A Bugs Life
Hard to believe this film is pretty much a classic! Released in 1998 and loved ever since. We have asked our ClassicFilmReview.com writer, Julie to do a review for us based on the film. This is not from the technical aspect of animation but the wonderful Children’s story offered in A Bug’s Life.
A Bug’s Life (1998) by Julie
Directed by John Lasseter A Bug’s Life is a charming clever and very funny tale about an Ant named Flik (the voice of Dave Foley) who intends to save his colony of Ants on Ant Island from being bullied and terrorized by a nasty gang of Grasshoppers whose leader Hopper (the voice of Kevin Spacey) makes the Ants
Disney-Pixar has released (what is the most likely) final poster for Inside Out. It’s a colorful one, but lacks the innovation of the teaser poster. It’s a simpler design for the more complex premise of the film.
The cover art for the latest in Chronicle Book’s amazing series has been released via Amazon.com. While, covers have been known to change, I think this one looks pretty darn good. The focus is firmly placed on Joy, who is most likely, the main emotion in the film.
The book will include a foreword by Amy Poehler and an introduction by director Pete Docter. The Art of Inside Out will be released on May 26, 2015. Stay tuned for more!
Anger Light Up Action Figure
Tomy will be releasing a collection of toys for both Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur. The Inside Out figures will light up and each come with a unique memory sphere (which will make more sense after you see the film). The toys can be played with individually or can be combined to create a different play experience. More traditional plush will be available too. You can check out more details over at Stitch Kingdom! or The Hollywood Reporter.
Disney-Pixar has released a brand new TV spot for Inside Out. Pete Docter’s latest film will be released on June 19, 2015.
Wall-E Lego design by Angus MacLane
This is a story very near and dear to my heart. We all know Pixarian Angus MacLane is a huge Lego collector and designer (and Wall-E is my favorite Pixar film). He submitted his Wall-E design as part to Lego and it has been selected by the Lego Ideas Review Board! A release date has been announced yet, but check out the video for more details!
Puppies and Pixar. What else could you ask for?
With Inside Out coming out first this year, it’s easy to forget that Pixar has two new films this year. The Good Dinosaur is flying a bit under the radar, but I’m very excited to see more. Disney-Pixar recently released the official logo and a new piece of concept art with Spot and Arlo by Pixarian Huy Nguyen.
The Good Dinosaur, directed by Pete Sohn, hits theaters on November 25, 2015.
As part of Pixar’s Holiday calendar, new concept art for Pete Docter’s Inside Out emerged. This beauty was done by legendary Pixarian Ralph Eggleston and Albert Lozano. So good….
