Dinosaurs and the mysteries of the human brain will be the subjects of Pixar Animation Studios’ next two features, scheduled for release in 2013 and 2014.

Disney and Pixar chief creative officer John Lasseter announced the new projects during the D23 expo for Disney fans in Anaheim, California.

The films will follow next year’s Brave and Monsters University, slated for a summer 2013 release. Neither have titles. However, Finding Nemo screenwriter Bob Peterson will direct the first, to center around dinosaurs and to be released for Christmas 2013.

Instead of going back to the dinosaur era, the movie will presupposed that dinosaurs didn’t become extinct. “In our movie, dinosaurs continue to live,” Peterson told fans at the expo.

And in the summer of 2014, the studio plans to release “the untitled Pixar movie that takes you inside the mind,” said the film’s director, Pete Docter. “We are excited to take you to a world that everybody knows but where no one has ever been: the world inside your own mind.”

Pixar showed early footage from Brave, its first fairy tale, during the presentation. Featuring a Scottish princess, it will be the studio’s first film featuring a female protagonist.
