Josh Cooley to Co-Direct 'Toy Story 4' & Direct 'Inside Out' Short

With the internet a buzz on the latest trailer for Disney and Pixar’s “Inside Out”, Variety online as now mentioned that the Blu-ray edition of the film will feature a new animated short.

In an article titled “10 Animators to Watch,” the website listed Josh Cooley as one to watch. Cooley has worked on past Pixar productions such as “Cars” and “Up.” He just finished work on “Inside Out” as well as directing the “Inside Out” short. The article hints of the upcoming short, with no prior announcement from Disney itself on the short. So one could say, they leaked some pretty exciting information.

Here is where the animated short’s whereabouts were mentioned:

Cooley, who just finished directing a short film set in the world of “Inside Out” that will be on the Blu-ray, began at Pixar as an intern in the story department on “Cars.” He was chosen for that spot by the late Joe Ranft, probably the finest animation storyman of his generation

In addition to a new short, the article also goes on to say that Cooley will co-direct “Toy Story 4″ along side John Lasseter. “When I first saw ‘Toy Story’ I was amazed by the groundbreaking computer-generated animation. But it was the strong storytelling that kept me coming back. ‘Toy Story 4’ will continue that tradition and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it,” said Cooley.
