It was just yesterday when Pixar previewed their upcoming film slate and today we’ve got new information from two of their future projects. First up, this one is to be taken with a grain of salt, but just after getting our first look at concept art for 2014’s The Good Dinosaur, directed by Up‘s Bob Peterson, some casting rumors have popped up.
As we know, the film will ask the question, “What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct?” Now, Bleeding Cool spotted an update over at Film Dates, which reveal that Lil Wayne, Joan Rivers, John Ratzenberger, Dee Bradley Baker, Tom Kenny and Jason Alexander are all part of the voice cast for the film.
While a few of the above are experienced voice actors, rapper Lil Wayne is certainly the odd man out and seems more of a DreamWorks-esque talent movie than anything else, so we’ll see how this one shakes out. In the meantime, following a fully functional college website, we’ve got a spot for Pixar’s next project, the prequel Monsters University, which welcomes us on campus. Check it out below for the film arriving in June.
