Pete Docter’s Next Pixar Movie Will Take Place Inside Your Mind

By  · Published on August 22nd, 2011

There’s a lot going on at D23 (which I spent the last two weeks thinking was the new Eminem super group), but so far the most interesting development has been from Pixar and Pete Docter. With the money-making albatross of the Cars franchise off their necks, the studio is set to release Brave next summer, followed by Monsters University the summer after that, an untitled movie about dinosaurs over the Holidays of 2013, and then a concept from Docter the summer of 2014.

Essentially, there’s a lot of Pixar to enjoy before we get to it, but /film is reporting that the untitled movie will be set inside your head. Here’s the official synopsis:

“Pixar takes audiences on incredible journeys into extraordinary worlds: from the darkest depths of the ocean to the top of the tepui mountains in South America; from the fictional metropolis of Monstropolis to a futuristic fantasy of outer space. From director Pete Docter (“Up,” “Monsters, Inc.”) and producer Jonas Rivera (“Up”), the inventive new film will take you to a place that everyone knows, but no one has ever seen: the world inside the human mind.”

Slash is also reporting via The Playlist that Toy Story 3 writer Michael Arndt will be scripting for this project that will be “specifically about the formation of ideas.” Does that mean will get to see little baby ideas being born? Hopefully.

There’s nothing about this that’s not awesome. Except maybe the wait time.
