Pixar + Star Wars = Awesome?


The latest rumour to come out of Latino Review is that Pixar have been given the go ahead to plan for a Star Wars film of their own.

It is likely that this would happen sooner or later, with Star Wars and Pixar both in the hands of Disney, but it looks like the signal has been given for Pixar to get to work on their take on an animated Star Wars movie.

Pixar's release schedule is packed at the moment, with Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur, and Finding Dory already in the works, so it's unlikely that we'll see this any time before 2017, but if rumours are true then this would be Pixar's first movie based on an existing franchise. Hopefully Pixar still get to have their take on it, and we don't just end up with a standard animated film that could have been done by anybody.

To be a true to Pixar's spirit in an existing property may prove difficult, but I'm sure there are a lot of fans who can't wait to see what this combination would turn out like. With Disney planning to release a Star Wars movie every year, it's inevitable that they will have to use all of their assets to keep the ball rolling.

Of course, rumours are rumours and until official word is released by Disney or Pixar, it is anybody's guess what will happen in the future.

    • Galaxy's Edge - new details revealed!

      As Disney prepare to open the Star Wars Galaxy's Edge theme park at their California and Florida resorts, new details have emerged from press previews of what promises to be the most immersive Star Wars experience by far.
      The park is themed around the outer rim planet Batuu, with roleplaying experiences and missions to be discovered. Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run is sure to be a big hit with fans, as they pilot the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, and in "Rise of the Resistance" visitors will be captured by the First Order and taken aboard a Star Destroyer.
      Retail stores will allow you to customise your own droid and build your own lightsaber, while restaurants will showcase food from around the galaxy including Ronto Wraps, Endorian Tip-Yip, and of course, Blue Milk.
      Galaxy's Edge opens in Disneyland California this summer, and in Disney World Florida in Fall 2019.

      Disney has revealed concept art for the upcoming Star Wars Land theme park to views of Disneyland's diamond celebration television special, The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60.
      A Star Wars theme park has been rumored ever since Disney picked up the franchise from George Lucas, and was finally confirmed by chairman Bob Iger during Disney's D23 Expo in August 2015.
      The show featured some artwork we already saw from D23, but also revealed new information about the 14 acre park which will feature a Millennium Falcon ride and an interactive experience of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Other areas shown in the previews include a restaurant, cantina, and a walkthrough street bazaar.
      The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60 is available to watch on ABC’s official site.
