bob Peterson) and Nemo’s young school chums, along with a few surprises to reward Nemo devotees (the origin of the “Just Keep Swimming” song, for one). The plot, set just about a year after the events of Nemo, takes us from the Great Barrier Reef to the kelp forests off the California coast, where we meet new friends like Hank the septopus (Ed O’Neill), Destiny the clumsy whale shark (Kaitlin Olson), and the sonar-challenged beluga whale Bailey (Ty Burrell), as well as Dory’s long lost parents, Jenny (Diane Keaton) and Charlie (Eugene Levy). This being Pixar means we also get a healthy dose of Easter eggs, callbacks, and inside gags for the most attentive fans.

    Finding Dory is primed to make boatloads of cash when it opens in theaters next week; early reports indicate it could even be Pixar’s biggest opening of all time. As we reported after a sneak peek of the first act in April, the first 27 minutes alone are enough to drown you in laughter and tears. Now, we’ve got an exclusive clip from the opening moments of the sequel to the 2003 favorite Finding Nemo. In the scene, something (we won’t spoil what) has just triggered memories of the long-gone family of the orphaned, forgetful blue tang fish Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres).

    Theatrical executive Dave Hollis showed footage and trailers from the studio’s live-action fairy tales (Jungle Book), Marvel properties (Doctor Strange), Lucasfilm giants (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), in-house animation (Moana), and Pixar projects (Finding Dory). A full screening of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War was scheduled to be the presentation’s entree, but Hollis added a nice surprise appetizer to the menu when he introduced Finding Dory director Andrew Stanton and producer Lindsey Collins, who then announced they would screen the first 27 minutes of Dory, the highly anticipated sequel to the 2003 hit Finding Nemo. Beyond the opening sequence that shall not be described, we find Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo (Hayden Rolence) going about their day-to-day routines one year after the events of Nemo.

    The Making of 'The Good Dinosaur,' Frame by Frame

    Pixar generally takes many years to make its movies, because in animation, every single frame needs to be planned and manufactured from scratch. It’s arguably even more complicated for computer animation, because of all the steps required to build, manipulate, and polish the characters and landscapes in the film.

    While previewing its upcoming live-action film slate at the D23 fan expo, Disney dropped the blockbuster news that the company’s vaunted Imagineers were plotting an immersive Star Wars Land to cover 14 acres at both the Orlando and Anaheim outpost. Later on, however, during a separate panel focusing solely on the theme parks, we learned the studio-resort synergy will encompass far more than a cantina and Millennium Falcon simulator. In fact, it stretches beyond Star Wars to the company’s other acquired brands, Marvel and Pixar.
