    Pixar fans are not happy about the 'Frozen' short playing before 'Coco'

    If you’ve seen Pixar’s latest offering, Coco, in the theater, you were likely greeted by a new short featuring Olaf from Frozen that is meant to bridge the gap between Frozen and its sequel that is set for release in 2019. There are few rare slices of praise for Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, but most are having none of its 21-minute runtime or its musical view of the holidays.

    Pixar Reveals First Details of 'Coco,' Its 2017 'Dia de Los Muertos' Film

    Inspired by Mexico’s Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), the film will tell the story of a 12-year-old Mexican boy who takes a mystical, musical journey into his family’s past. As reported by Entertainment Weekly‘s Marc Snetiker, Coco will introduce us to Miguel Rivera (voiced by newcomer Anthony Gonzalez), who dreams of becoming a musician, but his family forbids it. The Riveras’ rule against music goes back to Miguel’s great-great-grandmother Imelda, who was abandoned when Miguel’s great-great-grandfather decided to pursue his musical dreams.

    How the R-Rated Animated 'Sausage Party' Owes Its Existence to Pixar

    It wasn’t the envelope-pushing South Park that most inspired Seth Rogen and the creators of the new R-rated animated film Sausage Party (though they did take notes from the cartoon mainstay’s creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, on how to sneak loads of lewd content by the MPAA). “It was mostly born out of a love for animation, and a love for Pixar movies, and DreamWorks Animation movies,” Rogen told Yahoo Movies (watch above) when he stopped by our studios with costar Michael Cera. “Well, that’s what we thought,” Rogen said.

    Finding Tons of Easter Eggs in 'Finding Dory' (Spoilers!)

    Aside from Dory, Marlin (Albert Brooks), and Nemo (Hayden Rolence), Finding Dory features appearances from old friends like the sea turtles Crush (voiced by the film’s director, Andrew Stanton) and Squirt (Bennett Dammann), Mr. Ray (Bob Peterson) and Nemo’s young school chums, along with a few surprises to reward Nemo devotees (the origin of the “Just Keep Swimming” song, for one). The plot, set just about a year after the events of Nemo, takes us from the Great Barrier Reef to the kelp forests off the California coast, where we meet new friends like Hank the septopus (Ed O’Neill), Destiny the clumsy whale shark (Kaitlin Olson), and the sonar-challenged beluga whale Bailey (Ty Burrell), as well as Dory’s long lost parents, Jenny (Diane Keaton) and Charlie (Eugene Levy). This being Pixar means we also get a healthy dose of Easter eggs, callbacks, and inside gags for the most attentive fans.

Now, we’ve got an exclusive clip from the opening moments of the sequel to the 2003 favorite Finding Nemo. In the scene, something (we won’t spoil what) has just triggered memories of the long-gone family of the orphaned, forgetful blue tang fish Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres).

A full screening of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War was scheduled to be the presentation’s entree, but Hollis added a nice surprise appetizer to the menu when he introduced Finding Dory director Andrew Stanton and producer Lindsey Collins, who then announced they would screen the first 27 minutes of Dory, the highly anticipated sequel to the 2003 hit Finding Nemo. Beyond the opening sequence that shall not be described, we find Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo (Hayden Rolence) going about their day-to-day routines one year after the events of Nemo.
