At CinemaCon this week, the eyes of most were glued to the special presentation of Peter Jackson's THE HOBBIT. In addition to showing approximately ten minutes of footage, they unveiled the first major use of 48fps, a choice that was met with much disdain among the crowd. It's a good thing Pixar was there to announce some incredible news to temper the disappointment.

According to Variety, Pixar's latest project is a Mexican-themed film that focuses on Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. The announcement was made by Pixar chief John Lasseter Tuesday evening, who also revealed that the film will be spearheaded by director Lee Unkrich (TOY STORY 3), and producer Darla K. Anderson.

But don't think you have to wait until 2015 to see a new Pixar film. While this year will see the release of BRAVE, Pixar also announced that May 30, 2014 will see the release of THE GOOD DINOSAUR, directed by Bob Peterson (UP) and produced by John Walker (THE INCREDIBLES). Adding to the mix is an "Untitled Pixar Movie" that will apparently "take you inside the mind" on June 19, 2015.
