Pixar, the trailblazing studio in animated storytelling, has earned its place as a beacon of cinematic excellence. Renowned for weaving captivating narratives and pushing the boundaries of animation, each Pixar film transcends age and culture, resonating profoundly with audiences worldwide. At the heart of Pixar’s brilliance lies its commitment to storytelling. Each film is meticulously crafted, marrying intricate plots with rich character development that resonates with audiences on a profound level. From the heartwarming tale of friendship in ‘Toy Story’ to the touching exploration of emotions in ‘Inside Out’, Pixar has consistently delved into themes that tug at the heartstrings while sparking joy and introspection. In this article, we’ll talk about the upcoming movies from Pixar, exploring how they continue to redefine the landscape of animated cinema through their innovative storytelling and technical brilliance.
Inside Out 2
The original Inside Out is one of the most innovative movies made by Pixar to date and showed how the studio wasn’t afraid of experimenting by thinking out of the box. The sequel to this movie is set to come out in 2024, and the animated coming-of-age film will be directed by Kelsey Mann (in his feature directorial debut), produced by Mark Nielsen, and written by Meg LeFauve. The film will star the voices of Amy Poehler, Phyllis Smith, and Lewis Black, reprising their roles, with Tony Hale, Liza Lapira, and Maya Hawke joining the cast as newcomers.
As far as the plot is concerned, Inside Out 2 will show Riley as a teenager and will depict how the headquarters is undergoing a complete revamp due to the arrival of new emotions. Joining the existing emotions such as joy, sadness, anger, fear, and disgust will be anxiety. The way in which the original movie dealt with the emotions, it will be really interesting to see how Inside Out 2 deals with the showcase of new emotions.

Toy Story 5
The Toy Story series from Pixar spans almost four decades now, and while the core idea behind these movies remains the same, the storytelling from Pixar is elevated with every single entry in this saga. While at the end of both Toy Story 3 and Toy Story 4 it felt like this was the end of the road for Woody, Disney CEO Bob Iger surprised Toy Story fans earlier this year when he shared that Toy Story 5 is now under production at Pixar. While there are some fans who have questioned if there is truly a need for a fifth movie, considering how well the story has shaped till now and seemingly reached its organic end. However, with Toy Story 4 making more than $1 billion at the box office, it is hardly a surprise that the studio has received a green signal for the next entry in the series.
Toy Story 5 potential release date and trailer
While there is no official word on the release date for Toy Story 5, if the movie ends up following a similar development cycle as its predecessors, we can expect it to hit theatres anywhere between 2026 and 2028. This means that the movie could be released around nine years after the release of Toy Story 4. Unfortunately, there has been no teaser trailer of the movie released as of now. But we can expect to see it next year, considering how Pixar tends to release teaser trailers much ahead of the official release of its movies.
‘Elio’ is an upcoming animated sci-fi adventure film from Disney and Pixar, set to release in 2025.
