03. Inside Out
From Pete Docter, the director of Up and Monsters, Inc, Disney/Pixar's Inside Out takes inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl, Riley.
At the 2013 Siggraph convention, Docter told The Hollywood Reporter the story was "one of the most challenging I've ever had to put together", because the film has to tell simultaneously what is happening to the girl and what is happening inside her mind.
The other characters represent five emotions, namely Joy, Anger, Disgust, Sadness and Fear. The movie's scheduled for release on June 19 this year and we're already counting down the days.
04. Incredibles 2
It's an astonishing 11 years since The Incredibles first redefined the superhero movie as a hilarious tale of a dysfunctional family. And finally the team are back, with Pixar beginning pre-production on a sequel last March.
Brad Bird will direct and Samuel L Jackson has confirmed he'll reprise his role as Frozone. But despite the ending of the first film, it's been confirmed The Underminer will not be the villain in the sequel.
Beyond that, though, the studio is staying tight-lipped as to official release date, characters, and possible plot line, so we'll just have to sit on our hands for a while and have fun indulging in pointless speculation...
05. The Good Dinosaur
Disney/Pixar's 3D animation The Good Dinosaur reimagines history – the giant asteroid never hit the Earth, the dinosaurs never became extinct and they continued to thrive and live alongside humans.
The story follows Arlo, a teenage Apatosaurus with a big heart. After a traumatic event rattles Arlo's tranquil community, he sets out on a quest to restore peace, gaining an unlikely companion along the way – a young human boy named Spot.
Directed by Peter Sohn, this will be the first Pixar film not to have a literal villain, as nature itself will be the main antagonist. Voice talents will be provided by Lucas Neff, Bill Hader, Judy Greer, Neil Patrick Harris, John Lithgow and Frances McDormand.
