Posted by Simoa • May 30, 2016

New artwork and synopsis have been revealed for Cars 3, courtesy of USA Today. The third installment in the series will return to its roots, with director Brian Fee calling it a “love letter to racing and the American way. We’re inspired by the Americana you see traveling through the South where every small town has a dirt track.”

In Cars 3, Lightning McQueen is no longer the sleek machine he once was. His new trainer is Cruz Ramirez, a yellow racing car who helps him train for the Daytona 500. Owen Wilson will be reprising his role as Lightning, but no one has yet been confirmed for Cruz Ramirez. Cruz is a Hispanic female racing car. No doubt her character will be very interesting to watch and will be another addition to Pixar’s ever growing heroines.

Cars 3 will be racing into theaters on June 16th, 2017.

In the meantime, check out the breathtaking concept art below.

New Finding Dory Concept Art Puts You Right Into The Deep Blue Sea

Posted by Nia • April 19, 2016

The days are getting closer to the release of Pixar’s 17th feature film, Finding Dory. Recently the studio released some stunning concept art that sheds some more light on Dory’s story of searching for her long-lost family. The fun images showcase Dory exploring the vast ocean, a more detailed look at Hank the octopus, a school of stingrays, and both an aerial view and inside look of the aquarium. Even when all of the characters are in a shot, there is a huge sense of isolation when they’re paired against the backgrounds; it’s amazing realizing just how small they are compared to the world around them. There’s also a sense of mystery and adventure to the art. What exactly is happening around the characters that initially sparked the concept art? What is lurking behind the corners of the aquarium? There is so much energy and movement to the pieces that make them worthy of hanging in museum.

What do you think of the concept art? Are you excited for Finding Dory? Let us know in the comments below!
