Bob Peterson will be helming that project, the co-director of 'Up' and the writer of 'Finding Nemo', which poses the notion that an asteroid that changed the course of the Earth missed, meaning that dinosaurs never became extinct.

Then there's 'The Inside Out', a tale set in the mind of a girl, due for June 19, 2015.

Speaking about the project, which is directed by 'Monsters Inc' and 'Up' man Pete Docter, Pixar bigwig John Lasseter said: “[Doctor's] idea is that the emotions of this little girl are the characters and it takes place in the head of this little girl, and shows how they control things that go on. It’s very, very clever and it’s truly unlike anything you’ve ever seen, yet it explains things you’ve seen."

Finally, there's a snap of Lee 'Toy Story 3' Unkrich's so-far untitled project based on the Mexican 'day of the dead' celebrations, 'Dia de los Muertos', due in 2016.
