When on the run, she is accompanied by a banished Boov, named Oh, who has accidentally notified the enemies of his whereabouts.
Home is due in theaters March 27th 2015
And secondly we have B.O.O: Bureau of Otherwordly Operations. Okay, brace yourselves for this, because this one has Melissa McCarthy, Seth Rogen and Bill freakin’ Murray on the cast. That’s just yes already, am I right?
B.O.O‘s synopsis reads:
Bureau of Otherworldly Operations (B.O.O.) is a top-secret government agency, which employs ghosts to protect humans from evil hauntings. When two new agents named Jackson Moss and Watts uncover a plot by the agency’s Most Wanted Haunter to destroy B.O.O., they must use their skills to defeat his ghost army and save the world.
The Bureau of Otherwordly Operations is expected to open June 5th 2015.
And that was it for their big announcements. Considering how good How To Train Your Dragon is doing, I can’t wait to see these new offerings. Perhaps Pixar will really have a true rival in the box office? We’ll see. Do either of these excite you? Let us know in the comments!
