Hollywood Studios Pixar place expansion is coming

It seems like the Studio Backlot Tour at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is finally closing. A few days ago we told you that once Soundstage 1 at the park moves Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post and Frozen Funland out, work is set to begin on a third track for Toy Story Midway Mania inside of that building. Well, now it seems like the area surrounding Soundstage 1 will be used for the rest of a large-scale PIXAR Place expansion.

Likely coming to the park are some of the small, flat-rides developed for Toy Story Playland at Disneyland Resort Paris and Toy Story Land at Hong Kong Disneyland including RC Racer, Slinky Dog Zigzag Spin, and the Toy Soldier Parachute Drop. The attractions possibly on the chopping block take up much more room than these small rides would, so chances are the remaining space would be used for Cars or Monsters Inc. attractions.

Operating hours calendars released to cast members currently have only a few days of October hours for many of the offerings in that area, including the Monsters Inc. meet and greet, the Studio Backlot Tour, the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure, the Coke Bottle food stand, Studio Catering Company, and High Octane Refreshments next door. All of these attractions have no dates posted past October 11th. So, in short, all of these offerings might be closing on October 11th, one week after the closure of Maelstrom at Epcot. All other attraction operating hours are listed through January, so you can see why it’s awfully suspicious that all of these items in one area are not listed after a date in mid-October.

Finding Nemo

Soundtrack of the Month: Thomas Newman - Finding Nemo


Nemo is a curious and impressionable six-year-old boy who lives alone with his overprotective, single-parent father, Marlin. Having led a sheltered life, Nemo brims with the excitement of starting school and finally seeing the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. Despite being born with a withered fin, Nemo yearns for adventure, and as fate takes him far from home, he learns he is capable of doing great things… like his father

First Clip from ‘Lava’

Pixar’s shorts often feature ideas that are more bold than those seen in the studio’s feature films. The shorts allow Pixar to experiment with new technology, while also providing its talent with a space to be more creative. Given that the shorts do not provide Disney and Pixar with much of a financial benefit, the short films are the perfect avenue to take more risks. The animation studio’s next short, Lava, is a musical that stars a volcano searching for love

Lava is directed by James Ford Murphy, who has taken the lead director role for the first time at Pixar. The short, described in its official synopsis as “a musical love story that spans millions of years,” tells the story of Uku the volcano, who unlike those around him (as seen in the short’s poster above), is alone. Just from the concept, the short is one of the most “out-there” ideas we have seen from the studio. The fascinating premise, alone, has our attention, but we have seen plenty of interesting ideas from Emeryville translate into incredible projects, so we may have the opportunity to see something truly special.

Yahoo! premiered the Lava clip, which features Uku singing its (his?) heart out. The music, written by Murphy, is what you will notice first. The animation, though, is what will “wow” you – we have come a long way from the mid 90s in the computer animation department, and just a few seconds of this short will demonstrate that. 

Lava, currently playing at film festivals around the world, debuts in theaters on June 19, 2015 with Inside Out!

'Toy Story That Time Forgot' Battlesaur Sky Broadband Commercial.

Sky has just released a hilarious commercial allowing us to get a glimpse at the “dangerously delusional” band of Battlesaurs. The hilarious fifty-one second commercial was directed by veteran television-spot and Partysaurus Rex director, Mark Walsh and we have to say that the character development by Steve Purcell-and-team is just brilliant - the Battlesaurs draw you in right away and make you want to see more.
