According to a sometimes-accurate movie site, Pixar has been tasked with creating a new film in the world of Star Wars.

Latino Review says that they have “no idea what the size or shape of this film will be,” and warns that the film could still be a “long way off” given how much time Pixar takes to plan a story. “We can expect it to take place in the middle of a Venn Diagram between Star Wars and A Pixar Movie, and what that means to you depends on your definition of both,” they write.

The website reporting the news has had several successful scoops over the past few months, so their word can sometimes be trusted.

Then again, it may not come as a surprise that Disney wants Pixar to create a Star Wars movie. When the studio acquired Lucasfilm in 2012 for $4 billion, everyone knew that the high cost meant Disney plans to earn their money back.

The studio is currently at work developing Episodes VII – IX, and the first film will hit theaters December 2015. There are also standalone movies in the works focusing on popular characters like Yoda and Boba Fett which may be released in the years between the Episode movies.

2014 is going to be a quiet year for Pixar because they will not release a new movie until 2015. The Good Dinosaur was scheduled to hit theaters this summer, but the film hit a production snag and was pushed to 2015. In turn, this pushed Finding Dory to 2016.

Pixar within the ‘Star Wars’ world: A good or bad idea?

Again, remember that this is “rumor” status for now.

    This might be intriguing to see what this movie will be about. Like will it be for kids or will Pixar gear it towards a more mature audience? Either way I’m ecstatic for the rebooted Star Wars series and everything that comes with it.

      Pixar usually makes movies for everyone. Not for kids and not for adults. For everyone.

        Very true… and frankly, this can also be said for Star Wars, at least the six movies. Each has their childish elements and more mature themes but any old nostalgic who believes that Star Wars was ever a gritty, adult drama is kidding themselves, and I say that as a lifelong fan because that’s no bad thing. There’s nothing wrong with being lighter, popcorn entertainment, especially when it is still so rooted in classical mythology that there’s a surprising amount of depth for those who want to look for it.

    It could work…i say this because if anyone can make it work its Pixar….but it has to be a separate story.

    O god this is jut gonna add more fuel to the people who keep saying disney is going to ruin star wars…Anyway, I love pixar but I’d rather not have a star wars pixar movie. With all these spin off movies and shows and stuff in the talks they’re going to burn star wars out.

      Let them. Those ones can’t be pleased, they have nothing better to do than complain because they are unhappy with their own lives and need a fantasy world to live in order to feel a sense of stability and control in life.

        Look who’s talking. Aren’t Original Trilogy fanatics like yourself the ones who cry and bitch about the prequels because they “ruined your childhood?” Talk about living a “fantasy world… in order to feel a sense of stability and control in life.”

  • Don’t do it

    no no no please no.

    A few years ago, I would have been very upset with a Pixar or Disney Marvel movie (mostly because it takes a slot from original movies in the pipeline) Flash to 2014 and Big Hero 6 is one of my most anticipated films because of its unique and original vibe so I trust Lasseter.

    The Clone Wars cartoons have been pretty successful and well received (I think) so this approach, in the great Pixar style (not too childish, and with amazing storytelling and visuals) can be a great approach. Let’s wait and see.

    Ironically, PIXAR was one day owned by George Lucas, now they’re doing film for his franchise.

    Why not? Pixar has what it takes to make a Star Wars universe-set movie, but I’d love to see the producers of the Final Fantasy games, Square Enix, make such a film like this! Now THAT would be worth the price of admission…
