We got our first look at Wreck-It Ralph 2, where the arcade gets a w-ifi connection and Ralph and Vanellope are sucked into the internet, an update on The Incredibles 2, which will return to Brad Bird's original superhero universe, and an extended look at Coco, inspired by Día de los Muertos. A work-in-progress clip showed Jack-Jack sneaking out of the house while Bob's sleeping to take on a trash-stealing raccoon with his new abilities. "It's like driving a brand-new auto".
As you may recall, The Incredibles concluded with the Parr family (having just saved the city from a marauding robot) leaving young Dash's track meet, only for a new threat to literally emerge from the ground. The downside? It's "made up of sharp corners, which is not ideal for a baby".
They then screened a mockumentary short with real-life fashion icons and personalities talking about the influence of Incredibles character Edna Mode, and then they actually talked about The Incredibles 2. During this year's D23 Expo, it was revealed that Toy Story 4 is the official title for the sequel and that Josh Cooley is going to be directing the project solo, as John Lasseter has stepped away from the director's chair on this one.
One of the unique things about the Incredibles is it's really a story of a family set in the world of superheroes.
In other Pixar news, Lasseter announced an as-yet untitled new project to be directed by Monsters University's Dan Scanlon. The film is due to arrive just before Toy Story 4 in April 2019. One day, he heard a recording of his late father saying two words: "hi, bye".
Disney and Pixar are spilling new info on their upcoming movies Incredibles 2, Toy Story 4, and Coco!
The film will be a mix of fantasy and mundane, a world where unicorns will be so prevalent that they are the rodents in that world.
The voice cast includes Benjamin Bratt, Gael Garcia Bernal, Edward Janes Olmos, and newcomer Anthony Gonzalez as the film's protagonist, 12-year-old Miguel.
