Pixar Update: "Wall E" & "Toy Story 3"

by | June 11, 2007 | Comments

It’s always a good time for some news from the Pixar team…

Time Magazine offers a few small tidbits on what we can expect from the Pixar magicians over the next few years.

That ambitious "Wall * E" flick is described like so: "A space-set remake of a 1931 Charlie Chaplin film about a blind girl wooed by a tramp she mistakenly believes is a rich man. Transferring the setting to a lonely planet, WALL * E is a cute little robot doing what he was made for – until he meets a female robot names Eve. "Star Wars" sound designer Ben Burtt will electronically voice the main roles, and writer-director Andrew Stanton ("Finding Nemo") will serve again in that capacity."

Sounds cool! Just keep Robin Williams away.

After that we’ll get something called "Up," which goes like this: "A ‘coming-of-old-age’ story which follows an elderly man befriends a clueless young Wilderness Ranger and gets into lots of globe-hopping, ass-kicking adventures with villains and beasts whilst still eating dinner in the early afternoon."

OK, not much to go on there, but in Pixar I trust.

As far as "Toy Story 3" goes, be patient. It’s not due in theaters until 2010, but you’ll be happy to know that Lee Unkrich (of "Finding Nemo" and "Toy Story 2") is presently working on the screenplay.

(Plus we get "Ratatouille" in a few days!)
