Walt Disney Studios have announced that a new Muppet movie is in the works. They made the announcement at the CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas yesterday.

Director James Bobin will return to steer the ship with a script written by Bobin and Nicholas Stoller. A release date has not been announced.

Also coming is The Good Dinosaur, a Pixar comedy. According to the studio, it’s about what would happen "if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct?"

There’s also an as-yet untitled movie that the studio promises will take audiences "on incredible journeys into extraordinary worlds: from the darkest depths of the ocean to the top of the tepui mountains in South America; from the fictional metropolis of Monstropolis to a futuristic fantasy of outer space.

"From director Pete Docter (Up, Monsters Inc) and producer Jonas Rivera (Up), the inventive new film will take you to a place that everyone knows, but no one has ever seen: the world inside the human mind."
