The Onion Reviews Toy Story 4

The Onion Reviews Toy Story 4

The Onion’s film critic Peter K. Rosenthal takes a look at the latest Toy Story film, comparing the CGI animated tale with its source material, a traditional German fairy tale “die Reise der Spielzeuge,” written in 1793. Needless to say that Disney Pixar’s version comes off as a little watered down.

Toy Story 4 (Trailer)

Woody and his pals are spending time with little Bonnie these days, and the kid has decided to add a new toy to her collection – “Forky” (or is that “Sporky?”). But the plastic utensil is reluctant about his new role, and leads the toys on a wild new adventure.

If Toy Story was a Thriller

If Toy Story was a Thriller

Sure, BloodBlitz cheated by adding some blood and explosions, but for the most part their Toy Story gone evil trailer parody is made from actual footage from the classic Pixar franchise. Seriously, Babyface is the stuff of nightmares.

Kitbull

Kitbull

A stray kitten is threatened when a pit bull moves in next to its hiding place. The cat does its best to push the dog away, but one day sees that they both could use a friend. This Pixar artist-made short film does a great job of capturing the nuances of a kitten’s behavior.

Smash and Grab

Smash and Grab

Smash works inside a locomotive, powering the engine with his partner Grab. He’s tired of doing the same thing over and over again, and more importantly if being literally tied down to his job. So when he sees an opportunity to escape, he doesn’t hesitate.

Pixar: Purl

Pixar: Purl

From Pixar’s “SparkShorts,” comes an animated short about an anthropomorphic ball of yarn who gets a job working among a bunch of bros in business suits. Director Kristen Lester’s film is a lighthearted tale about embracing what makes us unique.

The Pixar Moment

The Pixar Moment

Pixar’s movies are often tearjerkers. But they are also about characters who change for the better. ScreenPrism looks at Toy Story, Up and Ratatouille to show the three types of obstacles that Pixar characters overcome on their way to making us cry.

Avengers: Infinity War and Beyond!

Avengers: Infinity War and Beyond!

How It Should Have Ended envisions not how Avengers: Infinity War should have ended, but instead what it might have been like if a different Disney-owned character was the real bad guy looking to fill up his Infinity Gauntlet.

Pixar’s Scrapped Ideas

Pixar’s Scrapped Ideas

For the most part, Disney/Pixar has had great instincts when it comes to characters and stories. Here, they reveal a few of the ideas that never made it to the big screen, most with good reason. We’re so glad they changed directions with Up. Oh, and they forgot one.

Incredibles 2 (Teaser)

Incredibles 2 (Teaser)

It’s been over 13 years, but Bob Parr and his super-powered family are coming back to the big screen. From the looks of the teaser, it’s Baby Jack-Jack’s time to shine. And unless one of his powers is slowing time, it takes place shortly after the original. Premieres 6/15/18.

Telling a Story from the Inside Out

Telling a Story from the Inside Out

Coco (Teaser)

Coco (Teaser)

Disney Pixar’s latest film follows the story of a young man whose family has for some reason banned music, but who dreams of one day becoming a musician himself. It looks kind of like Kubo and the Two Strings had a baby with The Book of Life. Opens 11/22/17.

Mad Max: Pixar Road

Mad Max: Pixar Road

Comedian Paul Savage envisions what might happen if Disney/Pixar got their hands on the Mad Max franchise, by simply applying the eyes from the vehicles in Cars to the deathmobiles from George Miller’s action flick. He needs to do this with The Fast & The Furious next.

Darth Vader vs. Buzz Lightyear

Darth Vader vs. Buzz Lightyear

Toy Story’s spacey action hero must do battle with the Dark Lord of the Sith after landing his spaceship right under his nose. Will good or evil triumph in this unexpected showdown from the guys at Nukazooka? We knew this sort of thing would happen after Disney bought Star Wars.

Balloon Pin House

Balloon Pin House

UK Designer Cliver Roddy’s clever desktop creation replicates the house from Pixar’s Up by using 300 pushpins as tiny surrogate balloons. You’ll need to stick them all into the cork sphere yourself, but that’ll give you something to pass the time. Made from birch plywood.

Pixar: Closing Shots

Pixar: Closing Shots

Vimeographer Sean compiled this series of closing sequences from all of Pixar’s feature films, other than the recently released Finding Dory. As is the case with everything Pixar – expect to have your emotions toyed with, in large part to his musical selections.

The Evolution of Pixar

The Evolution of Pixar

Burger Fiction’s latest compilation looks at how far CG animation has come from its early days, but also how Pixar’s core values of heartfelt stories and relatable characters have been there since the very beginning. 1988’s Knick Knack is still one of our all-time faves.

Finding Dory (Trailer 2)

Finding Dory (Trailer 2)

The forgetful fish Dory realizes that her parents might still be out there and goes out to find them with the help of Nemo, Marlin and her new friends from a marine life institute. We bet the octopus will be the third movie’s hero, but he’s too smart to need finding.

Pixar: What Makes a Story Relatable

Pixar: What Makes a Story Relatable

Kaptainkristian articulates Pixar’s recipe for success. The movie studio consistently makes wonderful animation and art, and their best movies are the ones that depict core values and relatable experiences, as opposed to parent company Disney’s more thinly veiled approach.

Finding Dory (Trailer)

Finding Dory (Trailer)

The forgetful fish Dory remembers that she has a family and sets out to find them in what appears to be an ironically familiar story, except now with an octopus, a beluga whale and a whale shark. Finding Dory premieres 6/17/16.

Pixar’s Tributes to Cinema

Pixar’s Tributes to Cinema

Its amazing to see how many times Pixar’s animators worked in references to classic films, as shown in this well executed, side-by-side video by Jorge Luengo Ruiz. From Hitchcock, to Kubrick, to Spielberg, to Welles, there are subtle and not-so-subtle tributes everywhere.

Inside Out: Emotional Theory

Inside Out: Emotional Theory

Inside Out is not a purely educational or technical piece, but it is founded on a psychological theory. Nerdwriter1 puts emphasis on “theory”, reminding us that we are not robots governed by our emotions – that we are less like Riley and more like Joy.
