No Up teaser on Wall-E

06.03.2008

One of the best parts of any Pixar movie (besides the movie itself and the short film) is the teaser trailer for the next Pixar movie. During CARS we saw RATATOUILLE. During RATATOUILLE we saw WALL-E. And during WALL-E we'll see...BOLT? Despite the fact that UP is Pixar's next release (May, 2009), you won't see an UP trailer during WALL-E. Instead you'll get a trailer for BOLT, the rejiggered version of AMERICAN DOG about a pampered TV star dog whose struggling to find his way back home. John Travolta, Miley Cyrus and Susie Essman voice the cast and it's all well and good, but what gives? No reason on why we'll get no UP but considering it will be released earlier than WALL-E was this year, it can't be that the footage isn't ready. The good news is that we will still be getting a new Pixar short entitled "Presto" about a magician's rabbit who's unhappy with his current job. WALL-E hits theaters on June 27.

Is It Really Disney's Fault?

I don't like this either, but people need to stop blaming Disney. John Lasseter is now the head of animations at Disney since the merger and, from what I hear, has made some positive changes already. He even reopened the 2-d animation department, which Disney previously dismantled, from what I can tell. This is evidenced by the Repunzel and The Princess and the Frog movies that are currently in production. In other words, John Lasseter of Pixar now has a lot of control in Disney, which

This is evidenced by the Repunzel and The Princess and the Frog movies that are currently in production. In other words, John Lasseter of Pixar now has a lot of control in Disney, which means Bolt is actually a movie he supervises. Stop blaming Disney and celebrate the fact that the creative genius behind Pixar now makes decisions for Disney animation.

That being said, this is still a disappointment. I look forward to the early previews of future Pixar releases. However, with the merger and Lasseter's control over animation, both Pixar and Disney, in a way, share future animation projects, so maybe Lasseter and marketing wants to promote a less recognizable Disney release instead? Just a guess, I know, but there doesn't seem to be any answers.

Sounds like another winning animated short, though.

WTF

Bullshit....thats ridiculous. I am a huge Pixar fan....huge. Pixar always releases the teaser for their next film with their current release. I don't give a shit about BOLT on this movie. Pixar's traditions have been a help in keeping their awesomeness. Go figure todays version of Disney to F that up. I really hope stupid shit like this doesn't continue. Pretty soon Disney will have Pixar remaking all there classics in CG animation. ugh....what a shitty bit of news to wake up to.

Strange...

I did not know that about TS2, Vikers. Very interesting. I would have thought Pixar would want to promote UP as early as possible, given its novel subject matter.

Hmm...

Pixar has never missed a due date, even when Toy Story 2 was 9 months away from release date and they threw out the entire movie and started over. Very odd they don't have a trailer for "Up". Hope this doesn't mean the movie is having problems.

Or maybe they will surprise us with an Incredibles 2 trailer...(sigh)...wishful thinking of something that will never happen.
