Another intriguing part of the interview was Jim's note about the two films slated for 2020 — the article notes that both films are, "independent of one another but both of which take place in 'unusual but believable worlds that take us in even other directions than we've pursued in the past'". What could these "unusual" worlds be?
Jim had previously noted in February of this year that Dan Scanlon and Mark Andrews were both working on original features (possibly aligning to the two 2020 films). In 2012 as Brave was hitting theaters, an LA Times article noted that Mark Andrews (prior to starting on Brave), "was pursuing his own projects, including an unannounced Pixar feature with some sci-fi elements". Is it possible that some of these sci-fi elements could be the unusual or believable worlds?
We're very excited and interested to learn more about Pixar's upcoming films — three sequels and five original films. What are your thoughts on Jim's comments as well as the "unusual worlds"? Leave a comment below or chat about the films with other fans in the Pixar Post Forum.
