PIXAR Given Rights To Develop Original 'STAR WARS' Animated Film

The beloved and oscar winning animation studio PIXAR will be teaming up with the Lucas Pictures division of DISNEY to create an animated ‘Star Wars’ picture.

According to the Kellvin Chavez over at Latino Review,  the beloved and oscar winning animation studio Pixar will be teaming up with Lucas Pictures division of Disney to create a movie set in the ‘Star Wars’ universe. This one of the first big moves made by Disney since acquiring the rights to the Star Wars universe. Another move was giving rights to Electronic Arts (EA) to develop a Star Wars interactive universe video game. What the movie will exactly be about is still unknown, but as we all know here at comicbookmovie.com, the possibilities are endless. According to reports Disney itself will remain relatively hands-off in the project and let Pixar cherry pick the storyline they want to do. It’ll be especially interesting to watch this studio, who have created their fair share of beloved characters and franchises, play in someone else’s world.

According to Screen Crush - "We spoke to Pixar's Story Supervisor, Kelsey Mann, last year and he said that he "would love to" do a 'Star Wars' spinoff at Pixar centered around Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon."

However, getting an original Star Wars film from Pixar would mean that the studio will not be releasing an original movie anytime soon, which is a shame because the studio has developed many critically acclaimed films over the years and there will be a significant drought in which Dreamworks can capitalize.

In the meantime, ‘Star Wars: Episode 7‘ will arrive late next year.

What??? Han Solo shoots people... How is that material for a Pixar movie?

I don't like the idea of this at all. Han Solo will be toned down to be more kid friendly... To quote Han Solo himself, "I have a bad feeling about this."

Why doesn't Pixar do a Yoda spin-off movie instead? That would make much more sense.

As this is a Latino Review scoop, I doubt this is real.

@mgeoff88 You're kiding right? I don't remember ever seeing blood in the entire trilogy. For god sakes, Obi Wan disappears when Darth Vader kills him. The Star Wars trilogy isn't dark, it's just mostly mature. Two different things that have nothing to do with each-other.

Maybe they're going to do that "Jar-Jar Binks: Cloud Atlas" that no one's been asking for.

I'm not believing anything til Disney says it's happening.

I'd rather see Pixar come out with original material.

And the only sequel they need to produce is for The Incredibles. [frick] any idea of a Cars 3!

Really? I mean i'm surprised and shocked. I just think it's strange.
Where is that Incredibles sequel?

@AlphaDog Tell that to Greedo. It doesn't matter if there wasn't blood, because people were still killed in the movies. In what Pixar movie has characters been killed off from being shot?

If this is true, I'm guessing this movie will be about a younger Han Solo. Being a smuggler, the guy works for criminals, you know, unsavory characters. It's shoot or be shot in that business. So he will definitely have a blaster pistol handy. Look at how silly he looks in these Pixar inspired pictures, and tell me if it's a good idea.

Like I said, doing a movie spin-off about Yoda would make more sense for Pixar. They could even do it about when he first arrives on Dagobah.

Mark is looking decent actually. I can picture him holding a lightsaber pretty well now. Still I wonder if he will grow a beard though?
