My flight got in with time to spare, but I was misdirected to where I could register a couple dozen times, so by the time I ran into the “you might not have a seat, but go ahead and take a look” sold-out screening of CARS, director John Lasseter was being presented some ShoWest award. He told the audience that we were seeing the film digitally projected and it must have been a 4k projector or something new because the projection was absolutely gorgeous.
Anyway, he also said that he had a couple surprises for the audience before CARS ran. CARS had just been finished, with Pixar having just thrown the cast and crew completion party 2 days prior, so that was a treat. But the special thing we were seeing was the RATATOUILLE trailer, the very first people outside of the Pixar shareholders to be shown this trailer.
If that has you super excited like me (which I would hope you are), you can read the rest here where he describes the trailer in detail. I don’t want to spoil it for you, so beware you may get spoiled.
However, Quint also says…
I have been forbidden from reviewing CARS, but I am allowed to tell you that I have seen it and yes, I did like it. I really liked it a lot. If I say any more, Walt Disney himself will bust open my hotel room door and his disembodied head, floating in a jar filled with a mixture embryonic fluid and Mountain Dew, will tell his robotic limbs to tear me apart. I can’t have that. I hope you understand.
So that has me superly duperly tremendously exicted!!!! I’M SO FREAKING EXCITED ABOUT SEEING THESE BOTH!!
