Have a peek at some concept art for Pixar's 2013-2014 movies and beyond.Have a peek at some concept art for Pixar's 2013-2014 movies and beyond.

In 2014 it's their if-dinosaurs-didn't-go-extinct movie titled The Good Dinosaur, directed by Bob Peterson, with a tease we've seen before. In 2015 it's Pete Docter's 'Movie That Takes You Inside the Mind', now titled The Inside Out; and in 2016 they've also got Lee Unkrich's movie about Día de los Muertos, which we really don't know much about at all. Notably missing is Andrew Stanton's sequel Finding Nemo 2.

Modern Family's Ty Burrell to star in sequel to the recently relaunched Muppets franchise.Modern Family's Ty Burrell to star in sequel to the recently relaunched Muppets franchise.

Ty Burrell, one of the stars of ABC's Modern Family, is set to join the cast of Disney's sequel to The Muppets as one of the movie’s human stars. Christoph Waltz was in talks for the role, but the Austrian actor’s schedule prevented the studio from making a deal. The adventure moves from Hollywood to Europe, and while the film is expected to have a slew of cameos -- as is the Muppets' movie tradition -- one of the key roles is an Interpol inspector, whom Burrell will portray.

Early review screenings of Toy Story 3 coming back quite positive already.Early review screenings of Toy Story 3 coming back quite positive already.

The folks over at CNET were lucky enough to get an advance screening of the movie and their consensus is that this installment will be a very big winner. Not that it wasn't a hard prediction to make even without seeing a screener but this is a neat read nonetheless for my fellow Pixar fans out there.

LucasArts announces special edition of Monkey Island 2 coming this summer.LucasArts announces special edition of Monkey Island 2 coming this summer.

This should be a happy day for all fans of the Monkey Island franchise. The previous special edition of Monkey Island for Xbox 360 (and practically all other major platforms) was a joy to play. Guybrush even has a new haircut this time around.

Well then, this trailer certainly reveals more about the plot than the previous one did. For awhile I thought it was just going to be Tony Stark versus Randy the Ram - guess that's not the case anymore.

Activision shuts down non-commercial fan-made King's Quest episodic series.Activision shuts down non-commercial fan-made King's Quest episodic series.

After talks and negotiations in the last few months between ourselves and Activision, they have reached the decision that they are not interested in granting a non-commercial license to The Silver Lining, and have asked that we cease production and take down all related materials on our website.

Want some insight as to what the TRON sequel will actually be about?Want some insight as to what the TRON sequel will actually be about?

This review lets loose a ton of details about the overall plot of the movie from an early draft script (may not be final version) so those who don't want the movie spoiled for them best move their light cycle right along. The film is scheduled to hit theaters sometime in December.

Trailer for Super Mario Galaxy 2 from Nintendo's Media Summit available online.Trailer for Super Mario Galaxy 2 from Nintendo's Media Summit available online.

I wasn't that big of a fan of the first Super Mario Galaxy to warrant running out and buying the sequel. This seriously looks like more of the same video game except for a couple of new gameplay mechanics (and the inclusion of Yoshi).  Maybe this would've lent itself better as DLC content. Oh... right.

Interesting choice of casting for a Spider-Man villian. That is of course, if the movie manages to see the light of day (script and production issues have been plaguing the project according to rumors). Oh well, it can't be any worse than Spider-Man 3... can it?

We’ll introduce some new young Ghostbusters, and all the old guys will be in it, too. Think Christopher Lloyd in Back to the Future ... GB3 is progressing with plans to shoot next summer and release in 2011.

Looks kind of interesting, heres to hoping this movie is in no way similiar to Spider-Man 3 or *gasp* Batman Forever. Seriously, why does a superhero movie need more than one main villain? The answer is we don't. Thanks.

I've yet to play the original Batman: Arkham Asylum but I've heard very good things from those who have. Didn't the original game only come out like yesterday? Edit: it came out August 25th of this year. Still, that's a pretty short timeframe.

LucasArts announces sequel to Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.LucasArts announces sequel to Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

To say that I was a big fan of the first game is a bit of an understatement. I'll be buying this the day it comes out which of course has yet to be revealed (2010 is the only date thus far). LucasArts has a high resolution version of the trailer over on their site for those so inclined.

Roger Rabbit sequel apparently in the works.Roger Rabbit sequel apparently in the works.

I'm guessing that this sequel would probably feature an up to date cast utilizing some of Disney's newer characters which range from Pixar's catalogue all the way over to the newly acquired Marvel library.  Can't be any worse than Looney Tunes: Back in Action, can it? Wait, maybe it can.
