Over the years we have sat back with our families, with various sugary goods, and have indulged ourselves in some quality CGI filled entertainment courtesy of Pixar.

“Tease me, tease me, tease me, tease me baby.” Enough of cheesy lyrics from old (but well loved songs), teaser trailers are awesome right?
