The next Pixar film will involve a scenario where the K-T extinction event did not happen, and the resulting consequences for evolution on planet Earth. From the article...
Pixar films with explore two new worlds in two upcoming films - the land of dinosaurs and the world inside the human mind - filmmakers announced at the D23 Expo 2011 Saturday.
The fan exposition in Anaheim, Calif., featured the announcement of the two yet untitled movies as executives promoted the entire Disney/Pixar slate.
The untitled dinosaur film will be released in the holiday season of 2013. Bob Peterson, who co-directed and voiced Dug the dog in the monster Pixar hit Up, will direct the new movie. He said he was inspired by a childhood visit to the World's Fair in New York where he saw animatronic dinosaurs created by Walt Disney. "It made a big impression on me," he said.
Peterson said the premise of the film will take aim at the notion that dinosaurs were made instinct by a giant asteroid hitting the Earth.
"In this film, the asteroid missed the Earth and dinosaurs continued to live," he says.
