We knew back in September that Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich was starting work on a new animated feature at Pixar, but we didn't know what it was until yesterday.

Unkrich's new feature is revealed to be a movie about the Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Other than the little nugget, no other details were forthcoming from the studio. The movie doesn't even have an official title yet.

Since it is still early in the production phase, we probably won't see the movie until 2016 at the earliest.

In other Pixar news, that untitled dinosaur movie unveiled at the D23 Expo last year in August has a title and a release date. The movie is called The Good Dinosaur, and it's scheduled to be released on May 30, 2014.

Directed by Up's co-director Bob Peterson, The Good Dinosaur tells the story of what happens to the dinosaurs if the asteroid that caused them to go extinct actually missed hitting Earth.

Pete Doctor's still untitled inside the mind movie will follow The Good Dinosaur and be released the following year on June 19, 2015. The movie is supposedly about what goes on inside the mind of a young girl, where her various emotions are personified.
