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.

    • Disney reveals Star Wars Land concept art

      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.

    • Disney confirms Star Wars theme park attractions

      Disney have officially confirmed that plans are under way to create Star Wars themed lands at their theme parks.
      CEO Bob Iger has finally put an end to months of rumor and speculation regarding Disney's plans for Star Wars theme parks by announcing that both Hollywood Studios in Orlando, and Disneyland in Anaheim will be host to fully themed Star Wars lands.
      The announcement was made at Disney's D23 Expo and details ambitious plans for the two new areas, which would each be over 14-acres in size. Iger explained that they aim to push the boundaries of what is possible and that these new parks will take that aim to a new level, giving fans a whole galaxy to explore.
      There will be two signature attractions, including a Millennium Falcon flight simulator and an epic adventure that promises to put guests in the midst of a climactic battle.
      While fans wait for Star Wars land to become a reality, Disney will continue to update it's attractions, with a The Force Awakens update coming to the Star Tours ride later this year, and a new attraction called the Launch Bay which will allow fans to see Star Wars props and costumes and artwork.
      Also, next year will see the first 'Season of the Force' at the Orlando and Anaheim parks with exclusive events, with Space Mountain becoming Hyperspace Mountain with Star Wars music, visual effects, and more.
      It has yet to be announced whether these additions will also be replicated at Disney's international locations.
