Calling Docter Pete, calling Docter Pete...
The Lamp has scheduled it's next animated film...
And for all those out there that are screaming about too many sequels, it's an original story. As per their Modus Operandi, the gang up in Emeryville have been very cryptic. No plot details and no information on who is directing or writing it, only the release date: November 27, 2013.
From what I've heard, it's likely the next animated feature from Pete Docter since he's not helming the sequel/prequel to his "Monsters Inc." film. It probably won't be too long before we'll be hearing about the next release of the Mouse's other animation house in Burbank. The one that's coming in 2014.
It'll be interesting to see when that happens...

The Pixar Plan...

It's the dinosaur project that was in the background during the UP promotional video
There is no WDAS feature in the pipeline in 2013?
That has already been announced (Wreck-It Ralph). Honor is talking about what WDAS hasn't been announced yet.
When can we expect to hear more about these films?
Animated Response --
Wreck-It Ralph is for 2012, not 2013. Right now there are two Pixar films slotted for 2013 and no WDAS films. That was the original poster's point.
Actually, "Wreck-it Ralph" is due out holidays of 2012. I don't believe WDAS has a film scheduled for 2013 at this point. Ralph switched places with "Monsters University".
Chris Williams' "King of the Elves" is set for 2013 at WDAS although it has not been officially announced yet.
Weren't those "dinosaur images" in the background from a partnership of Pixar with the Discovery Channel for a documentary series called "Reign of Dinosaurs"?
Yes, all you have to do is go back and look at the past articles that Honor posted about the future of WDAS. King of the Elves is 2013.
Wreck-it Ralph in 2012, King of the Elves in 2013, but what is to follow? Any news for 2014?
"Any news for 2014?"
Well, if J.L. is true-to-form then I expect he'll have another Rescuer's movie out for 2014 ... you know, something which will really bring back the glory days of hand-drawn animation.
I can't imagine them doing another Rescuers sequel without Eva Gabor (god rest her soul). I don't want them to bring back the old glory days of animation. I just want Disney to actually make a good promotable hand drawn film and schedule it at a good time, preferably a non fairytale one.

I think "Susie" was being a little sarcastic about speaking of Lasseter bringing back the "glory days of hand-drawn animation" by making another Rescuer's sequel. But ouch that's a little too close to the mark. By now a lot of us are noticing that John Lasseter doesn't have much of a vision for taking hand-drawn animation into new areas . Princess & Frog was good, it was very "safe" , nice entertaining little film. I enjoyed it, but it didn't really generate that much excitement about a renewed hand-drawn animation dept. And then the follow-up film is ... POOH ? Really J.L. ? Another Winnie the Pooh movie ... yeah right , um no ... that's not the type of film we really needed to reinvigorate hand-drawn animation. So suggesting tongue-in-cheek that Lasseter's idea for the next hand-drawn feature (if there is one) might be another dip into the past , such as doing another Rescuer's sequel, doesn't seem too far-fetched given his track record. But no, I don't think it was seriously being suggested that they'll make another Rescuer's sequel.
Your point: "I just want Disney to actually make a good promotable hand drawn film and schedule it at a good time" is a point of view shared by many of us , I'm sure. I hope that happens , but it seems uncertain now ... so many high hopes in 2006 , but those high hopes have pretty much been unfulfilled.
