One word, John Lasseter: Plastics.

The Pixar chief who changed the animation game with his innovative use of computer technology in 1995′s Toy Story will return to the directing chair to make a fourth movie about the adventures of Woody, Buzz, and the gang, Walt Disney CEO Robert Iger announced Tuesday.

The film is set to hit theaters in June 16, 2017, and in a somewhat surprising twist it will be written by Rashida Jones, formerly of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, and her screenwriting partner Will McCormack (who penned the 2012 indie romantic comedy Celeste and Jesse Forever.)

The story was conceived, however, by the Pixar brain trust: Lasseter, Finding Nemo‘s Andrew Stanton, Up and Monsters Inc.‘s Pete Docter, and and Toy Story 3‘s Lee Unkrich.

'ROYGBIV' makes your favorite Pixar movies even prettier

Pixar-Rainbow.jpg

ROYGBIV (noun)

1) An acronym that stands for the color order of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.

2) A short video, edited by Rishi Kaneria with music by Moderat, that brings various Pixar clips together, demonstrating how the animation studio uses said color spectrum, visually and narratively.

For our purposes, we’ll be discussing the latter…ROYGBIV, the video, begins strong with bold red and orange hues (i.e. Merida’s fiery red hair in Brave), mellows out a bit with relaxing yellows and greens (i.e. the pastel house from Up), and really cools off with blues, indigos, and violets (i.e. the ocean blues of Finding Nemo). ROYGBIV also includes clips from: Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3Cars, Cars 2, Monsters, Inc.Monsters University, A Bug’s Life, Wall-EThe Incredibles, and Ratatouille. Together, even at a mere 1:28, the video shows how color conveys mood, beautifully. Enough yammering. This is much more of a visual experience:

'Enough Said': Julia Louis-Dreyfus Q&A turns into adorable mini-'Seinfeld' reunion -- VIDEO

DREYFUS-HARRIS.jpg

If anyone can make you seek out the bittersweet romantic comedy Enough Said maybe George Costanza’s mother can pressure you into it.

Enough Said, which is in theaters now, stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a massage therapist who discovers that one of her clients (Catherine Keener) is the ex-wife of her new boyfriend (a lovable, lunkish James Gandolfini) and decides to use the relationship to secretly gather intel on her new man.

At a recent Q&A for the Nicole Holofcener film, Louis-Dreyfus talked a lot about her late co-star Gandolfini, whose final lead performance is also one of his most sweet and tender, and making the leap from cringe-comedy like her Emmy-winning role on Veep to a film with a more dramatic and romantic edge.

But then, at the very end, the entire show was stolen by one 85-year-old woman …

Hunting for Easter eggs in Pixar's 'Brave'

Pixar animators are renowned for their attention to detail. Like all of its predecessors, the studio’s latest gem, Brave, features obscure objects from other Pixar features. These hidden ”Easter eggs” transform movie watching into a round of Where’s Waldo.

In one particular scene in Brave (in the photo above), the witch, who specializes in carving wooden bear figurines, whittles a miniature replica of the Pizza Planet delivery truck that has appeared in almost every Pixar feature film since 1995’s Toy Story.

An engraving of Sulley from Monsters, Inc. also appears on a slab of wood in the witch’s home (photo above).

Did you see any other Easter eggs in the film? Let us know in the comments section below.
