‘newt’ Replaces ‘Cars 2’ in 2012
Disney’s big announcement that Cars 2 would move from 2011 to 2012 garnered a lot of attention but the question has since turned to, what will families be offered in 2012?
The answer turns out to be…newt. Slash Film is reporting that the project required more development time so the swap actually benefits the new property.
Sound designer Gary Rydstrom makes his directorial debut with the CGI-animated Pixar production. He previously directed the short film Lifted which audiences saw prior to Ratatouille.
The plot synopsis from the studio: “What happens when the last remaining male and female blue-footed newts on the planet are forced together by science to save the species, and they can’t stand each other? Newt and Brooke embark on a perilous, unpredictable adventure and discover that finding a mate never goes as planned, even when you only have one choice. Love, it turns out, is not a science."
